Wow! What a gift!

Yesterday, we celebrated my birthday with my family at my parent's house. My mom made a delicious birthday dinner: fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, homemade dinner rolls, green beans, and cherry cheesecake. Delish! And then- I got a gift that I have been wanting since I was 18...A RECORD PLAYER!!! I know that probably no one else but me would get excited about that, but I love it so much. (It also has a cd player and a tape player). We spent all day playing records today and it was so much fun. Evan was amazed that those "big CDs have music on BOTH sides!"

Happy 30th Birthday to ME!!!

It has been a very nice birthday for me today..low key and simple, but filled with good friends. Christi stopped by this morning with some VERY cute balloons (pink, purple, and very girly-just the way I like it!!) from the Koch family. I got three birthday cards from co-workers in the mail, lots of phone calls wishing me a happy day. I also got to get my hair done by the AWESOME Katie, where I got lots of blond highlights, and I whacked my hair off. We all agreed it looked like there was a pet on the floor when we were done from all the hair. My good friend Sarah was there when I got my hair done, and it was so nice to see her. I love old friends that you have had forever you can talk to anytime, and it's like you are 16 again (which is especially nice on your 30th birthday!) Sarah brought me some yummy rice krispie treats to enjoy. Tonight, Jeff and I are going out to a movie, and to eat at my favorite-RED LOBSTER!! Yum!!

Sad News

Last night while I was reading the paper at dinner, I saw an article that told of the death of an old friend I had the priviledge of teaching preschool with at Children's Corner, Marla Little. She was only 37 years old, and left behind two daughters and a husband. Marla was so kind and supportive to me when I was pregnant with Evan. The women at C.C. really provided me with love and support during a hard time in my life. I was so sad to hear of her death.

Up until that point I had been feeling pretty disgusted about turning 30 tomorrow. Hearing the sad news about Marla though was like a kick in the face. I am just glad now to have the time that I do with my family and kids, and every day here is a gift, no matter how old you are. I will happily celebrate my birthday tomorrow.

The Day From Hell

Everything possible has gone wrong today. Every little thing that could go wrong did. Including Sam spitting up litterally 17 times, over as much of the living room carpet as possible. Including Charlie being outside for only 10 minutes before managing to cover himself in dog poop from his hair to his ears to his toes. Including Jeff coming home from work and stating that he wants to put the house loan and hence the house in only his name due to my bad credit rating (which is the fault of a certain former significant other who took out credit cards in my name without my knowledge). I am also starting to feel sick. I am just going to go to bed and hope that life is better tomorrow.
