It Was a Nice Day

Having lunch with my two daughters today was awesome. I wrote earlier that we were going to celebrate my oldest daughters birthday which is on Saturday. Since her daughter has a big marching band competition there are no plans for a birthday party. My daughter also insisted that no one arrange a surprise party and she's not very happy hitting her 50th birthday. Heck, how does she think I feel having a daughter that's 50!! Our quiet little lunch turned out to be a very nice way to acknowledge her birthday and she was happy to hear that there are no plans for a big party. It was also nice for me to have a few hours distraction from the daily grind of taking care of my mom and the revolving door of care takers that come. Now if I can have a relaxing evening this day will be a good one all the way around

Glad to hear that you all had an enjoyable lunch together. It is good that she was pleased with it rather then having a party. Some people like having a big party to celebrate their 50th and othersee like something low key. It is always nice though when we get to spend time with our children. Happy birthday to your daughter.

It's always good to spend time with family. I'm surprised you have a daughter/child that old. I got a late start in having kids, so I'll be eighty-six and eighty-nine when my two daughters hit that age. I hope I'm still going strong by then.
