Today is Alex’s birthday and we are looking forward to celebrating it with her. This is mine and Lance’s first birthday celebration with her. Doc has celebrated since 2019 and last year was Larry’s first birthday to celebrate with her. I am really looking forward to what today has in store for her. I do know that she wants one of those delicious cookie cakes from Great American Cookie. I hear that is a yearly tradition for her.
Aside from the cookie cake, Alex likes to go out to dinner at either Olive Garden or Don Mario’s. I think one year she changed it up a bit, but that was before any of us had come to live with her. She also likes to go out to the local shops to browse and maybe pick out a birthday gift. But since her surgery, she is only able to be out for about 2 and a half hours, at most, before she gets exhausted. It really sucks, because especially on one’s birthday, they should have the energy to be able to enjoy a full day.
I know she has talked about art galleries and botanic gardens / arboretums. I think she should try and do one of those. I want her to do one of those, because it might lift her spirits, as she enjoys those places. However, it is February, we are still in a pandemic, and so her options are probably going to be limited.
But, nonetheless, I still hope she has a wonderful day, because she deserves a wonderful day, just for her. I can tell you today is the best day of my life because it marks the anniversary of when she came into this world.
