Made It!

I am officially one year closer to kicking the bucket.

And remember all those jokes that I made on Friday about my impending need for a motorized scooter to shuttle me around now that I’m getting all old and moldy?

Well, I woke up yesterday (which was, incidentally, my actual birthday) having thrown my back out in my sleep.

Let me repeat that. I threw my back out. While I was sleeping.  In my bed.

That’s right- you may not have believed me before, but I fear I will actually be shuffling around in my slippers and housecoat before the year is done.

I guess that just means that I have to dance a little bit harder while I still can.

And make it to more Cubs games.

Done and done.

Not many food pictures this weekend (but there was a hotdog and some Old Style as promised).

Last night I dined with my family at one of my favorite restaurants, Nacional 27.  It has become a tradition to go there on my birthday (except for last year when we realized that they were closed on Sundays) and it never disappoints.

We shared a few tapas for the table, including shrimp+scallop tiny tacos and pumpkin+goat cheese croquetas, and then ordered entrees.

Alas, I have no photos of the meal.  The lighting was incredibly dim and I knew my point and shoot would lose that battle every time.  My sister even wondered aloud why I wasn’t taking any pictures of my food (“you know you’re a food blogger when…”), but sometimes my camera needs a break.

It was still pretty tired from the shenanigans:

And sporting a mid-1990’s hairstyle.

Thanks to everyone who left birthday wishes!  The weekend was full of friends, baseball, sunshine and good food and I couldn’t think of anything else I need!

    • Thank you, dear. And you can come over for tea and a stick of Trident that I’ll find in the bottom of my purse any time.

  1. Hahahahaha how do you throw out your back in your sleep? What the hell were you dreaming about?
    In all seriousness though, those motorized scooters are dangerous. I got run over by one once. It wasn’t a good time.
    Glad you had a good birthday weekend though. You deserve it. 🙂

  2. Haha I’m curious as to how one throws their back out in their sleep. Don’t worry though, my knees creek every time I sit or stand, so i’ll be right there with you in my walker after knee replacement surgery.

  3. I threw my back out this morning bending over to pick up a bag. I’m waiting on my doctor to get me a reference to the back doctor since I don’t have one down here in Okie-land.

    How did you do that in your sleep?!?! LOL!
