More Tidbits....

Happy belated Father's Day to all the Dad's. I'm sorry that I wasn't home to share father's day with my dad, but I certainly hope he knows that I wish I were, and that I love him very much.

My work computer just advised me that my password will expire in 13 days. Would I like to change it now? I said no thank you.

Since I prefer to travel comfortably and had no business obligations when I got to Cincinnati on Monday night, I wore flip-flops, fishing shorts, and a T-shirt. The T-shirt was was solid black, and 100% Rayon, so I guess it looked pretty sharp. We could even call this "Islamorada Business Formal." Nonetheless, when my boss and I met the salesperson from our Chicago office in the lobby to head out to dinner, I was given the option of Cincinnati Bar B Q ribs, or a more upscale "fancy white-table cloth" type restaurant. I looked down at my attire and then back up at our salesperson....."Maybe the ribs might be more appropriate."

Pretty laid back weekend in general. Signed my contract for the house on Friday evening. Celebrated with a few beers. Proceeded to break my Crackberry on Friday night, so no phone much of Saturday. Golfed which was fine. Got a message for a showing on my house when I was done. Communication at it's finest. Headed to watch the US Open with Brad, Mike and Bobby...My three constant friends for the 5 years I've been down in NC...our last time all in the same place, for now. Pretty low key, just some beers and Golden Tee after the US Open, but fun as always.

Sunday just did some work around the house. Went and watched the open again.

That was basically the weekend. If I said anything else, I'd be in trouble. If I don't say anything, it'll mean I don't care. Can't win for losing.

Been feeling a bit awkward at work these days. Uncomfortable to really tell people they're doing something wrong, of fight for something that I believe to be correct when the opinions are against me, and I feel like everyone's just looking at me saying, "you're leaving anyway." So, I'm trying to get some stuff done while staying out of the way a bit, but disconcerting all the same.

But, it'll all work out the the way it should. It will. All of it. I'm convinced of that.

Be well.
