Friday the 13th... birthday

Ever wonder why people believe Friday the 13th to be an unlucky day? You can read more about it here at How Stuff Works.

As for me I really was born on a Friday the 13th and every couple years it comes around that way again. No big plans for celebrating, unfortunately it's another busy day. I will be working during the day and attending a meeting at the kids school in the evening. I did manage to arrange my kids a sleepover at their aunt's house so Bob and I can do something fun afterward.


Look at what I got as a gift...this darling orange Nano i-Pod. Well perhaps I should clarify...

...I sort of appropriated it from Bob. For all the years we have been together I've made a habit of keeping promotional stuff that he would get from work. It started very early on, before we were married, one evening he lent me his blue Adidas jacket ... I continued to wear it for the next 5 years. Then there are the occasional pens, mugs, and such all making there way as mine over time. Bob says he doesn't mind, he says he thinks it's cute...(more like my wife is a klepto and I can't do anything about it since we are legally married). So back to the Nano. Bob has been spending big university bucks with a software company and in return they sent him this Nano with the company name engraved on the back. I was so intrigued by it when it came in the mail Bob asked if I wanted it, I agreed but only as a birthday gift..(those little stinkers are expensive). Luckily he agreed, what a deal... I got music to take to work PLUS I didn't have to come up with gift ideas for my birthday..yippee.

So there you have it you now know I'm 39, I was born on a Friday the 13th, and I steal all my hubby's best stuff...

Gosh, I think I would too if I were you...he sounds like a real treasure trove of "things" worth "borrowing" from.

Enjoy it.

Dorthe- Thank you I hope your gift got there safe and sound.

Rose-.."borrow"...hehehe

Carla- I think the silver is safe, when I'm out and about it's usually pens that I um... appropriate...not on purpose of course.
