Day two of being 29 was equally relaxing as the first. There was also a lot of recovery that happened from the bonfire. It was apparently way more fun than I remembered.
I was supposed to do coffee with a friend who forgot to write our “date” down in his calendar. As a result, I rolled over and went back to sleep after not receiving a confirmation text message that he was awake.
It ended up being a blessing in disguise to be able to lounge around and not have to take on the responsibility of getting out of bed before noon. I didn’t do anything until mid-afternoon at which point I had to get ready to go meet my family for the annual birthday dinner.
It was a great evening sharing dinner at Montana’s. I even earned a $20 gift card from them after our server made an error on our bill that I didn’t notice until after we had paid. The food was delicious and the time shared with my family was priceless as always.
My youngest foster brother then invited me to join them at his lacrosse game. We all piled into the truck and headed off to Fort Richmond. It was amusing trying to give my parents, who live outside of the city on a farm, instructions on how to drive in the city on multi-laned roads that add and delete lanes without much notice.
We ended up taking a bit of a scenic tour around the University of Manitoba since my instructions weren’t clear enough about which lane my dad needed to be in. The important part is we made it to the arena without getting into an accident.
I only stayed through the first period of the game since I was tired from being old and staying out the night before past 10pm. I got to see my brother score a goal before I departed, so that was pretty cool. The score was 2-0 when I left so I’m assuming they won.
So far I have had two quality days as a 29 year old. If things keep up like this, it is going to be an awesome year. Stay tuned for more adventures.
