I am having a pretty good week. After the Monday What Are You reading Celebration, a fantastic book club meeting last night (review and discussion up later today), and now today…. is my birthday.
I am in a fine festive mood and feel we need a little theme music here before I can move on so hang on while I put some music on…
be right back…
*looking through stacks of music*
Ok… sweet! Here we go:

Oh come on it is 80’s! Whats not to love? 😛
Anyway while I dance around my kitchen table with my coffee cup let me share a happening and a tip….
Last night at book club I apparently dropped my cell phone in the snow. By the time I left 2 1/2 hours later (yeah… we were chatty last night) I found it iced over by my vehicle…. it was functioning but slowly.
Thanks to my son doing the same thing a year ago _ I knew what to do.
I brought it home and put it in a Ziploc of rice. Apparently the rice will draw any moisture out of the phone. The verdict? It is working fine today.
SO – birthday agenda? Nothing great really. I work until 3, then hitting the gym…. home for dinner and then 6:30 I take Chance to Youth Group and myself to class. AT 8 pm I plan to run Chance home and then at 8:15 meet up with a few girlfriends for appetizers for a small but “Woo Hoo its your birthday” gathering. The eating healthy is on hold until the Birthday is over. 😀

Happy birthday, I hope you have a great day (and who doesn’t love a little bit of the 80’s in the morning?)
LOL Bonnie – if you only knew how hard I tried to get the video to plan on the blog – but no…. so had to link it… but yeah…. whats now to love about the 80’s?
(Oh – other than Millie Vanillie)
Thank you 😀
Happy birthday, Sheila!!!!
Thanks Barb! 😛
Happy, happy birthday, Sheila! It’s a great month — week, even — to be born! 😀 Mine wasn’t a huge deal this year, either. But I hope you have a good day.
Oh, I forgot to say: Glad your phone’s OK!
Thanks Hannah – I agree, February is a great month 😀
And thank you about the phone too – I was worried…. its like a life line you know! 😛
Oh, I know! I’d be lost without mine!
Sometimes I’m surprised how many people quite dislike February. It’s almost always been good to me, though!
Happy birthday Sheila! My phone took an accidental swim and I was able to get it (mostly) functioning the same way…the rice seems to really work!
My son lost his overnight once in the snow and that is what the company suggested he try before he returned it for a new one…. it worked slick for him too 😀
Happy Birthday.. Have a great day and a wonderful year ahead..
Thank you! 😀
Happy birthday!! Enjoy every moment – today is all about you.
PS thanks for the drying out the cell phone tip. I will need it one day.
Thank you! I was happy to share the tip! 😉

Happy Birthday Sheila! I was going to wish you an early one last night at book club, but I had a little…ahem…red light problem before the meeting. Anyhoo, have a great one!!
LOL – oh yes Angie the err….. red lights. 😉 Thanks for the birthday wishes! 😀
Happy Birthday, Sheila! Since my husband was also born in Feb. (24th), I’d say it’s a great month to be born.
I agree Rural – and thank you! 😀
Happy Birthday – great song Yesss!! Careful not to spill your coffee on your nicely dried out phone though!
I think i will always have to keep a ziploc with some rice handy just in case!

Happy Birthday! The picture with the sunglasses is great!
Thanks Jill – its funny because when I set this to post I had thought I had pulled the picture because I thought it was cheesy….
later on when I looked at the post comments and seen someone had commented on the glasses I was like – WHAT? Yup – there it is.
Happy, Happy Birthday!
Great choice of birthday song…takes me back!
I have dropped a phone in the washing up bowl(no fear of that now I have a dishwasher) but freezing your mobile is new to me 🙂
