On Sunday, March 7th, I turned 24 years old... or in Terry's words "You are almost a quarter of a century old!" Gee, thanks for pointing that out!
The day was very relaxing. I woke up, opened my gift from Josh (step extensions for my Wii fit board), watched some shows I had taped from earlier in the week and then took a shower to get ready for the day. I had a brief webcam date with Makayla before Terry and Net arrived. They treated us to lunch at The Cracker Barrel and then we came back to the apartment to watch the remainder of the NASCAR race. After Terry and Net left, Josh and I lounged around the house for the rest of the night, watched the Oscars and went to bed.
A group of volunteers from work got together on Saturnday to work with Habitat for Humanity. This was not my first experience working with HFH, but it was my first working time with the Montgomery County group. The majority of us painted primer on the outside of the house, while a few men helped put up sheet rock inside.
The house we worked on was sponsored by First Baptist Church Conroe and they were very welcoming and friendly.
On Friday, March 5th I received a surprise at work. Josh had sent flowers to celebrate my birthday. I had a box on my desk after returning from the copy room, I noticed it was flowers and read the card, it said "Happy Birthday, I love you and I hope you have a great day! love always, Joshua. P.S. The vase is in your trunk, I thought it would look good on your desk!" -- He was referring to the vase Karl bought us for the wedding. He had snuck it into the trunk of my car that morning before he left for school. I could not leave those beautiful flowers at work so I transported them home in a homemade contraption... they made it home safely.
