Happy Birthday to Me!

I bought new phones the other day. We now have an answering machine. I haven't recorded a message on it yet, but the phone has obviously been returned by someone else.....there was already a message on it, and the only instruction manual was in spanish. HA! So, dh called collect this morning to wish me happy birthday. I'm having major modem issues, so he couldn't get through. He called my Dad in a panic. Here's how the conversation went:

Mike: Did Ang change our phone number?

Dad: I don't think so, but let me check.

Mike: This is the number I called......

Dad: No, that's still the right one.

Mike: An answering machine picked up. We don't have an answering machine. It was a MAN'S voice on the recording!!!!!

Dad: Maybe she's out shopping!

Too funny. He said he was in a bit of panic until he got through to me. lol. Then he assured me, he was rather certain I wasn't out shopping.....it was only 8:30am. lol. I'm sure it'll be the most expensive birthday wish I'll ever get, but that's OK....it's worth it. :-)
Check out this Tim McGraw song. He performed it on the ACMs last night. I'm not even sure if it's been recorded. I'll warn you....I cried buckets....http://youtube.com/watch?v=j7ixC-LYDGc
. I'll be buying that CD when it comes out, that's for sure. I love Tim. I've seen him in concert a couple of times. One of these days I"ll make it to a Soul2Soul concert. :-)
Mike is doing well. He's traveling a bit this week, which I hate. He had to fly via chopper to some other FOB, in the middle of the night. They dropped him off at the new FOB and flew away. He had no idea where he was supposed to go, and he was the only person who got off the bird. He thought to himself, "there are 360 degrees in a circle. Which degree should I choose to walk?" lol. He finally found a shack with some people in it. Of course, they did'nt know anything about his class, but they sent it on a mission to find someone who might know. By time he found his class, he was 30 minutes late. He hates to be late. lol
The kids are baking me a cake. What a mess. HA! :-) We're going to Outback for dinner. Yumm-o. Did I mention this is the 3rd birthday in a row I've spent without Mike? He'll be gone for my next birthday too. Sigh. I will just be thankful that he'll only miss one round of the kids birthdays, eh? Until next time........
