It was back to work on Thursday.  I woke up at 7:00 feeling great, but by the time I got to work at 11:30 I was ready for a nap.  Fortunately it wasn't really busy and I had lots of help.  I worked my way through most of the pile on my desk.  I still have a lot to do.  I don't know where everything comes from.  It just seems to pile up and pile up faster than I can do it.

I ended up eating all day.  I was trying to be healthy and brought carrots and apples to eat for lunch.  I ended up eating that plus popcorn, peanuts, cookies, and snack mix.  This has got to end once the holiday season is over.

I was surprised when I walked in to see a cake on the table.  Here Bob had bought me a birthday cake for the branch to celebrate my birthday.  Diane brought me a gift bag full of sweet little items for my birthday -- nail polish, foot massaging creme, lip balm, etc.  So nice of her.  Around 4:00 Bob and Diane lit the candles and everyone sang to me.  It was so great that they remembered.

They put in 6 candles -- one for each decade.  I couldn't blow them all out in one breath though.  :(

First Bob tried lighting the candles.

But Diane finished it off.

It was a good cake.

It was my late night so I didn't get home until 8:30.  Joe's stomach was upset so I made him some chicken noodle soup and I had some peanut noodles.  I wasn't really hungry after eating all day so that was perfect.

I was going to try to do some cleaning up but again I was so tired I went to bed around 10:30.  There's always the weekend.  But then, that's going to be busy too.  I'll have to see what I can get done tonight when I get home from work.

    I empathize with the eating.With Russ on vacation,we have 'lunch'.I put it that way as we get burgers,sandwiches,something more than I eat when alone.I get a bowl of cereal or (at the SPCA) a bagel. I'll be joining you in cutting back after the holidays.
