Here is raising my glass to a wonderful New Year!
…What, its April. Whats going on?
Well, for those new readers of mine, I celebrated my 34th birthday over the past weekend. April 6th to be exact!
I wont spend too much time talking about the weekend, even though it was so incredible, instead I will be talking about my coming year, and some goals that I have been setting.
Last weekend started out with a bang, and a busy cyclone of things to do, to get ready for the weekend, and so that I could just take the 3 days off, and not worry about anything but having a great time!
Friday night started out at my favorite bar. The Honor Bar in Emeryville, CA. There was
about 10 of us hanging out, having a couple of drinks, enjoying awesome food and playing pinball! This was just waiting around until 10:15pm when my most anticipated movie of 2013 was starting, The Evil Dead.
I had to wake up early on Saturday, to get some things done for the BBQ that I was having. I had previously made sausage filling, I just needed to stuff about 25# into casings for the party. Then packed up my stuff, and drove to Moraga Commons Park for a day full of family (my dad has the same Bday, and this was the first year in at least 6-7 that we have hung out ON our birthday), about 30 of the most awesome people who I know, incredible BBQ potluck lunch, drinking, bocce ball, and disc golf. What a BLAST!
Now, MY New Year. I have many plans for this year. Most of you may know that I am working on opening my restaurant. It has been started, and I have been working on it for a couple of months now, but this week it is really beginning. For my birthday, I received a bit of seed money so that I can get the LLC registered. I will also be able to get it registered with the government, the trademarks, the state and federal tax ID number, and a business license.
This is so exciting! It is really happening! When I opened the check at my party, I cried. I am still crying now! Just thinking about it, I get knots in my stomach. I wrote in the past about “ass puckering” goals. Well, this really is one. I was crying happy tears, but I was also crying tears of fear. Just thinking about it really happening makes my stomach hurt.
I know this time will pass, yet the voice in my head keeps asking if I am in to deep. Thankfully I have a great support system that is always there to help me remember that I am awesome, and that I can accomplish ANYTHING that I want!
Here is to a Happy New Year!
