Happy Birthday to Me

Today, Sunday, on the occasion of my 43rd birthday,  I will be staying home and keeping Raphaela under observation, feeding her food that she would rather not have.  If I am feeling less paranoid, we will do two errands outside the house, yipee.

In more recent years I have wanted to give my birthday a proper celebration, a change from the pattern of most of my life, so I am bummed that this year will be mostly neglected.  I find it symbolic that as a one-year old, I sat in front of the television and watched the first moon landing, and this past week, NASA shut down its manned space program.

Happy Birthday. Enjoying your daughter after her first successful operation is a great celebration. Have a wonderful year ahead.
