Birthday from hell

Today is my birthday. Ughhh! I dont get excited about getting older.....at all. And on top of that....Even year birthdays are always hell for me....and odd years are fun. Unfortunately for me...this year I'm turning 24. Heres a lil recap

16th birthday- High school sweetheart broke up with me...."sweet" sixteen...YEAH RIGHT! Dont worry..I was also sick and got in a car wreck that day as well

18th birthday- Wake up...faint in the shower...spend the day in the hospital. Nothing like looking at your hospital bracelet and seeing DOB=Todays date. No fun

20th- eehh....not great, not horrible

22nd- SPent the day crying in my room because I had been locked in their for 3 days studying organic chemistry. I had to listen to my boyfriend (now husband) pitch online since I couldnt be there. We had to mail our birthday gifts (his is 4 days before mine)...and we hadn't seen each other in 5 weeks. By the end of the night I was bawling because I never even got a piece of birthday cake...


so here we are...24th birthday. I'm in the middle of moving down 3 flights of stairs and up 3 flights of stairs. How stupid could I be? Agreeing to move to the third floor again...booooooo! Not to mention pulling the 15 hour days again. Nothing like being up since 4:45 and then continuining to be on my feet until 10:30 moving furniture up and down stairs. Oh..what a glamorous b day!

On a happy note. I am officially registered for the 2009 Disney FULL marathon....and the 2008 Cleveland Half Marathon MAY 18! This will be the first time I've been home since I moved to Georgia and got married last May. Definitely the longest time I've ever been away from home. I'm having a few friends and a couple family members also participate in this race. I'm super pumped...but will have to take a test early and a personal day for clinical. EEK...my third...we only get 4 (all 3 were due to races...yikes). Oh well....you gotta live life...fooooo shoooooo!

Sorry I'm a little MIA! Moving...school..health (been fainting in the OR...going through lots of medical testing) ..clinical...life...basically sucks! Sorry for the downnerr...I think my endorphins finally wore off.....another Boo! Holla!

Here's to an awesome 25th. I have the same experiences with wedding aniversarys, we're coming up 10 years and so far we've managed to only get two right, we're actually thinking of changing the date to see if that helps!

I just moved into a 3rd floor apartment. No elevator, just curving stairs. Oh, and my boyfriend decided I could help move the sectional up no problem. Result: crying girlfriend with no skin left on her hands from scraping them against every wall/railing.

Hope you had a good birthday. Hope that the fainting tapers off, and nothing too critical.

Hey, I'm a Cleveland girl, too! I was thinking about trying the Cleveland half this year but will postpone to hopefully 2009. The spinning guitar medal looks really cool.

Happy B-day!
