Today was my special day, yup, it's my birthday. Can you believe that I'm 28? I definitely cannot, seems like yesterday I was turning 18! I was privileged enough to start classes again today as a birthday present, come on now who wouldn't want to do that?! So here's how the morning went: woke up 30 minutes late; had 2 kids to get ready to go; got the 5yr old to school on time (amazingly!); got the baby to his new sitter late; cried on the way to my school because I felt like a horrible mother for leaving the baby with someone we barely know; got to class and knew no one and of course no one knew me so I made no friends :( ; find out that my cpr expired so I have until next Tuesday to get it renewed; had to get a TB test; come home and grab baby (at least he came and hugged and kissed me!); grabbed the 5yr old; went to the closing for our old house only to find out the closing got delayed; dropped the 5yr old off with his dad; got treated to a lovely birthday dinner of drive-thru Wendys (please note the sarcasm); went back to the old house to finish hauling shit off to the dumpster; bickered with my husband cause it appears that the stress of moving is finally hitting us; put baby boy to bed; opened up a beer; husband went to bed; 5yr old came home; put him to bed; now it's just me, the laptop, beer, and the fireplace. Was that enough whining for everyone?
Here's what I want to know.... when did birthday parties go from this
parties and cakes....
feeling lonely and not even having a damn beach to look at! :(
It used to be that birthdays were a day that the world stopped and revolved around me, at least for that day. What happened to those times? Okay I know that it was probably when I was younger than 10 but hey a girl can look back right?
Oh well, another year older, another year wiser....
