I wish you had the day off, but that's not the way it is for us, yet. I am glad that you had two days off before today, roast turkey, long walks in the woods with your best pal Riley and naps together on Riley's dog bed. All the stuff you love to do. We even had pie.
This has been a better year for you, I think. You enjoy the work you are doing, are valued for it and, I hope, the time spent at home is relaxing. After you get the "honey do" list done, that is. You have your dog, finally. And you have me, for better or worse.
So, Happy Birthday and I hope your bowl today and in the coming year is filled with contentment. You've filled that bowl with adventure, travel, hard work, worry, frustration and even anger in past years. I think contentment would be lovely right about now.
