dragging ass

ugggggh.    I hate insomnia so mf’ing much!!!!!    Lately my problem isn’t falling asleep, it’s staying asleep.  I woke up at 4am after falling asleep at midnight and I am beyond exhausted.   Suck it insomnia.   I’ve already had 2 cups of coffee and I’m still sleepy.   I’m totally wearing my cranky pants today, which sucks because today’s my birthday !  I love birthdays, I’m so grateful for another day and another year with my family.   But I’m still sleepy, and a little cranky.  Meh.

When I was taking the trash out this morning I noticed that the lilacs haven’t bloomed yet.   Lilacs are almost always fully bloomed on my birthday but our roller coaster weather must have messed up their clock.  Anyway I bring up the lilacs because they got me thinking about birthday memories.   I’m grateful for EVERY birthday but there are a few that stick out:

5th birthday.   I had chicken pox.   If I remember correctly I think my parents still had my birthday party for my friends but I obviously couldn’t go.

8th birthday.   I remember being so excited about bringing in pink frosted cupcakes to school with a red m&m on top and having my first sleepover party.

16th birthday.   I got my permit and a stereo

25th birthday.  I went to Disneyworld for the first time for a broadcast.  It was amazing and I got to bring kiddo.

28th birthday.   I was told my position was being eliminated (shout out Ryan Seacrest!)

My birthdays are always lovely, those were some of the memories that flew back when I was looking at the yet to bloom lilacs.   What are some of your birthday memories?
