Best birthday gift ever

My husband's away on business and it's the typical 'Kennedy zoo' around here, but this morning my son's surprised me by remembering that it's my birthday (possibly prompted by the 7 a.m. phone call their dad made from some airport to remind them?)

Here's the best part: Over breakfast, my boys informed me they're taking me for dinner tonight. Their dad left money in an envelope and after a heated discussion behind a closed bedroom door this morning they've decided they're taking me to (drum roll) ... Joey's Seafood, where, as my 9 year old said with a proud grin, "We want you to order whatever you want!"

So I have a seafood date tonight and I get to spend the entire day writing a scene I woke up thinking about this morning, a scene I can't wait to work on. Who could ask for more?

Hap-hap-happy birthday!!!!

What, you're probably 30 this year, right? Then have 30 little shrimp at that seafood place and have a blast with your kids
who sound great.

Oooh, what a nice birthday you'll have! Bet you your sons will be better company than half the guys I'll date this year (it's been a bad stretch -- LOL)

Happy Bday! What a treat to have handsome young men escort you to dinner! Enjoy. How does it feel to be 32? I'm nervous about hitting that one in a few years. LOLOL!!!

A dinner with two young men, what could be better except writing a scene and ordering whatever you want.

Many happy returns, Holly!

I take the chance to congratulate you and also thank you for your book the Penny Tree.
I'm in France and I spent the last few days reading it.

Have a lovely time with your sons.

Hope you had a lovely birthday, fellow Gemini. Mine was today and I got a cool blender with a spout. I also had a chance to finish your book. It was lovely. I heart Louie.

Thanks for all your kind comments everyone. Birthdays mean little at my age, but I did have a wonderful night with my boys, who mean the world to me :)

Holly Kennedy said...

Cecile -- how nice to have you comment all the way from France. Thank you for popping by.

Chumplet -- I'm glad you enjoyed it. I heart Louie, too!
