I'm Back and I'm Now 32!

Okay, okay, okay...I have taken a break from blogging. And while a lot has gone since I last blogged, I have been too busy to tell you about it. I am now done with my temporary job at the church, which helps out a ton in the time area, so I am ready to get back to filling you all in on my odd thoughts and the events of the Barrett's lives.

So I will start with "now" and then take the next week or two to fill you in on the last month and a half.

I turned 32 yesterday. I had a great day. It started with our Saturday being spent with my brother and SIL, Mark and Teri. We watched the great college football game of the year - Ohio State v. Michigan. FUN!! (Have I mentioned I love college football?) Later that night we got UFC on payperview and watched Matt Hughes lose his title. I love sports and I love hanging out with Mark and Teri, so it was a good day.

Yesterday, my actual bday, we went to church and then went to my dad and stepmom's for tacos and ice cream pie. Yummy food, fun conversation. Then came home, took a little nap in front of the NFL on my tv, to only wake up to my mom and Tom coming over for homemade pizza, presents, and Dairy Queen ice cream cake. WOW! My mom told me she hasn't spent a bday with me in 15 years!! All told, I got a massage from my boys, a giftcard to a spa, flowers, cool pampered chef pieces, a Precious Moments...I am blessed. But I don't consider myself simply blessed b/c of the gifts. I consider myself blessed b/c I was finally able to with my family on my bday. It meant a lot to me. Most touching- it meant a lot to everyone else.

I love living here in Colorado!
