I had a good birthday dinner. My mother-in-law fixed turkey breast, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, and corn. She bought me a beautiful cake with red icing and black flowers. I had never seen one with those colors and I think it was pretty fabulous. They put a "9" candle on it because that was the only candle they had. What's funny about that is that earlier in the day, when we were alone, I asked Jamie how old he thought Mommy was today and he said, "Nine."
I got a new electric razor. I'm generally too lazy to shave my own legs and my husband does it for me. Yeah, I'm spoiled like that. :) I love the Lady Remington wet/dry shaver and the screen broke on my old one so I got a new one for my birthday.
I got a cute little card from my baby boy and a pencil holder. Too precious.
I got some pictures of Jamie with Pap. He got to come home yesterday. They have called Hospice in and he will not be returning to the hospital. He was lucid and even played with Jamie a little. Jamie is a little afraid of him, so we were lucky to get them sitting together and a couple of pictures with all the kids.
Just for the record. I payed attention to the story he was telling tonight. He talked at length about how he dropped out of school and wish he hadn't because it held him up a little bit in his career as a builder, but that he was exceptionally good at math and that was the only reason he was able to be so successful. Jamie already shows such an interest in numbers and Matthew is extremely good at math. Perhaps it is hereditary.
