Thoughts and excerpts from the mind of Jeannette Jonic

Update: Taking a Short Break!

Sorry, getting ready to go home for the weekend to celebrate my brother’s birthday, so no excerpt today!

And writing a very quick update post, so no picture today, either. Sorry about that! 🙁 Regular posts will resume Tuesday, I swear!

Our family tradition for birthday celebrations usually include going out to eat as a family and decorating the house with streamers and balloons the night before. And, for me personally, they also usually include slacking off work (tee hee)!

(But… I got past the 50-page mark in TVB today, so… that’s good, right? And good work deserves a break now and then, right? Like right now, right? Right! Good talk, good talk. -pats self congratulatorially on the back-)

What are some of your birthday/family traditions? Let me know in the comments section below!

From Him, To Him

    That must have been fun. I don't have any major traditons except for eating with my family somewhere.

    I think it's interesting how often I hear people go out to eat to celebrate birthdays, especially given that most people say food is more important in other cultures than it is in American culture. I think we do have a special place for food–we just don't usually think about it.

    Funny to look back on this post to see me celebrating the 50-page mark on TVB. It's come a long way since then!

    Same here. It's surprising how often people go out to eat and not having that many more traditions outside of it.

    I bet. You've really surpassed that!
