It always starts to rain before Good Friday and into the next week. It wouldn't be Good Friday if it wasn't gloomy....so I will curl up with a good book and pretend I am still at work and this is a paid holiday. This was the last one I had last year.
You remember that....all my bitching about retirement etc.? Yup ... it has almost been a year now. My attitude has changed dramatically. I was just pissed off that they didn't let me stay until I was 65. It had nothing to do with performance ... only with the logistics that was happening with the company at the time. But I took offence. I was given a time line of my choice when I wanted to leave. I chose the end of April 2010.
At the time I did not realize I had made the smartest choice of my life. Timing was everything.
After all was said and done I have made more money this year that I have ever made in a year of my life.
Sitting here on my bony ass! Bitching about nothing to do..blah blah blah......colour me an ass hat.
Sometimes you just have to put stuff in perspective ...and thank the good Lord for looking after you.
That being said....Gord is spending money on the new house faster than I can cash my checks!! He got a stair lighting system to his Man Cave upstairs.... it lights up as you go up the stairs and when you come down. What will they think of next? Magic.
Just got the carpets cleaned today. They did an excellent job. The carpets look close to new. And it smells so good. All the dog smell and hair is toast. I was expecting their truck that houses the water and crap to explode with dog hair and all that has gone on around here in ten years. Yes...ten. The last time Sears did it they did a shitty job and put a hose through one of our walls. So we haven't had it done since.
I'm going to the new house tomorrow and will take some pic's of what is new there.
Happy Easter to you....and yours....
