Mom's birthday is today. It's the first to roll around since she died 5 months ago and it's still hard to believe she's gone. It's been an emotional day for my Dad, brother, and I, as you can imagine. After much haranguing, her placard is finally installed so we were finally able to place flowers on the mausoleum door for the first time.

My family is not big on celebrating birthdays. Never really have been except for a couple of parties when I was a little kid. Usually, a birthday here means a card and dinner out. Today, this one involved a lot of crying, arguing, and feeling like crap (damn sinuses).

Writing related posts will resume tomorrow.
