Happy Birthday to me today. I am getting this list together a little early so I hopefully won’t have to do any blogging on my birthday. Not that I don’t love it, but some days, you just need a break. We are going to see a program at the library today presented by Wolfwood, a hybrid wolf sanctuary. Since I love animal rescue, this is right up my alley, and there will be two wolf hybrid ambassadors to meet and greet. I can’t wait. I also get a night out with the family at my favorite Mexican restaurant. If they find out it’s my birthday, I’ll have to wear a sombrero while they sing a Mexican version of Happy Birthday.
