my birthday weekend was HOT- in the paris hilton way and especially… - there is a light
and it never goes out
my birthday weekend was HOT- in the paris hilton way and especially in the temperature way- i really don't like the heat and it seems huck doesn't handle it that well (i'm still getting used to all the panting, it makes me nervous), so we stayed in the house as much as possible which was good b/c i got my wedding crafts done (i leave for amsterdam in five days!!!)- but there was also lots of birthday fun to be had

on saturday i checked out the first day of kickball- urban plantains didn't play (thank god- i wouldn't have wanted to play in that heat), but i wanted to see some kickball in action- danielle and martin and i saw like two games- i'm a little nervous b/c i still don't think i'll know exactly what to do, but it's all in good fun, so it'll be fine i'm sure- i brought huck with me and he made friends with all the kids in the park (and almost got stolen by one i think)

then it was back to the house to get ready for the party- i really enjoy hostessing and had fun putting up balloons and streamers and setting everything up- the turnout was good (thanks to everyone who came and brought treats!) and my friends give awesome presents- and i learned how to use the grill and we had a fire in the chimenea and had s'mores and there was ice cream cake and birthday song singing and it was a really good time- and i didn't even get too lonely at the end of the night after everyone had gone and i thought how it would be nice to have a special someone to sit by the dying fire with- just a little lonely

sunday it continued to be unacceptably hot, so we had a lazy day- the dogs have basically just been lying on the floor for the past few days- huck got up a little to bark at some balloons and eat ice, but it's too hot to take them to the park- it was kinda nice though b/c huck was staying out of trouble and i got a lot done- we just hung out in the living room with the fans and i read my new vice photo book (it makes me really miss reading vice regularly- it seems silly to subscribe to it b/c in nyc you can get it for free on every corner- i should try to remember to check the website more often) and crafted- i had ice cream cake and pickles for lunch and later a pre-dinner cheese fest and then mom made five cheese penne and chocolate falling cakes and i got more presents and we went for an evening walk (when it was almost cool enough for the dogs) and  i talked to friends and family and it was all around a very nice birthday

so now i am 29- i'm hoping this year will be full of big positive changes for me- i think it will- i feel pretty good
