This morning I knew right away that we would not be going to the party. We wouldn't have a date and we would not need to worry about the sitter. We will save those adventures for some other day, hopefully in the not too distant future.
Meanwhile, instead of birthday delights, I had cereal for dinner. Instead of a night on the town, we are watching (ho hum) the FOURTH disk in a FIVE-part series on the Civil War. Oh, friends, save me. And save me SOON.
