I used to get them quite frequently while growing up but every once in a while they rear their ugly heads and I am done. My only regret is that I had to miss my voice lesson for which Kathrine was more than understandable 😀 Next week promises to be interesting as she is hosting an exchange student from New Zealand, I will have some one critiquing me full time. Kathrine tries to play the piano and watch me at the same time.
My New Years Day was ehh. After getting to bed around 5AM, I was awakened 4 hours later by the dulcet tone of “Can you come in to work today?” I probably would have been more receptive of the idea had I not been brought out of a deep sleep. I did go in from 1-6 and at time and a half plus the 9 hours at the same rate that I put in the day before, I wasn’t all that upset. Even the fact that the day just SEEEMED to DRAAAAAAAGGGGG did not put that much of a damper. At 5:45 however, a customer called asking if we had Similac Baby formula. About 30 seconds later, the man of the house called, asked the same question, and thankfully asked how late we were open. So, being the nice guy I am… waited for the customer’s arrival. But as he was checking out with his 9 cans of formula (which put us over $100.00 for our last hour) I turned out the lights.
Bowl Games for Big 10 country have not been overwhelmingly successful. Thankfully, the Buckeyes ended their 9 game winless streak against teams in the SEC as they defeated Arkansas 31-26. And poor Rich Rodriguez is out of a job. I thought he did a fine job as the 3 year coach of the team up North but I guess the PTB had other ideas.
