Happy Birthday to Me!

Well I had a great birthday weekend and got tons of good wishes on Twitter, Facebook, and several social networks. My best 'gift" was a birthday poem written for me by Gracefullady, aka Mary from the Just Finish website.

Happy Birthday to Kelownagurl
A spirit that really shines
Indulge in your favorite pleasures
Dark chocolate some tasty fine wines.
May today be filled with happiness
Get out and cycle or swim and run
Enjoy every moment remember
You're always number one!
And when this day is over
and the celebration is through
May the year that lie ahead
Be a personal best for you.

I am honoured to know so many wonderful people in real life and online and I appreciate all the good wishes about my birthday, as well as my current job situation.

For anyone who doesn't follow me on twitter and/or listen to my podcast, I got my 'pink slip' on Monday. I am not too worried about it because I am first on the recall list for my current school and a lot can happen, plus I am guaranteed a job in the district so I WILL be teaching someplace in the fall. Nevertheless, it's still a stressful situation with all the waiting etc and I'll be glad when everything is finalized and I know what I'm doing next year. I'll keep you posted as new events arise. :)
