Crappy Birthday To Me!!

Wednesday, August 03, 2011

Yesterday was my birthday! Was hoping to actually get to do a little something for me, but that didn't exactly happen. It turned out to be just another day in the world of me, mixed with a little bit of extra crazy.

I apologize in advance for the rant that follows this sentence, guess I just need to vent a little:

Had to get up at 4am to take my man to work (he had to be there at 5), so that I could have a car for the day. Then headed back home to shower, get dressed, and pack a bag for the kids. Back out the door at 6:45am to get kids to a sitter (30 minutes from my house), then to my yearly work orientation meeting (A friend I work with did remember me and bring me cupcakes, which I had one of as my snack for the day without the frosting). (I work in a school so we have been out of work for a couple months for the summer). Following the meeting I had to wait around for about an hour so I could interview for a possible full time position. Following the interview I had to pick up my 3 kids from the sitter, to find the sitter lost Tatum's Binky. Then had to pick up the 2 kids I am babysitting for the summer at a friends house. Next it was back home for about an hour, before we all had to leave again to pick Jimmy up from work.

After all of this running around, I got to come home, make dinner for the family, go to the store to buy another Binky (because they have all disappeared around the house), get home with the new Binky to find that my 1-year-old will not take this one :( So the night was spent searching for another Binky around the house, which we never found, a couple innings of the cardinals game, and then bedtime....

I guess once you hit a certain age, birthdays lose their flare :( Although I did have a mass amount of birthday wishes posted on my facebook wall. Oh well better luck next year!

    I know it's a rant page, but I couldn't help but notice all of the good things that happened to you on your birthday. You woke up ... that's a great start to any day. You have a husband who has a job. Love and connectedness and income. Excellent combination. You have children. What a legacy. You have a job (you are better off than 9.1% of the population) and friends who remember your birthday with baked goods. You are blessed. And you got the summer off? I am envious.

    Maybe the loss of the binky and not being able to find another one is a sign that the binky is on the way out.

    Depending on how you look at it, your birthday was pretty awesome. Happy Birthday!
