Just Another Day

Yesterday was like any other day. Hotter than ever living hell here in Arizona, kids screaming and babbling since finding their voices, barking orders about what they want for breakfast, me drinking my coffee, enjoying my zen moment with my milky dark friend.


Yesterday was like any other day. I fought to take a shower because the kids felt the need to scream and carry on that I was locking them outside of a door they did not need to be behind (because this is what happens when they get behind said door)

and they (the Squids) also decided that the recycling bin is a great box that carries cool sounding toys and they unloaded that along my kitchen floor.

Yesterday was like any other day. My delusional father psycho dialed me (definition: called more than once in a single day or within a few short hours with no reason other than his own) all day to which I ignored his calls as usual.

However, while yesterday was like any other adult day I did have breakfast and lunch made for me on behalf of DH (which I totally enjoyed!!), I got a box of chocolates, cupcakes from my sister (who doesn’t stinking love cupcakes??!!), a great E-card from a dear friend, and some cool balloons.

While I really wanted a damn parade and clowns (even though they are WAY creepy), getting older is not as fun as it used to be as a kid. But I really enjoyed taking a day all to myself to do what I wanted (for the most part) and spend time with the ones I love.

No expensive gifts, no party hats, no huge cakes, no strippers…damn….just a fantastic day to celebrate my age, since I really do like my age….so glad to not be in the “kid” category anymore. Plus one of the best and most heartwarming cards from my best friend who professed his love and wealth of love to me as he always does. And I got three smiling little faces who had no idea what the day was (with the exception of Big G) but were happy to share in the experience of losing their little minds slapping balloons and eating cupcakes.

Life is about the little things.

How did you or how will you celebrate your birthday this year!?

  1. Happy belated birthday Karie! I did not have a terrific start to my birthday this year, the hubby and I were going at it like cats and dogs (high stress levels) but it ended on a great note when my parents and brother came down to take us to dinner. Plus, I got a nice little bbq/party with the in-laws the weekend prior to my big day!

    Glad you enjoyed yours and were properly pampered!

  2. Happy B-day! It is the little things in life that make this worth the ride. My b-day is in February and in the north-east, it's usually snowing! I can remember so many times I either had Broadway tickets or dinner plans and they usually fall through on account of the weather…I end up spending the day with hubby and the kids. 🙂

  3. Happy Birthday!!! We don't do much to celebrate. It was the big 4-0 for me. My friend at work decorated my office cube. Very nice and unexpected. Always get a cake. Yummy!!!

    Go get a pedicure for fun 🙂

  4. Happy belated, Karie. Remember that for your big day, you are allowed to celebrate the whole week through.

    I hope lots and lots of little celebrations are headed your way. Like you said, in the end, that is really what it is about.


  5. Happy belated birthday! Sounds like you had a good one 🙂 This year for my bday, my husband and I celebrated at our favorite restaraunt and ended up talking about how much has changed and what we are looking forward too. (We're expecting our first in a couple of weeks!!) How things change! 🙂

  6. Happy belated birthday! I'd choose cupcakes over presents any day! Just don't tell my husband, cause both is nice too!
    Stopping by from SITS.

  7. Happy Birthday!! My birthday was pretty boring this year! I don't even remember what I did. Is that bad? LOL
