The Last One
2007-12-18, 3:56 p.m.
No, not the last blog entry. Thatís disappointing to some, Iím sure, but youíll just have to deal with it. No, today is my last birthday. Well, the last birthday I choose to recognize. Today, at 7:45am (while at work, ugh!) I turned exactly 49. And thatís enough I think. So next year, instead of turning some "other" number, Iíll be 49 with one year of experience. Iíll just perpetuate that counting system for as long as I can. Itíd be cool to get to 49 with 51 years experience. Looks like Iím not quite half way. Better settle in for a long trip.
Today I get to be home in the afternoon, waiting for the &^#Q$ Dish network guy to get here and upgrade our receiver to HD. ďHeíll be there sometime between 12pm and 5pm.Ē, says the voice on our answering machine,. Well, Iíve had lunch, cut fudge, cut those raspberry streusel bars (oh my Ė they turned out VERY nice), conference called in to a work meeting, killed brain cells playing solitaire and discovered that I didnít save the entry I started at work this morning. So Iím faking it. Can you tell? Should I moan & scream more?
3:43pm and no Dish dude. Iím bummed. I have other things to do, and I want this service deal finished. Got my birthday dinner to cook Ė itís simple Ė Bolognese sauce, rigatoni, tossed salad, roasted garlic batard. I donít even have to chop the mirepoix thatís going in the sauce.
I should make some phone calls regarding an Al Anon meeting Iím putting together. Need to confirm the meeting place & time. Some folks know, but I need to spread the word. Weíre electing a new representative for the district that covers the western 1/3 of our county Ė it really needs to be well attended.
Got the regular meeting to attend tonight too. And I still have real live actual work things to get to, not to mention more cookies to make. Oops. And some presents to wrap before ďsomeoneĒ gets home. Better run. Canít be blowing a Christmas surprise now . . .
