The Sledgehammer – Version 2.0

Old? Yes. Decrepit? Maybe.

Well OK, maybe not decrepit just yet, but I’m definitely getting there on the “old” part.  Today I turn 30 years old, and with such a chronological milestone comes the usual pondering of the circumstances that got you to this point.  To be honest, I’m pretty sure that there are things I could have done better over the years, but all things considered, things have actually gone pretty well up to this point. 

Sure, there’s a few things I could use to fix, but those are just minor things like actually folding laundry every once in a while (I don’t care to admit how long it’s been since there wasn’t a pile of laundry on the floor here,) not eating quite so much garbage and getting away from contracting and into a more secure form of employment, but there’s still time to deal with those.  There’s also the pesky little problem of still being single at age 30, which I’m still working on doing something about (sort of), but I suspect that if nothing else, that would take care of the laundry problem (or rather, force me to take care of the problem myself…)  For the time being, I still have my health, whatever I’ve been trying to pass off for good looks for the last decade or so, and I’ve managed to remain self-sufficient for a number of years now, so I can’t complain (but, as Joe Walsh reminded us, sometimes I still do.) 

For the most part, I didn’t do anything special for my birthday, aside from a bit of cake and getting Happy Birthday sung to me a couple of times (which is nice because it’s the one day during the year that I can get away without having to sing that blasted song.) It does sound like some sort of party is in the works, although that won’t happen until a couple of weeks from now when Heather and Brooks are in town.   Either way, l sure hope that I can get things figured out sometime within the next thirty years or so.  A bit sooner than that would be nice though…


  1. Happy Birthday!!!! I hope you had a great birthday. P.S. who is Joe Walsh?

  2. Joe Walsh (no relation to any of the Walshes in this family, as far as I know) is an old rock singer, who most notably performed with the Eagles. The line above comes from the song Life’s Been Good.

  3. Happy Birthday! And thanks for reminding me that the big 3-0 is just around the corner for me as well… haha.

    I hope you have a great day, though! I think you should do something to surprise YOURSELF. After all, you only turn 30 once, right? :)
