That title doesn't really apply but I've got the song in my head. Gilbert O'Sullivan is one kooky, passive-aggressive Irishman. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_P-v1BVQn8&sns=em
That hair is fantastic!
But alas, I am alone tonight. 2 1/2 hours from home in Sack-uh-tomatoes, California... our great state's capital.
I'm staying in a room at the Residence Inn Marriott. It's one of those rooms that is obviously set up for a long-term stay. Big bathroom, bed, couch, kitchen and (drum roll) fireplace. I guess I could burn up some furniture, although it's really not that cold. It feels more like a small apartment... like a NYC kind of place, save the sliding glass door and fireplace. Did I mention there was a sliding glass door?
I'll be in a class tomorrow, all day. Grueling. Then it's one frantic day back at work and off to catch a flight to Maui, without my love, which is very difficult for me. Not for her. I mean, I'm sure she wishes she was coming with, but I'm going with my sibs and she is ultra supportive when it comes to my time with my brother and sisters. Did I mention there was a trip to Maui?
The hardest part about tomorrow is that I'm missing my daughter's 5th grade commencement. I know that holding a graduation for every grade is silly, but they had the 5th grade thing when I was a kid. In addition she's leaving the only school she's ever attended. And most of her friends are not going to her new school. It's going to be a tough, emotional day for her and I wish I was there. Did I mention my girl was graduating 5th grade?
So I'm alone again, as my job sometimes requires me to be. But I have a job and I can take care of that massive family. And for that, I am very, very grateful. Well, I'm not completely alone. iVan the iPad is here. Did I mention I (tentatively) named my iPad?
