Well today’s celebration started last Saturday. Lori took me to her hair stylist and we both got hair cuts. It was nice to be pampered and to have a long over due trim.
Since on Mondays and Wednesdays Lori is away from 6:30 am to 10:30 pm, we had a yummy dinner last night instead. She also texted her friends yesterday asking that they text me today to wish me a happy birthday, they did better. Deb called and invited me to lunch and Kathi called and invited me to dinner.
So today I applied for work and went grocery shopping but also drove out to Deb’s and we went and had lunch and visited for a couple of hours. Tonight Kathi picked me up and we went to dinner and again, visited for a couple of hours. It did help squelch the homesickness a bit. That and I received cards in the mail and a slew of emails, calls and texts throughout the day wishing me a happy birthday. The night ended with a birthday song from home. Sweet Day.
Not bad for Forty-Eight!
