I'm so sorry to hear you had such a rough year with your health, but I'm still happy to see your face! ::hughug::

And... Happy Birthday to us! Our birthday is on the same day, yeah! Now you're 50 and I'm 25! Remember when you first met me, I was just a 13-year-old kid? ^_^

Just a note -- Happy Birthday late. I turned 50 in December, too! Always happy to see someone my age! P.S. I am commenting from my daughter's journal, so sakura_ame is NOT 50!!

wow, what an eventful year. and i'm not even being sarcastic! i'm thinking 2010 will look sorta like that for me. 2009 wasn't too bad for hospitalizations for a change. though the er mid-december sucked. XP

glad the cystoscopy was ok, but did they give you an idea about why the UTI prob is so persistent? and i hope the l-t disability comes through for you soon. i think realizing i couldn't go on as i was and finally having to apply for disability was the hardest thing i've ever had to do. no, wait. trying to live with 2 teenagers and virtually no income for the 6 years prior to that might have sucked just a tad more. glad we made it thru all that semi-sane. heheh ^^

congrats on the 27th anniversary. that's a big deal. you obviously got a real keeper and i'm happy for you both. as for the birthday, i didn't know or i would've congratulated you sooner. m(_ _)m but, welcome to the 2nd half-century!!!! it's not so bad on this side. i'd actually wondered if the 59 was your birth year based on comments etc. so i'm not the only child of the 50's hanging around! i hope you had a wonderful b-day and holiday season and that this year will be a healthy and happy year for you. take care! <3

Wow! What a year, huh? I hope this coming year is happy and healthful! Were you at the Missouri? We probably saw each other (since there were so little of us.) ^^

You look great and your dogs are beautiful. ^_^

Oh God, I'm so bad in remembering birthdays...
I so hope you enjoyed it. My belated wishes are going out to you and even though they're late they're meant just a good and they're full of positive things for you. That much you gotta believe me! *hugz*

By the way: That's a wonderful picture!

Wow, what a year you've had. When you break it down like that you can really see how every month brings trials and tribulations but you seem to have come out on top at the end of the year. Happy belated birthday! You don't look 50 at all.
Your doggies are adorable ^^ Happy new year!!!!
