One Eventful Birthday...

Thanks for all the blog love and birthday wishes. My birthday was...eventful. Let me tell you about it...

At school at 7:45, with kids starting to line up in the hallway outside my classroom my boyfriend called my classroom in excruciating abdominal pain, thinking his kidney stones had returned. Eek! Since he's not from the Seattle area, he has no family out here, thus no one to take him to the hospital - sans a cab...

This is where I come in; the wonderful, amazing girlfriend to the rescue, da da DA DA! My friend and fellow teacher next door to my classroom thankfully got my class started on morning work while I rushed him to the emergency room, hustled back to school, and had my kids starting on literacy at 8:45. It turned out to be kidney stones as he'd thought and a few X-Rays later, he was prescribed pain medication and discharged. So...I drove back to the hospital, picking him up while my class was in P.E. and headed back to school just in time for math! I was already physically and emotionally exhausted by 11:00 AM!

While my 27th didn't turn out exactly as planned, my boyfriend gave me a fabulous gift, flowers, and I ended up doing dinner + wine with my mom. We've rescheduled our *surprise* dinner together for another night when we can truly enjoy it together. So all in all, my birthday had a few unexpected hiccups, but inevitably was a great day!

Oh no! Well, at least your birthday gets to last a bit longer!

Ohh you're such a good girlfriend, he is so luck he has you! Who else would drive back and forth between school and the hospital on their birthday to help someone else.
Hopefully your class still had a chance to sing you happy birthday
