Happy Birthday, Mom -- Long, Busy Day (I'm Tired) 
Happy Birthday, Mom. If she were alive, she'd be 93 this year. (She passed in January of 2000...) I suppose it's silly to bring it up, but I was thinking about her (and Dad) today.

Today was a long, long day. And a busy one! And I'm very tired tonight.

June told me she had leg cramps all night long. I was having them starting early in the morning and they were around on and off all day. (sigh) Oh well.

I did a bunch of festival work. Website stuff and IT stuff. I spent some time re-drafting the training check-list I use when working with new personnel. It needs some tweaking, but should be ready when I re-train Tashae on Wednesday.

I talked to June and use TeamViewer to help her with her computer.

I talked to Donn about work tomorrow.

I chatted with friend Shari for fun!

I called Hector about the yard (he's coming tomorrow -- yes, he did do the gutters).

I emailed the garbage service at the beach. No clue if that's fixed, or not.

I took out all the old food in the house (finally). And did a load of dishes.

Adeena took me shopping to Walgreens and Freddies. I got light bulbs (finally) and a bunch of stuff I really needed, including cat food and cat snacks! So important.

Adeena stayed until past 11:00.

Marilyn got home right around 11:00 from work and her massage therapy.

We have a BIG DAY tomorrow. I'm super tired tonight. I still need to go set up my pills. It takes around half an hour (and I can hardly see straight right now).

I was starved by the time Marilyn got home -- so was she! It was a pleasure to eat. I hadn't fasted for 24 hours like Marilyn, however! She's amazing...

It was HOTTER THAN HELL here today. Really miserable. I tried not to run the air conditioner too much, but I was sweating like crazy. Awful. Poor Marilyn was FREEZING downstairs, as running the AC makes it too cold downstairs while trying to cool it off a little upstairs. The hottest room in the house seems to be the office where I was working for hours...

Tomorrow is Mayor Harry Lane Day!!!!!!!!

I need to count out wristbands for people. And get Marilyn the list of Grand Floral Parade tickets, too!

I should get the Starlight Parade script to start editing tomorrow. Adeena was finishing it up tonight.

How can it be past 1:00 a.m.??? I just didn't get as much done today as I planned. (sigh)

I better go do the pills and search for my tee. And get to bed.

It is not silly to remember your mom's birthday. It's a tribute to her. My mom would have been 95 this year and my dad 100. I'm having a hard time with that number! Oh my!

I was having a hard time with 93! So I totally get it! Hahaha.

I was chatting with Marilyn about it and had to mention that they seem like they should be younger, but after all, we're in our 60's! Hahahaha.

Love you, dearheart. You understand.

Good on you for remembering her!
