6:30 AM

Another trip around the sun. Another candle. Another year down. Why am I up at 6:30 AM?

Happy birthday to me.

Thanks for being here, I’m glad to have you around. I’m a little more than halfway there, so stick around for more of the same nonsense you’ve come to expect.

This is also the first day of a stretch of time off from work for me. I figured between my birthday, our anniversary, and a family vacation next weekend… what the heck. Why not. I’ll go back to work on the 27th, whether they want me to or not.

Here ’em singin’ happy birthday
Better think about the about the wish I make
This year gone by ain’t been a piece of cake
Everyday’s a revolution
Pull it together and it comes undone
Just one more candle and a trip around the sun


I’m just hangin’ on while this old world keeps spinning
And it’s good to know it’s out of my control
If there’s one thing that I’ve learned from all this livin’
Is that it wouldn’t change a thing if I let go


No you never see it comin’
Always wind up wonderin’ where it went
Only time will tell if it was time well spent
It’s another revelation
Celebrating what I should have done
With these souvenirs of my trip around the sun


I’m just hangin’ on while this old world keeps spinning
And it’s good to know it’s out of my control
If there’s one thing that I’ve learned from all this livin’
Is that it wouldn’t change a thing if I let go


Yes I’ll make a resolution
That I’ll never make another one
Just enjoy this ride on my trip around the sun
Just enjoy this ride

Until it’s done
