Have you ever had one of those birthday's where you just wish it was over? That was me today. Don't get me wrong, I am thankful that I had a birthday however the day was just all wrong. Let me tell you what happened and you can decide if I'm just feeling sorry for myself!

1. This was the first time EVER that I've been in school on my birthday, as a student and as a teacher having kids.

2. Aaron, MY HUSBAND, forgot my birthday. Yep, that's right, I walked out of the house this morning and not a happy birthday was said!

3. I got some flowers from my parents, which are so beautiful. However I was a little disappointed b/c I thought maybe they were from Aaron.(thanks mom and dad - i love them!)

4. Did I mention that I'm teaching Kindergarten? If you've ever taught Kindergarten before you know what I mean!

5. FINALLY - at the end of the day, I got some flowers from Aaron. They were gorgeous and they were the flowers that were in my wedding bouqet(pretty sure he didn't mean to do that!)

6. Day was over - went to pick up my baby. Only to find out that he only slept 1 and 1/2 hrs, which means that he was getting grumpy already!

7. Was looking forward to a massage from my sister-in-law, only to find out that she left her oils in Wichita. She did go buy some, but she was upset b/c it wasn't the best kind and it left me extremely sticky! (I didn't care, I was just glad she gave me one!)

8. Went to dinner with Aaron's parent's (yesterday was Tim's b-day). That was good, Eli did ok. Remember that he only slept for 1 and 1/2hrs.

9. He cried all the way home! (from grandparent's house to ours)

10. Got home and went for a walk with our neigbors and we're enjoying their company right now.

I'm sure some of you are reading this and thinking, get over it Shannon. But you know when you have an idea of how a day might go and it doesn't? Well that was my day. Oh well, tomorrow's another day I guess!

That was my birthday last year. My 30th. I guess I was expecting a little something extra, since it was a big one. What I got was less than normal. The good news? Corey really made up for it this year. Maybe Aaron will do the same?! :)
