If today were my last day...I would have wanted to plan it out ahead of time. So for the sake of this post, let's pretend everything was planned.
First I would wake up in the morning and have breakfast with my family. My wife would make me her Cinnimon French Toast with some Oberweis chocolate milk.
I would then load the wife and kids up and go out to a water park.
I would have lunch brought in ahead of time from Avanties in Bloomington IL. I would have one of thier famous Gondolas. God I love that sandwich.
After the water park I would want to spend some quality time with my little girls, tell them home much I love them and how I will always be watching over them.
Before dinner I would have a deep tissue massage scheduled and a short 20 minute session in the floatation tank.
After I was done with the massage and floatation, I would have dinner from Hooters A(Buffalo Chicken Sandwich)with the family at home.
After dinner, me and the family would attend a cubs game (and they better win on the day I die). I would buy my girls cubs hats so they have one last thing to remember me by and ensure them being cubs fans the rest of thier life.
After the game I would cross the street to the Cubby Bear where I would be performing a set with my band until 10:30. I would drive home from the show and arrive home just about a half hour before midnight where I would write each of my girls a letter, kiss them both on the head and go to bed where I would die next to my wife.
Make amends to the ones I have hurt (as long as this does not hurt them). Then, create precious memories with my children so that they can remember happy times in their life and carry this forward with them into theirs. Hoping, they would then create and share their memories with their children.
I'd live my day like it was any other day. I have no regrets and the people I love hear it from me all the time. When I'm gone I'm gone and can't take anything with me. I can only hope I've left pleasant memories for those that love me.
Of course, if I knew it was my last day I'd spend it with my family and friends and I'd eat all the foods that aren't good for me.
This morning, my daughters, grandkids, and I are making our annual Christmas Eve visit to a local nursing home to pass out candy. The residents love seeing children. Then we're taking my elderly aunt out for lunch. Then...
