I hate when we have to start planing out the summer. Today J and I looked at the calendar to plan out annual trip to Michigan, so I had to start filling things on the calendar. We have so much this summer. My sister is going to start radiation treatment soon for a non malignant brain tumor, it will take about six weeks to complete, every day for thirty treatments. Then we have a bridal shower, a wedding, relatives coming from down south for a weekend, 4th of July family get together, before I know it, it will be time to leave for Arizona.
I don't like planning, it seems to make the time go so quickly. I try to plan things with Louise at least once or twice during the week and with Connie on the weekends. If I am lucky I get to see my younger brother once a month or so at our breakfasts. I am looking forward to my nephews wedding because our whole family from Pa. is coming home for it.
So much to do, so little time.
The closer I get to my birthday, the worse it gets. Judy and I celebrated out birthdays together in Door County, WI every year for the last seven or eight years. I don't even want to think about this year. I told J I definitely don't want to be away from my sisters this year on my birthday. I want to celebrate my birthday surrounded by loved ones, not alone grieving for Judy.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
