Happy Birthday to me, happy birthday to me.....

Today is my birthday January 9th. Don't really have any plans at this point other then doing school with the kids and taking the pups in to get their shots. Sound like an exciting day?
When I was younger I looked forward to my birthday and counted down but now that I have kids it seems to just be another day. Why is that? The hubby isn't much of a planner for things and since I do all the party planning and gifts the rest of the year. I did get a card from my mom though with some spending money maybe I will buy myself some new clothes with it. I have lost weight since we moved so I really need them.

On the moving front we are out of the other house completely. The things that were in that house are all here but not really put away at all. The only boxes I've really unpacked are the kids school stuff. We are having a few issues though. The phones aren't on yet and they were supposed to be on Monday so i haven't gotten a call from the doctor because he can't call. I will call tomorrow about the blood tests on Kenzie. Who knows if they are all back yet since they send most of the blood work to Seattle since Ketchikan doesn't have a full lab, I know it's weird. Hopefully they will be on today Wednesday, they are scheduled to do it but same with Monday and they just didn't show up. Now we will just have to see if they can get their truck up the hill to our house. I can't get my car up so we are doing some walking unless Kelly is home with his big truck. Also we have a water tank at this house as well of course but the pump is having problems and keeps shutting off, often when Kelly is trying to take a shower. His brother Josh has to sit under the house to turn it back on during showers and him or Izzak go under whenever we notice it is not running again. We are working on trying to figure out what is wrong hopefully tomorrow or we will be putting in a new pump, less hasle. The house otherwise is nice and much bigger then the last actually probably the biggest we have lived in so far which is great. The kids love it here and Izzak is off in the woods every chance he gets! We have tons of snow and places for the kids to sled so they are doing a lot of that as well. Also the other two are back in school which helps as well. Honestly Joshua was driving me insane over the last two weeks. I'm not sure what is going on but his attitude is horrendous! I've been embarressed on more then one occasion lately and that is not normal he can be a handful but normally he is pretty respectful of others and that is just not so lately. Kenzie seems to be a little better still not up to normal energy and I can hear her in her sleep she is talking way more then ussual and for her that is usually a sign she is not feeling great or sleeping well. Madison has the cold Kelly and I were dealing with during the move and told me today "I don't like this cold Mommy, how do I get rid of it?" I told her "you just have to wait for it to go away and rest until then" so now she is telling everyone that she has a cold but there is nothing to do for it so she just has to wait, but she doesn't like to rest. She is a silly kid red nose and all. She is walking around the house with a roll of toilet paper to wipe her nose! Kelly and I seem to be over the worst parts of our colds though so that is great. Now we just need to get the rest of our stuff out of the various storage locations we have things at!

Happy Birthday. What a shame you are suffering from colds just when you need your energy. Why is it that things always go wrong when you move house~ hope you get things sorted soon.

Happy Birthday Terr, I hope you get the few problems in the new house sorted and that everyone is back to full health soon. The house and woods sound like a lovely place to live.

Birthday Greetings Terri, - hope you get the chance to enjoy the day.

Does sound a great location and now that you are in - the minor details can all be worked out, including the telephone connection.

Blood tests can take some days, and especially if they have to be sent for analysis outwith - I'm sure the Doctor will contact you if he needs further consultation.

This bug appears to be hitting everyone and does make you feel weakened for weeks. Poor Maddie, still she is prepared with the roll..

Enjoy your new home.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY WOO...TO YOU!!
I can relate to the birthday thing...it's the same at our house...and I have much the same attitude about it...no point in getting upset!?
I hope things work out at the new house...
I wish we lived somewhere that the kids could slide in the snow...they spend most of their time in the house here...that's one thing I miss from our previous home...a HUGE hill that the kids were constantly sliding down....
anyway hope you enjoy your day!
take care Heather

Happy Birthday. Glad you are feeling better, hope the others follow soon. It sounds like your new house is great and having places to sled for the kids is a bonus, as well as the woods. I hope you had a good birthday. I did today, what I will be doing on my birthday in March, except I won't be getting new glasses then.

Pamela said...

Hey birthday girl!!! It's not fun to get older, but you just kind of start ignoring them after awhile.

Hope you get a hot shower that doesn't quit for your birthday!!!!

Emma in Canada said...

Happy birthday! Hope it was a great one.

I think it might be the age with Joshua. I remember taking a parenting course and they did say that some ages are just more difficult than others, and 11 was one of them. I have had a devil of a time with Liam this year. The only other time he was so difficult was 6, which is also supposed to be a bad year. (Actually, 5 1/2- 6 1/2). Anyway, it might not be true, but I really am looking forward to Liam's 12th!
