Not to continue about my birthday, but I wanted you guys to know that my siblings remembered it was my birthday, as each one called me on that day.
One of them tried to sing -- I stopped him after "Happy Birthday to You."
My friends remembered -- I got cards in the mail.
My virtual friends remembered -- they send me emails, posted on the GH message board, and responded to my blog.
my nieces and nephews -- nada.
Nephew number one (I rank them all the time based on their behavior, vocabulary, or the most recent book they read) -- called me at 9:30 on my birthday night to wish me well.
Of course, his mother prompted him, but hey, he's only nineteen. He has to move himself aside to think about me. LOL
Did any other of those nieces and nephews call me, send me a card, or email?
Plus, Stephen wins for this comment: "You're too cool to be that old."
He's definitely nephew number one. That might be a position he keeps for a while. :)
Oh yeah, Amy did me wish me well after she read my blog (see previous blog comments). She gets a break -- she's in Germany, and her husband just broke his arm. (No pun intended, Amy.)
I always remember their birthdays. Every stinkin' one of them -- and they ignore mine? Like it's hard to remember their favorite aunt's birthday?
I write them poems.
Send them money.
Buy them presents.
Tell them to bathe.
Too busy being young?
