Is it this hot in hell?

It was an uneventful but very hot weekend.  This kind of heat makes you want to just sit like a slug.  It was too hot to eat and believe me that's hot!

I talked to my brother this morning and he told me he had a bad night last night.  He said he had nightmares.  I asked what they were about and he said, "I couldn't find the number 9".  

Now, that would give a dream expert something to sink their teeth into.  I have no idea what that means.  Bless his heart!

My daughter called me last night and told me they were planning a night out to celebrate all the July birthdays.  That would include my son-in-law, a friend of theirs and me.  The only problem with the plan is that they are young and I am not.  They are going to the city Friday night to see a band that doesn't start playing until 8pm. Sorry folks, I'm getting my jammies on by 8:00.  But it's the thought that counts.  

Birthday celebrations (at least my own) don't mean what they used to for me.  I'm just happy that I made to another birthday and that's about as much celebrating as I need.  There is nothing I want or need so gifts are not necessary.  I'm happy to get a phone call and a happy birthday wish.  Makes my day complete.

I feel the same as you about birthdays; just happy to see another one, but not wanting to make a fuss over it.

I have a friend who plays in a band that seldom starts before 10pm. I don't think I will ever get to see him!

Have fun on your birthday--even if it is just getting into jammies.

July is huge in my family for birthdays also. I just had mine and my sister's is Friday, plus two nieces on the 10th,& my dad was the 27th.
Just another day here. Phone calls are the best present. My niece just called, I even like the late ones.
Happy Birthday July girl.

Ok you've got my curiosity and have to ask the obvious, is anyone's birthday the 9th?

Caregivingly Yours, Patrick

Why yes son-in-law. Is your birthday the 9th by chance?

Patrick said...

No I'm the 18th as is Patti's - makes it easy. :) I asked about the 9th because of your mention of your brother's dream about the number 9. I've found that sometimes for example in my friend's son with severe autism that somewhere somehow there is a fragment of something else that is going on or has gone on all jumbled up.

Caregivingly Yours, Patrick
