October 29: Someone has been playing a little too much Guitar Hero. It's beginning to infect other areas of his life...
I know what it is.
October 31: It's the glasses that really complete the look. Apparently immortality doesn't have a vision plan.
Okay, they're actually coasters. Since the birth of my children -- who are the oldest -- all the grandchildren who come to play at my in-laws' home are immediately drawn to this little stack of coasters. They are, hands down, the best toy at Grandma's house. And every kid --independently -- has decided that they are cookies.
November 2: Sugar House Moving and Storage in my rear view mirror: One of the best sights I've ever seen.
These are the people who laid me off this week -- after ten years of coming to work every day, not calling in sick, not asking for raises, and doing whatever was asked of me. If I said I wasn't a little bitter, I would be lying...they've taken my means of supporting my family away. But the truth is, I bear them no ill will, I'm not praying for their downfall.
The job I did was a soul sucking, mind numbing job, and I was glad to leave it behind. I don't know what the future holds just yet, but I do believe this may be better for all of us, in the long run.
I'm not sure I'm quite ready for standard time yet. (Fortunately, the 70 degree weather helps to take the edge off.)
