Today I will be celebrating my birthday! I won't tell you how old I am, though. Hint, you can visit my profile if you are really interested how old I am! I don't have too much planned for the day. I will be taking my oldest daughter to the doctor here shortly. She will be having my first grandchild which is due September 14th. Though I know she wishes for it to be sooner, than later. It also marks a week since my father left this earth and went to a joyous place in Heaven. I have been off work since last Friday, and had already planned to be off work today through Monday, prior to my dad's passing. I will be going camping tomorrow and Sunday. Not roughing it type camping. Camper camping, just a place to get a way for a few days. Please share how you typically celebrate your birthday!

Thank you very much. Usually my birthday is just an ordinary day to me. But since I have had a rough couple of weeks, just wanted to take time out for my self this day.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Mine was yesterday:(, getting old. Usually I go out to eat and that's about it. I didn't even do that this year! My mom already did everything for me prior to my actual b-day and my husband gave me money for a Poison concert Tuesday nite. With me not working, that was all I got, which I'm not surprised, but it's still dissapointing none the less. I sometimes go out dancing for my b-day, but not very often...

I hope your day is a good one. You have something really cool to look forward to. I can't imagine having a child, let alone a grandchild. That's extra awesome. You'll be the hippest grandma/nana/gran in the neighborhood. : ) For my birthday, I usually spend it with family. There really is no where else I'd rather be.

Thank you for the Happy Birthday! Sending comfort your way in the loss of your mom. I know I would be devestated at the loss of my mom since she is one of my best friends. Don't get me wrong, I am lost without my dad, but much closer to my mom.

Happy birthday! It is nice to see someone so happy about her birthday. Usually people get angry because they are getting older and they just forget that there isn't another good choice to that. I am having my birthday next week and I am going to eat pizza with my friends.

Happy Birthday! Mine is Monday, August 27th. I usually have dinner with Mom on the day of my b-day. This Saturday, my cousin is throwing a party for me and 3 other friends that have b-days in August. Regardless, I am thankful I have lived another year, tough one or not. There is only one alternative to not getting older and I could do without that one for a long while! PEACE

"Hey, Happy Birthday, terri0824!" said newbiehelper on the 25th of August, 1 day LATE for terri0824's Birthday! Happy Belated Birthday! :) I don't celebrate my Birthday very often - I usually remember my Birthday about 2 days after my Birthday, once a friend calls up to ask, "Hey what did you do for your Birthday?"

HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I'm sorry for your dad's passing. My mom passed away a week AFTER my birthday 22 years ago July, so unfortunately those thoughts come on my birthday every year. Don't really do special stuff anymore on my b-day. I think as I've gotten older, doesn't seem as important. On a better note, congratulations! on your first grandchild. Sept. 14 is not very far away. My son got married a few months ago and I'm just anxiously anticipating the day when they give me grandbaby news. They just keep saying "not for a few years" but I can still hope, right? Hope your day was awesome and have fun on your camping trip!:)
