Today is my beloved's birthday! Once again, he will be older than me for the next 7 months. We're going to dinner for 2 at a nice place; will do a larger dinner another time, when more of the family can come. Our son remembered to call, but he forgot the date and called yesterday, which is probably just as well since he has night school after work today. Daughter is off today, and baking cookies. There is a giant basket of gourmet treats, which he can feast on at leisure.
AW: I mis-remembered the date something is due, and it's next week! Still stuff to get done before then, but it feels like a gift.
Family: My aunt is a genealogy freak -- I mean, she recently discovered that a woman from the House of David married some ancestor in the 700's, so we have all heard that we are actually part Jewish. My aunt's youngest son lives near me, and we carpooled yesterday to the distant party for his older brother. He thought the cousin whose funeral is this week (he recalls this cousin not at all) was some kind of uncle; did not know that his mom's mom and cousin Jim's mom were sisters. Conclusion: the family telegraph operates weirdly.
And how's by you?
