Happy Birthday to J and my first day at work

as per Dawn's request here is a picture of me before leaving for my first day of work, See how nice and bright my brand new blouse is? well all I can say is thank goodness for tide stick pens and the girl at work who had one after I dribbled coffee which of course landed on the "shelf" not to be outdone by the diet coke that landed there later in the afternoon!!! uh hem, never said I wasn't a slob!!!!
My first day went really well. No feelings of dread and oh my goodness I have made a mistake, nope not one. Everything went really well and I am extremely confident that this was the right decision and the right place for me to work.
The thing or man as it were that makes it all the more easier is J. He got up with me early this morning and had toast and coffee ready for me when I got out of the shower. He got the girls ready for school, fed them breakfast and made their lunches. He even made mine. Today on his 34th birthday I have now known him for half of his life and I love every minute I have had the pleasure of knowing him. He is a fantastic father and a terrific husband. He is my best friend with "privileges" :) and I love every square inch of him. I know he hates me having to go to work and having him be sick has been a very hard 3 months, on all of us but mostly him and yet he has handled himself with so much dignity and I love him for it. Well I just plain love him. I am proud to stand next to him on this journey of ours put my hand into his and say "what's next?" and look forward to spending the rest of our lives together!
Happy Birthday Baby!

What a lovely picture of you. J is a lucky man (almost as lucky as me)! The two of you sound like such a perfect match. I love it when that happens!

You look FABULOUS!! I like your blouse, you're very pretty in it. LOVE your adorable post on J's birthday wishes - your marriage is truly inspiring to me. Happy b-day to him btw!

And I understand what you mean about the movie thing...and I don't understand why people want to see all of that and allow their kids to be subjected to all the violence. No wonder we have so many youth crisis!!
