Clayton has had a setback and my heart breaks for him. On Friday I turned fifty-five. I wish I could say it was an awesome day but my husband was ill, and everything that could go wrong did. We ended up going to bed at 8:30. On Saturday we all got together for dinner and some cake. I am excited for the Fraterfest readathon and this week you can sign up for the HoHoHoRAT!! Elbow hugs! Stay Caffeinated.

    Hope things return to normal and everyone feels better soon so you can have a wonderful bday month…
    Belated birthday wishes to you

    Ah – I’m so very sorry that your birthday hit the buffers with your husband’s illness and Clayton still suffering. It’s particularly wrenching when grandchildren are poorly. I have a dear friend who insists on celebrating her birthday for a whole month, with a series of little treats and outings – which I think is a great idea:). I hope that all those lovely, scary October reads go some way to helping rescue your birthday month.

  3. Wendy Williams

    So sorry about your grandson. I hope he feels much better soon. I’m looking forward to your review of The Book of Magic, I’ve been wanting to read it.

    Poor Clayton! Hopefully you’ll find answers for the tummy troubles soon. I know it must be so frustrating and heartbreaking for you all. Happy birthday to you! I’m sorry to hear it was one of those days but I highly recommend celebrating for at least a month to balance those kinds of things out. Have a wonderful week!

    Sorry to hear about troubles. I’ll add prayers for health and recovery.
    Happy Belated Birthday.
    I hope next week everything improves.
    Enjoy your reading!

    Happy Belated Birthday and so sorry to hear about little Clayton and your husband.

    Cheers to a better week ahead for all!

    I’m so sorry that Clayton is having such a tough time, and that your birthday didn’t go well. You have all had more than your share of sickness this year! I hope your husband is feeling better, and that they can figure out the best treatment for Clayton soon. Poor little guy! Hugs to you, and birthday wishes for a great year and better health all around.
