The next day was my poor husband's birthday. No party for him! We are partied out. The poor guy. We will have a special dinner later in the week. It takes longer to round up the kids now that they have lives of their own. Two are in college but they are close by. Besides, they would never pass up a chance at a free dinner, especially if we go out to eat. My husband is very patient and kind and never asks for anything. We may not be able to spend lots of money for gifts but he does deserve special recognition for being a great guy. We'll find someplace cheap, er, inexpensive and embarrass him when the waiters sing to him while carrying out a flaming cupcake, just because we love him. It's the celebration that counts. I'm very lucky to have the family I do. They are the best. Now that this round of birthdays are over I have a week or two until the next flurry starts. If I hurry I might get to read a book!
