The Birthday Bucket!

March 2, 2008 at 6:26 pm 12 comments

Today is my birthday.  I am 33 years old! 

I was in Michigan this weekend with Polly visiting my family.  My grandma has been ill and I wanted to get some time with her.  The plan was for S to come to Michigan with Elaina and Zoya today after church.

But Zoya got sick, so I woke up this morning from a phone call from S and a plea to get back to Chicago.  We left straight away and now I am sitting next to Zoya on the couch watching Cinderella.  A bucket sits between us, in case her middle of the night antics continue today.

I did just eat a huge piece of cheese cake…Happy Birthday to me…

    Happy Birthday to you! I hope you have a great day, even as you sit on the couch with your daughter and her bucket. 🙂

    Oh No! Happy birthday! Hope Zoya gets better soon, so that you all can enjoy a different kind of bucket together! Maybe a cake, with a big BUCKET of ice cream?? 🙂

    Happy birthday!

    Sorry, your day sucked. I thought a vomit bowl would be a nice touch but maybe next year I will go with jewelry. Anyway, I am happy you were born. Thrilled, actually.

    Happy Birthday (belated I know) Man I really miss you guys! I hope everything is going good over there, besides the pukes. Hope you don’t get that bug as a belated B-day gift!
    Love Heidi

    HAPPY HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!! It really is a hard choice ‘vomit bowl’ or ‘jewelry’, definitely not the status quo. This will not be a easily forgotten birthday and could be on the most memorable side of the page.

    keep on being YOU!!! love, hugs and we will keep on celebrating you when we’ll see each other again. 33 is a great age, so is 30 :):)
