My wife Air is a teacher, so it has been the usual crazy first-week-of-school stuff. And our kids are back to class too, in grades five and seven. Air's birthday is today, and it always falls during this nutty week. Plus I had chemo on Monday, so I was only barely functional enough to get her some flowers, a card, and some chocolates. My mom prepared a ham dinner, joined by their house guests visiting from Germany. Simply a lot going on. So, happy birthday, Air, despite the craziness.
