I’m sitting outside today trying to enjoy my 37th birthday and the start of my vacation. When I left work yesterday I gave my coworker a list of things I was going to do this morning around the house before I started my birthday celebration. Well, I didn’t get to any of that because I went at it a little too hard doing my midnight celebration last night. I must be getting old and my recovery time is getting slow.
Every year around my birthday I always get real reflective. I didn’t really do that this year. That could mean that I have finally reached some kind of contentment with where I am in life so I didn’t have as much need to go over each and every decision I have made that got me to this point. I would like to think that’s the case but I don’t think it is. I think I was just too busy and tired to devote to my own self pity.
My only goals during these two weeks of vacation from work is to rest and relax as much as possible and bringing my blog back to a respectable level of posts. This once a week routine isn’t my style. I’m about to fix that as soon as possible. I just hope there’s something better to talk about than Mr. Ghetto’s Wal Mart bounce video and Anthony Weiner not knowing how to send messages on his Twitter account.
I am no frills kind of guy and I usually stick to the same things and brands I like. The only exception if my birthday when I will spend a little more on some high end bourbon and a higher quality cigar. I want one of them Cuban Maduros but I think they are still illegal. First I’ll eat, and then I’ll smoke the cigar, and then have a few cocktails before I go to sleep. That may sound like a very boring birthday to some but I’m saving the second line parade and music video for 40th birthday bash.
I want to give a shout out to all my friends, family, and especially my mommy and daddy. I’m out to enjoy the rest of my day.
