Things are laid back here at Chez Us on this very fine Forfin July Day. We have slept in, exercised, baked cookies, and generally had a nice time.
Now I hope this trend continues until the day is done.
I was NOT looking forward to the holiday this year. In fact I ignored it until forced to deal with it by needing to accept an invitation for some holiday activities.
I was dreading it because the past two have in a word...sucked.
Two years ago the day was spent attending BH's grandmother's funeral.
Last year...we arrived at my brother's house for some fireworks fun only to find that my parents had just left the gathering to take my dad to the hospital because they believed (and were right) that he was having a heart attack.
So yeah....not so much fun happening.
This year will be different I tell you!
I demand it!!
Nothing but fun and happiness.
I will stand for nothing less.
