I have the best wife ever! For my birthday present, she got me a 12-lap "Shootout Experience" at the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience at Phoenix International Raceway in November (Groupon is the bomb, she got a great deal, more than 60% off!)
This is not a ride along deal, I will actually get to drive the car solo for 12 laps. I can't wait!
Also, I got word today that a promotion that I've been waiting for at work since April finally came through today. It amounts to a significant increase in pay, with the potential to be 3 times my current salary based on commissions.
All in all it's been a pretty good day.
