Not Exactly the Stones I Wanted for My Birthday

Months ago, I told Dave I wanted a birthstone ring for my birthday. A pretty peridot ring. That's all! Imagine my surprise when my "birthday present" came early...Sunday night to be exact, in the form of Kidney stones. Yikes, is this painful. This birthday has turned out to be pretty sucky. Worse than the year I turned 14 and my ear canals swelled shut from a massive ear infection.

Apparently bad birthdays happen every 20 years for me. And no, I didn't get the peridot ring. I did, however, get Vicodin and rainbow sherbet. Now if that isn't a combo, I don't know what is!!

Happy Birthday to ME!!!!!!!!

Also sharing this day with me?

Fellow Ohioan Neil Armstrong, Maureen McCormick (Marcia, Marcia, MARCIA!), Loni Anderson, and Patrick Ewing.

So, no cake or celebrations today...but this weekend I'm reclaiming my day!
