some things DO improve with age.

Today is my birthday. let it be known.

i plan to do a big heap of nothing. followed by more lounging. Mr. Belle is in charge of food. I am not dressed at 1:10 pm. i may or may not make a chocolate cake this afternoon. There may be a bath and a nap in my future (i think Mr. B bought me bubble bath and fluffy socks, at my request).

Here are some virtual gifts i’ve received so far from sober penpals.

HappierLikeThis: "Here's a birthday reminder of your sober bakery!"

I want to put this online, to hold myself accountable. I want to document the noise in my head. I’m tired of thinking about drinking. date of last drink: june 30, 2012

  1. Happy Birthday! I second Anonymous’ comment on ice cream in the tub. There’s something decadent and wonderful-sounding about that! 🙂

  2. Happy Birthday, Belle! Enjoy your lovely day!!
    I love all of your Birthday messages…Charlie Brown is still so cool!

  3. Happy Birthday to you too! Today is my birthday as well. I am a “lurker” of your blog for the last month or so;) Sagittarius rock… Day 85 for me and I am confident I will make 100 and will join the challenge for the next 100. Life is good

  4. Happy birthday! Happy birthday to someone who has inspired & supported so many, who deserves 28947 gallons of ice cream in a tub fit for the Queen. Pardon my language but – – you fucking rock, birthday girl! XO

  5. Sent my sober missive earlier, didn’t realize today was your day of days! Hope it is the happiest birthday ever! All the best to Belle!
