What a difference

It is true, one day can make such a difference. I had a co-worker take a picture of me yesterday at work specifically for use in this post that I had planned for today. I did not know what a significance this picture would have on my plans for the post for today.









I am going to keep you in suspense for a while.




The only way I can think of doing this is to put much white space in between the sentences.









Are your ready, do you really what to know what a difference one day makes????







Well here it is, remember the picture you saw at the beginning of the post??? Well that was a picture of me on my last day of my 40th decade of my life.


This is what I walked into today:

My plans were changed significantly by my co-workers, I was going to have another picture of


myself taken and put the two pictures on my blog as a post for my 50th birthday but my co-workers wanted to do it up big and they did. This is how they decorated my two operatories for the day.

Here is me in of the rooms.



This is me with the most wonderful birthday cake I have ever had. It is some sort of Russian cake. My co-worker Yulia had this cake made for me as my present. WOW!!! What a cake. It is just delicious.




A picture of just the cake. I just can't even begin to explain how good this cake it. Just know that is is good!!!!!!!!!!!!!
All day long, inside of each of my charts they had fun facts regarding the year 1958. We went to lunch at my favorite Thai restaurant, and had many goodies at the office. What a great birthday at work today.
Last night we went out with friends and they gave me a wonderful gift of Vancouver Canuks stuff. Oh what a great birthday. 5o isn't so bad.

Oh boy - better over a month late than never, right? Looks like you had a marvelous birthday. So how do you like being in your 50's? If you are like me, you will enjoy these "older" years so much more than you enjoyed the younger ones!
