From the Weekend | Birthday Weekend

Monday, August 4, 2014

I always get so excited for my birthday, as if something phenomenal will happen and make it the best week of the year.  Yet, so often, I end up getting sick (which is weird because I never get sick) with a stomach bug that makes the day and week less than perfect.  Last week was no exception.  I had hopes that I would recover in time to face the fun weekend plans ahead- Friday night date with my friend Heidi, Saturday night dinner with my friend Kim, and a party on Sunday night to celebrate another friend's birthday.  Instead, I stayed home, napped a lot, and watched Silver Linings Playbook and Indie Game: The Movie (two of my favorites).  It wasn't a terrible weekend; a very small part of me enjoys being sick because it forces me to not over work myself and instead get a lot of rest.  But, on the other hand, I really wish my birthday could live up to my expectations for once.  Maybe next year.

Happy Monday!


  1. I am sorry to hear that you were sick on your birthday. You should have a birthday do over.

  2. Aw, what a bummer! It sounds like you made the best of it, though. Hopefully you can reschedule some of your fun plans for a time when you're feeling better.

  3. Arrghh! This is getting too bizarre! My birthday was two weeks ago and I was sick too and missed the few things I had planned!

    Next year is right :) Happy late birthday!!

  4. Happy belated birthday! Sorry that you were sick :(
