Happy Birthday to My Menfolk, Far Away

June 30, 1998

Whose dumb idea was this anyway?

My firstborn and my husband's birthdays are today. Nathaniel, 19, has been in Italy since Monday, and Herb, 53, has been in Chicago since Sunday.

My birthday is next week, and Nathaniel and Emma will not be here then either. For that matter, I don't know if my husband will be. I can't keep track anymore. I guess I'll plan on putting a little cone birthday hat on Fiona and playing "pin her tail to her hip bone" with one of Herb's industrial-strength, cordless power tools.

I'm starting to sound insane. I don't think I'm meant to be alone.
