My Day

Happy Earth Day…and happy birthday to a certain blogging cat who shall go nameless, but who clings to her Tampa Bay Lightning even though they are the worst team ever! (Next year…I tell you, next year…they will take the Cup.)

I actually will be spending my birthday evening with the kids, a McDonald’s picnic in the park, no less. I joked with Sunflower that since she didn’t tell me what she wanted to eat, I would order her a broccoli and cauliflower sandwich. Quick on the draw, she called my bluff and informed me that was what she wanted anyway. She laughed triumphantly, then paused and hesitantly asked, “McDonald’s doesn’t really have that, do they?” I assured her they don’t serve yukky vegetable sandwiches…but that I could get a green bean milkshake instead.

It took me a while to remember today is my birthday. I wake up with my head churning and grinding and spinning, full of thoughts and worries and plans. I miss Gary.

I am looking forward to seeing the kids. And maybe…if I have a spare moment…I will hit the grocery store and see if I can whip up a broccoli and cauliflower sandwich!

    Happy Birthday!! I’m glad you have some fun planned and hope you have the best time with the kids. I know you miss your sweetheart a lot today, as you do every day you’re not with him. I am praying that things will go well for both of you. That would be the best birthday present of all!!
