Well, about a month ago I had my birthday! My whole life, my birthday has always been over spring break.  But this year, I actually had to work, all day long!! I had a great time though.  My coworkers took me out to lunch and some of them brought me some treats and cards. That evening we had our traditional family dinner with my d.  Instead of my usual chocolate cake, we had apple pie and ice cream :)

I finally decided what to buy with my birthday money.  It was something I have been eyeing for a very long time: the leatherbound books at Barnes & Noble :)

I got a classics set that included Sherlock Holmes, the Iliad and Odyssey, Shakespeare, Poe, Jane Austen, and Grimm’s Fairy Tales.

I still have a lot more on my wish list, but this will satisfy me for now :)
