Spent a lot of today sleeping since I was all night playing my new game Civilization VI. After getting up around 6pm Maria and I went out to Zio's and had a nice dinner. Then we watched some TV. A relaxing day.

Turned 52 today.
Had a great day. Went to the Overland Park Arboretum it was a beautiful day and the trees are turning to fall colors now. After that we went to Cinzetti's and ate lots of food. I puttered around the house after getting home. Put the rain barrels away for the winter and a couple of other things too.

Since it was also Back to the Future day. The day that Doc, Marty and Jennifer went forward in time from 1985 to 2015. When I first saw that movie in the cinema I laughed when I saw the date. No else there did because they didn't know that was my birthday. Things are very different from 1989 when Back to the Future 2 came out and the weird future of 2015 they showed us. I was stationed in England at the time and saw in at the local Newbury cinema. Wow 26 years where has the time gone.

Had a nice birthday today. Went to Cheese Cake factory for lunch with Maria. Had very good over priced food and took some cheesecake (Oreo cheesecake) home to eat later. Went to game store and picked up a copy of Munchkin Panic a fun little board game. Good things for this past year. Diabetes is now under better control. I'm now about 15 pound less than I was last year and I've been continuing to loose weight since getting the diabetes under better control. Continuing to unpack and to down size my stuff. Maria and I are doing well trying to get used to the new area.
Bad thing is didn't get higher paying job that I applied for.
In all not a bad year.

50 years old. Wow. In someways its really hard to believe that I'm this old in others its seems like time has flown to get to this point. Had lunch at Red Robin to get my free burger. The we went to an apple orchard and got some very good cider and other apple based goodies. After a little rest and eating some of the above goodies. We went to the YMCA that we had joined last week after the government shut do got finished. I had signed us up for equipment orientation. I ended up very tired from the work out. So decided to skip eating a big meal out. Maybe tomorrow. Got several calls and lots of birthday greetings on facebook from friends and family. In all a very good day.

Stayed up way to late last night. Didn't make it to church today. Turned 49 today.

Don't have much planned for today. Maria got me a John Byrne page from Ebay. I got a new monitor for my PC since the other ones power supply was failing. Weird to think I'm starting my 50th year today. Not sure what I'm going to do with myself. I hope we find out soon if I got that new job so we can start making plans one way or the other. Also I now have a Facebook account under the name Neal Gilman. So friend me there.

Had my 48th birthday today. Pretty easy going day today. Started with going to give some blood for a lab work for a doctor appointment next week. Then lunch at Applebees. Didn't feel at all well after lunch I think the pepper corn steak was a little too spicy for me. My niece, nephew and little brother called me today to wish me a happy day. Went to dinner at local Italian restaurant with Maria and Todd. It was a fun and relaxing day.

Today was my birthday.
Had a pretty good day only bad spot was having to take one of the cats to the vet. But it had to be done. Other than that had a relaxing day with Maria. She bought me the cutest little owl thing from Japan and let me buy a bigger present. Went to the Olive Garden for lunch. Later I went to pick up my weeks comics from the store and mentioned to Todd that today was my B-day and he invited Maria and I to dinner after he closed the comic shop. Had some nice spicy pizza at Marco's.

It was nice to relax after the past few frenzied days with my Dad here. I have to admit we did get lots of projects done while he was here.
We put up steel jacks to bolster the main support beam and built a partial wall in the basement to also support the main beam. Replaced the aging sump pump with a new more powerful one to hopefully keep the basement dryer. Fixed the sprayer on the kitchen sink. Replaced the old and broken fire alarms with new ones, it is fire safety month after all. Made a banister for the back porch steps. Installed a new doorbell one of those wireless types. Replaced the side door on the garage, including installing new locks. With some of the left over concrete from making the wall in the basement we repaired the crumbling concrete wall behind the garage. My Dad is amazing when it comes to home repairing and he has way more energy than I and he's 70 years old. I really need to get into better shape.

It's my b-day again. Didn't take the day off this year. I think that's the first time in at least 15 years that I haven't. The control tower project is really eating up my time. As a matter of fact I'm working overtime tonight at the tower to oversee a transformer replacement being done by the power company. I'm guessing that it will take at least three hours to do. I have to be here to make sure that all the equipment is working after power is restored. So our plans are to go out sometime this weekend. Hopefully to Fried Green Tomatoes Galena Restaurant for lunch on Saturday.

Turned 45 today. Took today off from work almost wasn't able to. Fortunately for me the cabling project for this week got canceled do to a family emergency with one of the people coming to do the project. I wanted to take the rest of the week off but my boss really wanted me around since I'm currently the only ILS tech not at a school or on vacation this week. Anyway I had a good day today. Woke up late and found my birthday card from my wife waiting for me on my night stand. Went out to one of my favorite dinning establishments for a good lunch. Went to Gamestop with a bunch of old games sold them back for store credit. Ended up getting two new ones. Metal Gear Solid 4 and Bioshock both for the PS3. Both seem like fun games and have gotten great reviews. Went to Borders and used my birthday coupon that they sent me to get the latest boxed The Complete Peanuts collection. After that spent the day relaxing and playing my new games, reading comics and hanging out with my loving Wife.

Don't know any of the rest of that song. Haven't done much but I'm enjoying the day. Returned the shades we got awhile back then we went out for breakfast. Went to Borders after since they sent me a birthday coupon and I figured I need to use it. Bought a sketch book and a How to Draw Manga book and a couple of Eberron novels. For the rest of the day I'll rest and play video games and watch tv. Ah the excitement of a forty third birthday.
