Reasons why my birthday sucked (but was wonderful)
-My sister gifted me the cutest tea steeper
-My dad said happy birthday over Facebook
-My toddler serenaded me with 'mom mom mom mom mom' all day and I LOVED it
-My uncle said happy birthday over Facebook
-My mom was very bubbly and pleasant today
-My grandpa did not say happy birthday
-My little sister drew me a very cute picture
-I never received a phone call wishing me happy birthday from my dad or uncle like I usually do, wishing me a happy birthday
-My son started saying the word "Kisses" 😍
-I had a lingering disappointment all day that I tried to get rid of but damped the excitement of things.
-I had ice cream after breakfast and dinner.
-It was stormy out.
-I made my favorite pasta dish for dinner.
-I started my period. EARLY. ON MY BIRTHDAY. AGH.
-My childhood friend called to wish me happy birthday 💕
So yeah. I'm feeling mixed and I am trying to make myself grateful for everything I've been given. Because I do have a good life even if we don't have a lot of money. I do wish that my uncle and dad would have held up their traditions of at least calling me, but I don't want that to ruin my day even if it made me feel unimportant. I sound like the biggest brat but I really needed to write this out so I can go to bed and move on.
