Thanks for all the birthday well-wishes! Celebration was pretty low-key because we are broke broke broke until my tax return comes in, and who knows how long that'll take. We just had home-cooked spaghetti together and then watched the first disc of Big Bang Theory. (I got seasons 1 & 2 for my birthday, yay!) And that was quite nice.
We cleaned out the storage unit today, and I unpacked more boxes of books. I definitely need another bookcase. Tomorrow I'm going to start hanging some paintings.
In short, I had a birthday, and it was nothing spectacular, but still good.
And in a month, I get my monkey back. :)
