Yesterday was my birthday. Always a difficult day in my life.

From the time I was a little kid birthdays were always hard for me thanks to my "family".

I only remember having a cake once in my life. My sister threw me a surprise party when I was in high school.
When Mark and I were first married we had a cake for me at his familys house. I think it was around Christmas but they wanted to celebrate my birthday. I was so overwhelmed I burst into tears.
Since that time people know I don't handle the cake thing very well. Give me cheesecake, an ice cream, cupcake and I am okay but a cake I go teary. I can hardly eat cake period.
Some scars are so deep that they don't ever heal.

Tonight Mark and I going out to celebrate my birthday. We have a lousy selection of restaurants in town but I chose a great mexican place. It is very casual so it will be perfect. I've been craving chil relleno all week. yummy.
Yesterday started off very nice. When I went down stairs to feed the dogs about 5:30 am I found flowers on the kitchen table along with gifts and a card. I'm still not sure how Mark pulled that off because I greeted him at the door the night before and I'm sure I would have noticed if he had flowers. Very sneaky but wonderful. Thanks Mark.

My sister called ( I was on a conference call) my inlaws called and of course my mom in law.
But once again my parents didn't bother to call.
After the stunt they pulled last year I am not surprised. I haven't shared it with many people but those that I have all had the same reaction. "give me their phone number, I want to .....
I have great friends.
Thank you all for the birthday wishes. It really really means alot to me.
To my facebook friends, to my personal friends, to Mark's family, my sis and especially Mark. THANK YOU. I love you lots. Oops I forgot the dogs who cuddled with me yesterday and made me laugh, as always !!!


Tell a friend !
