|April 17, 2011 – I am 29 now.
Today was my birthday. I didn’t have a lot of grandiose plans, really. Usually I make a whole spectacle of my birthday, but today’s plans were simple: brunch with Michael, his mom and Foley (his best friend and sort of now my best guy-friend).
This birthday started out a little difficult for me. I ended up waking up early because of Mike’s snoring. I was tired. I couldn’t go online because the internet was down for no real reason. I was pre-upset last night because there was something I was really hoping would arrive in the mail before my birthday, and it hadn’t arrived. This morning, I just ended up very bummed out about that, about getting older, just feeling “off” in general, so after my shower I just went in the bedroom and wanted to cry for a while. I couldn’t even place a name on “what’s wrong” when Mike came in and tried to see what was going on. It was a lot of things I couldn’t put my finger on, so I know how silly it must have sounded to say “I’m tired and the internet’s not working.”
Brunch was faaaaaaabulous. It was a beautiful day out and I had two mimosas in me, a cup of coffee and all kinds of delicious brunchables. I had a nice time with three of my favorite people in the whole world.

After brunch, I was feeling a little “off” again, but in a physical sense, not emotional. Something hurt… the lights were too bright… I couldn’t concentrate. Happy birthday, it’s a migraine! Mike and I were going to his mom’s house, so right before that I stopped at CVS and got some pills while Mike got me some Starbucks (a cold caffeinated beverage might help). When we walked into his mom’s house, they both could tell I seemed not-right, and let me lie down for awhile. I took a nap on my birthday, something I haven’t done since I was 3 probably. I woke up feeling much better after that.
We spent the afternoon with his mom playing with her new iPad, had a nice dinner at a nearby restaurant and said goodbye for the night. On the way home, Mike and I stopped at Target to pick up a few household necessities. I got a Cherry Limeade at Sonic on the way home and that was that. I ped-egged myself and put on some lotion, washed my face, took out my contact lenses and I’m going to bed soon. It was a good day… I got a million Facebook birthday wishes, calls, texts and niceness from everyone today. I might have felt crappy about the day to start, but that was just all in my head. I had a very nice day.
