Happy Birthday to me!

First of all, I'd like to say thanks for all my birthday messages! It was so fun to hear from everyone! I got phone calls from people I haven't talked to in a long time. It was nice...refreshing. For those of you who didn't was Thursday!!!!

It definitely didn't feel like my birthday. Maybe because this is the first year in my life I didn't get to have a birthday party. Maybe because I spent most of the day on the road to South Carolina. Maybe it's because there is a lot of other stuff going on in my life right now. Maybe it's because I overanalyzed it. It was just nice to be on the open road. Away from work...away from problems and just be temporarily disconnected from life.

I got to see old friends. It was very refreshing and very much needed right now. I got to sit through some really fun elements of camp. It really made me miss having a free summer to give up to work camp...but it was also great to be on the outside and just kind of enjoy it and soak it up.

On a different note, my dad has been in the hospital for over two weeks now. I actually cut my SC visit a couple days short to go visit him. He's not making a lot of progress and the doctors really aren't sure what's causing the problems. He's having lots of tests run, but there's no new news at the moment.
So I ask that those of you who know me, please continue to pray for me...pray for my dad and his health. Your prayers and support mean a whole lot to me right now.

(Yes...that's me in the picture above. I was pretty excited to be getting that cabbage patch premie!)
