My Birthday

My birthday is tomorrow and for some reason I feel the need to skip it.

My parents have been here this week from Tennessee. They had my oldest son, Tristan with them for two weeks. I don’t think Tristan is happy to be home and it’s bumming me out.

However, I’m having a good time with my mom and we’ve been working on my kitchen. It looks awesome! I love it!

My mom and me working on my kitchen ❤️
Updates made to my kitchen… we aren’t done yet!

I haven’t spent any time with my dad really at all. My dad spends every moment with my son and I’m not sure that my dad likes it here in New Jersey too much. I get the feeling he hates visiting me.

I guess for my birthday, I feel fortunate that I got to spent quality time with my mom. I think we both needed that! But I should only speak for myself. My dad chose to spend his time solely with Tristan.

I’ve always been so glad that my dad and Tristan are close but I do miss having time with my dad. I miss that.

Oh well.

My birthday is tomorrow. I’ll be 40! This has caused me to think pretty deep this last month. I am really happy about some things and really mad about others.

Because of this, I wish I could skip my birthday dinner this year. I have always loved my birthday but for the last 3 years… now 4 I hate them!


PS. I’ll update you when my mom and I get the finish product done!

I’m really so thankful and beyond grateful for this experience and time with her! 💗

  1. Happy birthday young lady! I remember when I was 40… 🤦‍♂️

    I like your coffee decor!


    1. Why thank you very much! I feel thankful to make it to 40. Last year at this time I was sure I was going to die.
      I’ve enjoyed decorating and settling in to our home. Doing the kitchen with my mom has helped give me the inspiration I needed to do other areas in our house!


  2. Happy Birthday Skelly, I pray you will have a blessed and wonderful day! And don’t give up on getting close with your Dad, men can be strange creatures at times and remember, with God, all things are indeed possible (prayer is your secret weapon).


    1. I think sometimes I get hurt by him more easily because we were very closest when I was growing up. His actions and words seems to sting worse than anyone else’s. We did get a tiny bit of time together, not much but I guess I have to take what I can get. Thank you for the birthday wishes. I had a good day in the rainy weather! My favorite. Many blessings to you.


  3. HAPPY (belated) BIRTHDAY!! 🎉🎉🎉

    I’m sorry there are some ups and downs with things right now, but I really hope you had a good day nonetheless. Good luck with doing the kitchen too, sounds like a good distraction when things get frustrating.

    1. I did have a good day! And thank you so much for the Birthday love! I needed to the extra push to get my home in order or much like I needed some direction in all the chaos and my mom did give me that! Very thankful even in the stress.
