...actually, I've been 45 all day (Friday), to be honest.
As far as birthdays go, this one was pretty decent. I had the day off of work, but I still got up at my usual time so that I could go to work with Jessi and our son to the Head Start she works at, and I volunteered there for the morning (it helps with the funding).
After that, we all headed to the local casino for their buffet, which was great. Then, my son and I headed back for home. I was hoping that there'd be some packages there from my eBay purchases, but alas, there were none. So, we let the dogs out for a bit while I wrote a check to deposit in Jessi's account for bill paying and a check for cash for this Sunday's Portland show.
After stopping at the two banks, my son and I headed downtown to the Hands-On Children's Museum, which is his favorite place to go. Unfortunately, I didn't have any singles on me, and all the parking in the area requires dollar bills to pay for parking... and I was starting to feel a bit frustrated by this point, so we headed for home.
Shortly after getting home, I won another eBay auction for Give-A-Show stuff, and paid for it. Setting up our son with a DVD of Go, Diego, Go! episodes (his favorite show), I figured I could lie down on the couch for a bit to rest, and maybe nap.
The nap was not to be, but that's okay, I still felt rested. Jessi came home from work early as a surprise for me, with birthday cards from her and our son -- our son's came with the current Hallmark Superman ornament, while hers came with cash for Sunday's comics show! After a bit, we decided we'd all go to Capital Mall to check out this indoor miniature golf course.
Let me tell you... three-year-olds and miniature golf don't mix real well. Especially when the three-year-old has no clue what golf is about, that you only hit your ball, that you get out of the way of other players' balls, and you don't pick up any ball that isn't yours.
After that, we wandered the mall for a bit, and then Jessi treated us to dinner at Red Robin (I had the Whiskey River BBQ Burger with garlic-parmesean fries -- which were excellent, but after the first six or seven fries I lost the garlic flavor), and then we headed back for home. Putting our son to bed, we watched this week's Biggest Loser, and then Jessi was ready for bed.
And since I wasn't sleepy enough to fall asleep yet, once she was out, I headed into my home office to write this up!
