Turning 42

I was not going to go to the pool today but Monel texted me last night and said he was baking for my birthday – he made me a taco shaped cake and Ruth came by after class.

When I got home Paul had decorated the front hallway with a sign and streamers and a nice present.

I got emails from my mom and brother – numerous birthday wishes on face book have 35 still to look at and reply to – posts on 2 message boards – snorkel trip to Hol Chan and more. I decided to put myself on bare minimum work today.

My friend Monique always said ” a girls got a right to change her mind” So after hanging out with Dick for a few hours this aft I took her words to heart and decided instead of getting everyone to do take out on a dock tonight and sky  watch – I just wanted to chill out quietly at home and order in from Shelly – a badly stubbed toe was good reason to chill. Cindy Paul and I watched Andrew Zimmern Bizarre Belize World on Travel Channel.

  2. Thanks for the birthday wishes Harold.

    A big part of the garbage problem is lack of proper roads for trash pick up. That area in particular was never meant to be lived in for many reasons but they went ahead and let that happen anyways and as a result there are a whole bunch of issues that need to be fixed.
