My son is a coach for Special Olympics. I went to pick him up after their practice and this incredible kid came running up to my car. He was High fiving me and cheering. He was so so happy. Slapping my hand and jumping on Jackson. Sheer love. If there was a solid object that defined LOVE, it was this little boy. So happy and so so precious . All the problems and all the worries fade away. That little encounter made me grateful for my son and my life.
After that we said our goodbyes, my son got into my car. ” Busy day mom. WTF mom, why do teachers wait till the last minute to assign work? I have so much homework tonight. Damn when I am in college I am going to attack work right away.” As he was talking and CURSING, I felt a huge sense of peace. ” He is such a good boy. Soon to be man. He may curse like his mother. But he is patient, kind , and smart. I did good. “
” Better to look good then live great. ” My ex-husband’s motto. Tonight is his birthday. Big 51. And we were discussing the people who have aged well and the ones not as fortunate. My ex-husband looks pretty good. He’s in great shape and looks young. He rarely drinks. He will go 8 months without a beer to prove to himself he doesn’t need one. He works out every day. And if it wasn’t for my son he would have nearly no interaction with other human beings. But again , he looks good! ” Liliana ,you look good. You don’t need a happier life. ” I need to make a t-shirt with something like that. “Skimp on happiness binge on looks” . ” A little less living and a lot better looking”. It needs work but I find it funny.
Bars rocked this weekend. Congrats all the bars for such hard work on the national charity event . Good job.
Went college scouting with my son to Reed College, U of Washington, and Whitman College. He seems to like the smaller schools. My criteria: Has to be a direct flight and the school has to be well renowned. ” Plus universe if he could get a scholarship , I would appreciate it.” .
Opened my eyes . First email from Chantel ( HR), ” call me immediately “. Oh brother . In corporate everyone knows not to get on Jeff’s shit list. It’s virtually impossible to get off. Everyone thinks people are afraid of me but honestly everyone is afraid of Jeff. Jeff is incredibly kind and mild mannered . But he holds a grudge . Yesterday Daniel was on his shit list . Today I have moved on it , chantel and kevin also . I said to Lee that currently he is the only one not on Jeff’s war path. Lee’s response ” the day is young .”
I need a drink . Victoria lost her passport and missed her flight to London for a trade show . It’s just one of those days .
Last year a woman ran a marathon with no tampon or pad with the expectation of destigmatizing the ” shame” of menstruating. I found this article yesterday with a yoga instructor doing a similar thing. http://mashable.com/2017/02/11/yogi-dressed-in-white-defies-period-shame/#TbxkMJoLaiqg Come on? You want to throw a party and embrace your teen ager for becoming a women go for it. I have this picture in my mind of dogs chasing the bleeding marathoner. God can you imagine if the marathon was in extreme heat. Flies swarming around the woman. ” Your period let’s you know you are not pregnant. YAY period !!”
Bars rocking last night .
This is excellent. An article about the craziest excuses employees used to get a day off of work . http://www.cheatsheet.com/money-career/sick-day-funniest-excuses-for-calling-out-of-work.html/11/ WE definitely have some doozies at Coyote. Fort Worth putting up some great numbers for it’s first two days! I love that.
Fort Worth open for business . Within 5 minutes of opening most of the speakers had blown . About 3 hours into opening Chris was able to get a DJ to work the rest of the night ! Good night regardless !
This are moving along in Fort Worth. Chantel is whipping the girls into shape. Kevin, Daniel, Tommy and Pinky have been working super hard. Lee just got there. It’s going to be a great bar.
I read this and I thought, this mom was a hero. https://www.yahoo.com/news/m/aa7c7e7d-d626-39d3-812a-d1f71cbbde71/a-heroic-mother-died-in-a.html There is nothing like the love for a child. Tonight meeting with college advisor for Jackson.
Fort Worth is a pressure cooker . Poor Kevin is sick and everything seems to be going wrong . I got back home from the girl search yesterday . Good crew ! Today Tommy, Pinky , Daniel and Chantel are helping paint and other jobs . Never easy .
Heading to Fort Worth Tomorrow . Bar is looking good . Got my delta diamond card today . Almost makes having no personal life worth it !
