I got up this morning and the kids gave me their gifts. They had picked out a few things from the dollar store for me. Then got the kids off to school and went to the gym. I came home and got dressed, and Clint took me to eat at Copeland's for my birthday lunch. So good! I was getting ready to head to the mall to do a little shopping for me, when Veronica's school called. She has been having tummy troubles and she had a bad, bad accident during nap time. It was in her sleep and she didn't even wake up. Instead of the mall, I picked her up from school. I felt so sad for her. She was so embarrassed and also today would have been her first day of tumble bunnies and she wasn't able to go. No worries though, she seemed fine at home. Not sure what is going on with her tummy issues.
Once Val was home we snapped some pictures and cut the cake. It was pretty darn good if I do say so myself! Then I got Veronica ready and took her to dancing.
Every year for the past 10 years, I have gotten flowers for my birthday. This year - none. And it is a little hard to not notice. It's not really that I expect it, but I do look forward to it. So I mentioned it tonight - that I hadn't gotten any flowers this year. Clint forgot. Because of work. His wonderful job that has him totally oblivious to anything or anyone else.
Work wins again. And he laughed when I said that.
I don't find it funny at all. It's just another twist of the knife in my heart.
