It didn't hurt much.... I am. One year older.

As my birth "moment" occured...I was in the triage unit of the Labor and Delivery unit I work on. I looked at the clock at precisely 1:42 am. That was the time that I was born. Or so my mom says....ha. My rear was kicked last night. I ended up working the unit by myself, for 4-5hours. And it was a bit crazy. But I felt good. I was on my game and the IV's were sliding in like butter. (Only a nurse can appreciate that).

This birthday is just mildly freaking me out. My last 30-something birthday.

All is well. I am well. My family is well.

And I have a surprise cake waiting for me in the oven. I am not supposed to know about it...but my sweet 3yo blabbed the secret to me within seconds of me walking in the front door this morning. She even walked me to the oven and showed me the display.

I will be appropriately surprised when the "surprise" is revealed later this evening.
I am hoping to get some scrapbooking done in the next couple of gift to myself.
***crossing fingers***
Pizza Hut will be delivering my birthday feast this evening. I don't think that a gal should have to cook her own b-day you???
Oh yeah...the cake above? My dream b-day cake. Someday...
Have a wonderful day!!!
