Happy Birthday to Me

Well it's my birthday...yea! I have had a good day, and it continues to get better. This morning I got to eat breakfast with my sister, Lisa, and Jennifer. They got me a dozen roses, and had a little party. I was totally not expecting that. Lisa cooked a wonderful breakfast. And I have great leftovers in my fridge! If you have never had sopapilla cheesecake you're missing out!

I was a little bummed today, because the place in Slaton that I wanted to move to told me this morning that they wouldn't rent to me, because I didn't have enough rental history. And I said, you're right, I have owned my own house for the last 4 years. So no, I don't have any rental history. I even told them my parents would co-sign and they said no. It was just really dumb. Well come to find out, she called me back a little bit ago and said she changed her mind. She would rent to me and the reason why she didn't want to was because she didn't really like my parents. She said they were difficult to work with. My mema lived in the those duplexes before she went to the nursing home, and my parents were the ones who dealt with her when something would go wrong. I told my mom that, and she felt bad. She didn't know that they thought they were difficult to work with....but anywho...I have a place to live now. I should move in a week to two weeks.

I really think it's going to be good for me. I know Lubbock isn't a big town, but I think for me right now it will be good to get out of Lubbock and clear my head a little bit. The small town life is just a little bit slower, and I think that's what I need. Well that in addition to the extra help that my parents will provide! I am still planning on going to church in Lubbock. I think that it is important for me to keep a connection to some things. I really enjoy Monterey, and they have been a real source of comfort for me.

Today when I took Madi to school her teacher stopped me and wanted to talk to me. I was like oh great, please tell me this isn't bad. I just can't take it right now! And it wasn't bad, it was just that some of the boys have a big crush on Madi and she just wants me to be aware. She said that at the beginning of the school year the same thing happened, and some of the mothers thought it was really cute and would take pictures of the boys and girls together, and make a big deal out of it. So now, some of the boys think that is what they're supposed to do. I didn't know that sexual harassment could happen at such an early age! Anyways, I asked her what I could do on my end and she said, just be aware and listen to Madi. But she said that she is adjusting very well, and is fitting in great. She said she is very confident. (Anyone who has ever been around Madi knows that!) Her teacher told me that when they went to P.E. Madi said, "oh good I can show everyone my soccer skills." She cracks me up. She is such a fun girl.

Well I am going to start getting ready in a little bit. We are meeting all of my family at Texas Roadhouse for dinner. I was so tired today, but I'm starting to perk up. You know you're tired when you can sit in a chair with a 2 1/2 year old and and an 8 month old in your lap and doze off. Yes, I did that today. They are both very active, but I still managed to fall asleep. But don't worry, no one was hurt.

Happy birthday (late)! March 23rd is also my my nephew's birthday (Aaron and Valisa's boy, Luke). I didn't realize that you were moving, but it sounds like it will be a good move for you.

Hey, I'm sorry I missed your birthday. Cheri called me and I so wanted to come, but I couldn't find any one to cover my class. We will have to go out and celebrate ourselves. How about this Saturday? Maybe I can treat you to brunch. We could go somewhere kid friendly if that would help. And turning 30 isn't so bad, I'm still alive!! Love you and talk to you soon.
