My birthday weekend

Well, I had an eventful but overall pleasant birthday weekend. Friday the kids and I spent most of our day with Greta and her kids, which we all enjoyed. By dinnertime Friday I was in excruciating pain and, to make the story short, it appears that I had a ruptured ovarian cyst. Thankfully, I had one Percocet left from my surgery, so I took that to survive the night so that I didn't have to spend my birthday night in the ER! By Saturday morning, the pain had abated and I was just worn out. Needless to say, I did not partake of my birthday dinner or cake until Saturday!

Fortunately, Saturday night we went back to having fun again! As a birthday present for me, RaDora came and kept the kids so that Bruce and I could go out (how great is that?! Thanks again, RaDora...we love you!). We went to Medieval Times (click on the link if you don't know what I'm talking about!) for dinner and a tournament complete with knights, horses, etc. It was SO MUCH FUN! Besides getting to go on a date, and going somewhere that I have wanted for several years to visit, the kids were thrilled to pieces that Miss RaDora came to play with everybody was happy! I had a fun and memorable thirtieth birthday celebration. Thanks, too, to everyone who left me a birthday comment -- it was a blast to get them throughout my day!

One of the joys of being thirty -- you can
wear the crown for your knight without
having to worry about your image. :-)
