Celebrate We Will, Cause Life Is Short But Sweet For Certain.

I had a tiny gathering at my place last night to celebrate my birthday. Just the old school core group. It was still somewhat overwhelming for me, but it was good to catch up with everyone, and I felt pretty good most of the night. Plus, they get the sitch and understand when I need a break.

I don’t have many pics to share. Frey took a bunch on her fancy camera, but I don’t have those yet.

The night kind of ended on a sour note between the husband and myself due to a misunderstanding. Feelings are a bitch. Things are cool now though, so that’s what matters.

We shut the party down around midnight. D had to travel early, and I just can’t party like I used to. Though I’ve noticed that, as a group, we just don’t party as hard anymore. We’re all getting old. Lol.

Happy Birthday To Me!

So this is 43:

I woke up feeling pretty rough, and thought the day was a bust, but I ended up getting better rather quickly. The symptoms became manageable enough that I was able to go out to lunch, do some shopping, and have dinner out. We ended up with this fabulous family pic, which I’m obsessed with:

After dinner, we came home and rented The Black Phone, which was really good. Highly recommended.

It was a really good day. I’m so very thankful. ♥️

D’s 49th Birthday 🎉

We spoiled him with lots of presents, and then went out for a fancy steak dinner. Unfortunately, I got a migraine during dinner which kind of killed the mood a bit. But I hope it was still a good day for him. He deserved a good day. The celebration continues tonight with Jackson at home. Then Saturday he’s having a drink day party at our local brewery. Then Sunday is Father’s Day. His birthday is always the same weekend as Father’s Day. We call it Dave Weekend. ♥️


Last night was crazy fun.

We did a tequila tasting with C&J.

I lost count of how many shots were had. So many.

Much fun was had.

They left around 1:30 to relieve their sitter, but D and I decided to party on. So we stayed up until four having a dance party.

During which this happened:


I forgot how high our ceilings are when I let it go, so I lost my dance flair. Sad face.

It was a super fun night, and I’m looking forward to the 15th when we celebrate C’s birthday. We love our couple besties.

My favorite part of the night was when D looked at me and said, “I love being married to you.”

Me too, babe. So much. ♥️

other news

I am working today (boo), but I am off tomorrow. I look forward to a long weekend.

Tonight, D & I are having a night in the city. We have reservations at one of our favorite patio places, and staying overnight at the Chase. Birthday 2.0.

I have a feeling we won’t be able to go out much longer. Shit is getting real here in MO. In fact, the county we live in has the highest increase in cases, which is not surprising to me at all.

Back to my birthday: Birthday 3.0 will happen on Saturday night, when C&J come over. I’m excited about that, too.

I am spoiled.

At my oncology appointment on Tuesday, my doc told me that he is moving from my preferred hospital, and will be retiring next year. He’s going to introduce me to a new oncologist at my next appointment. D looked her up, and she is relatively new, which I’m actually kind of pumped about. I think I will have an easier time communicating with her. I would sum up my current doctor by saying he needs to talk less and say more. He always buries the lead with a bunch of blah, blah, blah, and completely confuses everything. It doesn’t inspire confidence.

He also told me that my case is going in front of the tumor board next week, which will review my current treatment plan. Neither of us anticipate them making any changes, given my current NED status. He also had blood drawn to send off for genetic testing to determine whether I have any mutations which would result in certain treatments being more or less effective. I’m happy about both of these things, as I’ve been wanting them from the beginning.

Bizzy went to doggie daycare for the first time since quarantine started. He was sooooo happy. He actually screamed. I don’t know how else to describe it. He gets to play all day, and he is staying over tonight, so that D and I can do our city date.

The plan for my day off tomorrow? Lounge about and watch scary movies – unless my husband has other plans for us. Maybe do some reading. I’m still reading A People’s History and recently started Mexican Gothic. I’m thinking about purchasing the entire Babysitter’s Club series as well, but it is pricey.

I’ve actually felt better since I’ve been off Keto. This happened last time, too. I don’t think my digestive system can handle it. It sucks, because it is such an effective method of weight loss. I don’t know what to do. Maybe I’ll try to eat lower carb, but not so low carb that I actually go into ketosis? Idk – I want to be fitter, but I don’t want to obsess over my weight. I look good, right? Right.

I’m not going to spend whatever time I have left hating myself, and I don’t want to waste time feeling bad for reasons I can control. I feel plenty bad enough without creating more problems for myself.

Also – that ass… I’m not getting any complaints. lol.

I really do need to get that treadmill moved to my house though. I should work on that tomorrow.

Okay – I am being boring now, and I need to pay attention to this hearing, so bye. Happy Friday eve!

This is #41

A birthday reference and a DMB reference. Nice.

I slept until 11:30, and IT WAS GLORIOUS.

Then D and I went out for lunch.

I’m back on carbs for a while. Obvi. Birthday carbs don’t count, right?

After lunch, we went to pick up the kids, and then headed home, where this was waiting:

And then Nick & Nancy dropped by with cupcakes!

My besties came by, and it was wonderful. They brought gifts. I feel so spoiled!

My husband made a Mexican feast. My favorite!

There was a DMB Drive-in concert tonight, and #41 was on the setlist.

Freya’s band practice was canceled tonight, and I was really happy, because it meant we all got to be together tonight.

It was a fabulous day. ♥️♥️♥️♥️
