Today would have been my grandmother’s birthday.  Above is a picture of her when she was young.  She mailed it to me long ago with a note saying that I should take note on how they wore their hair back in the day.  She wasn’t impressed with my hairstyle at one stage, but we did get along and I miss her a lot.

My parents thought I would arrive on her birthday, but I waited to claim my own day…the following day

I’m not in the mood to celebrate my birthday tomorrow….

Its the first year I feel like this…Usually I am super excited so I am trying to get into the mood by looking back on my birthdays when I was a kid (it seems that kids are always excited about birthdays)

….once upon a time I liked to …
