HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CINDY
I see Cindy a couple of times a month, and I put out my clothes that I don't wear anymore. Sometimes she takes some and other times she takes me shopping. I got a couple pair of jeans recently when we were shopping and ended up giving them to Cindy a few weeks later! It's good that we're about the same size.
She has a big dog - April. April is a huge mastiff who has lots of hair, a big smell and much drool! She is a sweet dog but awfully big to have in a small apartment! She loves the marrow in roast bones, so Cindy buys the bones and then scrapes out the marrow for April. Cindy says there are bones all over the floor! I don't see that as I never visit them in Washington and couldn't go up their stairs anyway. When I was young, I loved marrow and would always fight over it with my brother whenever my mom cooked a roast. We had to take turns and it was always a special time for us. However, we never left bones all over the floor since Cindy wasn't around to pick them up for us. So we did the hard part by picking out the marrow and sometimes sucking it out! Where did all those good times go? I just wonder if April knows how lucky she is having a mother like Cindy.
So have a really fun day, Cin.
Don't ever forget how much I love you - it's a lot!
As you can see, I'm still having trouble with my computer. I have worked on it for days so I'm giving it up! I didn't want two pictures but I like them! So that's it for your birthday blog!!

Happy Birthday, Teri!!
Today is my daughter's birthday. Teri is now another year older, but I don't like to think of it with the word "old" used. Birthdays should be about happy days with fun and surprises. It's taken me about 30 minutes to type this much! I can't type very well since my hospital stay and I know now I should have started this about 20 days ago! I hope she will get this as I'm not sending a gift and this has to do.
Teri, I love you so much and miss you a whole lot! I think of all the times I rocked you and sang to you. I loved doing that and many times when I think of it I end up crying. I read so many articles about mothers and daughters and the times they spend together. But I don't live close to either one of my daughters, so I won't be doing any of that. Maybe I'll just end up watching "Law&Order" as I know at least one of them will be doing the same. I am so proud of you and what you have become. You are beautiful, smart and so funny! It is amazing to think that you came out of me with your dad's help. We did a good job. Hope you have a wonderful day today.
