A quiet time

A very nice birthday - I actually liked working because I often spend a large part of my birthday feeling vaguely discontented.
So it was a nice day, except for the hour we couldn't find middle child. He had missed the bus and even after being told we would come and get him, panicked when the office staff left so tried to walk home. Got lost, ended up at the Charter Communications building and they called and DH went and got him.
All's well that ends well.
Cake and wine for dinner. The family had a more traditional meal, but I really only wanted a glass of wine and cake. So that's what I had. 

Also, took the dogs for a long walk this morning, and while it was nice outside, it is still kinda CHILLY out there. 
Tomorrow is a laundry-clean the house-clean the dogs- get lots done kinda day. I hope it turns out that way.

Cake and wine WORKS. Happy Birthday.

Belated Happy Birthday wishes. Gotta love a day when you find the missing child relatively quickly. Means the heart rate settles more quickly ;-)

Happy belated birthday!
I had a missing child in middle school once... it's nerve-wracking! Glad he was okay.

Thanks for all the warm wishes.
Now that same child is insisting he could walk home from school...yea, don't think so.
