It's a rainy cool, gray day here, and according to my mood, perfect! Have y'all ever had a fellow employee out and out lie to your boss to get you into trouble? Why are people that way? It always surprises me when it happens. I'm not sure what they're hoping to gain. Oh well! Two more years and I can retire, I hope!
On to better things! My daughter, who just went through a divorce, had her first "date". I wouldn't really call it a date, they met for a drink. She was excited as well as anxious as it had been twelve years since she went out with anyone but her ex. This guy sounds like a nice guy, though she said she wanted to deal with her feelings before she searched for someone to be serious with. I applaud her for that, because if you can't live with yourself, how can you live with someone else. Of course, having been there and not taking my own advice, I can speak from experience.( lol) You ever notice how easy it is to give advice?
My daughter, Sean and Shelby
My daughter and I are the best of friends. I admire her, she's doing what she's always dreamed of, she's a construction project manager for a college in Oklahoma. She's always been a physical person in that she loves sports and building things. Her idea of having a good time is painting a room or the project she just finished, painting her kitchen cabinets. This project took several months as she had to take the doors off the frames, sand, prime, paint and shelack or something like that. Now me, if I do a project, I want it completed in a day. Take for instance a project I started at 7:45 PM yesterday, a project that I was told would only take ten minutes. Replace the ballcock on my commode. I did fine draining the water out of the tank, did fine removing the "thingey" to release the tube the brings in the water to the tank. Even placed a towel in the tank to remove the remaining water in the tank. Then I get to another "thingey" that screws up to the tank between the other thingey and the tank. I could not loosen this thingey! I broke stuff to get it out, it's still there! Thankfully I had another bathroom to use. Now I have to go home and try again tonight! This is what I get for thinking I'm a plumber. Just because I'm an accountant for a plumbing supply house does not make one a plumber. But I bet that if my daughter had attempted the job, she would have succeeded. But then, if she tried to keep my companies books, it would have been another matter! I happy writing, reading and doing arithmetic, she's not. She's happy doing plumbing, painting and working out in the wet red clay, I'm not. Below are some of the jobs she's worked on and completed.
