My birthday was this week… was a non-event really. I picked up Chinese on the way home so I wouldn’t have to cook.
They had a cake at work for the July birthdays which was nice and we all got a card. My sister phoned, twice, to say Happy Birthday. And Anne and Jill sent mom and I two huge baskets – one of fruit and one of chocolate.
Mom was a bit upset that she couldn’t bake me a cake but we usually never ate it all anyway. Now we have about 50 lbs of fruit to eat and all that chocolate so won’t miss the cake at all!
I worked on Sunday, and have to work on Saturday too, and on Sunday mom wants to go see The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
Next year… I think turning 50 will deserve a trip. I’ll save up all my vacation time and take mom to the UK to visit Anne & Jill… and I may give them some warning.
