Lovely, just lovely. Going back to work after being OFF for 12 days. Isn't WORK a four letter word anyway? And Momma said stay away from 4 letter words, didn't she?
So here I sit at work, trying to remember where I left off. I have a tub of mail, you know the kind they give you at the post office when you've been GONE for a long time. It's time to pay bills and get the draws from the clients. Balance 8 checkbooks and begin the dreaded W-2's.
I had a terrific headache yesterday and stayed home. Told Tom I wanted a week in the Tampa/Sarasota/Nokomis area....just to do nothing! He said when and I said NOW. I had wanted to do this and that and didn't get the time. Guess I could have "bit the bullet" and let the FIL assume we could only be with him for 2 days, but......
He's 80. How many more holidays will there be?
Now that I'm a certified flyer, I can JET off anytime...well, as long as Mr Wallet and Ms Bank Account says so. Hmmmm...weekend getaway? I sat looking at my map of the area, saying to myself "I didn't go here and there and....."
I gotta say...Miss T did an AWESOME job in the airplane. The trip down you could see the fear in her face (I have pictures). She claimed she was "never doing that again" but as the week wore on, she realized it wasn't so bad.
The flight home was bumpier than the ride down...I pointed out to Miss T that there were scattered rain clouds about, and that she had learned enough about clouds to know if they had water in them and we "drove" over them, we'd "bump" just like a car does on the road. She didn't pull my arm off this time! All she wanted was something to drink....when she's nervous, she's thirsty!
Tom? Well waiting for us in the mailbag at home was notice from the Attorney of the new court date of January 20th. Remember he was "appealing" the previous decision. I think he'll lose the appeal especially if he gets a jury with some MADD mothers etc on it.....but, the attorney wanted the sentencing of "1 year no license and probation and $500 fine" in the bag before he would do the appeal.
I think he should take what he got....he could get worse. We'll see.
