A rather momentous birthday for me this year as today is the last birthday I'll celebrate in this decade of my life.
Where have all the years gone?
I do have feel some sadness today. This will be the first birthday I celebrate without my dearest aunt wishing me "Happy Birthday." My parents are long gone: my mother in 1987 and my father in 1998. For me, the hardest part about growing older is losing the ones whom I love.
This evening when I get home from work, Mr. AOW and I plan to celebrate the actual date at home, possibly with carry-out from Outback Steakhouse. Mr. AOW doesn't feel like going out much these days. Winter hibernation? Brain healing? Whatever it is, he has been quite lethargic the past several weeks.
Over the weekend, I have a lot to do. I'll be attending a play in which commenter MJB has the lead role. Also over the weekend, Mr. AOW and I will be visiting with my cousin, a United States Marine, who will soon be deploying to Afghanistan. And, of course, I have to deal with my malfunctioning desktop.
All the above to say that I'll have a limited presence here in the blogosphere for the next few days.
