You say it’s your birthday – It’s my birthday too, yeah

You say it’s your birthday – It’s my birthday too, yeah

“So, my sister-in-law just turned forty,” my co-worker told me as she walked into my office a couple of weeks ago, “and ever since, she has nothing but complaints.”   “What do you mean?” I asked.   “Well, first she started that she can’t sleep through the night anymore.  Then she started saying that her back and neck were bothering her when she woke up.  And her latest? She is having a difficult time getting up from the couch, because…

“Hilary, there are flowers for you here,” my office’s receptionist sung into the phone as she called me from our other location, which is about half a mile from where I work.    “Flowers?  For me?

Tails… are over rated….

Yesterday was a rough day…..It was so hard sitting in the house gearing up for Alex, the cat’s vet appointment. He didn’t understand why we couldn’t feed him, and Marc and I were on pins and needles. So, we decided to head over to the animal hospital early, just in case they were able to see him sooner.   Alex was great in the car ride there, despite the fact that it was about an hour long.
