After spending most of my adult life firmly entrenched in the rat-race, I've decided to "Back 'er Down" and focus on the more simple, important things in life.

Backing 'er waaaay down today!
Yesterday was was a day in which "back 'er down" was nowhere to be seen. After an event for work I finally got in bed around 2 AM. I was greeted by the kiddos at 6 AM. We left for family pictures around 9 AM. Drove to South Carolina for a couple of hours and took some great pics with the wife's family. Loaded up again with the oldest son and beat it back to Statesboro, GA for a birthday party at 1:30 PM. We bowled, played laser tag, played arcade games, etc for over three hours. Took it to the house, got a quick shower and pulled out again at 6 PM. went back to South Carolina to drop off the oldest son. (Wife and little one had stayed.) Hung out and ate dinner and headed for home once again. Finally got showered and in bed around 11 PM. Geez Louise! What a day!
Today though is going to be way slower. In fact it will be one of the laziest of the year. For a race fan like myself today is the biggest racing day of the year. At 8 AM the Grand Prix of Monaco will go green. This is the most prestigious race on the Formula 1 calendar. Around Noon the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 will be on the tube. Finally later in the afternoon NASCAR's longest race, the Coca Cola 600 will cap off the evening. This guy is watching them all! I'm not sure that I'll actually do anything constructive at all today. I might go outside and pick beans between Monaco and Indy, but I'm not going to get really motivated about it.
