I was at the Jimmy Buffett concert with a few friends the other night and having a great time so that inspired the name of this post although it’s content has nothing to do with the concert or the song per se. I’m talking about something I’ve implemented here in the Messy household that seems to be helping. I’m hoping it’ll stick and it has to do with 5:00pm.

This entry may be a little less fun and more serious but bear with me.

Mostly for health related reasons but also for some vanity but at this point I’ve have just gotten to a low level of concern and I haven’t been able to translate that into any actual motivation to do something about it. I was hoping at my yearly wellness visit the doctor would say I was ridiculously unhealthy and going to die tomorrow if I didn’t change something about my life because maybe that would have been the kick to the @$$ that I needed but alas I’m still a relatively healthy 35 year old.
