What does it really mean?

The fact that my sons and daughter love sushi now makes me happy. We went out for my birthday (Beanie was working) but the boys added Eel to the list of sushi they like.  It made me happy to think the days of picky eaters are over. There was a time when we couldn’t go anywhere without slices of American cheese (and thank you very freaking much Kraft, it had to be Kraft American Cheese – she hated the much cheaper store brand and she also hated Velveeta’s slices.)

14 years ago I had to work in Columbus Ohio on Christmas Eve. I ended up having to solve some issues the customer’s mail system was having until midnight and then drove across the state of Ohio, all the way to Bloomington Indiana to celebrate Christmas. My 5 year old daughter was very angry at me about that. To her, missing Christmas eve was a big deal.

Now she has to work on Christmas Eve. The shoe as it were is on the other foot. And sadly or perhaps correctly I feel sorry for her. She has worked a ton this past week, the disadvantage of being in college, and being in retail.

There are so many things you don’t expect in life but sometimes I wonder if in fact we shouldn’t prepare for them. The little things are what cause you to lose faith in the end. Yesterday I lost enough faith in my former employer to wonder if in fact I wasted 15 years there. It’s a sad day when you start to think things like that. That you were in fact, just a number.

Oh well. We move on.

The path to nirvana comes from within.

Next two weeks are stressful/packed full and there are a few extra things I need to work on at the same time so its one of those overload time periods. I may miss a couple of blogs so my apologies in advance.

I talked to a couple of dear friends yesterday – one I talk to all the time and the other I used to talk to more. I realized yesterday that I missed talking with him, so I need to make a point of reaching out more. The old alligator adage fits well (its hard to remember when you are up to your neck in alligators that your original job was to drain the swamp).

First week of book sales are in – its starting to move – which is exciting!!!

If you like the book – pop out to Amazon and write a review!
