I think birthdays are extra special for those of us who count our blessings each day, as I do. Hardly a day goes by when I do not stop and thank the universe for my friends and family, my T, my lovely pets, my health. That last one can be a bit of a challenge sometimes. But no matter how bad I feel, I can always think of a cystic who was in a worse situation...and for that, I am truly thankful.
Friday night was my celebration with friends. We had a bowling party. It was so much fun drinking Blue Moon while listing to all kinds of upbeat retro songs. Everything was laid back and relaxed, and what a good group of folks...so much positive energy!
So what did I do today? I started the morning with a cupcake and a cup of coffee. I then spent 2.5 frustrating hours at the ENT (I would have scheduled it for another day, but I also had a hearing test done and I have been anxious to do that asap. And as it turns out, I continue to have sinus issues even after my IV antibiotics, so it was a good idea.) I got to work in time to be taken out by my lovely coworkers for Mexican deliciousness...it was fun.
After work, I took a much needed nap then woke up and opened my remaining presents. Todd got me the warmest slippers ever!! The rest of my friends and family were also incredibly generous. The cap of the day was an amazing dinner out at a fancy local restaurant with my mom and Todd where we had an incredible meal and left very full and happy. My mom was so sweet and got me flowers, massage gift certificates and a couple of other things. I was feelin' the love from everyone. :)
It really was what anyone wants on their birthday...a celebration of me. And now, another year starts. Bring it!
