This will be really short today. Today, January 30th, is Jo’s ___ birthday. No…I am not stupid enough to put 69th in the blank. What do you take me for? A glutton for punishment? Someone who wants to be strung up and beat with a wet noodle? Someone who considers his life on this earth very short?

She is going to get pampered today. She already knows it. Braden recently said, “Mamaw, you have the best life ever.”

“What do you mean?”

“You can sleep as late as you want. You can watch TV all day. You can play on your phone sitting on the couch for as long as you want.  Do you even cook?”

(Jo chuckling) “Only when I have to.”

“See! You have the best life ever!”

(Where does this kid come up with stuff like this?)

I tell her she is a kept woman. Today I will make her a blessed woman. After a short stint at the office (while she sleep as long as she wants), I will be spending the rest of the day with her- doing whatever she wants to do. I can GUARANTEE it will mean one thing: we. will. eat. out. for. lunch.  🙂  That is, perhaps, her favorite thing to do (next to spending time with Braden).

All that to say I will be absent from here until later this afternoon. We have some place to be tonight unless she decides she doesn’t want to go (it is not required to be there). That, like the rest of the day, will be entirely up to her.

Meanwhile, have a great day!

      I’m hoping she knows how much she means to me Diane. I never want to take that for granted. I’ll pass along you wishes to her. (And maybe she will read the post).

  5. Happy Birthday, Jo!!! I know you will go above and beyond, Bill, to make this day special for this extraordinary woman. Blessings to you both!

      We had a nice day Martha. I know at one point she told me she already had 9000+ steps. I think she is at home now relaxing. (translated: napping)

    Happy Belated Birthday to Jo! Yeah a day of eating out sounds awesome, even if it means not cooking and cleaning up afterwards! 🙂
