February 16, 2013
It has been two weeks since I last posted. I know that using our Gregorian calendar you have realized that it seems like January 29th was kind of a month ago, but here is the deal. I wrote a post on February 2nd that was nothing short of brilliant. If you had read it, you would have laughed, cried, hugged yourself and then called Pulitzer. However, with a mere 6 words left to scribe, I lost everything. Including my patience. Thusly and therefore, away went that post and nearly our computer.
The main serious point I wanted to make in that post was that if you received an email from me advertising some stay-at-home and make money offer, that was not really from me. I wish I knew how you could work from home and make millions, but I do not. Someone hacked our email account and sent it out to the whole address book. Thank God it was not some virus porn thing. I cannot imagine how many pieces of hate mail I would have received had you gotten a virus that made some guy pop through your computer screen hollering, "WHERE'S YOUR DAUGHTER!"
For those of you not in my address book, I am guessing you are not considering a connection. It's okay, I understand.
As for goings on in our world, here are some updates. We had a wonderful Valentine's Day. CJ and his girlfriend exchanged very nice gifts. With the help of his mom, CJ gave her an owl pillow as his GF really likes owls. I mean, whoooo doesn't. GF gave him a homemade heart-shaped chocolate chip cookie that was awesome. He shared it and may have regretted that decisions as I could not stop eating it. I was looking to see how many bites it took to get to the chocolate chip center.
My coworkers kept asking me what I was getting Beth for Vday and I finally made a sweeping gesture of myself and stated, "she gets to experience this every day." They assured me that I better show up with some flowers, candy, AND jewelry. None of them will be getting raises this year.
In other CJ news, he is doing well at school and in his Jazz ensemble. His PSAT scores have garnered him scores of college recruiting emails. Most of them reference his legacy, but I do not remember the PSAT being around when my dad was in high school. So CJ world is good. His GF is in Vegas baby this weekend playing in a soccer tournament with her select team. When she takes the PSAT next year, every college in America is going to email this young lady to get her to come to their school as a student athlete.
As for Beth, work has been quite stressful as there has been a scandal going on and it has caused an enormous distraction. Please make sure you know what is going on with your teenager and their phone. Privacy rules should not apply.
Finally, for me life is good. I have not gotten a store yet, but I have heard rumors that something may happen soon. In the retail world, "soon" is all relative, but I am still well thought of and have not done anything to affect my status. I even worked a very difficult stretch of days without losing my patience with anyone. It took a lot of Diet Coke, but I did it. So before I lose this post, here it is.
