I did. I don't get to spend too much time with my daughter. She only lives only thirty seconds from me. But you would think it was miles. When she first went back to work it was for only 20 hours per week. Now she is working full time. She got notice that the State is offering her a full pension is she wants to take early retirement. She is so excited that I had to stop talking about it while she was driving. She works for the DMV in the Management Department. It's the department where all the political appointments work. We just got a new Governor and he is cleaning house. The new appointments that are coming in are all friends of my daughter. So she has been showing them the ropes. Lots of changes coming to the whole DMV.
I had a great day. I ordered the Fried Clam Dinner again. They had nice big fat bellies on them. The plate was filled way over my ability to eat all of it. So I brought most of it home to eat for a lunch or even breakfast.
I got my hair cut and made it home just in time to talk to my youngest grandchild with Skype. I have 17-18 grandkiddies. There are so many I have lost count. But this one is very special to me. He is my youngest child's son. And I got to hold him when he was just three days old. I fell in love with him right away. And it has remained that way ever since. I just don't get to see him as often as I would like.
Thank you to all who wish me a happy birthday today. I really have great kids. Last year on my 75th birthday, my kids threw me a bash to celebrate the event. This year my daughter took me out and paid the hairdresser to get my tresses cut. And while I was out with her, my two oldest boys cleaned my apartment for me. The only thing they didn't do was the laundry. But I am ever grateful for what they did do. It let me rest when I finally did get the chance to do so. Even Teddy was all over me with kisses and jumping up and down when I got home. He was so excited to see me. Spike said that he was quietly on my bed the whole time from when he arrived. He told me he knew I was home when Teddy jumped off the bed and ran to the door barking his fool head off. He started as soon as I stepped off the elevator. And nothing was going to stop him from barking as he stood at the door waiting for me to get to my door. I could hear him all the way from the elevator. Nothing like love from a pet to cheer you up.
Again a big THANK YOU
to all of my DC friends. This forum is one of my favorite places to come to each day.
