Friday was my birthday.  Xenia posted something really nice about it.  We didn’t celebrate it until yesterday because Kim and her boyfriend were coming from Coeur d’Alene for part of the weekend.  Xenia took some pictures but missed out on the cake and ice cream with the rest of us because Kim had car troubles and was a couple hours late getting her.  That forced a schedule change that caused a conflict for Xenia.  And of course by that time we had received news of Jason being injured.  I was and am still rather depressed about it.  We didn’t really celebrate my birthday as much as go through the motions.

I did like what Xenia’s history teacher had to say about my birthday, “Just tell him it’s an awesome caliber.”
