Monday is my birthday. I thought this year I would like to spend it not worrying about the broken water heater, putting food on the table, refilling meds, home repairs or any of the other every day stressors. This year I want to do something for me. Since I am sort of a shut in and most of my friends and my entire family are online I thought I would reach out to them this way. You can help make my day a little more fun.

In the neighborhood I raised my kids in someone would pin a dollar on someone who was having a birthday. Others would see it and add a dollar. I don’t know much about the history of this tradition but I have carried it through even after moving on. My kids always got more than me… hmmm. It is impossible for you to actually pin a dollar on me through your keyboard so consider this the virtual way to do so. This is just for fun so please don’t feel obligated. I will not promise all of the money will be spent on me. Hey, If I get enough and we need groceries… I am not a selfish person. It is my birthday though and I promise to spend at least some of it on me. Let’s just throw it out there and see what happens.

My younger brother's birthday is a couple days before mine and growing up we shared birthdays. Since I left home I have only had one birthday party where people actually showed up (thanks again Chris). Don't get me wrong. I have thrown some pretty elaborate parties but nobody has shown up. I seem to be plagued with the Wagoner curse or something. My brothers have also thrown parties and invited friends over for their birthdays and they too get ignored on their birthdays. Having said that you can see I am not really expecting anything to come of this. I just thought I would throw it out there. You can help prove me wrong. You can help break the curse and actually donate something. That would be cool. Oh, well, six in one, half dozen in the other. I have thrown it out there. It is up to you if you want to pick it up or not. It would be so cool if you did. Oh, and thanks ahead of time if you do. Have a great day and Happy Un-birthday to you!
