May is packed full of… fun?
Isn’t it funny how you spend most of the year looking forward to your birthday? I think it must be leftover excitement from childhood that you just can’t seem to shake. I still look forward to my birthday despite the fact that almost every birthday I have had since I was a small child has sucked. All of my ‘milestone’ birthdays went unnoticed and it seems that without fail something crappy will happen on my birthday. By the time the day arrives I am just trying not to shift the balance of the Universe so that the day will pass uneventfully.
Last year was one of the better if not the best birthday I have ever had. Veronique was hell-bent on getting me out of the house and out to celebrate. It seemed as though everything was falling into place since Amanda had a Girl Scout camp to attend that weekend. Emilee wasn’t feeling well but she was ok enough to be at home with my mother watching her. So, I went and got a new outfit and off we went… to the strip club :) We really had a blast. Lap dances and lots to drink… Pretty much any time I went out with Veronique I had a good time, even that time when we had to sit around for like a hour and half while we had the oil changed in our respective cars. We could just talk and talk… I am going to miss her this year. Anyway, then at about 2am there was a call saying they were taking Amanda to the emergency room. Her fever was at 105. We hauled ass from San Antonio to the hospital where they were taking her which was an hour and a half drive. By the time I got there, she was pretty much fine but really tired. You should have seen the looks on the Girl Scout leaders’ faces. Me, arriving all sluttyed up and of questionable sobriety straight from the strip club.

May is a busy month for me. Since I am single and a mom, I have to arrange for the girls to be able to make/get me something for Mother’s Day. This was another thing Veronique was awesome about. She would often offer to watch the girls for me and then surprise me with a visit at work and a gift befitting whichever holiday was near. I have a porcelain dolphin on my desk from last Valentine’s Day (’04) and a candy apple candle at home from last Mother’s Day. This year I bought the girls some little flowerpots and things to make play-doh flowers; one for my mother and one for me. I gave them to my sister who will help the girls with them and then surprise me.
Emilee’s seventh birthday is also this month as is Triniti’s third. My sister graduates from high school and my brother is coming in from Hawaii for the first time in two years. There is a surprise birthday party for my grandmother who is turning eighty. Add all of that to Mother’s Day this weekend and my birthday next weekend and you have one hell of a month. You’d think I’d be more jazzed…

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
