Happy Birthday to me!!



My birthday is really tomorrow but I know there will be no blogging!! Ok- really I hate my birthday which usually really makes my family irritated with me, but let me give you some history on me. The first reason I hate my birthday is because my dad died the day after my 16th birthday. I spent my sweet sixteen in the hospice unit in the local hospital. Not that I didn't want to be there because I love my dad and we wanted to be there- Just piss poor timing if you ask me. I do have to admit the nurses had told my mom he wouldn't live through the day so she sat there all day and told him "Tom, it's Courtney's birthday". So he did live through the day and the hospices nurses went out and bought me a cake and we had my party right there in the hospital. Not ideal but I still had my family. I know my dad wouldn't want me to dislike my birthday for that and him dying so close to my birthday is not the real reason I dislike my birthday so much. My true reason for hating my birthday is that I "age" another year!! I don't like being another year older- I know it beats the alternative but still. After I turned 21- it is like they just make you "old" and there isn't any really good birthdays to look forward to again. My husband really gets mad at me around my birthday as I start whining that I am turning another year older. I just don't like being another year older- I told him that it really means I have been on Earth for almost 33 years!! Shit- I haven't even officially turned 32 yet!! Ughh!

But to give you some info since I have been a slacker this week. I went for my preop appt with Dr Never Smiles on Weds. She went over what we were going to do and asked if I had any questions. I informed her that my only request was that under NO circumstances was she allowed to do a hysterectomy on me!! I also told Bobby that as well. Dr Never Smiles informed me that she wouldn't be performing that on me so to not worry! Since I will be asleep I just wanted my case known before hand- you know like being an organ donor or something! They also drew some blood and gave me some prescriptions. I don't have any infections and hemoglobin is "normal" so surgery is still on. So Tuesday it is!!

Last but not least! The most exciting part of the weekend for me is that my wonderful and awesome husband got us tickets for the Virginia Tech football game this weekend for my birthday!! Besides a baby- he gave me the best present!! I love watching my Hokies play football and it is even better when I get to watch it there!! In the full beauty of the stadium and the smells of the stadium food and hear the crowd and ... ahhh I am in love! It is simply the best gift he could have gotten me!! He does love me!! I know he doesn't quite enjoy it as much as I do- but he knows how much I love it!! I can't wait to go and be there!! It is also Homecoming to boot!! He is really the best husband ever!! GO HOKIES!!! Happy Birthday to me!!! Let's Go Hokies!!! Win big for me- it is my birthday after all!!

It's your birthday and you can hate it if you want to! I just read your latest entry and that part made me sad. I can't imagine what all you went through when your dad was so sick. I know you miss him terribly.
Besides giving you the baby, the Hokie football tickets are awesome! Wish I could be there with you, because it's some of my favorite smells, sights and feelings at the stadium! Go HOKIES! You and Bobby have a blast. Love you. Kim
