First- My Dad died back in 1966 13 days before my 16th birthday. Since then I have been semi depressed for a couple of weeks before and after that date.
Second- My Mom took me on a trip to Israel in 2000 for my 50th birthday--we were at the Wailing Wall on my 50th birthday something was supposed to happen (bombing or something)-luckily it did not but it sure was tense the entire time we were in Israel! I was VERY glad when we got back on American soil.
Third- 9/11 happened two days before my birthday.
Fourth- When my birthday falls on a Friday (like this year)strange things happen! So now I try to just stay home and not tempt fate.
On the other hand:
The number 13 itself can usually bring me luck (as long as I don't attempt to use it to win something on a Friday!)
So why am I telling you all this? Because I may just disappear on Friday (of course I may not) and hide in my bed with a book (of course 7 books appeared at my door all needing reading and reviews AT THE SAME TIME) until I have to go out to dinner that evening with my Mom--I do have a post scheduled to go up that day and I hope you all go and comment on it--I will return on Saturday. But it may take me another week or two to get back to my usual happy self.
