Today is my birthday!

It's also Angel's.

I'm not ashamed to say that I am 36 years old and Angel is 32.

He is still the man he was when I met him at his tender age of 21 (at least he could buy me beer).

The only difference is that we have children and he drinks less....A LOT less. He still cares and loves me very much, maybe even more now, and I feel like he is more appreciative. I know I can't imagine my life without him.

We celebrated last night with my grandmother at her house (it's her birthday too) by having a BBQ. There were 3 cakes. One was a super chocolate cake...mmmm. Another was made by my mother in was an orange cake with homemade orange frosting and the last was made by our cousin Amy. It was Angel food cake with homemade whipped cream frosting, strawberries, blackberries and raspberries all over it. They were all delicious.

Today, we slept in and then got the kids ready to go have lunch together as a family. We went to Golden Corral Buffet.

We got back home and I took a nap (I actually ate myself into a food coma) and then I hear Angel and our Uncle Benny (along with another man I never met) banging on some pipes in the hall. Apparently our water heater was on the fritz and all the pipes were clogged. Water was all over the hall. They had to take it out, put in new pipes and we had to purchase a new water heater. There goes $500. Looks like that is our birthday present. At least now we may be able to take hot showers.

Since we inherited this house....we knew it was going to be a project. We knew the water pressure was very low and that we were going to have problems with the plumbing...of course...not like THIS!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMA IMELDA! many of you can buy 5 gallons of water for .75? Each gallon here is .15.

I don't know if you can see it...The sign on top says the price of gas is $2.15. Of course, with the free card..gas is $2.12.

P.S. I was the previous post.
