I have eaten in a restaurant three times in 2014 - my birthday, when Uncle John and Aunt Gerri were visiting and tonight, for Jamie's birthday. Sitting hurts. The hurt lingers for days after the event. I have to really be choosy about when I want to sit. Milestone birthday of mini-me... good reason to sit.
I'm going to be posting more pictures on the blog, I think. It helps me keep those who are blog readers only in the loop and will give me blog fodder when I'm not feeling very articulate. And there's another reason. I have instagram but don't have a smart phone. You have to add pictures to instagram with a tablet or smartphone. Laptop = no good. I can't figure out how to transfer photos from my camera to the tablet other than clicking on them on the good old blog and saving them to the tablet. It's a clunky process and I'm sure there's someone out there smarter than me that could figure out a better way. And... I mean... I could upgrade to a smart phone but I use my phone so rarely that I can't justify that expense. So... yay! Pictures!

I miss a lot of special occasions because of pain but I'm glad this is one I was able to be a part of. My nieces are my touchstone. They make me feel needed. And loved. And special. I treasure the relationship we have. We came back to the house for a little My Little Pony/ Equestria Girl watching, wringing every drop out of merry-making that we possibly could!
2015 is going to include a lot of special - and sometimes challenging - moments. I pray that I will have the strength to be all that I should be for the people in my life.
And now... I'm tired. Love and hugs, y'all!
