Birthday & Busy

Well, it was MY birthday on the nineth. It was a great birthday. It started out with Rocket's, a Jack Russell Terrier puppy, lesson at 6:30 am. This gave me ample time to reflect that I was right where I wanted to be at this time in my life. I have started a busines in an industry I love, which is coming into it's own. I live where I want to live. I am even in the right place, because I am estranged from my narcistic parents, in my familial relationships.

My marriage is to my best friend and partner. I have three lovely dogs. My husband and I are both loosing weight and getting healthy. Jackie looks like he may make his CD with me this fall. Robert's job is starting to heat up with more sales than he can handle right now.

There was only one flaw, and it happened the day after my birthday. My brother-in-law had his second heart attack. He has not been taking care of himself since the first one, and he is lucky in that, he will be able to recoop from this one again. Unfortunately, my brother in law is not in the best place of his life right now, and he is a good guy with two young children and a wife. I think life has been too stressful on him in a lot of ways, and I wish I had the answer for him. Sigh.

Great surprise, a high school friend that I hadn't talked to for 20 years tracked me down on my birthday!! Also my cousin in law, but really my cousin though we are not blood related, called to wish me a happy birthday. Very cool. And I talked to my brother-in-law who wished me a happy birthday before his unfortunate mishap.

Well happy belated birthday my wee little friend....hope it was a good one...
Sorry about your brother in law and maybe this will be a wake up call to take better care of himself.
We only get so many free passes in life and hope he can see that...

Again, happy birthday from the crazies on our side of the web..

Thank you. I have had a wonderful birthday month mostly. I hope my brother in law realizes that he needs to take action and take care of himself.
