Happy Birthday to Me!

Firecracker had to have blood drawn today to test her med levels. Bless my husband for taking her, because I don’t think I could cope with little Firecracker and needles. I had to trot downtown for a meeting, and since I don’t like city driving, I was pretty annoyed. But someone bought me a birthday brownie, which went a long way to improve matters. Then I found that Dear Husband had let Firecracker leave me a happy birthday message on my cell phone. This was so adorable that I’m tempted to make everyone around me listen to it.

My MIL is coming in to visit. She’ll watch the girls while Dear Husband and I have a night to ourselves in a B&B this weekend. The girls are looking forward to seeing Nana, who will spoil them, tell them how incredibly smart they are, oo and ah over all their artwork, and let them watch too much TV. What could be better?

  1. Happy Birthday you old lady. I can't wait to spend time with you on Saturday. How long has it been since we have seen each other or had time alone with NO KIDS.

  2. Happy birthday, Bad Alice! For what it's worth, the 40's have been the best decade yet and I hope you find that to be your experience as well. Birthday prayers for health and blessings for your family and a WONDERFUL time away with your hubby!

  6. Happy Birthday! Enjoy the B&B and a well deserved break.

    As for Nana, that's the best part of having one -- too much sugar, too many games, and too little sleep.

  7. Wow, Happy Birthday there girl. I hope you had an awesome weekend with your hubby.

    I'm so sorry to hear about lil' Firecracker. Are things still improving there? What an awful thing to have to go through...(for her and her fam). I will definately remember her in my prayers, as well as all of you.
    Blessings.

  8. Happy Birthday -sorry it's a day late. Blessings on your night away, I think you do deserve it and I hope you have lots of fun and lots of laughter too

    Poor firecracker. I do hope she starts to do better soon -since Jeff's wanting to get into nursing, I think it's only appropriate that he does the blood work visit to the hospital (grin)

  12. Happy belated... you should be kicking back somewhere right now, enjoying your time away. I'm praying that you can allow your head and heart to leave Firecracker in your MIL's care (I mean, really), and that you both have a well deserved rest and break.

  16. I've been away too long.

    I'm glad to catch up with your posts.

    Jeremiah has had seizures all his life also. We once did a sleep deprivation test on him and he had over 20 seizures in a half hour.

    Happy belated B Day.
