Last night I went to the Avalanche hockey game. It was the first time I have been out of Craig without a chaperone. Let me tell ya, it felt great. I felt free. I was thinking about the feeling of being free today. I wondered what does it mean to be free. Is it a state of mind? Is it actually require and act? After it being on my mind today, I am at the conclusion that it is a state of mind with a vehicle. You can be free, but unless your mind gets you there, you will never be free. Fortunately for me, I was able to feel free last night — the first time in two months. I guess I was taking for granted my freedom before this mess. This day and age, I guess it is hard to recognize our freedom. I should have looked a little harder.
Erika showed up tonight and I have a smile ear to ear. I absolutely love having her here. She brightens this place like the sun, I am sure I have said it a million times. Seeing her makes me feel free.
Today was a good day. I am trying a new back rest for my chair. It does not have the correct side support I need, so I get the feeling I am floating in my chair. I have to use it for the weekend. Darn it.
This weekend is my birthday and I struggling with it. Before this, I had dreams of skiing in Canada or some other kind of trip. I guess I am going to have to keep dreaming and focus on the future. The “party” this weekend should be nice. I never thought I would have a 30th without beer. I will admit I did have a sip of beer last at the hockey game. For a Coors Light, it tasted pretty damn good.
I am going to end it here. Erika gets all my attention tonight. Thanks for reading. Thanks for the support.
Before I forget: I am picking the Colts for the Superbowl. Erika’s Dad lives in Indiana and I have to be on his good side.
