Fungible Birthdays

Bob and I decided that we no longer want birthdays in June. Nor are we celebrating fathers day this June. There will be no celebrations, no cake, no presents, and no parties in June this year. Instead, I’m using hard won learning from my days as a florist’s daughter “All holidays are fungible”. Life is too busy, uncertain, and overwhelming at the moment; so birthdays are being postponed. September seems like a good month; we could celebrate it along with the equinox. Or my mom suggested coming up on October 4th when she’s hosting a barn party. Imagine 100 strangers all singing Happy Birthday to us. Its got interesting possibilities albeit a bit scary. So we can have fun planning something fun this fall. Will let you know.


Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
