Ok, stop all the worrying. Calm down and chill out. Oh my what B/C can do to us all. It seems that this d*&#ed illness effects every part of our lives. Where we were once rational people, we become irrational. Where we were once people that lived day to day and could handle all the cr&p, we become incompetent and stuck in all the cr&p. Where we once could think clearly about little things, we become dull headed about the smallest things. You have been through lots the last couple of years. Give yourself a break and enjoy what comes to you on a daily basis. Recognize the little joys and blessings.
Sorry about the weather, but Mother Nature does her own thing!!! You cannot change it. It might not happen and all 86 wonderful people will be there to help you celebrate. Yippee. I wish I was celebrating my 40th, noreaster or not. On my son's 5th birthday we had a blizzard hit and only three people made his celebration. We had no cake because DGM was making the cake and she couldn't come. So, we had ice cream with a candle stuck in it. It was so much fun. Then he got to celebrate the next night with the rest of the crowd (sans the ice cream). He loved it.
Just remember Dr. Ellen you are so normal. We all panic about big plans. Here is to NO LUMP . Those late night panic attacks are the worst and most irrational. I will be with you at the celebration in spirit. Have a good time and Congratulations.
Prayers, Love and Hugs,
Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of one's friend springs from his earnest counsel.
