When you stop and thing about it, turning 90 is a pretty big deal, especially if you are still living at home and can get around. True, you may have to use a walker but being able to move from room to room is much better than being bed ridden, in my opinion. Another good thing is that she still has friends that are near her age that she can visit with and talk over old times. That does make a difference, I reckon.
My sister from North Carolina has been here for a couple of weeks to visit with Mom and to give me a much needed break. I've really enjoyed the extra free time, believe me! I do hope that doesn't come across as selfish, but I needed a breather.
Anyway, with a houseful of company and cousins coming in and out, I figured it would be OK for me to forgo the 'toons for today. There will be sandwiches and all kinds of finger foods to go round, plus punch and coffee and tea...just in case any of you guys wanted to drop by! Everybody is welcome and Mom would enjoy the company, I'm sure!
We better have coffee in the kitchen this morning, mainly because of the flooded streets and possible rain. You have a great day, OK?
Happy 90th Birthday, Mom!!
