So, today is my 48th birthday. It's not one of the milestone birthdays, so I'm feeling neither excessively celebratory or needlessly panicked. It's just a day, as was exemplified by the fact that I had to get up early to open the book store. It was actually snowing somewhat heavily this morning, but I walked in to work anyways. My stubborn New Englander streak showing a bit there.
The morning was very slow, although things picked up a bit in the afternoon after the snow slackened a little. Still, I was relieved of duty and send home at 4:00 PM instead of the scheduled 5:00 PM. I walked back home, although my knees ended up complaining that I should have called for a ride. Oh well.
Back home, I spent some time online and then too a brief nap. In the evening, queenmomcat and I went out to dinner to kind of celebrate my birthday, although the full celebration will wait until next week when we head off to Chicago for an opera and other neat things. For the moment, however, it is time to go to bed. I have tomorrow off again, and as usual I hope to do something productive beyond grocery shopping.
