And other nonsense…
You’ve been listening to me lament about my upcoming 40th birthday for some time now. Thanks for putting up with me. Now that the day has arrived, I have a sense of peace. Well, at least that’s what I’m telling myself.
To celebrate early, we had a wonderful dinner at Tokyo Garden, the local Teppan Yaki steakhouse. They even banged the drum and made me get up and dance to celebrate my birthday. The kids loved it. I went off my diet for the first time in a month, but it was worth it. On that note, I didn’t reach my weightloss goal of 160 pounds, but I did lose 12 and people are even beginning to notice. There is a picture of me and my family on the wall of the restaurant, and even I could tell that my face is thinner.
My 41st year will certainly not be dull. Hell, even my car decided to get into the action and turn over 60,000 miles this morning. Other upcoming events this year:
I begin my 6 month deployment to Iraq.
I get promoted to Lieutenant Colonel.
I get to go to Disneyland (day after tomorrow, in fact)
I get to see the Bat Mitzvah of my cousin’s kid.
We are flying in my Mother-in-Law so my wife and I can have a last fling in Hawaii before I head off to the desert.
I’ll finally get to purchase a Ferrari.
It’s going to be a good year.
