My 49th birthday

I’m 49 today. I did nothing today, which feels like what I should do but is difficult for me. I drank coffee, read news, listened to music, tried to read a book.

My traditional birthday steak dinner and German Chocolate cake:

I had an Optimism Forward with dinner which is soooo good.

I got beer-themed socks, a beer-themed t-shirt, my favorite Molton Brown soaps and shampoos, a cool framed custom map of Seattle and a Marshall amp so I can learn to play music with the kids.

It seems like my 40s flew by. When I started my 40s, Havana was 2.5 years old and a few months from potty-training, Hudson was 1 and just started walking, Eva was more than a year from being born, Illy was still alive, we still lived on Vashon Island and were designing a new house that was never built, my dad had a cancer scare, the world was a year into an economic recovery from the biggest worldwide economic collapse in history and Obama was in his first year of his Presidency.
