Thirty-six {OMG that's closer to 40 than 30}

Here's how my 36th birthday was celebrated...

I started off the day eating cold pizza {my fave breakfast} in front of the laptop. I loved reading all the birthday wishes on my blog, scrapbook message board, and facebook! I felt REALLY popular.

At 11:30AM I had to go pick Cutie up at preschool. We went to Dr. Hubby's office and while talking to him I almost burst into tears. I'm not sure why!? Then we went to the library to pick up some books...I had to wait outside a minute to compose myself...I was in tears again. Weird?!
Next stop was the grocery store. Cutie became impatient waiting for me to let the tears "pass" in the truck. Before going home we stopped and picked up chinese for lunch and dinner.

All afternoon my emotions were in hyperdrive and I went from one mood to another. It was bizarre. I felt extreme excitement and anxiety all at the same time. I was SO hyper! Finally by evening it settled down. My MIL came and got the 3 girls to spend time with at her home. I took a shower.

Dr. Hubby came home. He said my emotional issues were probably from the accident. He said I have been freakishly cool with the whole thing and it was just "catching up with me." He said we were going to go down and visit his dad {who is on the mend from chronic pneumonia}. Turns out I walked in on this...

I was so surprised! I am usually the one in the family that does this for everyone else! I am so glad my relationship with my inlaws has been mended. I felt loved. My MIL is blond so my candles were 35 + 1...the 1 was a customized 4...she cracks me up!

The day ended with one of the BEST family photos we have EVER had taken! Now if only I hadn't been in my pjs with wet hair...lol. It's gonna be a good year!

Happy belated Birthday Scrappy, hope you had a great one. I have been swaped and exhausted from Thansgiving company and holiday that I haven't been on the computer much but I wanted to tell you Happy Birthday anyway. What a sweet thing that party was. Your hubby sounds so smart and sensitive to recognize your moods and why. Lucky there girl! Mine is ......well, he could use a few lessons or maybe a few good books to read about it. There we'll leave it at that. lol.
