It’s my party, and …

My 45th birthday rolled around this past Thursday. Many thanks to all of you who offered birthday well-wishes, mostly via Facebook. While I was showering after sleeping in, my family set up some birthday decorations in the kitchen. They gave me Lord of the Rings Risk: Trilogy Edition, but since they had to get it by mail, it hasn’t arrived yet. We all had a simple lunch and a long game of Catan Histories: Settlers of America, Rails to Trails together. I took a nice afternoon nap, then took my family to Rubio’s for some tasty fish tacos. My wife and younger son, Nicholas, went back home, and I took my 14-year-old son, Nathan, to a Batman marathon at Regal Cinemas. We watched all three of Nolan’s Batman films, in order, completely oblivious to the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. Nathan and I were back home and asleep by 3:30 AM. I filled up Friday and the first half of Saturday with yard work and errands, but Thursday served as a kind of mini-vacation.
