Birthday 10,000+ miles away from Family!
Wednesday, June 20, 2012
Today is my birthday...well it isn't REALLY my birthday for a couple more hours American time..(I am used to having my birthday be the first day of summer and the longest day of the year, now it is the shortest and it's winter..and a very WET day)~Yeah I am feeling a little blue today :(
It is the first time in 47 years that I haven't been around some member of my family..kind of weird.
But it was my choice to be here, and I have to deal with it.
My honey has been very good to me and has been wishing me Happy Birthday since midnight!
I think I was hit hardest when I got a card in the mail from my 9 year old Great Niece, we spent A LOT of time together when I was in the States from March-May, she told me I was the Best Aunt in the world, I am just so funny and she loves me. My sister sent me a card as well, in it was a little note my GN had written to me to give me when I left, but then she was embarrassed (she is a little shy)..she wrote "Australia~ has lots of kangaroos and kawalas and sea lions, Australia is pretty I can't waite to visite it someday I will miss you so much you are the best." at the bottom she wrote "tutti-frutti!yumm"
(Tutti frutti is a frozen yogurt place where you pick your own flavors and toppings and pay by weight, I kept telling her she needed to take me before I left, we didn't make it, but it was a running joke with us, I'd say it to her in a silly voice and make her laugh)
Anyway..I broke down when I read those..I don't want her to forget me..or her little 3 year old sister. Again, it is the choice I made..but it still hurts.
Well I have to go..didn't workout this morning as planned :( having lunch with my sweethearts mum and dad and aunt and uncle (alone!!) Hopefully will get a workout in somewhere today, just wasn't feeling it this morning...plus I was playing on youtube picking out workout songs and got carried away!!!!
Have a good day, or night wherever you are in the world when you read this!!
