Birthday Month is Ending and Sickness Galore

Today is my brothers birthday, which means I don't have to cook dinner cause we get to go out to eat where ever my brother wants, so we are going to Sourdough Mining Company. Great food and Korn Fritters!!!! This is also the last of the birthdays we get to celebrate this month. The next birthday we get to go out for is Richards and that's in October.  I love July for the reason that we get to go to 3 places we don't always get to go eat at. It's nice, the only drawback is that moms birthday and mine are a week apart so I have a hard time choosing where to go and can't decide till after mom cause a lot of the time she has the same idea of a place to go eat as I do. Like this year Months ago I thought of going to the Double Musky for my birthday dinner didn't tell anyone besides Richard that it was an idea and that's where mom wanted to go for hers. On the bright side I still got to eat there and got to choose someplace else equally good for mine.

Now I bet you are wondering why I mentioned I don't have to cook dinner, well it's because it's to freaking hot in general so cooking in the kitchen just makes our place that much hotter. Yes it's still getting hot here, this summer has been CRAZY HOT. We got maybe a week of cooler temps and they jumped back up into the upper 70's. We have to have 2 fans going in our bedroom just so we can sleep at night it's that hot in our place. We have all our windows wide open but no breeze so it really doesn't do any good. This has been the warmest summer in a very long time. I miss the cooler ones. The ones where I could leave my hair down and be fine. I know mom isn't going to like what I'm about to say so sorry in advance mom, But all this heat is making me want winter to show up sooner rather then later. I have always stated I rather be cold then hot. I do good in cold weather besides the constant colds.

Speaking of constant colds this summer has had it out for me with a vengeance: June I got a rather nasty cold that ended up giving me an ear infection got meds for it and got over it besides my left ear not completely unplugging. Tried to get it to unplug on my own with no luck so went to the walk in clinic was told I had wax on my eardrum and that they could get it off with flushing it out with water I told them no because I have a hole in that eardrum was put on more meds to see if it would work, it did to a point but if I stopped taking it my ear would plug up. Made an appointment with my ENT Doc for the Tuesday that just passed  but before I got to see him I managed to get some kind of infection in my throat, so back to the walk in clinic aka Doc in the box to get treated for that, I'm almost done with the antibiotics for that and was told by my ENT doc to go ahead and keep using the nasal spray I was using before that was working but would stop working if I stopped taking it and to be on it for 2 months straight. If I'm not better in two months to come see him again. On top of all this is my seasonal allergies YUP this summer has had it in for me from the beginning.

I'm 30!

This past Thursday I turned 30 and had a blast doing so. I had a family dinner at Lone Star Steakhouse, we all ordered the ribs and cheese cake afterwards. I do believe this is the first time all of my close family ordered the same meals with just slight variations. Earlier that day I got a call from my brother to let me know my birthday gift was in my email and that no it wasn't just an e card. He gave me a computer game that he had me try out the month before and that I liked playing. I was so shocked I couldn't believe it, it's the first time in years I have actually gotten a gift from him. I have played the game a lot since getting it too.

Friday was my party and the pool hall and I had a nice small gathering of 4 people show up besides Richard and I and the owner of the pool hall Chris. Chris actually surprised me and had bought me a cake for the party. He was going to get one that was personalized but he ran out of time to get it ordered so it would be ready so he just picked out a cake that looked good. It was really very sweet of him and totally unexpected.

Sunday Richard and I went out to the valley to hang out with our friends Stephanie and Jason. Before we hung out with them we went to his parents place and played with the boston terrier puppies, then went up to our friend Sarahs place to say hi and wish her son a happy birthday. Then we got together with Stephanie and Jason at a local park out there, then walked to Wendy's for lunch then they took us on a tour of their house that is being built. We had a great time visiting.

That pretty much sums up my Birthday weekend.

Birthday Party Rant

Thursday is my birthday, so I figured I would have a get together on Friday with friends. So last weekend I made an event page on Facebook and sent out invites hoping people would be into hanging out with me and help me celebrate turning 30. The only people to confirm they are going is my husband and the owner of the place I'm having the get together at. I have 2 maybe's one of them being my sister-in-law. So I put a status update inviting everyone I know to the party. Not a single person said they were going to come. I gave ample notice for people so they could try and make it. 

I will wait and see who actually shows up if anyone. I also have Richard inviting a couple of his coworkers whom I have met and like so hopefully they show up. But if no one does I'm going to be extremely hurt. I go out of my way to make it to events that friends invite me to and if I can't I let them know I'm not going to make it and that I did try to find a way to make it. But even if no one comes and it is just Richard and I, I will still have fun and not let them get to me too much.
