Missed my blogversary and my birthday

What with one thing and another, I just realized today that I missed my blogversary. It was in February, and since we were on our trip out west, it completely escaped my mind. Then, :yesterday was my birthday. It was a very busy day.

Just a note: Don't ever start out your birthday with a visit to the Dentist.

First, I got up late. Jackie has to be to school by 8, but no one in our house woke up until 7:50. I woke up at 7:50, realized that Jackie had to go to school, and I needed to be at the dentist's office at 8:15, and then got going. I woke Jackie up, found her some clothes, and then found some for me. It was 8:00 by the time we were out the door. I'm actually pretty proud of that. Jackie even had some cereal to eat on the way. . . Four minutes of dry cereal does not a breakfast make, but it was the best we could do under the circumstances. I ran her into her classroom and then ran back out to the car. I pulled into the dentist's office at 8:17. So, I found out something interesting. Did you know that stomach acid can tear apart dental filling composit? Appearantly, when I was pregnant with Daniel, my morning sickness tore apart the fillings I already had in my mouth. So, now, I have 14 cavities to have filled. 14! Do you know what that costs without dental insurance? 14 cavities!!!!!!! $2,212 and some change. So, Happy Birthday to me. However, I did get two birthday celebrations yesterday, so by the time I had eaten cake at story time and fondue at supper, I felt much better about my B-day. A little chocolate fondue makes me feel lots better. Chocolate fondue with marshmallows, strawberries, bananas, rice crispy treats, and cheesecake to dip in it. YUMMY! Anyway, I feel much better today after a night's sleep on a stomach filled by The Melting Pot. If you ever have a very special occasion that gets ruined in the morning. A meal at The Melting Pot is the way to fix it.

Perhaps your choice of dessert wasn't such a good idea considering the state of your teeth? That is just amazing.

But other than that, I hope you had a great day. :)

The last couple of birthdays for me have been really lousy too. It goes a long way to keep saying "happy birthday to me!" each time something bad happens. I don't know why, but for some reason it makes me smile. I have decided though, that if this birthday is equally as miserable I am going to get a birthday do-over. I will just pick a random day and pretend it's my birthday. :)Sometimes you just need a good one. Anyway, Happy Birthday yesterday, and I guess better Happy-er unbirthday today!

I'm glad we were able to redeem your day. The Melting Pot was not up to its best, but its second best is still pretty amazing, huh?
