I had my birthday party Saturday. It was a really great time. I was disappointed for awhile because a lot of people canceled on me at the last moment. Someone was sick or their car was broken down. Honestly after the 10th person has called with some reason why they couldn't come the excuses start going in one ear and out the other. I am sure some reasons were perfectly legitimate, it just gets old.

OK. There is one little thing that has been driving me a little batty. What? Well with the new year I see all of these facebook status updates and twitter things saying stuff like "OMG I'm so excited for 2011!" or "This year is gonna be great, I just know it!" or "I can't wait to see what this year brings me!!"
Number 1 reason why it irritates me? Well..honestly...I've never thought this way. I never sit and think about what the year as a whole will be. I flatly accept that it will NOT all be good. There will be good days and bad days, just like last year. There will be days when I feel good and there will be days when I want to whine and I feel like crap. It's all the same. Last year, will for the most part be the same as this year. There could be a a great day. I am not saying there will not be. I take the good with the bad. I am happy if at the end of the day I'm still breathing. One person commented on my opinion on this suggesting I not become a therapist. I whole heartily disagree! I am not being negative here. This is what I'm trying to say. I think just knowing and accepting reality for what it is is a very GOOD thing. I realize not every day will bring joy and I also realize there will be hard times. I accept it. I prepare myself for it. I am ok with it. I don't want there to be bad days, like the time I was diagnosed with cancer, or the time I lost my dad...or the time I lost my baby. I also remember the day I was declared cancer free. I remember the days my children were born. See where I am going with this? Those same people who say they are so excited will be the same people who inevitably complain later about how much this year sucks and then you'll hear the SAME thing from them later saying NEXT year is gonna be it! Next year is gonna be great, I just know it. I say, be thankful for each day, one by one, minute by minute because you shouldn't take ONE for granted. Nothing is promised to you. NOTHING. Be happy for what you have now. I hope I have cleared up my opinion on this matter. :)

On my birthday I won an online contest for 2 free sandwiches at a local bar and grill. I still haven't went to go eat them, though I'd really like to. I may have to save it for a weekend. I haven't got a lot of time during the week with the kids in school. I had a great birthday though. I took the family to see Gulliver's Travels and though it got some bad reviews I actually liked it. The only really cringe worthy parts were the peeing the fire out (though I heard this is in the actual book) and the very end scene....where inevitably Jack Black sings. The guys got vocals. He really does and I love his sound. I just think he doesn't have to put it in every movie. Honestly I think they tried too hard to put it in this one because it really doesn't belong at all. Other than that we laughed, had a good time. I get another birthday though because my big party is on Saturday. I'm just heading up to a local bar with lots of friends. I'm anxious. I haven't really been "out" in a long time. Bring on the Captain!!!!
