 So, I'm thirty.

!!!

Dude.

Frankly, I'm proud I made it this far.  There have been times both relatively recent and at the beginning of my life where it looked like I might not.  I'm feeling good.

I had a pretty laid-back birthday.  I took the day off of work, Todd took me out to lunch and then up to Skater's Edge to order new derby skates as my present.  I'm ridiculously excited because they will be custom-colored.  I had to go to practice in the evening because we're doing skill assessment for team placement, so I couldn't exactly skip it.  I'm having a birthday party on Friday.  Turning back the clock for an evening and having a Sweet Sixteen.  If you're reading this, you're welcome to come and YOU MUST COME DRESSED AS YOU WOULD HAVE IN HIGH SCHOOL.

The week before my birthday was kind of a mess.  Todd's dad was in the hospital (pneumonia plus assorted complications).  Things looked REALLY bad for a while, but he's being released today.  Highlight:  Todd and I drove down to WV to see him in the hospital as he was rapidly getting worse.  Scared out of my mind as Todd freaked out in the seat next to me, I got the Beetle up around 110mph a few times and made the trip in two hours.  We got there, stood around for maybe twenty minutes, and then the doctor told us that he would be Life Flighted to the Cleveland Clinic.  So . . . . turn around!  As happy as I am that he's better and will be going home, this does mean that I will have to give my in-laws' adorable Shih Tzu back to them.  I spent last week doing my best to help my husband keep it together and watch my mother-in-law be completely insane and use the situation as a way to get attention and pity for herself.  High (or low) points include being convinced that someone was going to break into her hotel room by cutting the bolts off the door and kill her, and telling me that since she was almost seventy, she couldn't wait around for Todd and me to have babies and WHEN EXACTLY WOULD WE BE HAVING THEM AS I OBVIOUSLY ONLY EXIST TO BE A FUCKING BROOD MARE AND PRODUCE GRANDBABIES FOR HER OMG I AM SERIOUSLY ABOUT TO GO OFF ON THIS WOMAN FJ329UGBVNQQ39UGJEKLWBMKRW'3P04950R-

Anyway.

Thirty.  I'm pretty jazzed about it.

Congratulations and happy birthday to you, my fellow Pisces! I wish I could make it out for the party but unfortunately I cannot.

I'll be thirty-one in three hours and fifteen minutes.

Sweet.
Wow.
We could be there. I almost remember where your house is, and I'm still wearing the same clothes I did in HS.
