Well, It's My Birthday...

It's my birthday now that the clock has inched past midnight. I'm now (gasp, choke) 55 and that means I'm eligible for senior discounts at a few more places lol! Hubby gave me a choice for my birthday present--new 6 panel doors on the bathroom and linen closet or a Kindle Fire. I chose the doors because I have been waiting for them for more than a few years. Last year hubby decided he was going to retire and we would live off of his military retirement check so things have been tight and our little home improvement projects have slowed way down and so I decided that it was less selfish of me to have the money spent on the house and then it would be for something just for me. I have saved almost half of what I need for a Kindle Fire in gift cards anyway.

Back to my birthday stuff. I was the oldest granddaughter in my  mom's family and I was born on my grandma's birthday. Grandma was one special lady--very spiritual and full of love for her family. Here's an old picture of my grandmother, grandfather, my siblings and 4-eyed me on one of our joint birthdays.

Have a great day everyone!


  1. Congratulations, I have birthday on Friday!!
    Have a nice day

  2. Happy, happy birthday, Sharon! You're only a few months older than I am, so I'll be catching up shortly.

    I haven't been by in a while and I love this new look. The picture/banner is hilarious!

  3. Almost forgot. I'm still living off my military retirement too, augmented with a bit of writing income. It's hard with a house that's falling down around me, but I make do.

    I've been saving my amazon cards and have enough for a Kindle, but I'm still undecided as I have so many more things that I need more. If you want tips to get more free gift cards, hit me up!

  4. Happy Birthday, I hope you have a wonderful day today and a blessed year. Enjoy a big slice of cake and scoop of ice cream! :-)
