My birthday today. Equal parts "yay" and "blech".


The sun came out for a little while.
I got a sweet card and gift from my BFF and she treated me to a yummy lunch out.
My father called first thing this morning.
Zero contact from XWH, not that I really expected any but I was a little nervous.
Going salsa dancing tonight with friends.


Keep thinking about this day last year.
Got an obvious last-minute/zero-thought gift from XWH.
Got a sappy, romantic card from XWH.
Got on a plane that evening and flew to visit my parents for the weekend. I now know that OW was camped out at my house the whole time I was gone.
My mother still hasn't called me today.
I'm older.
I'm grayer.
I'm tired-er. (is that a word? It should be.)

Happy birthday! Mine is in 3 days. I don't think I got anything from the Snake last year. Whatevs. Hugs on your mom though what's up with that?

Happy birthday! I hope the yays ended up winning out.

I recently had my 44th birthday. My 42nd was spent in the psych ward after my suicide attempt. It was when I was posting about that that I coined the phrase that later became my tag line: "The best thing about hitting rock bottom is that everything after that looks fucking fabulous!"

And you, my friend deserve fucking fabulous. Each year you will continue to get fabulouser!

Thanks for the birthday wishes!

Salsa was fun. I go with the same group every Friday and its usually the high point of my week. I'm really glad my birthday (and Valentines) fell on Friday this year.

Headed out with some other friends tonight for dinner, and more dancing. This time it will be country and some West Coast Swing. Sometimes I'm still amazed at how much fuller my life is now that XWH is not in it!

When I got home late last night there was a voicemail from my mom. Not sure why she delayed calling all day, but at least I can stop worrying about her now.

It is a gorgeous, sunny day here today. Will probably take my little dog for a walk. So far the first day of my 45th year has been alright.
