So, I've caught up to Kevin again.
Kevin would be my older cousin. He's 4 months older. I thoroughly enjoy telling him he's older than me on his birthday every year. But then I always catch up. So, yesterday I caught up. It was a good day. My family and many friends wished me a happy birthday (got to love facebook). We had cake in my office at 9:30 a.m. Why so early? Because I had to leave by 10 to go spend the day in court in New Britain for a tax appeal. We never figured out why I had to be there - we being our attorney and the Town Assessor. But, I was listed as one of the people who had to show up, so I went. It was rather boring, but I was with very nice people. Our attorney used the fact that it was my birthday as pressure to move it along as quickly as he could! Court could have been crappy - but I actually enjoyed the day because of the people I was with. Even from the moment I got out of my car in the parking garage, there were two nice men who saw me, asked right away if I was going to court. When I said yes, they redirected me from the way I was heading, telling me the fastest way to get there. When I got home, A and I got ourselves cleaned up and headed to Fairfield to a restaurant called Paci for dinner. Great food there. We hit traffic on the way, so called the restaurant and very easily moved our reservations back a half hour. We had a terrific meal. I had room for dessert. On the way home, we found gas CHEAP - 3.89 is pretty cheap here right now. All in all, a good day.
