A Very Merry Un-Birthday!

Hey Humble Readers!

I hope you all have been having a good week, and that you have something fun planned for the weekend ahead of you!  My week has been pretty blech, but it is getting better now.  My weekend plans aren't anything spectacular, but provided that the weather holds we'll be headed south to visit my MIL tomorrow afternoon, then church on Sunday. 

This morning I was surprised to realize what the date was... my un-birthday, or rather my half-birthday.  And while I don't normally get gifts on my un-birthday, last year I got a doozy!  :)  Some of you may recall this post, when I got my first faint positive hpt that hinted at the impending arrival of our sweet wee girl. 

A bit blurry because she's ALWAYS in motion!
It's so amazing to see the difference a year makes. 

So, I wasn't expecting a gift on this un-birthday.  But I did...

AF showed up this afternoon.  :)

Did I freak you out?  LOL!  Probably not, but I think it's darn funny.  At least I know that my body is starting to get back to normal.  I know that my cycle will likely be wonky for the next while, but I'm just glad that there's a reason for all the cramps and pms I've had for the last week and a half.  I'm actually already starting to feel a bit more like myself.  I honestly thought I was losing my mind.  Now I just have a killer backache and some mild cramps. 

Who thought I would be this happy to have the witch show up? 


  1. "A veeeery merry unbirthday to you, and you!"

    Glad you're feeling better, that you are syncing up you body and mind again :)

  2. Happy un birthday to you! And I am glad that you finally got AF so you can feel more like yourself again. p.s. I just read two great YA books, Matched and Half Brother -loved them both!! :)

  3. Yay for AF's return :) and yes, you did fool me! Just for a second. Take care

  4. I've always been reminded of my half-birthday because that day is my brother's wierd. My mother used to give me a present that day too, but of course, no one does anymore. I do, however, usually get my kids a cupcake on their half-birthday because halves are so important at that age. I heard my son telling someone yesterday that he will be 7 1/2 in 2 weeks.

    I haven't visited your blog before, so want to congratulate you on the birth of your beautiful daughter. You went through a lot to have her, but I hope that the #2 you are hoping for is easier.

    All the best,
    Lisa (ICLW #112)
