Another Year Older... 34th Year Edition!

So I was going to write a blog post called "Another Year Older" describing the state of affairs, then realized that I've gotten to the point where I blog so infrequently that last year's post with the same name actually fit on the blog homepage.

Been a crazy week. I've been to New Jersey twice in the last week (we drove out for Victoria's PsyD graduation and our wedding anniversary over the weekend, and then I flew back for funeral services for my grandmother late this week). To make things more fun, we have a wedding next weekend meaning I will have traveled from Detroit to New Jersey three times in two weeks.

Went to Windsor yesterday to celebrate my birthday. Had never been to Canada before (despite a failed attempt around 1999 with my cousin and brother). Much like the United States, except all the signs are in both English and French, and there were windmills *everywhere*. Funny how here in the States the energy debate is over coal versus nuclear, while in Windsor it's whether or not to augment the existing windmills by placing them in Lake Huron.

Also, my wife made some kickass red velvet cupcakes.

34 feels old.

Need to spend time today getting caught up on work. They've been very supportive of my situation, but it doesn't change the fact that I'm falling behind on crap and need to get things in order. There was only so much I could do via the corporate email built into my phone.

Will have to get some photos posted from recent activities.
