all my troubles seemed so far away
Well, if I had to turn 30, yesterday wasn't such a bad way to do it. Reverend Ann showed up at my door first thing in the morning for a, ahem, pastoral visit (complete with doughnuts), during which we called our friend Cody and tried not to think about turning 30 together (all of us hit the big one this month). Then I had a fabulous lunch with wonderful Genie on the balcony at Shoreline Grill, did some shopping, went to the spa, and ended up the day with friends at Eastside Cafe. That plus calls from all over, lovely cards like the one above, and some really special gifts (including a cd of "old lady" songs from the Librarian and the Attorney, about which more will be written later) made for a great day, and I was almost able to forget the reason for it all. Until a text arrived from Debra: "you have one hour left." :) Thanks, y'all, for making it a special day!
