Wednesday again, and time flies. This week isn't as busy as the last, and we're well into the Christmas season.
Today is a milestone, of sorts. PawPaw will attain the ripe old age of 53 sometime today. And, my drivers license isn't due for renewal for another year.
Three years ago, Milady hosted a surprise party for me. I didn't realize that there was a surprise party until I came in the backdoor of the house and stepped into the bathroom. I kept my toothbrush in there and my toothbrush had been moved. I realized then that she had straightened for a special occasion and that either I was going to a party or I had been evicted.
Two years ago I spent my birthday in a court room.
Last year I worked a fifteen hour day on my birthday.
This year, I get off at 3:00 and all the kids are coming over for a combination birthday/christmas party.
My married children spend thanksgiving with us, and go to the other parents for Christmas. As Milady normally works Christmas, and when I was working shift I worked Christmas, this doesn't pose a burden. We just have Christmas early.
So, tonight the grandkids will open presents under our tree and we'll exchange gifts with our children, and Milady has something especially sparkly under the tree.
I hope she likes it.
