Am I old?

I make the same drive home last night as I always do.  I parked my car in the garage the same way I always do.  I walk in the house the same way I always do.

But..........Something was different....Very different.

The house was still....quiet....calm.....

Was I at the wrong house?  No.  Was  I dreaming?  No.

Well shit, something has to be going on this is not the same house I walk into everynight.

I walk up the stairs and then it all hit me...

The sudden burst of a loud SURPRISE DADDY...rocked me and gave me the biggest smile...

C's coming from every direction....From the left, the right, from behind the couch....T and C4 come from behind the corner.


Man it was the best thing in the world.. A surprise and excitement from my kids are the best thing I could have ever wished for.

The pure joy and smiles coming from the kids.  They were so amped up..

Daddy we got you a present....Daddy we got you a cookie cake.....Daddy we got you donuts...Daddy we got you cookies....(Ok so I am fat ass..shut up about it already)

I jumped up and down and up and down to match their level of joy.

I started acting crazy with them and asked  "What do we eat first?"

"Daddy, you have to eat dinner first, Mommy cooked you a steak and potatoes and veggies" C1 announced.

I sat and began to eat my awesome dinner that T made for me.  I hammered the 2 steaks down, as well as the 2 mini potatoes and the veggies never stood a chance..

Then after the kids asking me every 2 minutes and me shoving food into my face as fast as I could, we decided to dive into the cookie cake....

The kids put a candle in each, I wonder if them putting in 4 candles means they think I am 40.  Nah, C1 already put on the card he made for me that I was a nice and ripe 38.

We ate the cookie cake and then it was time for the fashion show.  No not the underwear that they got me, my nice new boxer briefs that keep the boys in their positions and some nice plain white t shirts.

What I did model was a nice really thin (cotton I think) t shirt (blue) that I will wear in Disney.  It was very cool and I put it on and entered the kitchen singing

"Im too sexy for my shirt"

With the kids laughing at me now, I knew it was time for the show to be over.

All I have to do now is start working out again so I can make sure I look good in the shirt. (i think i can, i think i can, i think i can)

I have to say I had a really good birthday and the only thing that would have made it better was if it had been on a Saturday or Sunday, so I could have been with the kids and T all day long.

I have done alot in my 37 years of life.  Been alot of places, seen alot of things.  Done my share of bad things.  Done my share of good things. But what is funny is that as the older I get, only one thing makes me really happy on my birthday now.....the smiles on the C's faces when they tell me Happy Birthday.

Dont fool yourself.  Just cause I am 38, I can still hit the 3, run as fast as you, and do all the stuff I could do while I was in my 20's.  Only difference is, the next morning I am sore as shit.

So with today being the first day of being 38, I am going to see what I can do to be a little happier and alot more loving. 
"My next 30 years"
by Tim McGraw

I think I'll take a moment, celebrate my age
The ending of an era and the turning of a page
Now it's time to focus in on where I go from here
Lord have mercy on my next thirty years

Hey my next thirty years I'm gonna have some fun
Try to forget about all the crazy things I've done
Maybe now I've conquered all my adolescent fears
And I'll do it better in my next thirty years

My next thirty years I'm gonna settle all the scores
Cry a little less, laugh a little more
Find a world of happiness without the hate and fear
Figure out just what I'm doing here
In my next thirty years

Oh my next thirty years, I'm gonna watch my weight
Eat a few more salads and not stay up so late
Drink a little lemonade and not so many beers
Maybe I'll remember my next thirty years

My next thirty years will be the best years of my life
Raise a little family and hang out with my wife
Spend precious moments with the ones that I hold dear
Make up for lost time here, in my next thirty years
In my next thirty years

That's so sweet. Glad you had a great birthday. You know you are telling mainly women that you can run as fast as them, right?! Just sayin'! Happy Birthday!!

Happy birthday man! 38? Dang. I tell you what I do to help with such high numbers. If someone asks me how old I am, I only answer with the number in the "ones column". So you'd be "8" That way its up to them to decide if you're in the 20s 30s or 40s...and it just sounds better. I'll be 5 in September! Can hardly wait!
