To Train a Cat.. Thoughts on turning 28

Also known as two years from 30.  28 Although it may not seem like it is a pivotal year.  It is really the wake up call to 30.  When you are 27, you fake like you are still in your mid twenties.  At 28 you have no choice.  At 28 many of us are gearing up for our reunions.  Even if you aren’t going, 10 years is enough to think about what we have done since high school.  Some of us were early starters, some goofed off, some procrastinated, and everyone has a different idea of success. 

Today, while it is not yet my birthday, I received my birthday surprise and we added to the family.  With a cat.  His name is Griffin and in a word he is fantastic.  10 lbs of sweetness and love, as he jumps in my lap.  Having fur kids is great.  I think the real ones will be okay but these guys are pretty cool.  I am in a house of guys.  Much like most of my life.  For 18 months we have been dog people and now bringing a cat is challenging.  You can train them to pee in the right spot but that is about it. 

I worry that at 28 – I am hard to train.  There is so much I still want to do and as amazing as it has been to see promises and dreams realized, there is still more.  There are things for myself and things for others. 

I turn 28 on Thursday and I want to have a list of things I would like to do.    If you have any suggestions, let me know.

Now Griffin will perform his greatest trick of sleeping in my lap.
