Turning 28

My birthday started out as any other Friday. Usually Jordan is wide awake at 8:00 in the morning but for some reason, he ALWAYS wants to sleep in on Fridays. So, as usual, I have to wake him up and get his little buns going. Usually I like for him to be awake at 7:45 so that he has some time to wake up and get his brain rolling. Unfortunately, this never happens on Fridays; we literally hit the ground running. Breakfast, milk, clothes, diapers, backpack-wait...did I write a check for the tuition? Jordan only goes to school one day a week-on Fridays. Out the door by 8:45, at school by's a task every Friday.

Once I dropped Jordan off at school I had to go by the dentist office. I have to get a root canal...yuck. Actually, the root canal isn't the yucky part. The yucky part is the amount of money that we will have to pay out of pocket AFTER insurance. Who knew that dental work was so expensive? Up until now, I had only had a cavity. Nothing major. How does one go from paying for a cavity (which insurance usually covered) to paying for a root canal? I visit the dentist regularly? Was there no warning that this was going to happen? OK, enough of my soapbox. From the dentist I got a car wash-can't drive around in a dirty car on your birthday! It must have been my lucky day because the owner of the car wash gave me a free car wash because it was my birthday. YES! From the car wash I had to go to the eye doctor-a new eye doctor. Apparently my old eye doctor doesn't accept my vision insurance anymore. Good grief-me and "insurance" were in an argument's obvious that I was losing. I WAS losing until I got to the new eye doctor and the receptionist told me that my contacts would be FREE! Best.Words. EVER. And, to top it all off, the insurance company was going to cover the full price of a new pair of COACH eyeglasses (all who know me, know how much this means to me-not the glasses, but the fact that they are COACH). It was my lucky I thought.

This entry is long and I am babbling on but I haven't gotten to the very best part yet. When my husband came home, he came bearing gifts!
Beautiful roses

AND...thanks to Ashish, my in-laws, and parents...I'm a proud new owner of a NIKON D3100. Here are some of the pictures taken with my new camera.

Surrounded by family and close friends, I celebrated my 28th birthday. God is good, all the time, every time, right on time.

I haven't scheduled it yet. I'm procrastinating. LOL! Will you still be my friend if I don't have any teeth? LOL!

Hey Danielle, I just happened upon your blog! I didn't know you had one! It is good way to vent, huh. I have one, but sometimes I get writers block, especially if I didn't have a session that week. Ah well, I'll keep trying, but I do love your openness, but that is you. Love ya girl!
