Random But Hopefully Useful Pieces Of Information

Thanks, Everyone, for the birthday love! I had a really awesome birthday, and the usual post-birthday let-down has been completely abated by the fact that we are leaving for Disneyland tomorrow morning, so I am a happy 31 year old. Ian made breakfast for me yesterday, I worked at the preschool in the 100 degree heat (no, thank you, Global Warming), and then my parents babysat while Ian and I went out to dinner with some friends of ours. Between us, our friends and we (can that possibly be grammatically correct? and is that even how you spell grammatically? Is grammatically even a word? Help.) have 6.5 children, so this was our first childless dinner together (not counting the fetus, who sort of goes wherever his mom goes right now) in years and years. And it was great fun. My friends brought me flowers, and then this old man at the next table asked why, and then he insisted on leading the entire restaurant in an extraordinarily loud round of "Happy Birthday". It was weird and embarrassing, but also sort of friendly, but possibly slightly more embarrassing than it was friendly.
Anyway, we are leaving for Disneyland in the morning, so we will once again be outside the blogosphere for awhile. Fret not, however, but be of good cheer. This is our last trip for the foreseeable future, and there will be cute pictures of frolicking cousins to look forward to, and we have a list provided by Godfather Mike of Disneyland must-sees, so our trip will be comprehensive. Plus, tomorrow is Ian and my 9th anniversary, and I have provided a small slide show for your viewing pleasure. Seeya on the flip side.

I was hoping you would take me with you. I don't take up much room in a suitcase. But of course, if you need me to guard the house, I am more than happy to help out once again. See you when you get back.
