3 down, 1 to go... - The Rancho Commons — LiveJournal
Note to self: no whining, no slacking
3 down, 1 to go...
Because I'm off next weekend for Josh's sixth birthday, I had to move my days back in the week. The result was a 4 day weekend of 12 hour nights, and I am feeling it. I work tonight, then I'm off. I am sooo tired. But, it will be worth it to get to go to Chuck E. Cheese with the boys this coming weekend! </sarcasm>

My sister turned 30 yesterday. Happy birthday again! Maybe next year I can actually wish you that ON your birthday, rather than before and after it! I hope 30 isn't bad for you. It wasn't too bad for me, but 40 nearly killed me. I'm one of those people that would definitely rewind the odometer if I had the chance. I believe people who say they have no regrets are liars. If I figure out that rewind thing, I'll let you know.

Off to bed. Sorry to bore you all. Consider this just a place holder for something more interesting later. Hopefully.

Thanks for the well wishes. I hope that you will be able to wish me "Happy Birthday" face to face next year too. How about instead of hoping, I just say...it will happen. If ever I decide to move a hemisphere away again, please remind how much it sucked the first time. I know you all tried to tell me this time, but I have learned a lot and this whole experience has made me set some rock solid goals for my life...none of which include Las Vegas. hehe

30 ain't bad. I can't say what 40 will be like, but I didn't sweat 30. I don't want to age just like the next person, and it is frightening to think about. However, what I really don't want is to reach 40 with as little as I have to show for life at 30. I plan to retire or at least be able to only have to work part time at 40...this is one of those rock solid goals. That is in God's hands...but I plan to work diligently toward that goal.

I definitely have regrets, and if rewinding were an option, I would definitely give it a try. I feel like if I would have had a second chance to change a few things at key points in my life, I would have accomplished so much more by now. For example...I would have begged Mom and Dad to send me to public school when I got kicked out of Sheets. I would have gone to x-ray school or art school straight out of high school. I would finish something. Stuff like that.

Godspeed for the night...have a good rest.
