Before I do anything, I want to wish my dear friend "J" a very Happy Belated Birthday!!! You would think that I wouldn't let the birthday of someone so dear to me slip by without me noticing, but it seems like I've been doing that a lot lately. Last December I even forgot it was my own birthday until my family reminded me.
I have a calendar, I read it daily because it's chock full of appointments, things to do, places to go, but for some reason I thought today was the 15th and that Sunday was St. Patrick's Day. Maybe I can blame my neighbor who told me in a phone conversation that she was fixing corned beef and cabbage on Sunday...so my feeble brain thought we were off by one day. But I can't blame anyone but myself I'm afraid, and I think it's a symptom of having too many irons in the fire.
Whatever the reason...it wasn't because I don't love and appreciate my friend. And if you knew her you would love and appreciate her too. See, she won't care one bit that I forgot, she's like that, always thinking about others when she should be thinking about herself.
Anyway, I will make it up to her I promise, and in the meantime I will mortify her by publicly wishing her a Happy Birthday on my blog...one day late and many dollars short of what I wish it could be! J, when I'm rich and famous...I'll rent us a jet and we'll take tea in London for your birthday!
