This is a big week in my household. All three of its occupants celebrate their birthdays. Specks is the first to get to celebrate. His birthday was Sunday (3/15) and he turned six! We celebrated by going for a very long, fun walk and then climbing a 700ft sand dune. Specks is all about the adventure. He also ate way too many treats and napped with me on the couch. Perfection :)
Today, we celebrate another exciting birthday. Cody officially enters his mid-twenties today...such a youngster! I wish more than anything that he was here to celebrate with me. We will be spending lots of time on FaceTime today. I will most likely sing to him, which he will pretend to hate. He will spend the day working and staying busy. Luckily, he is in Juneau with all of our friends so they will treat him to a fun birthday celebration this evening. More than anything, I hope this year brings him love and happiness. I hope he gets to go back to college this year. I hope he climbs a few mountains this year. And I hope he enjoys every minute of time with Specks and I this year.
Finally, we will wrap-up the birthday extravaganza on Wednesday with my birthday. This year will be odd for me. I've never spent a birthday alone, much less hundreds of miles from family or Cody. I may venture out for dinner with a few of my local friends. It should be a very low key affair. I'll go home to Specks and get in some cuddle-time. Not altogether a bad thing. I'm happy to be a year older and I am happy to have a new year to work on goals and aspirations that I have for myself.
All in all, it should be a pretty nice week.
Your turn...How do you celebrate the birthdays of your furry friends?
