Happy Birthday, to me.

This time, it's #33 (no, that's not a hashtag...)

Let me rephrase, in non-Twitter lingo: Birthday Thirty-Three.

What am I going to do?

Well, probably nothing too extravagant, by extravagance's standards. Birthdays have passed the point of really being all celebratory, especially those that fall in the middle of a week. As it happens, I've taken some vacation days at work and am currently not obligated to focus on the real job. This totally wasn't designed to coincide with my birthday, it just happened to work out that way.

Woke up to a blood sugar of 104 - which was an outstanding start. Made myself a bold and spicy blood mary - because I can. Did some writing, scanned some headlines, and took the dog for a walk. Other than that, I'm tacking some personal projects, some home tasks, and whatever else might need to happen. I have a Diabetes Youth Foundation of Indiana board meeting this afternoon. Not much else on tap.

Oh, but it is WEDNESDAY, so that means... A birthday edition of #dsma!!!!! Now, THAT is exciting!

So, there's that. Maybe I should have a cupcake, too!

The possibilities are endless.

Another year, another lap around the sun. Let's see what this pair of 3s brings on. Hopefully, it's just one part of a full deck.

Are you taking vacation days to avoid the chaos called the Super Bowl?
