Birthday accounting


+ Hooray! It was my birthday!  (5)
– I'd have been thrilled with the weather in Seattle, but here it's too chilly (2)
+ I have amazing, wonderful friends (15)
– Going to work on MY day (3)
+ T-Rider coming back and bringing his friends down to the restaurant (5)
– The restaurant being completely mobbed so I couldn't socialize with anyone who came to see me (6)
+ A nice phone call with my mom (12)
– A 2am email from my real father that I haven't yet bothered to read (7)
+ Birthday wishes from unexpected people I haven't talked to in a long time (3)

Total = 22!  So I am still winning at life!  Huzzah!!

I spent a lot of time yesterday thinking about my family and my friends and how completely lucky I am to have them and to be where I am.

ETA: Apparently this is confusing?  These are yesterday's events I am accounting for. Today, so far, I have done nothing but work and chat with Tim. Which, overall, ain't a bad way to spend a morning.

  1. Happy birthday! I think it's impossible to lose at life if it's your birthday. 🙂

  2. Happy Birthday, dude. I hope you have fabulousness abounding!

  3. Happy birthday to you!!!Btw, if you don't
    mind, let me invite you personally to join my new created group of birthdays and add this post there 🙂 Thanks in advance for joining!

  4. Dude, I thought your birthday was yesterday. God, I'm so bad at birthdays. Even when I remember to wish happy birthday, it's like I still fail at them. Haha!

  5. Yes, it was yesterday, which is why I am tallying up the events now, since if I'd tried to it yesterday it would have too hard, as none of it would have happened yet. 🙂

  6. My brain. It is wonky. You love me anyway, though, right?

  7. Happy Belated Birthday! Sorry I missed it.
