Last week I had a big birthday. And I have to say I am very optimistic about 27. I have had a lot of things going on lately that have just had me in a shitty mood. Like everything else, I decided to leave all the negative behind with 26. Since I broke my ankle I have been pretty limited on the things that I could do and the places I could go and that was really getting me down. Well the day before my birthday I found out that I needed to be on crutches for two more weeks. I immediately wanted to burst into tears. At that point I did some searching and praying to the geriatric gods that I could find a knee scooter to rent. Well I got lucky and found a place that was willing to rent me a brand new one. Apparently scooters are a hot item in AZ. So I got my scooter and I've been flying down the halls at work like I'm a little kid on a razor scooter. On my birthday Rob took me out to dinner and we really enjoyed ourselves. My mother was out of town so I got to celebrate with her this past weekend at brunch. The day after my birthday I had a major anxiety attack. I had just gotten home from work and fed martini and all of a sudden she starts freaking out....low and behold she was stung by a scorpion. Picture me on crutches, crying and freaking out like a nut job. Luckily my sister lives close and was able to come get us to take her to the hospital. It was so scary because she immediately went limp and was breathing crazy heavy. My heart just sunk in my chest and I felt horrible that she was in that much pain. At the animal hospital they gave her two shots and told me she just needed to rest. She was back to normal in about two days. Thank God. I have to say I've had a super stressful month and my body can show from it. I've lost about 10 pds. I guess breaking a ankle has been the best thing for me to get into bikini shape.
