Happy Birthday to Me

In the week since sharing my news that Squeaker and I are moving back to the States, the responses have been mixed. I’m not sure what I was expecting but maybe a little more of “Good for you for doing what you think is right”? Maybe it’s because I seem like a perennial country hopper, or maybe they wonder how I’m going to do it with a toddler. Who knows.

I also bought a ticket for the beginning of March. That way the worst of the polar vortex should be behind them up north and Squeaker and I can arrive and enjoy spring. Theoretically, at least.

However, in BIGGER news, Thursday is my birthday. Yes, 28 years ago, I was getting ready to make my entrance as a little squeaker and about to cause my parents some serious sleep deprivation.

Who know I'd have my own Squeaker one day?

Who know I’d have my own Squeaker one day?

Unlike past years, we don’t have anything crazy planned (crazy like watching a Breaking Bad marathon until we crash), but I’m thinking some sushi and delicious Chilean ice cream is in order. After all, I have to take advantage of it while it’s right in front of me.

It’s strange because I got more excited for Squeaker’s birthday and Christmas than I do for my birthday. I no longer expect large, extravagant gifts, wrapped in crinkly paper, but she does and I can live vicariously through her joy. Also, at 28 what do can you really look forward to anymore? 30? BAHAHAHAH. I already can vote, smoke, drink and rent a car–although preferably not all at once. So, yay?

This is going to be a short post today, because I’m off to enjoy some much deserved baby-free time :)
