Happy Birthday!

Today is my black and white cats’ birthday! Yes, Roman and Maggie are twelve years old today. And if you think I didn’t sing Happy Birthday to them, you’re mistaken.

This was a weekend of feasting, and I still feel stuffed. We had sushi on Saturday night, and last night we went over to the South Shore and my father-in-law made his famous barbequed ribs for Mother’s Day. There were suspiciously few bones among the ribs; there just seemed to be plenty of tender, juicy meat heaped on the platter. Not that I’m complaining.

My own mother, on the other hand, spent Mother’s Day in Rome. My parents have finally taken a two-week trip over to Italy, as they’ve been wanting to do for a while now. The last e-mail my dad sent me before they left included an attachment of a photo he’d taken, of my mother reading my blog. So of course, I just had to post it:

How self-referential is that?
