Addiction

We all have things that we like to do. Some of us have things we REALLY like to do. With Nancy it is gardening... and books. Lots and lots and lots of books, everywhere. There aren't enough bookshelves in the house for all the books. Still, it could be worse. She doesn't shop for shoes, usually, and doesn't spend a lot for the ones she does get. She's good at finding bargains at the thrift stores for clothing for me and for her.

Still, the books do add up. Amazon.com is not a good place for her to navigate too. The only worse places for her to shop online are the seed companies. If her spending is any indication of how other gardeners order, the seed companies should be having a very good year.

Tick Tock

I don't care how pretty the watch is, how well it keeps time or how prestigious it is, there is never enough time in the day. It doesn't matter if you're wearing a Timex or a Audemars Piguet
there are only 24 hours in a day, and some of them you have to spend sleeping.

When you work for an international company, you get requests for updated information at all hours of the day and night. Add to this fact that not everyone in the world celebrates the same holidays, that means that sometimes, I come into work 12 hours behind schedule, even if I'd only left 10 hours earlier, with everything caught up.

Note to self: must remember to breathe.

Bonus

Nancy's boss wants to give her a bonus if he starts making a decent profit again. Problem is, like many luxury services, tutoring is not having a good run just now. So, he wasn't able to give her the big bonus. Bummer.

He is, however a very generous boss. He not only gave her a Christmas card, wishing her the very best for the coming new year, he enclosed a very nice gift card inside the card. She'll be able to use it this summer on a trip she's taking. It will give her some luxuries and some freedom in Chicago.

Now, how to make tutoring profitable again...

Dealers - Good and Bad

I will list all the dealers we go to on any given day. I will discuss only the good aspects to each visits so you can surmise the problems we/I had at the other dealers.

A Sign Of Insanity

Yeah that title says it all. There are so many signs on the side of the roads for everything but Sanity, Hell there are signs for small business for sale, houses for sale, and even someone willing to buy your house no matter how run down it is. There are loads of signs for general office services as well as specialized services for bring your resume up to acceptable standards. I am seeing fewer signs for selling cars. I guess that is because people are just parking their cars along the side of the road with a phone number and asking price painted on the windows.

The sign I want to see is someone willing to pay my bills!

Car W and B

Well we started our search for a newer form of family transportation. I use all those strange words because I would love to tell you we got a big, fancy, luxury car or a van that has more power doors than gears to shift into but I may be telling you soon about the less than our dream car. One of the many bells and whistles that used to only be in the luxury cars and is now very commonplace is settings that the car remembers for each passenger. Heck its almost like having a sleep number bed for anything and everything that will make me comfortable!
