It’s My Party…

Good morning, er afternoon?

Friends, it has been one heck of a day. To back up, it’s my birthday (hooray, I think). But, everything has gone awry starting with my computer dying along with our dryer. I am coming at you from my phone today.

The plan for the big birthday was breakfast prepared by my boys, a trip to the gym and a long, quiet shower (all of these things have become luxuries and were on my birthday wish list. Sad but true). Unfortunately, I woke to a dead computer and appliance. Phil also remembered that my license plate tabs need to be renewed. Everything in threes, right?

So, the morning has consisted of feeding Mitchell, being puked on (more than once), calls to repair folks and no breakfast, shower or gym. Isn’t that the way.

My texts are blowing up along with my voicemail, so thank you to everyone. I’m sorry I can’t talk or respond, we are in semi crisis mode (anyone who has lost a computer can relate).

We will see what the rest of the day will bring. The plans are a date night with Phil but there’s a lot to get squared away and the rest of the weekend is full to the brim.

I guess this is what birthdays look like as an adult. Life didn’t get the memo that it’s all about me today. Well damn.

Thank goodness for my early gift. His smile is the best part of my day, everyday.

So I’m off to do some computer shopping. Any suggestions? I’ll leave the dryer to Phil. ;)

8 Things to be Grateful for Right Now

Good morning, friends. Can you believe we are halfway through the month? Thanksgiving is right around the corner, red cups are flowing at Starbucks and Christmas decor is taking over every store in America. Holy holidays!

Fall is waning here in the midwest. The leaves have almost all fallen from the trees, the pretty mums are browning thanks to overnight frosts, and the temperature drops a little every day.

I Fall for You
