Guess Who's On Vacation?
Ok. It’s a big fat stinking lie, but it’s the first one I told all day. I won’t be back in five minutes. I’m leaving on vacation on Friday and I won’t be back until April 13th. Letters from Camp will definitely start when I get back. I know you all can’t wait.
I actually went down into my basement last night and brought them up and read them all – out loud – to my daughters. We all had a really good laugh. We found that most of the letters fell into two categories (1) Dad, why aren’t you sending me any letters? And (2) Mom, why aren’t you sending me any food? I was mortified by my spelling. I knew that I used to be a crappy speller, but I just had no stinking idea I was that bad. It also seemed that I had a better time than I remember. But you have to keep in mind, I suffered from terrible guilt and didn’t want my parents to know how bad it was. So I probably was lying. Reading the letters 31 years later, they seem pretty convincing. But trust me, I remember, I was there!!!!
Anyway, I’ll be in Sarasota for about a week. Brian and Rose, I’ll waive to you both when I fly over! OH! And for those of you following my drama at work and my plans for the big escape, here’s an update. I spent most of today riding around with the realtor looking at office space for our new digs. We found about 8,000 square feet of beautiful space just outside the city. It’s built out and all ready to go. Just needs some paint and wallpaper. I actually started getting really excited today for the first time. I also sent the signed contract back to my new partners so, it’s official and a done deal. No going back now! YIKES!
Wishing everyone a lovely holiday and much love, compassion and forgiveness. Take care all and I’ll talk to you soon!
