It wasn’t easy “celebrating” a birthday two days after Brian’s funeral. After taking Kiley to the barn and watching her ride, I thought it would be nice to go out and cross a food category (Mexican) off the list. After we were seated, and to my surprise, Conor walked in. Dinner with the family is the best present. I ordered the dinner special that had a bit of everything, so I don’t think I will be craving Mexican food in the near future. And of course dessert, because as my neice Tara says, “It’s bulking season”. This was followed by Insomnia Cookies complements of my cousin, Greg, and his wife, Barb. And then presents: A nice robe and slippers for my strolls around the hospital hallways for excercise and to avoid boredom. Lots birthday wishes and posts from friends and family made it a good birthday.
