How are you all?
Yesterday was my birthday. It was the first annual celebration of my 29th year. I had a big blog post planned for the event but Monday I came down with a nasty sinus infection. Nasty, I tell you. The only other time I was sick on my birthday, it was when I turned 7 and I had chicken pox. And I assure you it was just as sucky this time as it was then. Thankfully, I got mucinexed up and am feeling much better now.
So I got sick Monday. You know what else happened Monday? I spent 10.5 hours in the car with my kids. Don't be jealous. My dad drove us to a meeting point halfway between my parents house and our house where we met Colin. The first half of the drive was fine...no traffic...no impending death from inflamed sinuses. The second half (after we met Colin) was filled with much weeping, waling and gnashing of teeth. Traffic was insane. (Seriously, leave it to the Oklahoma Highway Commission to do road work on Memorial Day) I could not keep my eyes open because of my sinuses. Thankfully, THANKFULLY, the kids acted pretty great. It was me that acted like a four year old. So a trip that should take about 8 hours took 10 and a half. True story: At one point, we were about 90 miles away from our house and we were driving by a motel (at 2 mph) and we were having a serious discussion about pulling over and staying there for the night because Colin and I had both had it. How desperate are you if you are talking about staying in a hotel a mere 90 miles from your house?
So anyway, that's my grumbling and complaining for the day. My memorial day was full of traffic and I was sick on my birthday.
But I must say that facebook and texting are pretty awesome on birthdays. I really felt the love. And I had some awesome chocolate cake and Colin took me to one of my new favorite restaurants...without our children. What more can I ask for?
