[personal] Birthdays, birthdays

Thursday night we had my birthday party in Omaha, about which I will post more, perhaps tomorrow. That was the actual date of my 49th birthday, 6/6. Last night, we had my family birthday dinner and party here in Portland, about which I will also post more, soon. Today [info]mlerules is celebrating her birthday (out of season), at which I, my family and most of the tribe will be in attendance. There may be posting about this as well.

Tomorrow will be socially quiet, though we are busy around the house. Monday we tumble into JayCon week, with a wide number of events and dinners and whatnot, culminating in JayCon XIII a week from today.

I am supposed to make my heart attack potato salad [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ] today for [info]mlerules' party, but the hand-foot syndrome from the Regorafenib is driving me crazy, so I cannot cook. Specifically, I cannot stand on my feet for any length of time, gripping things such as knife handles and spatula handles is quite painful, and I am severely heat sensitive, which makes roasting things in the oven or frying them in a pan a somewhat ill-advised activity.

Happily for all concerned, [info]tillyjane (a/k/a my mom) and the Niece are coming over this morning to pinch-cook on my behalf.

So, yeah, food and fun have abounded since Thursday, and will abound through next weekend. After which we doubtless go back to our usual state of starving and miserable.

Or maybe not.
