Wonderful Month of May

May is an exciting month here at Steingruebl World Enterprises. We get three big celebrations during the first part of the month. My birthday on the 4th, Mother's Day somewhere after that, and our wedding anniversary on the 18th. Wahoo! All of that and springtime too!

Many thanks to everyone who sent along birthday wishes-it was indeed a lovely day. We had a fantastically relaxed day together which was just about perfect. Except for the Sharks losing in quadruple overtime, but they're forgiven. That wasn't nearly as stressful as it could have been, as Elise and Andy presented me with a back-massaging chair cushion.

As an after-the-fact bonus, I learned from Wil Wheaton that I'm born on Jedi Day! Quoth he:

Oh! Please enjoy this moment from lunch, which I sent to Twitter: Anne: It's Jedi day! Me: What? Anne: May the Fourth be with you. Me: OMG I am so sending that to Twitter.

One can get the context of this here.
(I would also like to mention that his latest book is a great read, and his brother Jeremy takes pictures that make me homesick and happy all at once.)

Mother's Day is coming up, and I have no idea what we'll be doing, but I suspect that my fantastic family will find some way to avoid the brunchtime crowds and perhaps concoct a surprise breakfast while I sleep in. For example.

We've been shopping for our anniversary present to ourselves, and made the purchase today. I'm not telling what it is until the 18th, though. We'll be going out to dinner, just the two of us, on the 16th. Most likely after I attend an orientation for a cat rescue organization. We haven't planned anything exciting for the 18th yet, though. If you have (tasteful) suggestions please feel free to leave 'em in the comments.

There you have it-a round up of some of the wonderful parts of our May. I hope yours is set to be exciting and fun, too.
