4 Ways to not spend your birthday...
Spending 2 hours of your morning, hugging the toilet, dry heaving because this precious little baby inside you decided cinnamon rolls was not the way it wanted it's day started.
Just as you are finally recovering from the week long flu (that both me and Claire had), you look in the mirror to see two huge red saucers for eyes that look like something from the Rocky Horror Picture show. Yes, I have pink eye.
Having to cancel the big Mexican fiesta that your family had planned for you tonight that included a FABULOUS cake from Ricks that you have been craving since they asked what you wanted.
Listening to the siding falling off the back of your house because the worst ice storm EVER to hit NWA is now melting and taking down the siding from your trim with it.
6 Ways to spend your birthday...
Sitting in comfy clothes, no make up, with two of your favorite people in the world in your lap, staring at you with barely there pink in their eyes, thrilled to death that it is your birthday and their only concern in the world is this cake that has been promised =)
Sitting in a clean house (with electricity) because the best Mom in the world cleaned it up for me!
This from my sis Tara (and the FABULOUS bag and shirt with matching ear rings she just dropped off for my present ).
Receiving more texts in one day than ever from all my best friends in family checking in on me and making sure we were okay (Thanks Nicole, Jess, and Lane)!
Having an awesome OBGYN and Pediatrician that called in meds immediately when I told them our situation.
Having a husband that has listened to his insanely emotional wife cry and be sympathetic when she is crying because her birthday was ruined (lame, I know, cut me some slack, I am a basket case right now) and still is planning a big day for me tomorrow that includes a nice dinner out and some birthday presents!
I think the good out ways the bad...I feel better now! WOO HOO - the big 2-8! Sorry, no pictures, I will spare you them right now!
Hopefully will be back on the blog train next week...
