a couple weeks ago my sister-in-law asked if there was any way i could go to charlotte for my dad's 60th birthday, which was last week, since they would be in town & wanted to try to have all 4 of us "kids" and the grandkids together. i ran up against the lack-of-a-car issue, so they came to my house from florida to pick us up in their already fully packed van & drove us to my parents' house to surprise my dad. we managed to pull off the surprise & have a really great 4 days together w/ the whole family, minus only my husband.

later this month my sister erica is turning 21 & when my parents asked her what she wanted for her birthday, she said she wanted me to be there! that's not quite as simple as it sounds, but my parents agreed & so they're doing part of a relay along w/ my friend beth to get us from here to there next week so i can be there for eri's birthday.

it's made me feel special that my family members would want me around enough to drive way out of their way & take up their time to come get me & return me. i've never been anyone's birthday present before & i didn't even have to jump out of a cake. but i think i might like to!
