Gonna Party like it's my Birthday!

At 1:24 am, I officially blessed this world with my presence 29 years ago. The doctors even said I was a beautiful blessing. Well I lied about the second part of course. LoL My mother wanted to name me Patricia Opal Ryan. Imagine a little red head child born on St. Patricks Day with that name. I am so grateful my great grandma Seagraves told me to name me Susan after my mom and Marie after my grandma Vera. Thank you for that blessing great grandma may your rest in peace.

Today was my day. I was supposed to do and make whatever I wanted. However since my diet restricts my strongest cravings of comfort food (haystacks (aka fritos, ground beef, beans, cheese, lettuce, tomato & sour cream), pizza, lasagna & pasta sala) I had to weigh my other options. I decided darn it I am going to eat something I enjoy. I made a big pot of menudo. Then looking in the fridge staring back at me was half a burrito of chicken. I popped that baby in the microwave and started drooling. Then I heard a pop. What the hell I wondered as I went to the microwave. Apparently Ro & I's first microwave ever decided to bite the dust as the burrito was still freezing after 3 minutes cooking. So I called Ro and he brought home a new one. LoL

I got a couple of cards in the mail for my birthday and these made me smile big time. Then all my wonderful friends on facebook and myspace left me comments and everyone made me smile. I actually feel like people really do notice me and I do make a difference and that is huge to me. I feel like my mom did do a beautiful thing for the world when she gave me life. Thank you mom for that.

Speaking of her, I miss her a lot today. She used to call me every year and sing happy birthday to me on the phone at the exact moment I was born. I used to think this was a pain in the rear and now I would give anything to hear her voice just one more time. I miss her advice but today is about me. About celebrating my life.

I did not get any major gifts this year. My Ro blessed me with this wonderful laptop so I did not expect anything more. Then he softmodded our wii so I can make backups of my games so the kids dont destroy the originals. He is taking Friday off so he says so we can celebrate properly. I am so glad we have celebrated all these birthdays togeth as a couple and now as a family with my beautiful children. They are the sweetest. They hug me and act as my birthday is still a child's day. Roana gave me a penny and told me mom treat yourself to whatever you want. Then she is begging me in Target to buy me something. Thinking of it gives me tears. Then Lil Ro has been giving me besitos all night long. I am blessed in many ways. I just have to focus on them
