34 years ago today, after 28 hours of awful labor, my mother gave birth to her first child: me! Today has been really low-key. I slept late, got a migraine, ate a lunch, took a nap, talked to my parents, got an arrangement of roses and daisies from Brother Snort, SIL Snort, and my precious niece, and both Footlong and J had gifts for me. (6-inch was happy to play with the tissue paper and gift bag.) We’ll be having Chinese takeout for dinner, a few alco-beverages, and J has promised to give me lots of back and foot rubs. All and all it has been a nice day. Thanks for having me, Mom! Sorry it hurt so bad.
