Happy Birthday to Me

Yep, today is my birthday and Jack got me the greatest present ever -- a round-trip ticket for Zoe to fly home from England. I think she'll be coming in October. It will be a year since we've seen her. Thanks to long distance and email, we're in close contact, but it's not the same as seeing her in person. I can't tell you how many times, when I tell people my daughter lives in England, they say, "How wonderful! You can go visit!" Makes me want to slap them silly. No, we can't just hop back and forth and now, with airline fares sky high and the value of the dollar in the toilet, it's even harder. So Jack gets major kudos for this great birthday present. It was definitely a happy, happy birthday!
