Another year older today and definitely feeling it. As I mentioned yesterday, I seem to be getting slower with less energy. I think my old age is finally catching up with me. Seriously tho, I'm not sure what's going on.
I think part of it is that Bam, my pup, has been really restless around 3 or 4 am. She's crated at night and when she moves around a lot I wake up, as I'm a really light sleeper. She's been having bad allergies this year, so she starts scratching in the middle of the night. Or sometimes she just wants me to let her out of her crate, so she paws at the door or whines. Argh! I need a good nights sleep dog! Poor thing, tho, I feel bad that she's so itchy.
Got some cool presents for my birthday including an iPhone and roses (from Jeff of course), a happy birthday message on the phone (from Spencer), and a DVD, running stuff and a huggy Jesus stuffed doll, "Have you hugged Jesus today" (from Tina ~ that one is a long story).
There was also sad news today. I've mentioned Miles a couple of times before, a young man battling cancer who has an awesome blog about his experience. He passed away early this morning. He was just days away from his 19th birthday. Working at a biotech company that is focusing on oncology drugs, I understand that it takes a really long time to develop new therapies and the chances of success are really small, but I wish things would progress so much faster. But then I'm sure that I'm only one of many with that wish.
