Well, for one thing *someone* turned 10. This someone insists that she cannot be called a ‘double digit migit’ because she’s way too tall for that. And so she is.
We took her out to a Japanese Steak House with all of our closest kin. Two big brothers, one big sister, one big-brother’s-girlfriend and one, much older cousin (well, a year and seven months older cousin…). And we meant to go for Mexican but thanks to a hurricane that knocked power out for many people, the mexican restaurants were all packed and had waits that rival tickets lines for the Rolling Stones. So we spent more and waited less.
It was a nice time and while the sleepover was cancelled due to the arrival of Irene, how many people get a hurricane for their birthday?
