Yesterday was my birthday. I just turned 31. I wish my life was simpler!

I had a wonderful birthday aside from recieving the most hurtful email I have ever gotten.

My work got me this nice birthday cookie! It was pretty cool. Eric took me out to dinner (without the baby) last Saturday. We went to the Melting Pot. I had a wonderful time.

Susie got me some lovely brown sheets for our bed, and 2 nice big soft pillows!

And perfectly timed was the set of dishes from my AWESOME best friend.

My wonderful nephews (Sean and Seth) got me one of my FAVEORITE Disney movies of all time... The Lion King (on bluray and dvd). I am so excited that I will get to start sharing that with Susie.

My sister picked me out some nice shoes for work.

Aside from some of the stuff that happened, I couldnt have asked for a better bday night.

Dessert Fail

So last week we had an office potluck. I made these chocolate cherry brownies. I got the recipe off Betty Crockers website.

It was brownie mix, apple sauce, egg, coke. The topping was confectioners sugar, cherry coke, butter, and unsweetened cocoa powder. I added the marashino cherries on top.

It tasted like a....

Chocolate brownie with chocolate frosting. You couldnt taste the cherry at all. What a disappointment!

I am throwing that recipe away.

Week Day

4:30am wake up, make bottles, get ready for work, feed Susie, get her back to sleep
6:00am make my lunch, walk dogs
6:30am out the door
7:00am at work
4:00pm done with work
4:30pm pick up susie
5:00pm walk dogs, fix dinner, feed Susie
I then spend the next 3 hours getting her to take a small nap (which she wants to do on me or in my arms) and then we spend some time playing or talking or I should say I entertain her.
8:00pm we take a shower and I get her ready for bed (and get her clothes out for hte next day)
8:45pm she eats and then I have to get her to sleep
9:30pm I get her stuff ready for the next day plus take care of some household chores
10:30pm bedtime for me

This is all based on her having a normal day. But with her there are plenty of not normal days! I am trying to figure out when I can work out. Once she doesnt need the 5am feeding then I will be going into work early to run, but until then...
