You may remember my post When 35 Years Old You Reach, Look As Good You Will Not. If not, go read it, I'll wait, I'm not going anywhere. Welcome back, now go away again and read Part II. I get nervous sending people away from my post, I'm never sure if they will return or not but I see you made it back just fine. What I didn't tell you about was the early warning system.
Without fail, a few days before Christmas my body starts telling me that I am going to be a year older in a month. I start getting aches I've never had before, this year my left shoulder started aching and I haven't been able to do anything to stop it from hurting. My lower back has stiffened up and my right leg hurts like I strained it hiking or something...I haven't gone on a hike in two months. This year on top of the aches and pains I've increased my hair output. I've told you about the rogue hair in the eyebrow and that I have to shave my left ear but this has increased dramatically, like I need to fix that shit twice a week now.
Last year I turned 35 at the Boston Museum of Science with fifty of my closest friends under ten years old. I took the Cub Scout Pack there for an overnight and it was fun. I slept on the floor of the museum and heard snoring all night long by other adults. I was treated to a wonderful breakfast of a granola bar and yogurt after being woken up by one of my Leaders telling me their kid puked all over the sleeping area so my birthday started off at 4:00 AM.
The following day I went to visit my Mom in the hospital where she proceeded to tell me that I hate her and I wished she was dead because I was keeping her there. Those were the last things she said to me before she passed the next day.

I am not doing any resolutions this year either. I've been down that road, went off the cliff and was released from the hospital. I am going to start a Biggest Loser contest at work though, it's not a resolution to loose weight, there's cash prizes so it's purely selfish. I did this a few years ago and dropped sixty pounds and I have been pretty successful keeping it off (within 10-13 lbs) so I am pretty confident I can do it again. Wish me luck!
