Judi, birthdays and holidays without kids suck!!! I spent 90 min skyping with my daughter in Australia last night.
I miss her so much it hurts. She has a boyfriend and two different families that have adopted her, so she's safe and fine and having a blast, but there's a huge hole here. Missed her a lot at Christmas, but Easter is when I usually am not so busy and get weepy and miss my mom, too. So I OD'd on chocolate and malted eggs last night and had 2 large glasses of wine. Could have been worse, I guess.
I worked with a woman who calls her very grown son every year on his birthday at the time he was born, 6:15 am. No matter where he is, and she doesn't care about waking him up.
After all the sugar and wine last night, I couldn't sleep. Stomach was icky, mind was wandering. So I'm up early with coffee ready for a restart!
Hope your holiday weekend is getting better, Judi. Overdoing chicken and fruit isn't really effective, but at least it's healthier than what I did!
