What I didn't post on the blog was that after I put the kids to bed last August 25th, I sat down to write thank you cards to all the people who had done so much for us prior to our move to Virginia. All the good memories and goodbyes, coupled with loneliness and another birthday, resulted in hysterical sobbing.
All the bitter of last year made this birthday even sweeter. I mean, how many times do you turn 29 again?
We celebrated my birthday early because August 25th is the worst work day of the year for Jamie. My sweet Grandma sent money to order a real cake this year. I promised to post a picture of it.
