it's my party and I'll cry if I want to!

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....

to this

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....

Last year my birthday dinner was at A&W so you're not alone on the fast-food b-day dinner thing. Your day sounds rough that's for sure. The good thing about adult birthdays is that you can celebrate them whenever you want to. It doesn't have to be the exact day. You'll still be a newly minted 28-year-old tomorrow or the next. Celebrate then when the day is quieter. Hey maybe you can eat inside the Wendy's to really go all out. ;)

Birthdays do seem to get a little less important as the years go by....but I don't think they are. You should be celebrated on your special day!! So Happy Birthday my friend :) I hope the rest of your week improves!

Birthdays should be special - all the chaos of life - moving, kids, school, work should disappear on your birthday or at least this weekend to celebrate! Birthday hugs from me :) And wishes that your Birthday Week turns into a fabulous memory of the year you turned 28!!

I say you take a mulligan and pick a day to celebrate your birthday! Maybe after the house stuff calms down, or this weekend but we all need a day to celebrate ourselves! Happy belated birthday!

I am with SLJ!!! That birthday wont do at all!!! I say you need to call a day and tell your hubby that you want a proper dinner and movie (or something). It is your special day!! Happy Birthday anyways!!
