Well, my birthday was awesome. Probably the best I have had in a while, just because we were AWAY! Even two days in a dinky, cheap hotel is pleasant when a person does nothing except relax. We, fortunately, managed to upgrade from dinky to really nice.
We spent the weekend relaxing and gambling. We paid for the hotel and gas, but managed to gamble for many hours, eat and drink and came home $50 up from the amount we took with us. Can't complain at all!
If this year is as great as this birthday... WOW!
