Another One Bites the Dust

My birthday, in list:
  • I set my alarm to wake up early - very painful for night-person me
  • I soon realized that I had started my period, and not painlessly
  • I went to the dentist
  • As always, it sucked
  • I learned that I have a cavity that needs to be filled
  • I got to go to Bible study, but had to leave very early
  • I had to take Ellie to the doctor for the third time in a week
  • I hit a pole in (tiny, unlit, under-building) parking lot as I tried to leave (my first time ever hitting anything with a car)
  • Ellie was tired and irritable all afternoon
  • I have a headache
  • I had a great time at dinner with 10 girlfriends, none of whom remembered that it is my birthday (and I didn't remind them)
  • I got pulled over in a stupid speedtrap on the way home
It all could have been a lot worse. Ellie isn't really sick. The car was barely scratched in its encounter with the cement pillar. I just got a warning from the cop. There are clean sheets on the bed.

Good night.

Oh MAN, Sarahlynn. That birthday sucked. I'm sorry. :( May the rest of your year be much, much better. Happy belated!

I got pulled over on my 30th birthday. Does that help? And for my birthday this year my husband got me 2/$6 frames from Walgreens and wrapped them up in the Walgreens bag sealed with masking tape. Does that make you feel better??

Happy happy birthday, Sarahlynn. You are magnificent.

Thanks, Amazon and RhE.

Today was much better. My teamates had a delicious cake for me at work, and nothing bad happened. Plus, I love to make people laugh, and they love the story of my 31st birthday. I don't even have to exaggerate.

Happy belated Birthday! Sorry your day wasn't better, but you are right it makes for a great story! At least there were clean sheets at the end of the day.

Hope the rest of your year is better!

Wow, Sarahlynn...in our e-mail correspondence, I had no idea it was THAT many mishaps! At least there were those clean sheets to look forward to - that fixes almost anything for me.

Oy! Happy belated birthday, Danger Woman!

Oy, indeed! You sound like an episode of Lucy.

Happy belated, Sarah! I was getting concerned about the lack of cake-mention, but I see now that was resolved. Whew. Cake makes everything better, at least in Edit Barn World.
