Party Birthday Day
I'm not working today so I tried to sleep in a bit. Beth and I talked an hour and a half before we hung up. I've got coffee cooked but haven't gotten any yet.
It's going to be a chilly day with a high of only 60. I think I may go light the fire and enjoy my coffee in there and ponder my day.
I'm having a party tonight. First party (or probably even first company) in many many years. I want to have more company and more gatherings. I hope this works out easy and everyone has fun. Lots more people are coming than I would have expected.
Conversation with B! this morning was a lot about her dissatisfaction with her relationship and it's "dullness" and his lack of enthusiasm for doing something besides watching Family Feud reruns. Her "in-laws" are derogatory and demeaning and she snapped at a couple of them recently. She loves her sort-of niece-in-law, but it sounds like her marriage would have cratered by now, too, if it weren't for their kids. It really is rare to find couples that are doing well. I realize now in retrospect how lame ours was these last 15 or 20 years. But I do some have a rebound, like my sister's, so maybe there is hope for some of these marriages and relationships....
3 hours later...
Long phone calls are the order of the day! 2 hours with sister. I need to get started on getting ready for the party!
