Head Spinning Stuff!

Oh man! Did I have one of the funnest weeks of my life. My friends and family were joking around about how this isn't even a milestone birthday, yet it has been one of the best! I have you all and my family to thank for that.
But that might be tomorrows post! Today (since it's been awhile) I thought I would jump back in the swing of things, you know get back to a little blogging "normalcy" (well what I consider normal) and enlighten you once again with my great wisdom. Alright, you know me better than that. But who knows, you might learn something.

This week I learned that......

1. ....people you've never met, really can care about you!

2. ....having 3 birthday cakes in a week probably, no more like definitely, isn't a good idea when you are trying to lose weight. (I told you, I didn't just celebrate all week long on my blog I did it here too!)

3. ....holding onto a tube with two other grown women, while being pulled really fast behind a boat, can cause you to break out in hysterical laughter!

4. ...being in the middle of two other women while riding a jet ski can also make you break out into hysterical laughter.

5. ..... red means record and green doesn't on our video camera! *sigh*

6. ..... little droplets of rain can feel like bb's hitting you when going really fast in a boat! OUCH!

7. ....leftover cake for breakfast just doesn't sound that good to me this morning! And trust me it usually does.

8. ....you really can stretch your birthday over the course of a week if you try hard enough! Yeah me! LOL

9.... your 7 year old will surprise you by jumping off a dock 8 feet above the water, with his Dad. All the while completely freaking out his Mother!

I have more but I'll save some for another day!!!!
Are you walking away a little wiser? Okay did you at least smile? Good!

  1. LOL!! Awesome post...I learned something today too! Reading about a sister's adventures during her bday week, which includes the tubing with two other women, can make me really LOL! It's not just an expression anymore! :)

  2. Ok, I was laughing thinking aobut the three of you on the tube. I have to check yesterdays post to see if you showed any pictures. Glad you had a great birthday week my friend.

  3. Yes-smiles here! I bet the tube was a lot of fun. I've been hit with rain like that before-you are so right-ouch!
    Happy Tuesday:)

  4. I learned that you are a pretty awesome person:-)

  5. I personally believe that one should celebrate their birthday over a week. It makes it that much more enjoyable and memorable.

    Love all the memories you shared with us that took place over your birthday week.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  6. Your lessons made me smile. I can totally picture you all cracking up on the tube and jetski. I think our video camera is the same - it doesn't make sense to me either. Red means stop, green means go.

  7. Kim,

    I left the birthday party details for my 16 year olds on my blog today and surprisingly we did an Alice in Wonderland theme complete with a Mad Hatter Tea Party room!

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  8. Sounds like an awesome birthday week!! Happy Belated!!

  9. Wow, you learned a lot this week. :P (I really don't know what else to say.)Uh, Thanks for sharing!!!

  10. Sounds like a wonderful birthday week even if you are tired of cake!

  11. Lately, you've been a source of sunshine for me Kim. It sounds like you all had such a fun time celebrating your birthday. I have a real life friend who loves to drag all of our birthdays out so we can fun for a week. She's so much fun too.

    But I really learned much about you this week and I have to say I think you're super.

  12. sounds like you had a great week

  13. Sounds like you celebrated in style. What fun things you did. I haven't gone tubing in a long time. When I did, it sure was fun.

  14. I am totally cracking up at you and yes! I have been on a (we call it a) water weenie and I don't think I have EVER laughed as hard in my life!!! There is just something about people trying to get UP onto something at the same time in the water that brings out the hysterical laughter in us is there?

    and YES people that you don't really know really do care about you!!! I am sooo glad you had such a great bday week!!

    love you my friend!

  15. Wow, it sounds like you've had such a great week!

    Hey, you can't beat three cakes!

  16. I definitely smiled my expert birthday celebratin' friend!! And I do believe in the birthday week, and it does mean a full 7 days! However, some friends suggested that at 40 you get a whole birthday month - so Woo Hoo for us next year my friend!! Just think of the weight we can gain in a month of celebrating! :)

    I like learning from you - especially since I didn't learn much riding in the car today.

    Big crazy-tubin-woman-knows-how-to-celebrate hugs to you! :)

  17. Great lessons.

    Happy Birthday from Ireland.
