Another year passes....

A quarter of a century. As of yesterday, that is now how old I am. Does it seem old? No not really. I still feel like I'm 12 years old and ready to have a good time. Of course that is only when I'm not thinking like an adult and having to pay the bills and make sure the house is in order.
My birthday weekend went well. We took a short trip to a great sub shop called Cheba Hut. This was a place that I used to get lunch at years ago and have been craving it ever since. These are not your normal Subway or Blimpie subs, they are great tasting unique toasted subs. Definitely a favorite in my book. Was it some gourmet birthday dinner? No, but it was wonderful.
So what did I get for gifts you may be wondering (or not wondering)? Well, my family got me some gift cards and my wife's father got me the Karate Kid movies box set. Talk about a sweet gift. My wife knows me well and picked me up a Goonie t shirt. Another great gift.
To wrap up my birthday, I took the day off and ran some errands. Errands that included taking Rylan to the pediatrician for his checkup. He checked out great. The other errand was going to the dentist and getting a checkup and cleaning. I'll admit, I haven't been to the dentist in a very long time and I paid for it. I now need to schedule an appointment for a root canal and multiple cavity fillings. Damn me for never taking the time to go see the dentist.
I am anxious to see how Rylan and my wife celebrate my birthday next year. I don't know how they can top this year though. A Goonies t shirt and a treasure chest cake, you can't beat that!
