Two birthdays later


I dunno.

I used to love every birthday.  It was “my special day” and no matter what year…how old I got, what situation I was in – that was my day to celebrate.

Don’t get me wrong – I totally understand that the alternative to having a birthday is not what I’m looking for – things are just different now.

I mean, now I don’t get any special daddy things – he was always kinda clever with his method of wishing happy birthday, or hiding cards, or…well, just being dad.

I thought last year would be the hard one.  But no.  This year isn’t much better … and to top it off, it’s raining so that always puts me in a wonderful mood.

I should be ecstatic.  I’m 50, I’m married to someone I love fiercely.  I have a great job, I’m starting my own business too…but geez.  No dad really makes me blue.

This seems to be a blog of two line paragraphs.  Except now.

So, Happy Birthday to me – and, well….not.
