The big 2-8. I guess that means I am getting close to being old? i dunno. I don't feel old. I mean... I feel older than say - when I was 16... but otherwise life seems to slowly get a little better year after year... normal bumps in the road, but things seem to settle a bit... kids get a little older (though we keep starting that over, lol). Summers come and go - kids go back to school... life has a sense of calm in its chaos. I don't mind getting older. I feel like 47 is going to be my year... or maybe 77... I guess what I am trying to say is that instead of complaining that I am one year closer to 30 - I am going to be thankful that I have one more year under my belt... one more year to say I did it, my family is alive and thriving, business is good, marriage is solid... and here's to many many more.
