my pity party

tomorrow is my birthday. I was determined this year wouldn't suck like every other year.
months ago I arranged to leave ds (who has spd and a really hard time in stores) with a friend and spend the day shopping with my mom and dd. when asked what I wanted for my birthday by my mom and husband I told them money for our trip. finally a fun birthday!
I just cancelled it. ds is getting a cold and I don't want him to infect my friends kids. he's crying. I'm completely bummed.
today we had planned a family bike ride to the park and a picnic.
it's raining.
plus I just discovered yesterday both of my kids went through growth spurts and need new shirts.
I'm bummed. I should have known something would happen to ruin my plans. instead I get to stay home cleaning and caring for my sick ds and almost recovered dd.
and yes things could be worse but there has only been 1 birthday my entire life that has been good no matter how hard my family tries to make it otherwise. birthday parties nobody showed up to, getting up early for the first day of school back from break (uggh that reminds me I have to start homeschooling again tomorrow), illnesses, hubby s work schedule, something always ruins any plans that we have.
I hate my birthday.

That sucks.  Maybe you could try to arrange it for a week or two from now.

yay! hubby remembered that his sister was just getting over a cold and is probably where we got ours. so he called her and not only is she keeping him tomorrow but she's taking him in a few hours for the night!

Have your birthday on an UN birthday day in the summer. We've done unbirthdays or half birthdays when timing or something didn't mesh for our actual birthday.
Happy Birthday, hope you all feel better soon.

I'm glad it was all able to work out for you. Are you still going shopping?
