The birthday girl is sick.
I have been sick for the last two weeks. Sinus infection, ear infection and some problems with my right lung. My symptoms? I have a terrible runny nose, I spit, I cough, and I am almost deaf. Luckily, I have no visitors and I can walk around the house in my pajamas, with my box of tissues and my throat losanges.
Today is my birthday. I don’t want to say my age. It’s enough to say that I am not 20 years old anymore and neither is my youngest child. I live far away from my family and friends, so I like to know that they don’t forget me. Especially today.
A few years ago, I used to receive birthday cards and birthday phone calls. I loved it. Of course these days, it’s even better. There is Facetime, Google video, Skype, etc. Even if we live far away from the people we love, we can still talk to them like if they were in our living room. It’s great to be able to see each other.
This is why, I would like to say to all my friends who were extremely nice to call me this morning to wish me Happy Birthday and who got this image on their screen:
I AM TERRIBLY SORRY!!!
I would like you know that I finally took a shower, and I washed and brushed my hair. I put on nice clothes and some jewelry. I even put on make-up.
