I woke up Sunday morning very groggy because Fred and I were up until 3:00 am, working on the walk video (from my previous post). Fred and Elise brought me my card and presents, and after I nursed Elise, I went back to sleep until about 11:00. I am just way too old to stay up that late (we were up until 3:00 the night before too).
I thought Fred and I (and Elise, of course) were going to have a nice quiet dinner out, but somehow he managed to sneak 20 of our friends (plus three toddlers) into a reserved room without me noticing. There was much merriment and, of course, cake!
When I remember back to my birthday last year, I'm struck at how sad that day was for me. I don't remember why, as I've written in a previous post, 2008 was a horrible year for me. Only one week after I turned 32, Elise was diagnosed with diabetes. Perhaps I had an impending sense of doom... I don't know. I just remember feeling very bleak about the year ahead.
Fortunately, I have a good feeling about 33!
