OK...its time for a belated birthday something or other!

So I'm having another one of those days...you know the one where you simply wish you never got out of bed? I can't even put a finger on what exactly I'm bummed about. Its a list of things that are running around in my brain & won't quiet down:

-Its Wayne's (the ex idiot...sorry feeling a little negative & bitter today) birthday. Its hard to forget since its so close to mine.
-My uncle is still not doing very well. He can at times blink in response but is showing signs of another infection.
-My dad is taking everything with his brother so badly that I had to take him to the ER earlier this afternoon. He & my mom are still there.
-Princess Bear has been receiving only bread, cheese and carrots for lunch for a week...yes a WEEK because the lovely school didn't process her lunch paperwork properly. My poor kiddo just rolled with it & the teacher said nothing UGH!
-I'm so broke its not even funny. I'd be in flipping extasy over a mere $100.00 to get me through the month at this point.
-I turned *gasp* 35 on Sunday.

So I've decided that I'd like to learn some lessons from my wonderful readers and blog friends. If you have any friends that you think can offer me some sage advice please feel free to pass this blog along!
-Tell me about the more positive aspects of getting older!
-Tell me your best birthday story from the time you didn't have a 1 or 2 as the first number of you age!
-Give me some great ideas of relatively easy goals for the next year....I'm at a loss. I don't want anything too easy but my plate is a bit full for writing a novel this year!
-What book have you reread and liked so much better as an adult?
-What is the one thing you'd like to do before your next birthday?

Ok....these are mere suggestions...got something else? Throw it out there! I'm looking for things so I can have a fulfilling, happy, growth centered year! Seriously comment away! I'm going to randomly draw a comment number 2 weeks from today. That person will receive some wonderful aromatherapy lotion that I whip up especially for them!

Sarah, I'm sorry that things are so tough right now. I'll be 35 in December too, and I know it's hard getting older. However, it dawned on me a few weeks ago that the older I get, the more confident I am, and the less I care about what others think. I'm happier and more content with life in general.

That's something.
