    A Crappy Birthday

    So my birthday started out with a lost wallet, which made everything else get pushed back for several hours. But that wasn't the crappy part.

    No, the crappy part was the time before we went to Lamberts.

    My mother had to take a stool sample to her doctor's office, ad she forgot it in her house. So we had to go back, and get it for her. Turning the car around to pick up a load of forgotten crap? Crappy enough, right?

    No, we had to deliver it too.

    Of course, my mother is MUCH slower than everyone else in the car so we had to essentially draw straws over who had to deliver it into the office. I lost, so I had to run in a sack of poop to the lab.

    Wandering in, I had to wait in line, and when I got fed up with waiting, I set it on an empty desk, and told them that the poop Currier had arrived with their poop delivery and walked off.

    Then they called me back, and asked me what time the waste was deposited into the containers inside the bag. I told them that it wasn't my crap, and I had no idea, but I wasn't walking outside again and running back in like some crazed messenger pigeon so I could deliver their precious information. So I asked for their phone number and forced my mother to call them from the car while I drove us to the other place that she needed to go (on my special day, I am forced to run errands). *rolls eyes*

    Onward I drove to the med supply place to exchange her CPAP, and after signing her paperwork for her, I was finally able to get us down to Lamberts for my birthday dinner.

    I wasn't able to go visit the few friends I had wanted to because everything was so late, but I went home full, and was able to drop by the potluck at The Radish (late), before I finally went home with friends (who had shown up at The Radish while we were there), and had a good time visiting and eating junk food until the wee hours of the morning.

    All in all, it was a pretty decent birthday, and I was surprisingly happy for most of the day, despite the excessive delays.

    A crappy day to be sure, but only in prevailing theme *chuckle*

    Happy birthday anyway!

    I was up there for mine, last weekend, but the weekend ended up so busy that I didn't really have a chance to do much that wasn't with family.

    I hope to be in town soon, though. Not positive, but who knows. And school lets out the 18th of June, so I'm hoping to be able to find a place up there ASAP after that.

    Oh wow, moving down here that soon? Huzzah!

    If you need any help finding a rental, let me know. I have the inside scoop. :D

    Happy belated birthday! Sorry about having to deal with all that crap, litterally.
    Glad it ended well though!
