Happy Birthday!

Today is Daughter's 24th birthday. We will celebrate by going out to eat after the wedding this afternoon. She seems to be feeling a bit better today, though she was rather unpleasant when I told her I needed to wash her hair. I responded to her protest by informing her one of us would do it today. She chose to let me do it. She's singing now, so that's a good sign. Her hair is clean, but I need to comb it out and style it a bit.
It is still extremely cold. It's hard to believe it's spring. At least the sun is shining. The wedding today is in a facility located in a beautiful, natural setting. I'm sure they'll want to take some pictures outdoors. They'll have to do it quickly or they'll all be frozen.
I bought Daughter a karaoke game for the wii. I had originally ordered it for Christmas, but decided to save it for her birthday after I purchased another game. It was in my office, still in the shipping box. She knew it was a birthday present, and when she was alone in my office a couple of weeks ago, she opened it. I simply said, "Well, you kind of spoiled the surprise, didn't you?" She's frustrated there is nothing to open. I probably would have bought her something more if she hadn't opened the gift early. She'll still get dinner out at a very nice restaurant, and I'll probably get her some new clothes in the next few weeks.
It's hard to believe she's 24. She's been with me 21 years, and next month we'll celebrate the 16th anniversary of her adoption. I never thought she'd need this much supervision at this age. It's a good thing I didn't know what I was getting into.
