Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my birthday, I made it one more year by the grace of God! 2018 wasn’t all bad or all good, somewhere in the middle as my dad always says. You’re always in the middle, someone is better off and worse off than you. Just a thought… The best part of 2018 has been the purchase of my home, and the end of almost three years of apartment life after my third and final divorce. Never again.

My adult children are well and safe up north in Michigan and my father is doing well for his advanced age. 2019 needs to see me lose weight and make a couple serious adjustments to my diet. Overall, things are great. Oh, how old am I today? Just 58 years young, there’s more to come so let’s get started!

  8. Hey – many happy returns, John – you young thing, you! And, while I’m about it, Merry Christmas too. Divorce is an expensive business; best not dwell on it (though it’s hard not to – Grrr!!!) πŸ™‚

    • Thanks very much for your kind comment! I really don’t dwell on this much yet it seems inevitable that humans will do this. I call it the persistence of memory. I have to wonder if some humans would delete certain memories if they could? Sorry, no SSD or rotating hard drive here! πŸ˜†πŸ˜¬
