Today is a special day for which I am grateful. My birthday. I am a squillion years old now. Or as I persist in saying "39 again". (And again and again and again and... etc.) So, I just got the first of five phone calls from a classroom over the mountains in Charlotte NC. My son who teaches 7th grade asks the kids if they want to sing happy birthday to Mama S. (me) If they all agree and it has to be all, my son will fire up his cell phone and the kids will sing Happy Birthday to me. This occurs five times each birthday. It's a thrill and I love it. They all agreed to do so for the 0840 class. I have four more coming if they all want to, in the next classes throughout the day. I've seldom had a better reason to remain home in the day, don't you think?
Well, Donkey, who is a friend of Katie was operated on yesterday and he is feeling oh! so much better. Whew. What drama we had until he came out of surgery what with his broken back and all. His innards were spilling out too and Dr. Mom had a time of it getting him set to rights again. BUT all is well and he re-joined us last night but on the floor. I guess he wasn't up to be carried into the bed by his thirteen pound mistress. His stitches are uneven but sturdy. He'll be good for many more carries into the bedroom.
I feel great, and I took a good brisk walk yesterday. Not the first one I have done recently, but the most brisk. It was gorgeous out and I loved every minute. My Fitbit was pleasantly surprised as well.
Hope all is well where you are today! Would it help if I insist on that? ❤
