Happy Birthday Mama.

The other night I had a dream I was participating in the "Dead Man's Marathon". It took place in some Egyptian city and consisted of running, swimming through mud, and hiking pyramids (Is that even possible??) Anyway, running the marathon with me was my family and Adam. Once we crossed the finish line I remember feeling such a strong sense of accomplishment-I was completely out of breath, hunched over with my hands on my knees, and I look up to see my Mom sitting there in a chair, as if she had already finished the race.
"Did you finish already?!" I said, trying to catch my breath--
"NO!" she replied, "this guy over here kicked me out half way because he said I was too OLD".
Then I woke up. I thought it was funny, but I don't think MauREEN will think its funny.
Mom, I hope you have a great Birthday- and remember, you are never too old for ANYTHING---but i'm really sorry you missed rock climbing up the pyramids, that was the funnest part ;)

Loves, E
