It’s important to point out Brother made a real effort at coming all the way here for my bday, what-with DeadMum and Spike who doesn’t give a crap and all my friends living as far away as Brother (or farther).
I got 4 cards, a balloon and a group song, which was nice!
I’m uses to a bit more festivities (my own planning but I’m the Planner / Caregiver) but I didn’t plan anything, so there’s that. I’ve been literally distant (as I no longer even work in a populated area) and didn’t feel like expending my energy to create something. Thanksgiving and Christmas as Matriarch are painful enough at 44-45.
