bittersweet birthday

Happy birthday to me. Happy birthday to me. Happy birthday, dear Mom2Amara. Happy birthday to me!
So no birthday cake today (um, trust me, that's not the bittersweet part) -- I'm starting my day off like I did yesterday: at Leonard's for a malasada.

Who needs paczki (which btw, I really don't like) when you can have a malasada! I cannot resist fried dough with powdered sugar (or my personal fave, cinnamon) on top! I don't have a picture of them though because as soon as Amara and I got our order, I inhaled them without chewing. Yeah, I've probably gained 10 pounds on vacation...

We also did our swim with the dolphins yesterday and once I get back to the mainland, I'll scan the picture because honestly, it's one of the cutest of Bean! She's actually kissing a dolphin!

We spent the rest of the afternoon very lazy on the beach. No plans. No worries.
And that's what I have planned for my birthday. Oh that and a meeting at the Honolulu Advertiser that I set up for work. (Yes, I am working on my birthday while on vacation). That could be part of my bittersweet birthday.

But I think it has more to do with the fact that we're leaving paradise tonight after dinner. We rarely get to visit with Aunt2Amara because it's just too expensive for either of us to fly to see each other. And we miss her! Not to mention I really really really don't want to go back to work Monday. Isn't there some way for me to not work but continue supporting Amara?!?!
there won't be a today's good and bad today because it's my birthday and everything's going to be simply fabulous!


  1. Happy Birthday!! I'm glad you are celebrating it somewhere sunny although it is 55 degrees here and sunny believe it or not! Also, thanks for the idea for the favicon, I got the idea from your blog! Thanks and again Happy, Happy.

  2. You swam with the dolphins??!!! How much fun is THAT!!!? ... I got to swim in baby poop today - does that count? :)
