35

Wow...I'm old. Today was my birthday. I woke up to breakfast in bed(a little earlier then I had hoped), German pancakes, butter syrup and a smoothie made by Ollie. Max made me a cartoon on his DSi and Ollie gave me a massage, that lasted about 2 minutes but hey it's the thought right? Scott gave me the best gift of all...the gift of freedom. He gave me some cash and said, beat it. So I drove straight to sprinkles and got a vanilla and then walked around fashion island. It was awesome. I also didn't do one feed, one med or anything to do with handling Davy. Ahhhh so nice. He is such a good guy huh? Then I come home and have a bazillion(40) messages from facebook homeys. I felt the love today furreal yo.
35....35...... a year ago today I was sick really sick with my pregnancy. It's weird to think about all that has happened this last year. Am I allowed to say that my 34th year of life sucked. I mean there were some definite bright spots, like miss Davy Jean. But all in all it was my hardest year ever. Even harder then my 16th year, when my brother told me that everyone at school thinks I'm a lesbian and wants me to go the parties as the token lesbo. I think 35 is going to be the year I lose my mind, I'll be crazy aunt Ruthy. Everyone will speak in hushed tones around the crazed old hag. I'm going to wear funky moo moos and bandannas. I'm gonna start drinking ginger ale.
Whoa, I've got to stop typing. Scott gave a sleeping pill and I'm pretty wonky. I really should not be held responsible for this post. abort abort!!

Well happy birthday! I feel silly that I saw you last night and I didn't even know that it was your special day. Sorry. And sorry that I didn't get a chance to talk to y'all more yesterday- I should have caught up with you for a little bit since I rarely get to see you in person. Please forgive me.
Again, happy belated birthday.

Happy Birthday! I will be 35 this year as well. And, I was just thinking how old that made me feel. But, what are we gonna do? :) Just wanted to say that I completely relate to your comment about having a year that sucked. While my story is not at all like yours - I had a bad pregnancy and a preemie and now she has this stupid, stupid hemangioma that she has to deal with. Anyway...my point... Yay for being us. For having our lives...because we are just right where we are supposed to be!

I just posted this as a reply to you on my blog but to ensure you see it, I thought I'd post it here as well.

Ruth, just so you know, I read every post you have. I feel like I really know you. I don't comment often because I don't often have anything to say. But I do read. All the time. And pray for you guys often. Just so you know.

Ruth-

I never do this.. but I think I should. I stumbled upon your blog and have to tell you...thank you! So many of your posts have inspired me and uplifted me. And sometimes when I'm cooking dinner for my little fam of four...I think of you and hope all you and your fam are doing well...especially you're amazing little Davy. My Emma, who is 5...thinks she is beautiful.

Take care!

Happy belated birthday Ruth. You're one crazy lady I'd love to hang out with...in a moomoo and bandana at fashion island eating sprinkles. p.s. I was there last week too - shoot!
