Back to work this morning and back to Calgary Transit. The transit system is a good one and it actually doesn’t take me too much longer to get downtown than when I drive, but, I hate the crowds. The bus normally isn’t that full but the train is quite nuts. It will be nice when they add on the fourth car – not sure when that is scheduled for though.
So, I have decided that I am going to apply for a loan for my Jeep now to pay for the new engine and I will hope that some or all of the cost will be covered once it goes to arbitration. I am not sure how long that process is, but really, I can’t just have it sit for the next several months not doing anything.
Tomorrow is my birthday. I will be 41. A lot happened last year. I should have had a mid-life crisis but I don’t think I did. If I did, I didn’t buy anything cool like a sports car…
It will be a low-key event I think. I have no plans but that’s ok. All I really ever do for my birthday is go for dinner with friends and family. In the past, I have had what I called a “Birthday Festival” – it started the Friday before my birthday and ended the Sunday after. Last year, I decided it was the last festival that I would have – for myself. Sort of a greedy event, but, what the hell. So, this year, just my birthday. Did I mention it’s tomorrow?
