Today is my 30th birthday. Lina is on the couch breaking smiles at me after a long nap. In celebration of my birthday, I bought new paint for our bedroom walls, and then went grocery shopping, where I bought pastirma, soy sauce, orange sauce, peanut butter, coffee, chocolate, and a meat tenderizer. I’m going to make a stir-fry. Thanks for all the wonderful phone calls and messages today. Funny that I’ve been waiting for 30 since I was 16. It feels right.
