Cuz it’s MY BIRTHDAY BITCHES!

This week I celebrated my 37th birthday.  On my special day I didn’t have to work (upon orders from my boss) and neither did my boyfriend.  So he and I laid around my apartment all day eating, playing video games and enjoying each other’s company.  Exactly what I wanted to do! 

I’m still reeling from last year’s birthday debacle where I was forced to go to dinner with 3 persons – only one of whom I’m still friends with.  That incident started a year-long war between one of the dinner attendees and myself.  As a result of that I wanted a quiet day alone this year.

My kids called me to wish me a happy birthday and tell me how excited they were for my upcoming visit.  My mom and step dad had sent me a card and my step dad sent me an email wishing me well, my step-sister and her daughter called, and that was it – which was just fine for me.   I was supposed to go visit my brother’s bar to watch the election results but after eating an entire loaf of my lovely magical banana bread I was in a serious weed coma and didn’t want to do anything.

The next day I got belated birthday wishes from a couple of friends and that evening one of my sisters called.  I answered the phone expecting a belated birthday wish and instead was bombarded immediately with my sister’s urgent need to vent.  No mention was made of my special day.  Instead I was treated to a circuitous web of half-truths and lies explaining my sister’s anger about a situation she was involved in.  After hearing her version of the story I kind of chuckled at her and pointed out the positive aspects of the situation – explaining that if it were me I would actually be HAPPY about the resolution of the situation (which she completely overlooked or lied about).

After about 15 minutes of asking specific questions and getting shadowy answers my sister seemed to pick up on the fact that I wasn’t particularly interested in the conversation and abruptly got off the phone.  After hanging up I sat there in my bed, chuckled and shook my head.  Some people are so self-absorbed and insensitive – but guess what…I don’t really care.  I had a great birthday and no one can take that away from me!

About Ms Fihaki

Thanks so much for checking out my blog! I’m supposed to write about me – who I am as a person and I really don’t see the sense in that considering that when you read my posts you will learn more about me as a person than you would from any 500 word statement I could make. I will however play by the rules – just this once. I’m 36 years young. I consider myself a strong independant and beautiful woman (hey! I wrote about that! Check it out!). I’m single and love it. Just over a year ago I made some serious lifestyle changes which include eliminating alcohol from my diet, being more physically active, eating healthier and daily working on my spirituality. One of the things which has happened as a result of these lifestyle changes is that I’ve gained a level of clarity I never knew was possible. With this clarity comes the realization that my words affect the lives of those around me. I’ve always been much better at writing than at speaking. If I can affect people the way I do from speaking, just imagine the effect I can have with the written word! I had been blogging about my secret life doing sensual massage – but I wasn’t getting a lot of traffic or interraction from that blog. Upon the suggestion of several friends I decided to start this – my public blog. My hope is that this will allow my readers to interact with me, a real live human being and that together we can create a ripple effect of positivity throughout the universe! (yea I dream big – it’s a must!) Anywho – I sincerely hope you enjoy the things I have to say and interractions are welcome and encouraged! Be Well!
