Another Year Another Day

That pretty much sums up today, my 31st birthday. You know as you get older you expect your birthdays to just come and go as any other day would or maybe that's just what I have always thought. I haven't had a decent birthday celebration since I was a kid and honestly I can't remember any fun times. My 16th and 18th birthdays (the milestones ya know) sucked and my 21st birthday I was in Germany. The only thing I did was legally go out (but was already legal in Germany) and have a drink.

What is it that we expect as we turn a year older when we are adults? Do you we expect our family and friends to remember? Do we expect an unexpected gift or surprise of going out and celebrating? Perhaps but maybe it would just be nice to be remembered and get an email or a phone call from a good friend to just say Happy Birthday. I got 4 phone calls today from family and that does not include my so called husband or any friends.

It's been a pretty crappy day, fighting with the kids all day and nothing remotely exciting happening. Oh well again just another day and another year come and gone.

Slacker Blogger

WOW I have not written a single entry since New Years??? Where has the time gone? I can't even begin to explain where it has gone or what I have been doing, oh yes I can lol. My bright idea for the 1st part of the year was to become involved in a charity event with my moms group. We usually do one a couple times through out the year and I decided that this time would be Relay For Life. Relay For Life is an important fundraiser for the American Cancer Society to help fund the search for a cure for cancer. This is very dear to me as I have lost several family members to cancer and have a good friend who is a survivor.

That was in January when I decided to become involved and the event was this past weekend May 2-3rd which is why I have been MIA and slacking. My team goal was $3000 and I am happy to say we made and surpassed out goal prior to the Relay so my new goal by the end of Relay was $5000. Right now it looks like we made it! I just have to turn in the final amount of money and wait for the goal charts to be updated.

So between that and shuttling between hearing aid appointments and trying various ones I am settled with a set of upgraded BTE's and happy with them. Other than that, Hailey turned 3 in March and we had a small party for her. It was nice and she got to play with her friends . Jessica is doing great in school still and only has about 14 days of school left if I remember correctly.

In March we decided to see about a home loan so we could move and we were approved and now the process is ongoing for home improvement projects to get it ready to sell. We are down to the wire and have to have them done by May 20th! So much left to do and I don't even want to think about it right now.

Other big news, our Hawaiian Vacation later this month! WHHOOOHOOOOO so looking forward to that and sharing pictures when we get back. We have a wonderful 2 weeks coming up, and thankfully my mom paid for our tickets!

Well just a quick update, will write more tomorrow if I have time! Hopefully after vacation I'll get back to writing once a day or so.
