Birthday Weekend Recap

My birthday started out on a down note. My day was "off" and I was feeling pretty glum. I was missing my mom. I met my sister at her grave and put on flowers. When I get home I had myself a good cry and then we left for camp. P was in a rush and there didn't seem to be time for dinner. Both R and C were working, so they weren't around either. At camp we settled in and P got occupied talking with neighbors. By the time he came in I was really upset. Poor guy didn't know what hit him! A bit later some friends stopped by and gave birthday wishes, then our other friends up there had us over for coffee. P had gotten a small cake and I felt a tad better about it all. I'm really not sure why this birthday bothered me...getting older....whatever, I just couldn't put my finger on it.
Saturday C came to camp and P helped our friends with their new screenroom. They were able to get the top done during the day and Saturday night I called Bingo. It was a great turnout. After Bingo we had a campfire and lots more laughs. Sunday they went to work on the screen sections. R called and said he had the day off and was going to visit. A bit later my dad and A showed up. Also PJ came in. I was getting anxious as I thought they were all planning on staying overnight and we had been invited to dinner with friends. P asked my dad to go to dinner, but they wanted to get home and work on their veggie garden. C, PJ, and R said to go ahead to dinner, they'd go into town and find something to do. They left and I quickly got changed. Our friends picked us up and off to dinner we went. I had never been to the place before and joked about needing reservations. It was a rather "hole in the wall" kind of place. When I walked in I look into the bar area and couldn't seem to find anyone. Someone said...oh, there they are....when I looked over all I heard was "surprise"!!!! There were all my friends and my kids! I was indeed surprised! Those girls REALLY pulled off that surprise on me!

Happy Birthday...I'm late but I know you understand. You look great! Sounds like you got a huge surprise from your friends. I'm so glad Marty is better. It sure is scary when they don't want to eat...that's what their life if all about...eat and sleep.
