Another Birthday!
December 20, 2011

Well, yet again it is my birthday. I have to say that this has been one of the best birthdays I have had in many years. It started with getting up really early and making lattes for my husband and kissing him before he headed to work. Then going back to bed to sleep in so sweetly! Later in the morning I had a work conference call. Then snacking and a movie with my daughters. We made pizza for dinner and had yum! Then another movie all together and presents.

My husband gave me a ring, a gingerbread house kit (I love to do those), my favorite very hard to find candles, some sweet treats and a wonderful card. I know it is a little corny, but when I opened it, it played "The Way You Do The Things You Do". And he wrote, "I love you with all my heart".

Just about perfect, really...

Thursday will be my aunt's funeral. She has asked me to sing at the mass, which I will do with a dear friend and fellow singer.

I am thinking thursday will be very, very difficult for us all. My sister-in-law and brother have been posting tons of old photos of her and my uncle and all the family. Tonight I was looking through the pictures and I just cannot help but to tear up. I miss her so much already. I cannot stop thinking about her frail body, now cremated and being placed in an urn. Morbid thoughts to be sure.

Friday will be better, with everyone home and lots of Christmas shopping to be done. For that, I will be happy. Lots of good distractions.

Time to tidy up for the evening, as all have gone to sleep...

Happy Birthday to me!
