My family is pretty close. Even though my siblings and I are close to or over 50 we still celebrate every birthday. Today we celebrated my niece’s 11th and my brother’s 55th.
Preparing for one of these things takes a little work for me. The morning of a get together I have to stay off my feet as much as possible. Otherwise, they just won’t make it.
The party started around 2pm. I’m mostly a spectator when it’s time for physical activity. Just walking from the house to the yard is enough for me. But, I’ll participate in games and other things. I try to sit as much as I can so that my feet aren’t aching.
We had a great time. There was good food, conversation, sarcasm, and silliness. Just another typical family get together.
Right now, I’m typing on my computer. My feet are pulsating and sore. I could have stayed home, but I need this break. I need the conversation and the joking.
Tomorrow, I’ll be nursing sore feet. But, for now I will dwell on having an enjoyable day.
