My driver license expires Monday and even though I did the renew by mail thing in plenty of time, my new license hasn't come yet. Being that I am me, that doesn't surprise me. But also being that I am me, I think it means I should not drive or even get near a car until my license comes. The most shocking thing was that just now when I went to the DMV website to find out what to do if my license hasn't come yet, I found out it is DRIVER LICENSE not Driver's License or even Drivers License. Who says driver license? I looked at my old driver license and sure enough, right there for all these years there has been no s. I'm cringing that I've been saying it wrong for all these years.
Also on Monday is my birthday. I have no plan- or plan with an s- to do anything. I don't even have a cake planned or dreamed up. I'd actually planned a few things to celebrate being alive this month but everything I planned ended up not happening and that is not a sign I ignore, ever. And, there was a moment during all the kitchen goings on (and the kitchen is still going on) and my husband getting injured again, that I realized I am the planner, and the baker, and the birthday event maker, and that maybe in a few months when it is not expected, it will be a good time to have that cake. This cake baker is tired. Around here, things don't seem to happen just right on the calendar day they are intended to. That's ok. I think if things did go right according to calendar, it would be a sure sign of doom because it's just not how things work here.
I'm aiming for a day with the least amount of annoyance possible. If that happens, it will be be the best birthday. If a cake happens during that 24 hour period, that will be a bonus.
