Yesterday was my birthday.

It did not go as I had hoped. Dmitri, David, and I laid on the sofa all day, thanks to the flu. Damon has avoided it thus far, and so he happily cruised the sofa smiling at us. We had to cancel our birthday date, obviously.

So twenty-two passed without much hoorah...I guess I could have stuck a candle in my bowl of applesauce. And I did use it as an excuse to get a Netflix free trial, so that opened up a lot of entertainment options, while I laid on the couch.

I kind of think that I should get a re-do. A birthday renovation or makeover.
Which is what I said last year, too, since I was 35 weeks pregnant on my 21st birthday.

Any fun ideas?

Caroline, sorry you guys were sick! I'm especially sorry you were sick on your special day! It stinks to miss out on birthday fun. I feel like I missed my last birthday too! It was October 13, and Graham was due the 14th. My present from Aron was tickets to see David Sedaris at the Classic Center on the 31st, and then Graham didn't end up arriving until the 30th, so needless to say we didn't make it to Sedaris. You have some MAJOR catching up to do since you kind of missed your 21st birthday too. Not to complain, but I was pregnant when I should've been having a bachelorette party, and Aron had THREE bachelor parties, one of which spanned five days in California. Anyway, sorry to be self-centered; I just wanted to say that I can understand the feeling of missing out! Hope you come up with a great way to treat yourself to some fun! If I can come up with fun ideas, I will share them. Happy late birthday! I hope it's happier on the day you choose to celebrate! specialoffer said...
