another year

By Tara Zandra | June 1, 2008

My week did not really improve last week but Saturday was my 34th birthday and today was nice so all should be well. But I’ve got a case of not being able to sleep due to overthinking problems.

My birthday was pretty good this year. It started with sleeping until 8:30am so that’s already a great start. I had cards from the kids and Chris waiting for me upon my awakening. My present was a computer game called “Diner Dash- Hometown Hero.” It’s a sequel to a game we all enjoy playing. I had told Chris not to get me anything so it was technically from the girls. Tabitha gets very sad when I say I don’t want presents so Chris always helps her pick out something small and this was perfect. What I asked for from my mom was for her to come and stay with the kids for the day while Chris and I went shopping at an outlet mall. So that’s what we did. I was shopping for all of us though, not just me, as I truly enjoy getting stuff for everyone. For lunch I had a nice slice of cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory and that’s all I wanted. Though later in the day Chris and I did go to Outback Steakhouse for salads, a bloomin’ onion, and fried mushrooms. That evening, after Daisy went to bed, Chris and Tabi went out and came back with my favorite ice cream from Baskin Robbins.

Today we took care of errands such as recycling and the grocery store and then played games the rest of the day. The girls’ uncle bought them the Indiana Jones Mr. Potato Head so they brought all the Potato stuff into the living room and played with those for quite a while. After dinner we took a walk to CVS for treats of the candy variety but while we were there their computer system crashed rendering their registers useless. So we stopped at a mini-mart on our walk home instead since I had promised the girls treats.

Now I need to figure out how to stop thinking and make the knots in my stomach go away so I can sleep.
