1/31/10 Sunday

Happy Birthday to my Big brother... We were supposed to be together today. Too bad he was born in January. I was supposed to be in Western Kentucky today to celebrate the day of his birth. I planned to take him date bars and cream horns fro Pattycakes Pastries... Alas a snow storm interfered. Ahh well ...maybe soon I will get to see him. I haven't seen him since August when he had his first hip replaced.
Now, he has been to rehab, he has been home for a while, he has had another hip replacement, he has been to rehab again and is now home again. I miss him a lot. I miss being with him on his birthday.
My big brother is nearly 8 years older than me (3 months less 8 years to be exact). He has always been my protector and my friend. He is a part of the foundation that makes me who I am. He has been with me through the good times and the bad times (even the terrible horrible bad times) and the joyous times.
I am so thankful for his better health. I am thankful for his lovely helpmeet Susie. I am so thankful she loves him and he loves her. I am thankful for their happiness and their family.
I miss being with him on his birthday

1/9/10 Saturday

one thing I LOVE about weekends---I get to stay in bed and sleep as much as I want too. Despite the neurologist warning me that this is not a good thing. it feels so luxurious to be able to lay in bed and plan all the things I want to do and think all the thoughts I want to think in the peace of my comfy warm bed...and know I don't have to get up unless I want to.
on another note: Mr S and I got our Christmas gift to each other today
