Happy 31 to ME!!
Although, today has sadly been an icky day and hasn’t felt at all like my birthday 😦 I had a rough bad night of no sleep so felt icky and had a headache all day I couldn’t shake so stayed at home to work from here to try to get better. Nice way to turn the good ol’ 31 – sick in bed!
I also was very emotional today. And we can put it down to no sleep and over-tired, as well as probably hormones, but I was sad and have been sad today because I was supposed to be in London celebrating today with my parents – and I was looking forward to it and they were looking forward to it – and as a result I never planned anything or thought about it really, and now the day is here. So it was a little sad.
Sad and icky – great!!
I thought maybe just maybe I would get the greencard today as a nice birthday gift but no, that would be too lucky!
So it’s been a little “meh” today which again is sad as it really is my birthday – would have loved a day off from everything but being sick and not feeling good is not a day off annoyingly and had clients calling me and emails to respond to…so hmmmmm….will have to reward myself with a birthday day off soon then!
Stuart sadly (ah the famous word for today – and actually a famous word I use often!!) had to work today and until late, but he gave me his cute birthday card before he left home this morning – which was beautiful 🙂
And made me emotional!!
My parents said we can always celebrate my birthday together on another date…
“Like on June 2nd” my dad said…inside joke so will explain…
Ok, funny story – years ago, I think the year before I started graduate school, so must have been in 2004, on June 2nd, I was in NYC staying with my friend off and on while I looked for an apartment and had audition interviews and such so I was staying with her when I would drive up from MD, where I lived at the time. And we spent my birthday together. And my phone rings. So I pick it up and its my dad on the phone and he says:
And I say, “What?” And start laughing.
“Happy Birthday my darling. I am so sorry that I forgot but I just remembered and woke up early to tell you Happy Birthday and that we are so sorry we can’t be there with you to celebrate” my dad says with a sleepy voice, as its something like 4am in Greece, where he is calling from.
“Daddy, it’s not my birthday. It’s June 2nd. My birthday is May 2nd. And you did spend it with me in NYC. You and mummy came over for it” I say through half laughing.
I thought he had been joking but turns out he actually was not!!
To this day we joke about that because we have no clue what happened!! And it never happened again – that one moment of, (kind of scary if you think about it), crazy! It was so weird! It was like half an hour of back and forth convincing my tired dad that it was a month late and that I had seen him on my birthday! If you ask me, I think he woke with a start from some dream that had something to do with my birthday and must have believed it and called…
I guess I can celebrate my birthday again on June 2nd 🙂 Which is now the day after Stuart’s birthday! And maybe it won’t be so icky then!
June 2nd will always be my “second birthday” thanks to my dad’s mishap 🙂
