9:53 AM: twenty-eight

It's a new year! I'm 28 and 1 day old now, and it's time to get happy. I think yesterday was a turning point in my attitude. I've been laying around in a funk for awhile, and I guess I just needed someone to pull me out of it and show me happy again. Well, my friends came through (I shouldn't be surprised--they always do!) and I'm feeling so much more like Shannon again today.

Recall the hug project. My friends decided to take it to the next level and turn my normal, boring cubicle into a huggy one. There were little hugging people (including some with Hugh Grant heads) strung up all over the place. They made a special Hug Board (see on the right) to keep track of my birthday hugs. I got 28 (that's how many I am!) at work and four more later.

Jen made the most amazing (and beautiful) cake ever. Everyone thought it was from a real bakery. Well, it was. The Jen Bakery is my favorite.

I got about nine voicemails from Hugh Grant, aka Mark. I feel very Britishly loved.

Then I had dinner and some game-playing with my best friends.

Mom and Dad sent the most perfect card. Laurie, Allan, and Dave all remembered. It was a good day. And today is happy, too. I'm staying out of the slump.

Thanks, everyone. I have the greatest friends (and family). I know how fortunate I am. I love you all.

    I'm glad you enjoyed your huggy birthday. We figured that would speak your love language :) That reminds me--I forgot to get my hug from you this morning! I'll grab you (literally, haha) after lunch :)
