34 years

Today is my 34th birthday.  I have such a had time believing that.  I feel so much older than I should. 

The past 34 years have been a roller coaster, with countless experiences that have helped to make me who I am. 

I want so badly to feel younger again and so that’s my goal.  I want to have significantly improved my overall health and fitness by this time next year.

I want to be able to say,  I’m 35 years old today and never felt better.  That would be awesome. 

Today is going to be a pretty busy day.  I have to renew the plates on the van,  try and pay some bills, get Bella to the Vet’s office and make more phone calls than I care to count. 

This year will also break from tradition a little bit as well.  Traditionally,  I get the same thing every year.  For as long as I can remember,  I have always renewed my Xbox Live account on my birthday.  This year will be different, as I no longer have my Xbox 360.   Sniff Sniff….. 🙁

All I want for today is to make it through the day without anything catastrophic happening. I’m hoping that not to much to ask.  I’m even willing to be flexible on what I consider catastrophic.

Now for the warm fuzzy part of this post.  🙂

I want to thank my parents for everything.  I would not be here if it wasn’t for them,  obviously.  I hope that I have been able to use all they taught me in a manner that makes them proud. 

I want to thanks Lizze’s parents for doing such a fine job of raising her.  I can’t imagine what her life would have been like with her biological with her biological family. Thankfully,  they took her into their home and raised her as their own… 🙂

I want to thank my wife Lizze,  for not turning me down when I asked her out.  The last 10+ years have been difficult but I wouldn’t trade them for anything in the world. Well,  maybe a new Xbox 360 😛

Totally kidding Lizze. 

My boys.  My boys are my whole world. The most important moments of my life were watching them being born. Words can’t describe what that felt like for me.  Lizze did so amazing and I’m so grateful.

I also want to thank all of you for helping me keep this blog alive.  Never in a million years would I have imagined being this successful at something.  So thank you for helping make this a reality.  🙂

Well,  here’s to surviving another year.  🙂

I'd send a slice of my red velvet cake, but it probably would get destroyed in the mail!
