August 30, 2011: Twas the Night Before My Birthday...


Well, here comes... the last year of my thirties!  August 31 is the big day.  I remember entering a pretty grueling personal development  training course in 2002, just into my thirties, wanting to become the man in my thirties I hoped I could be.

Boy, I sure had NO IDEA what kind of ride I was in for!

Got married
Became a homeowner
Went back to school
Moved to California
Had Ali
Started my own company
Had Bella
Wrote a book
Wrote this blog
Closed my company
Lost Bella
Joined PUCK
Started my company again
Had Julian


What do you think I might cram into the last year? ;-)

Rather than posting a comment, would you drop a dollar in the hat and click on the Chip In box on the right?  More than anything, I just wish I could transfer my birthday to Bella, so she could have it.  Since I can't do that, my next wish is to give other EB kids as many birthdays as possible.  I believe in my heart the fastest way to this is through continuing to support University of Minnesota.  They are the closest to the finish line.  Will you continue to help me support them?  I know email is free, blogs are free, facebook birthday wishes are free.  Think if you were going to send an old fashioned paper birthday card in the mail.  You might spend 2-3 bucks on the card and postage.  How about save a tree and a kid at the same time?  LOL.  Alright.  Enough.  Thank all of you that have contributed and will contribute.  Much gratitude.

Also, keep your fingers crossed as tomorrow night we find out if PUCK gets a FREE charity event hosted by the Anaheim White House.  They are giving away 12 charity luncheons in 1212, and we are in the running!   We have to attend a cocktail reception at the restaurant tomorrow night where they will announce the winners, so I'm taking my mom with me since Ang has to still stay put with the J-Man.  It's  roughly a $4,000 value.  The facility will provide staff, facility, and meal for free for your event so your charity can make the much needed profit on the event and not have it eaten by those items.  I hope that me telling them in advance that tomorrow's announcement event is on my birthday helps our cause!  LOL.

Life at home with Julian is sweet.  He sleeps, eats, pees, and poops like a champ.  He's as cute as a button, and though considered big at birth, still seems like such a little peanut!  Momma is positively glowing. Ali is burning through all kinds of energy at school.  Nanny is cooking up a storm!  Like I said, life is good.

God night.

Ah, and last but not least, Bella giving her famous scowl!
