On turning 28

Tomorrow I turn 28. It's sort of weird, because I feel like I'm still 17. I guess that might never go away. It's a big birthday for me. On this birthday I am older than my big brother ever got. I know the official date was back in May, but as he was 27 when he died and I've been 27 all year, if feels like for a short while we were the same age. Now, I'm older. Last year I was mournful about my birthday. It seemed wrong to become the age he never grew older than. A whole year later, it seems like time. It's time for me to step into 28. So, tomorrow I look forward to being a bit older than him, and enjoying my life with my two kids and wonderful husband. Here's to birthdays and celebrating and growing older!

Sitting around

So, to recap from this week. Sitting around and watching tv, sitting around and nursing (very carefully), sitting around and surfing the web, laying in bed and sleeping, laying on the couch and sleeping, laying on the couch and watching tv, eating bowls of soup and plates of salad.

The end.
