I turn twenty-four years old today.
Considering the events of late, I consider that to be an accomplishment.
I purposefully didn't make any extravagant plans for today. It's going to be a pretty laid back day, consisting of watching the Patriot's game, grilling up some hamburgers and hot dogs, and just taking it all in. Both of my sisters and their spouses are coming up, too, so that should round out the day pretty nicely.
I'm not holding my breath for a new iPod to be among any of the presents I may receive, but I am hoping for the season one DVD set of "Fringe". I want to scour all of the scenes in every episode and every bonus feature to see if I can catch a glimpse of any of my pictures.
The highlight of the day (you'd think seeing all my family on my birthday would be the highlight) surely will be the ice cream cake. It's homemade, and it's almost better than sex.
Unfortunately, I think I'm going to have to postpone the New England area blogger meet-up that I had scheduled for next Sunday. When I had scheduled it originally, I thought that all of this allergy stuff was behind me. With it all flaring up again, I think it's best to put the meet-up on hold and get my health back on track. I still want to make it happen, and it will happen. Once I'm on the road to recovery, I'll take a look and see what is possible to do.
I hope you all had a good weekend, and thank you for all your well wishes on my previous post. It's encouraging to know that I've got such kick-ass people rooting for me, especially when things aren't looking so bright.
