Well I’m sorry that I didn’t post more often about my birthday week, but I was just too exhausted by life. Being around family, even when they aren’t being actively emotionally or verbally abusive, is exhausting and I forgot to take that into account when I planned the things that I would be doing this week. Well, I am not very realistic about my/our physical limitations; it’s just not anything we have ever been good at.
I did watch some movies that I absolutely love. We listened to some audio books downloaded onto my phone more often, especially since I really try to spend time out and about with my headphones on. It gives me a lot more time to listen to books and that is a good thing.
We got out with our bike five times this week and that was great. I had planned on doing it today too, but it was very rainy so I decided to stay inside and rest up for an outing tomorrow.
The Teens didn’t get a lot of time to read graphic novels. But I made a point of giving them some time yesterday and today. We have some compilations from the library and I want to make sure they have time for that. Fitting in things we want to do is always a challenge.
The Littles watched some animated movies and enjoyed them a lot. We had several pizza parties with movies this week and that was great. I enjoy giving them things that they love and this was such an easy thing to do for them. Their joy and love of life and me just bowls me over and knocks me on my kiester. I wish that I knew that I deserved their love. I’m working on it.
We had lunch and supper with relatives and that went very well. We had a small piece of chocolate cake, though we surely would have loved a bigger piece and then a second one, but I was too full from lunch and we didn’t get an offer to take any cake home with us, bummer.
We eat pizza often so we planned on tacos for lunch and then to a Mexican restaurant for dinner and no it was not too much of one kind of food. It was wonderful and delicious. It was a wonderful birthday gift.
The day after our birthday we went to Culver’s and had a turtle sundae, which has vanilla frozen custard, hot fudge, butterscoth, and pecans, yum. It is usually the only dessert that I get at Culver’s. I always tell myself that if I went more often I would try other items, but seriously I don’t think so. 🙂
We enjoyed our birthday week so much that I decided that we would do an “Unbirthday Party” for ourselves, once a month, so I will try to post on how that goes as well.
Anyway happy birthday to you all. And a happy unbirthday as well. 🙂
