Happy Birthday to Me

Today is my birthday and I'm spending it in a way that is fun for me. Last night I discovered how to create my own graphics in Photo Explosion, a program I requested for Christmas (at $40 it was MUCH cheaper, but does similar things as, PhotoShop). So today, I've been working on a new blog design for my Homeschool Distractions blog. I have a new header up that I created last night. The rest is still in the works. It will be colorful and fun. My husband thinks it's distracting which is just perfect with my blog titles. LOL

Aside from that, I went to taekwondo class this morning. Master Park says I'm ready to test for my yellow belt. I'm ready except that some of the self-defense techniques (not normally required for belt testing but is for me) are still hard to do and I'm a little nervous about breaking the board. I've only had one practice at breaking...today. I also found out that I don't get to break a little board like the kids do.

Tonight, we are going out for dinner. We'll be having dessert first at this bakery that I recently read about. They close early which is why we are having dessert first. Then we'll be heading down the street to this nice gourmet wood-fired pizza place.

Afterwards, I'll probably let the kids watch Charlie Brown's Valentine tonight (on ABC at 8pm) followed by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory while I play on the computer some more.

Happy Birthday!!! I hope you had a wonderful day. Your new header looks very nice, I love the upside down flower. Congrats on being ready to test for your yellow belt, that's great! Farrelli's is where one of my little brothers works (at the Sumner one) did you like the pizza? I hope you did and that dessert at Corina Bakery was good also. I hope the kids had fun watching Charlie Brown & Charlie & the Chocolate Factory...both are cute movies. Talk to you later :)

Happy Birthday Auntie JoAnn!.

I thought I'd throw the nice auntie part in there. I hope you had a great day, I didn't realize that your birthday was so soon. Seems like everyone's birthdays in your house are clumped together!
