This week the nominations for the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences were announced and as I have done for the past 10 years now, I started personalizing the nomination certificates in calligraphy. It's a very large job that consumes my time for about 2 weeks and there's a luncheon as well where the certificates are given out and I also create the name tags for that.
The anticipation and preparation is nerve racking as I have other jobs that need to get finished as well that got held up for one reason or another. Juggling several areas of my life that are demanding has become something that never seems to change but indeed has gotten more intense as I'm getting older...
And, older I'm getting. I'll be 64 in a few weeks and the only good thing I see about getting to this age right now is that next year I can switch to Medicare and reduce my medical insurance. Boy, will that be a big savings.
I'm not doing anything special for my birthday except perhaps use a Christmas gift of a massage and get a pedicure. Ahhh, the simple things in life.
