"You got be with your friends, even when life sucks"
I didn't want to go tonight, I knew something was probably up, they told me it was just a party for Barb. I was trying to stay away. I left work for a hair cut, which thanks to Sheila at Expressions, turned into a cut, color and had my eyebrows done. The brighter hair lifted my spirits a bit, but I still didn't want to go tonight. I figured I go home, have Parke take me out to dinner and then come home and sulk.
I got lots of reasons to sulk,. I am on a partial layoff from work, ends are harder to meet, savings is starting to deplete, can't find a new job because I don't have a college education and I am not bilingual. I got family issues, health issues, money issues and just some plain old issues. Why celebrate?
On the other hand, God loves me, I have a job, ends do seem to eventually meet, I still have savings, a man who loves me, a mother who bought me cupcakes, grandchildren with a birthday message, and I have good friends. Lots of really good friends. Who love me even when I sulk. Yeah, I guess I have some good reasons to celebrate.
So besides being my birthday, which by the way happens every year around this time, it's.....another day in Catasauqua.
