Less than one week until August 1st and the official kickoff of the Year of Celebration. Okay, so we’re doin’ this.
This whole thing kind of went public before I was fully prepared. The original plan would be to get a few posts in the can (is that an acceptable blogger expression?) and then put it out to the universe. But because I wasn’t paying full attention when I linked my Facebook account to the site, my last post automatically posted to my Facebook page and suddenly I was out there for all to see. If that’s the way the universe is going to play this, I can only play along. So hello world, it’s me Dan.
Lola also shared my post too which proved to be a positive ego boost. We know a lot of fun people who seemed to be very supportive of this endeavor. That feels good (and thank you). Lola is of course my biggest supporter and I am lucky to have her with me on all this. She’s a fun person to celebrate with.
As I gear up for this to begin, I am getting a little consumed by where this will go. I really don’t know. Plus I have questions too:
- Do I get a Mulligan or two? 365 days is a lot. I may need a break. But if I take a Mulligan, I am more apt to take more (which makes me a bad golf partner).
- Is celebrating someone’s birthday on a day a celebration or do I stick to celebrating the “official” holiday?
- On my traveling days for work, how the hell am I going to do this?
I’ve looked ahead and I have a pretty good idea on how I’m going to celebrate days 1 through 4. It’s an aggressive start, but a good start, I think. Does anyone have a Raspberry Cream Pie recipe they recommend? This is the leader in the club house so far: Raspberry Cream Pie.
Oh yeah, I have a Facebook page now for this. You can follow along HERE.
