Bonne anniversaire a...moi!

If you've been reading, you know that I've had a pretty rough week. Monday's news left me crying until the well of my tears had run dry. Tuesday's discovery really just pissed me off. Wednesday, I had to have a biopsy. They say that bad things happen in threes. But even so, the outlook for the birthday festvities on Thursday did not look good.

Since the week was sucking so badly, I decided to take Friday off. I spent the better part of the morning at my favorite spa -- I got a massage, a mani/pedi, and even got my hair done. Then I went shopping (always a favorite activity). I took the puppy on an extra long walk. I enjoyed a long workout, not feeling rushed for the first time in a long time. And then, after taking as long as I wanted to get ready, the new man and I went to a comedy/magic show, where I laughed so hard that my tummy still hurts this morning.

So the hellish week ended happily after all. And my birthday was a happy one, despite the other not-so-happy events of this week. Thanks to everyone for your support about my dad. And thanks to everyone for the birthday cards, flowers, gifts, lunches/dinners, etc. I've never doubted that I have the best friends and family around, but if ever there was a week when I needed a little confirmation, this was it. So thanks for being there.

I heart you all!

"Laughter is the best medicine." Too bad it doesn't cure key scratches on cars.

Happy birthday, blue eyes. Hugs from Oregon.

Happy belated birthday Nicole :)

Carl Spackler said...

hey nicole... on a serious note, my step mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and came out ok. she went through chemo, lost her hair, the whole deal so i can somewhat relate to your situation. it seems like you have a very close knit family with plenty of support. if you ever get down just let us know, we will gladly cheer you up!

Nicole - I thought I'd post my response regarding your convention companionship comment on Spackler's page here since you'll look here first.

First of all, there is not a competition between me and Carl but instead the competition is between you and the other female bloggers attending the convention. Right now you're in good shape - keep it up!

Second - as you said yourself, Carl lives 3,000 miles away while Im up the road from you.

Third - the reason I don't currently have a blog is because I am one of the creative minds behind Spackler's blog so why split it up?

Nicole said...

Welcome Dong and Steph!
