What's this? A post from the long lost me? It feels like ages sin since I've been around, mostly because...well...it has. This marks the first day in (I believe) 18 days that I am not working. Yikes!
It's been absolutely nutty to say the least. Some days have stretched into fourteen hour marathons and the ones that have been shorter, when I got home I was just too tired to flip on the computer. So if you haven't seen my mug on your sites lately, that's why.
A brief update on Lisa's mom: She had surgery (again) yesterday and this time they did a complete mastectomy. The pathology report showed that there is currently no more cancer present. Great news! Lisa and the boys went down to Calif to see her and the doctor pulled Lisa aside and told her what a remarkable difference Maria showed from before to currently. She said having her family around was probably the best medicine she could have prescribed. I'm so glad she and the boys were able to get down there. They'll be back home tomorrow evening...yeah!
A little time apart is ok, but it does make me realize how much I like being around my wife and sons.
In my wild bachelor like nights while they have been down south I've really been hooping it up. Last night I went down to the local taqueria and ordered a carnitas burrito, brought it home, cracked open a Dr Pepper and watched "The Bucket List". Do I know how to party or what?
The movie was great, thoroughly enjoyed it. Made me laugh and cry at various times. I know a fair number of critics poo-pooed it but to them I say, "Bite me!" If you haven't seen it I highly recommend renting it.
Well that's about it for now. Psycho Mom forwarded the following to me in an email and I thought you might enjoy it too. See you tomorrow with a Wordzzle or two if I get off my butt and write them.
