Birfdays are cewl.........yo...........

Today's the big 3-3 for me. Of course, we all aren't where we expected to be at this point in our lives, but whatever.

I actually had a very lovely day. I met two friends from work at the butt-crack of dawn for breakfast and fun, then taught all day. The kids were so cute-one class made me a birthday card, a group of kindergarteners first graders sang a rousing off-key rendition of "Happy Birthday", and generally everyone was very nice to me, which is a definite breath of fresh air from the crap school, where nobody even acknowledged me last year on my birthday.

Sean got me the first season of The Muppet Show on DVD (he ROCKS) and some quirky cow stuff, lots of cards and cool stuff. Special smooches to Cat and Shelli-you guys are awesome!

And, I even got an acupuncture appt today-there was a cancellation-how good is that? I'll have to write more about what's going on with my acu later on-it's pretty interesting.

All in all, a great day. Of course, I still didn't get that one special gift that would have made my birthday complete, but, looking back on my birthday post from last year, I feel like I'm in a much better place than I was. I know the drill........I'm a hardened veteran in this infertility war, and I'm determined to win.

And, I don't mind late birthday gifts..........better late than never, right? Especially the gift of life-getting that gift makes it the best birthday of all time, no matter what day it really is.

Via Cat, who might hurt me if I didn't so - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I've been reading you since before the rather cool design so I might as well delurk. I hope you receive the birthday present you so badly want.
