Yay! I got a Cricut, I got a Cricut, la, la, la, la, la; I got a Cricut, I got a Cricut, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo. My husband bought me a Personal Cricut machine for my birthday. I'm sooooo happy! He got it brand new for $80.00 at Michael's, which I discovered was a steal because the thing normally costs $150-200.
Anyway, other than getting a Cricut and opening my presents and cards from my kids and hubby, I had a crappy birthday. I came home from work with an upset stomach yesterday morning. Thinking I just needed to eat, I had some toast and some orange juice. Bad idea. It all came back up. Everything I tried to nibble on or drink came back up, even the Pepto-Bismal, which, honestly, wasn't so bad coming up. I pretty much laid on the couch the entire day burning up with a fever, barfing, and feeling miserable. Kylie, seeing how miserable I was, asked if she could say a prayer for me. It was so sweet. I cried (half because I felt like crap and the other because I saw a glimpse of my little girl's sweet spirit). Kylie was very helpful, entertaining her brother and keeping him out of trouble, and getting me drinks from the fridge.
So this is what turning 30 is all about, then, huh? Getting older...getting sicker. What a cruel April Fool's joke.
I just went out and got my mail and I got a wonderful birthday card from my girlfriends from high school. It was so stinkin' cute. They all wrote messages to me, highlighting some of the memories they have about me. They brought up things I had totally forgotten about, like the time I forgot my bloomers and we were at an "away" game, so it wasn't like I could run home and get them or have my Mom bring them to me! I remember going out there with my blue-green underwear on, which sort of matched the blue bloomers we were supposed to be wearing. Some memories are best left forgotten! J/K. I am so grateful that I grew up in Salina and had such a great group of friends. Thanks to my girlfriend, Dawn, who has a knack for putting together creative projects like this. She is awesome!!!
