AND LIE ABOUT YOUR AGE!!!!!
Trudy, my baby sister, the youngest of my Mom's six children, had her 46Th birthday this Thursday. And let me tell you ... this sweetheart of a person has no need to lie about her age. Really..even her kids will let her hang around them in public! .... ..she looks so great!
HOW OLD WOULD YOU BE IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW HOW OLD YOU WAS?
Trudy's husband was to be away for awhile and when he jokingly told my 81 year old mom, "Now you girls, don't be going out and partying!" we had to celebrate with some Strawberry Margaritas!! WooHoo! Yea! (we live on the dangerous side!) Well .. we needed some food to go with all that alcohol!!! We enjoyed ourselves with bowls of yummy French Onion soup, topped with cheesy Gouda, on top of toasted chiabatta slices . More margaritas to wash that food down. WooHoo! WooHoo! Are we still hungry??? Yes we are! Pita sandwiches with grilled chicken breasts, avocados, tomatoes, purple onions, cucumbers and yogurt dip did the trick........ except our glasses were empty..but not for long!! More WooHoos! We are full and we never make it to the fresh strawberrys and pound cake. Being the huge party animal that I am.....I did make it to the bed tho for an immediate nap ! Hey..we have to do this more often!
YOU KNOW YOU ARE GETTING OLD WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE THE MORNING AFTER AND YOU HAVEN"T BEEN ANYWHERE!
Trudy is quite beautiful..Yea and it's inside and out! And it is true, beauty truly comes from within. She never ceases to amaze me ..her generosity..thoughtfulness..and consistent support. I'd say she's a better sister to her friends than most sisters are to their sisters. And having a her in our family a treat. Her laughter is wonderful ...full of appreciation, merriment AND..it just goes to show you ..your not insane, she just thinks your funny!
YOU KNOW YOU ARE GETTING OLD WHEN YOU KNOW ALL THE ANSWERS BUT NO ONE ASKS YOU THE QUESTIONS !
The Taurus: The earth sign. Ruled by Venus. Symbol of the Bull:Practical, steady
Traits: stubborn, dependable, persistent, affectionate, possessive
True to your mascot, the bull, your stubbornness is the root of your perseverance. You are highly motivated to see things through to the end because you derive great satisfaction in your reward. Because you work so hard at accomplishing your goals, esp. in your career, you value a hard earned buck. You are very practical, but you aren't particularly interested in trying new things as change makes you feel uneasy and vulnerable. Instead you crave stability and are comfortable with the familiar. Your fixed quality could also explain why you tend to be unwavering in your opionions.. Your cool, calm and collected exterior hides your tenacious temper. Rarely do you unleash it on others unless you're seriously or continuously provoked. Beneath your down to earth personality lies someone who is very romantic and concerned with matters of the heart.
So HAPPY BIRTHDAY Trudy Lee. We love you. You are so special!
P.S. EDIT: For all of my loved Sisters and Nieces that were unabled to attend Trudy's little luncheon..You were very missed. The memories of all those times when we all were happily together and we had so much fun are still in my mind and dwell in my heart. I love you all.
