Well, I survived this birthday. One of the hardest I've had. My mom is in the hospital recovering from spinal stenosis surgery. She's doing ok, but they're worried about her heartbeat. I can't be there due to work and this lovely winter weather we've been having. I've talked to her on the phone every day and she sounds good. I even opened my birthday presents while on the phone with her.
I am now older than my brother. That is the strangest thing. He was 2 1/2 years older than me and I am officially older than he was when he died.
Two of the girls I work with sent me flowers. That was the sweetest thing and really helped me get through the day with a smile. That and my two year old's. I made them a birthday treat - rice krispie treats and finger jello - and as soon as I passed it out one of the girls sang Happy Birthday to me.
Working hard to find my motivation again. I'm really letting stress get to me and know I need to take care of that.
