July 23, 1975, was the morning I called my mom and said "Happy Birthday, I'm in labor". About 6 hours later our second daughter was born on her grandmother's birthday. Yesterday just after that daughter left the house my mom called so I answered with "I'm supposed to call YOU on your birthday". She laughed and said she was wondering what time of day to call Sarah. This is what happens when she works the night schedule at the hospital. Mom is having a birthday party Saturday at my youngest brother's house in Lincoln, Ne, so I won't be there but I did mail her gift to John's so she will get it at the party. My daughter took the week off work which is giving her several days alone since her older sister came last weekend and took her kids home with her for the week!! Sarah and Shane will go out there (Niceville, FL) on Thursday, spend a few days there and then bring the kids home. As for me, I am having an extremely quiet week here with no grandkids around. I'm already bored!!! I should get some cleaning done, though. Oh, mom did call me again yesterday to tell me that my uncle (dad's brother) called her for her birthday and they had a good visit and he asked how old she is now (87) and he said they are both just getting too old. He is 95 now and dad and his older sister is now 97. I think I would feel the same way at that age! Mom did agree with the health issues and all the friends and family no longer here but she does have a bunch of grandkids and great grandkids there in Lincoln. Now if only they would spend a bit more time with her.
