Well, it’s official. On Sunday, November 23, I turned the big 3-0. I was born on Thanksgiving, and it seems like my birthday falls on the holiday once every eleven years or so. This year wasn’t that year, and my birthday passed without too much ado. I do move into another competitive age bracket for Xterra, which I think will be a good thing (though I’ve also heard that the 30-34 age group is the most competitive). For the most part, turning 30 wasn’t nearly as traumatic as people make it out to be. In the end, this birthday, like many others, passes by as just another day, and life goes on.
On Saturday night preceding my birthday, Kelli did throw me a wonderful party with close friends here at the house. We had a pretty good crowd of nearly 20 folks, and we all enjoyed a great buffet spread of pulled pork, roasted potatoes, homemade apple sauce, and salad. Thanks to everyone that brought libations…from an assortment of wines, to a great selection of GF beers, including RedBridge, New Grist, and especially Green’s!
