Someone call the Fire Department


You could say we had a series of un/fortunate events.

This week I got pink eye and gave it to GJ (Hence the glasses). Fortunately, no one else in the house got it and it is now cleared up.

Yesterday at 1:16am, I turned 29. Fortunately, I was asleep at that time and Tad got up with the kids so I got to sleep in (c'mon, like 8am.) Being almost 30 is not so bad (that is what I tell myself)

Tad had to go treat cells at school all morning. Unfortunately, when I tried to take the boys grocery shopping, a random dog attached SM on our way down the driveway and even after several hard kicks, it wouldn't stop (picture me holding a 25lb baby and trying to save my poor son from this excited dog nipping and licking him which he is alergic to). He was not really teeth bared biting, but it was still traumatic for us all. We finally made it back to the house and several hives and Benadryl later, I was too worked up to venture out again.

Since I slept in, I was still able to do our big run on. I was fine with doing 6 miles, but fortunatly, my wonderful running partner is so good for me and decided we need to do two more. The competitive girl I am, if she can do it, I can! (though I run much slower!) I made her tell me a story and pester her with questions the whole time so fortunately, the last two miles went really fast (though I definitely feel it! That is the longest I have ever run, now we are over half way to the half marathon!)

We went to Five Guys, my favorite hamburgers for dinner (I know not fancy at all, but I was happy) and then played Settlers. Fortunately, we won! Unfortunately, we were up till midnight doing so and I am so tired! We were over 30 minutes late to church, but it all worked out!

Um, Happy Belated Birthday!!!! I was just at your house for like 2 hours and this didn't even come up. Where was the extra birthday cake???

The dog incident must have been scary! I would have been upset too.

Happy Birthday!!! I laughed out loud when reading about the dog incident! Did you really kick it?! You will have to post the story about the dog that stopped you from running the summer after freshmen year! Didn't someone escort you home?!

Happy Birthday! Doesn't feel too awful different being 29, does it? I tell myself that all the time! Next year might be a little different, though!

Happy Birthday little one. Be glad you are still in your 20's. I'm doing the big 3-0 this year. Ridiculous. Sorry to hear about your crazy adventures with dogs and all. You understand now why I hate them. I have to thank you for at least helping me to curb that a little bit via Argentina and "I love dogs" day. You are my hero para siempre jamas.

Happy Belated B-day! Good job on the running. I'm impressed. Keep it up.

Happy Belated Birthday Sweets! On the night of the 23rd I remembered, but whenever I was at a computer I kept forgetting to send you an e-card. I'm glad you had some good moments that day too.
