Thank y'all for the wonderful birthday wishes! I did have a fantastic birthday, and y'all were part of that. Amber and Mike had a cake made for me with an Alice in Chains cover created for it. As a huge AiC fan, I loved it; it was a very thoughtful present! My sister sent flowers, and it's always nice to get flowers. There was other presents, but it wasn't about the things, but the thoughts. Every e-mail, comment, phone call, text, card, all of it, meant so much to me. So again, thank y'all!
And I really like the idea of giving gifts on my birthday instead. I am going to try to get that going next year!
PS there's an installment on the way, I'm almost done with it--
