I turn 29 today. I thought in honor of the day I would do a little reminiscing.
10 years ago: I was enjoying my freshman year at Bryn Mawr. The guy I was dating at the time actually came and seranaded me from outside my dorm room window, then he blindfolded me and took me to a nearby park where he had set up a little table with birthday cake. It was incredibly sweet (the date not the cake... although the cake was good too). I haven't thought about that in ages! I was also looking forward to my summer in DC working as an intern for a congressman on Capital Hill.
5 years ago: I was married and very pregnant, anxiously awaiting Samuel's birth. We had a quiet party with John's family and a few friends from church. I was working at Carelift International trying to keep my Russian in good form. I was looking forward to quitting work and being a stay-at-home mom.
Last year: I spent the day with the boys. We went to institute at the Broomall chapel. While the kids were freaking out, I managed to gouge a chunk out of my wrist trying to catch them. On my way to meet John at his parents' house so we could go out to dinner with his office, I was rear ended by a car going about 40mph. I am hoping for better luck this year. This was my second accident (neither one my fault) within a month. I was shaken up but after the police came and made their report - wishing me a happy birthday - I met John and we went to dinner. The food was really good and John's office had gotten me balloons, a card, and a cake. So sweet. I love the people in his office.
Today: I took John to work, went grocery shopping, took a shower and dropped Sam off at school. Now I am enjoying some peace and quiet (James is napping) and looking forward to dinner and a movie with John tonight. For my birthday I was hoping for an offer on our house, but seeing as how we haven't had anyone go through the house for a month, I think it is a long shot. On the plus side, we have a showing tomorrow, so who knows?!
