Pretending I'm not nervous

Is it Thursday already? I can't believe I missed posting yesterday. I had great plans to write all about my fabulous birthday and to post a million and one photos of the festivities, but alas... it didn't happen. Instead, I had to go to the hospital for my pre-op paperwork and blood tests, then on a preschool field trip through the woods. In the afternoon, I tried to get organized for today {do all laundry, prep meals ahead, write down anything and everything that Alan might need to know while I'm, umm, indisposed} and then I had a lovely long Skype date with Em, who always makes me feel better {was starting to get a bit irrational and panicky...} After that I took the boys to the park to play and bask in the sunshine, and to stay distracted. And then, suddenly, the day was over and I was packing my bag for surgery.

So, all that to say, I'm sorry! No birthday photos today. I'll get to them early next week for sure. In the meantime, just wanted to thank you for all your happy messages the past few days~ I love you guys!~ and to let you know I'm off to the hospital this morning to get that pesky gall bladder removed. Send me lots of happy, healing vibes, won't you please? I'm sure it will all turn out just fine, but I'll feel better knowing you've all got your fingers crossed for me!

I'll be back soon, and then I'll be in bed for the week, with a big stack of books and magazines, a pile of dvds to watch, and plenty of time to ramble on to all of you. You know you just can't wait ;~)

E xo
