Birthday and such...

Just another year older now. Made my favorite homemade dinner and baked a cake... FOR MYSELF!

Breaking news: Kids are now out for the summer and I have officially made it to the ranks of a parent of two children in HighSchool!! Scary. Time has just flown by!

In health news: My Dad is doing better, but his pain is still keeping him in need of more care. He has a few blood clots in his legs and needs to be monitored pretty close still. I see months upon months of rehab in his future.

In good news, Hubby told me that he should be able to get some time off for our 10 year anniversary, so that we can take the much needed trip back East to visit his family and my sister. So that will be nice. Now we just have to come up with the extra cash for the tickets for the 4 of us.

In related news, Kids will not be with their father this summer as per usual, due to his being in Basic Training. They also won't be seeing their grandmother this summer, as they usually do, because she can't take days off? Ummm... she gets home at 4, pretty sure a nearly 16 year old and a 14 1/2 year old can keep their selves occupied during the day and she could spend some time with them in the evening and on the weekend while they are there. Besides with the time difference and the fact they are in fact teenagers, they will probably be getting up right around the time she gets home anyway.

It's not like we live down the street or anything! Sometimes people make me wonder what on earth they are thinking!
