Happy Birthday to me!

23 Sep

Happy Birthday to me!

At the time that this post will be published I will be cheering for my alma mater (Notre Dame) at an ungodly early hour (due to the time difference) in the annual rivalry against the University of Michigan. My family is a divided family – Notre Dame vs. Michigan where the taunting and heckling come out every year.

I remember once my grandmother called my father (different sides of the rivalry) and heckled him after Michigan won.  I’m lucky to be able to see the game this year.  After the game I plan on spending the afternoon at a spa.  Even though I am not yet fully unpacked, some “me” time will be the perfect antidote to a busy schedule.

Perhaps my birthday luck will lead the Irish to a victory?  I hope so.

      Thank you (or rather gracias)! Good to hear from you and glad you’re following again. It was a great birthday – made better by so many notes and calls from friends and family.

    Many happy returns of the day 🙂

      Thank you! It was a wonderful day – one of the benefits about living in a different time zone than the majority of my family is that my birthday extends over multiple days. 🙂
