OK I’m over my cranky Friday. Just felt like complaining yesterday. Not really entitled to because life is treating me well, but I did anyway. Such is life. Today was great though. Time with a best friend, a Maryland basketball game and victory. An evening at home with my better half. What’s not to like. Plus its the kickoff of Spring Training.

I find the more I struggle with living not in the moment, the more difficult life becomes. When I start worrying about the past or future my mind gets off on the wrong track. I start worrying about events coming up. Work, bills, responsibilities and many more start clouding my mind. Or I start to rehash what has past. So today I just focused on having a good time. And a good time was had.

Random Thoughts of the Day

I had to get a new barber after 24 years with the same guy. Change is hard. I actually thought about letting my hair grow again. It is still somewhat appealing to me. Not to my better half though who hated my long hair. So off to the chopping block I went.

I saw someone yesterday and I wish I had stopped and asked if we knew each other because she smiled so when she passed and then I told my better half I wonder if I knew that woman who was sitting behind me and she said that she was smiling at her also. Missed opportunity. Won’t happen again.

I’d like to hear more from the school band at Maryland games and less of the techno music. But that is probably because I’m older.

One of my fears. That I will run into someone who was in my life at some time and I might not remember them or the events. And the older I get the more that panic sets in.

I’m contemplating eating right.
