28.

I turn 28 today and I go back to work on my birthday after 6 glorious days off enjoying the sand and surf in Myrtle Beach. It's a tough day. I don't even hate my job, but I was so depressed to leave the ocean. I woke up cranky this morning. I should have taken the day off. Going to work on your birthday after a vacation should be illegal.
I guess there are two types of people - those who feel refreshed and ready to get back to the grind (Garth falls into this category) and those who are depressed vacation is over (me). I know once I get back into the grind I will feel refreshed, but right now I'm just a little sad it's all over. And maybe a little sad I'm turning one year older.
It's been an eventful year at 27. I had my first flat tire. Celebrated 3 years of marriage. Had eye surgery. Bought my first house. Lost ten pounds. Spent a week on the beach with some of my favorite people in the world. Bought a new car. Started a new life in a new city. Met new friends. Learned how to take care of a house.
All in all, it was a pretty awesome year. I'm looking forward to what this year will bring!

Happy Birthday! It's definitely the pits working on your birthday, especially when its a Monday. Throw in coming back from vacation and I would be seriously depressed. That is how my birthday is shaping up to be this year and I'm already not looking forward to it. Hope your day gets better and you have the chance to really celebrate with Garth!

Happy Birthday :)

I am definitely like you when it comes to a vacation, and the thought of heading back to work the day after returning from any trip always makes me sad. My husband is a lot like Garth, and he is all refreshed.

Hope you had a great trip and got to relax though.

Happy birthday! I'm sorry you had to spend it at work, especially after a sweet vacation. That should be illegal!
