A day of stuff I guess.

First off, Happy Birthday to Mary Jo (Sunday), Mom-in-Law (Monday) and Dad-in-Law today. One big birthday sweep! Weekend was good although we didn’t do much. Weather sucked Friday night so we just stayed in. Jess was gone all day on Saturday so I played basketball and then just did a lot of organizing and playing with the dogs and shopping and stuff like that. Saturday night we went out to celebrate MJ’s birthday which was fun. Jess wasn’t feeling good either so she went to bed early and was out of commission on Sunday. Did some more cleaning on Sunday. Didn’t do much else though until we took out Jess’ mom for her birthday for supper. Pretty unexciting stuff. Monday was basketball day and we pulled off a win, now we have a winning streak.

Seems like lately there has been a lot of changes with people I know. Whether it be a friend and neighbor trying to sell a house or a friend of mine who just bought a house. Whether it be a new job and location for a friend or another friend who is now looking for a new job. Whether it be a wife with two new tooth crowns or a friend looking to redefine a relationship. We are getting to that age where changes become bigger, more expensive and more real. It’s crazy. These are changes that can define people…we spend 18+ years trying to define ourselves and now one decision by someone can change that whole course. Having friends in all different situations makes life that much more interesting. Can I fix those with problems? Can I celebrate those who are celebrating? Can I be happy for and be sad for those who are leaving? Can I balance all those emotions all at once? Is it hypocritical to feel compassion for someone in a bad situation and then turn around and feel happiness for someone who is achieving one of life’s goals and go back and forth? Then when Jess gets home does my perspective change because her emotions to every event can differ from the ones I have? Anyways, today has taken a big toll on my mind. And it’s only Tuesday…

It's amazing what some fresh air can do. One trip to the dog park and I feel better!
