Best Birthday Yet!

This year has been the best birthday I’ve had in a long time. I can’t really pinpoint the real reasons why, because there was nothing special about it. I think maybe I just had no expectations for it this year.I’ve always worried that I have unreasonable expectations and then I’m disappointed when they aren’t met.

As I mentioned in my last post, Mr. Cranky took me out to a new sushi restaurant that we’ve never been to before. And, he doesn’t really like sushi, so we usually never go. For my gift, he got me a new charm for my Pandora Bracelet, as well as a new cloth to clean it. He also got me a gift card to buy some new (sexy) underwear… I was complaining a few weeks ago that I have no “nice” underwear that fit me anymore… I also got a new chain for an old diamond pendant that has a broken chain. Overall, very happy (even though I really wanted and iPad mini, I knew I wasn’t really going to get one).

We spent the day as a family: we went shopping, had lunch together, I got to take a nap while the boys napped, we went exploring through a new community in the city (which I will post about later), and then we went to a local event where we had dinner, watched some live entertainment, and watched a man making balloon animals. We finished off the day with a relaxing massage for me, from Mr. Cranky. I couldn’t have asked for more, really.

I was genuinely excited about how the day went and I hope it is a sign of the changing times for me in this life. I had a stressful and frustrating week, but in the end, it didn’t seem to matter. Maybe it is a different perspective for me, I’m not sure. Regardless, I am happy that I didn’t go to bed last night feeling depressed that another year was gone and no one really cared.

  1. I spent all of yesterday wondering what I was wondering… now I remember – I didn’t check my blog or even wish you!
