Back to the future

Yes, today is my birthday, 37 trips around the sun.  Or as my grandpa would say, 37 “years of age.”  I was busy in the work retreat all week so I am a little behind on these entries.  I hope to catch up soon, so plan to see some back-dated entries for the days that I have missed this week.

I woke up this morning to a dozen or more birthday greetings on Facebook, to say nothing of email greeting, and cards and well-wishes I received yesterday.  Its a reminder of how lucky I am to have so many good friends and family, and that’s a nice think to think about as you tick off another year.

Today, I’m really just looking forward to getting back home and seeing Kelly.  My flight is at 9:30 am (Pacific) and I’m scheduled to arrive in the Washington area around 5:30 pm.  The car to the airport is picking me up at 7:45 am.  I upgraded my seats (it’s an A320, so first class is a really small–a total of 8 seats I think) but at least I can stretch out a bit.  I was going to try and do some work on the “March” story but I may instead try to finish reading Traffic.  Only a few days left in the month and then April begins my usual Isaac Asimov month, which I am really beginning to look forward to.
