This is How I Celebrated My BirthdayThursday, May 27, 2010
I had a simple celebration at home on my natal day last Monday, May 24. As I've mentioned in my previous post, I want it just a simple family affair. Few weeks before my birthday, I told Thea, my 4-year old daughter to go home on or before my birthday. She spent the summer vacation with her grandma (my mom) in my hometown. My wish was granted, they arrived last Monday, just in time to celebrate that very special day with me.
I went to the market early in the morning. I also inquired at a bank near our place. My husband and I have been discussing about opening an account at that bank. Unfortunately, the bank personnel told me that I have to present a valid government-issued ID. Even though one of the 2 IDs I presented was issued by a government insurance company, he told me that it is considered as an ATM card. After lunch, I tagged along Thea and my sister at a nearby grocery store to buy ingredients for my recipe and other groceries. By the way, I cooked baked macaroni (for the first time) and it was a success.
I was just a simple celebration but Thea's arrival and my husband's phone call made my day complete.
