Happy Birthday Me!

Well, actually, yesterday was my birthday, but I wanted to wait until the end of the day to post, just in case something special happened; silly me, lol. It's the mom's job to make her kids' days special, but who is around to make her day special? No one. Oh well. The kids did make me nice birthday cards, which they woke me up at 7 am to give to me, because they were so excited about them. This was after Levi was up from 1:30 to 5 am, and was on his way to sleeping until 9 am. I missed out on the last 2 hours, lol. I ended up not posting after all last night, because I was so tired I couldn't keep my eyes open to write.

I decided to skip school yesterday; I just wasn't up to fighting about it, so we took a holiday. Chris says he emailed me to say Happy Birthday, but I didn't get any, so I guess it got lost in cyberspace. He did get me a card and a bag of M&Ms, but I didn't know about them until he came home from work. I talked to my sister, A, whose birthday it was also :-), and we talked about nothing for probably over an hour. That's always fun! I decided to ask Chris when he got home if I could go out with the baby and just drive through at McDs and eat in the car, to have a little quiet time to myself. He wasn't thrilled at the idea, as he wanted to mow the lawn, but I (maybe not so gently) told him that I didn't consider mowing the lawn to be a good birthday present, LOL. He let me go ;-). The weather was really nice, so I enjoyed it a lot. It was just what I needed.

Once again last night, Levi was up a few hours in the middle of the night, so I didn't get enough sleep. Ugh, it's starting to take its toll on me. I'm thinking of skipping school again today. Well, that's why we started so early, way back at the end of July; I figured I'd be missing a few days here and there after the baby was born. I was right ;-)

I know how you feel about your birthday. I see to it, that the childrens birthdays are real special, but when it comes to mine, it is just another day.
Hope you had a nice day!
