It's my birthday today. I have survived another trip around the sun and hope to go a good many more rotations.
When I was growing up it was always exciting when anyone in our house had a birthday. That was the only time that we were allowed to have soft drinks and sweets. This extended to parents birthdays as well so 6 times a year we kids flew high on sugar!
The birthday person got to choose what the family would eat for dinner that night. I always, always chose roast lamb (baked dinner). My mother cooked the best baked dinner and gravy. I've never found anyone to rival her. Even now, when I go home, I request a baked dinner even though my poor mother is in her 70's and has to use a walker to get around!!
So in the absence of a baked dinner what will I have for dinner tonight? Pizza from great El Salvadorian place.
Feeling quite a bit better today – happy on the inside; but still a bit crappy around the edges.
