I am heading to Washington, D.C. for my birthday!  I get to spend several days with that little cutie and her parents.  Whee!!  I am so excited!

There definitely will NOT be another trip to the Air & Space Museum.  I have seen it at least 3 times, although it might be 4.  I’ll have to check out what’s going on in case I need to entertain myself for a day.  I’m not too worried about it right now.  All that has been confirmed is that I’m going to D.C.  There rest will be figured out later.

Destination Unknown

Me on my 30th birthday

My 33rd birthday is this year.  I’m dreading it.  I was fine with turning 30, in fact I threw myself a party at one of my favorite local restaurants.  I invited my family and friends to celebrate with me.  I remember how happy I was that evening.  30 was pretty damn great.  I’m not feeling that way about 33 at all. I commented to my mother about this and she said, “well it is one-third of 100.”  I suppose that means she thinks I’ll live to 100.  Or she was just showing of f her math skills.

I started thinking about how I could change that.  What is that I love to do that I could perhaps do on my birthday?  I realized the answer was simple.  I could go somewhere. Perhaps I could even manage to see the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans in one year.  Hell, it could be in one season.  This landlocked child of the sea, would love that.  Or I could make 2 trips to the Atlantic.  Or head to various destinations down south.  Or head north.  Or southwest.  Or northeast.  Or…actually I might be out of destinations at this point.

Obviously, this holds a lot of appeal. I have friends all over the country.  It shouldn’t be too difficult to find a place to crash, the question will be where and can they accommodate me on the very specific weekend before my birthday? For while I want to travel for my birthday, I’d like to still celebrate with friends.

Beach vacation on the Atlantic Ocean has been booked for this summer. A week of sleeping when I’m tired, eating when I’m hungry and flinging myself into the sea everyday.
