The most important lesson I learned on this, the first day of my 28th year of life, is that my neighborhood grocery store sells The Oatmeal birthday cards.
I think I’ll be sending birthday cards a lot more consistently now.
I’m actually really impressed and shocked that my husband had already bought my card this weekend. He managed to surprise me a second time when he gave me “Megamind” on Blu-Ray to watch with the kid. Unfortunately for her, she’s not allowed to watch it until she’s two. Won’t stop me from watching it during naptime!
That’s about as exciting as today gets because I am still miserable with this sinus infection. It is somehow getting worse every day, so I think I may have to give in and call my family care doctor for antibiotics. It’s bad enough that using a Neti pot causes excruciating burning sensations. The good news is that this is the first time in TWO AND A HALF YEARS that I can use medication. I am not trying to get pregnant, actually pregnant, or nursing. Pseudoephedrine is a magical drug and I want to marry my bottle of Nyquil.
Seriously, I’m about to eat some birthday cake and wash it down with Nyquil. That stuff is amazing.
Have I mentioned how much I missed cold medicine? It was so hard to not take it for so long when I knew it would make me feel so much better (it was, however, totally worth it and I have no regrets). I’ve also reunited with my trusty friend naproxen (Aleve) and my plantar fasciitis is much improved as well.
Anyways, I’m going to go eat my cake and read a book. That is genuinely all I wanted to do for my birthday, so I win!
