I am back in California still, things are going. My second day here, my work dropped a bomb that I had to rework my numbers for next year, and had only 6 days to complete it (including over the holiday). After working daily until Monday night at 9:30 and one more conference call today, it’s over. The drawback? The majority of my family has left for other trips, and I missed most of them, and the days before the holiday, usually my favorite, were spent working. Now some people ask, how is that possible, how can your job do it, well I have a duty to my employer and to myself to complete tasks, and sometimes they take up your own time, it was just unfortunate over this time.
Christmas was enjoyable with the family. Sean was the only missing link this year, though I have heard that my old brother, and his wife, and younger brother may both be missing links next year. Robyn came up the day after Christmas, unfortunately I worked most of her days here. We did manage to hang out a bit, the one day we had daytime free, it rained, go figure? We made the best of it, ordered an in room movie. The day after Christmas, I joined my father and God Parents in San Diego, after Robyn arrived, at HH La Jolla Torrey Pines. Today Robyn departed back to California, with Symba, a sad day altogether. Someone recently made a comment to the effect of “Let’s toast, to Symba finally leaving, and getting new carpet”. That comment has not sat well with me, and I am still disturbed by it as I though about it today.
I am not sitting back in my hotel suite after having pizza with Val and watching Duplex and Anchor Man. I asked dad to hve dinner and watch a DVD, he said he had no plans but was going home, I stopped by later to talk to him, to find out he was not alone, which is probably the reason why he was busy.
How depressing is this, the two songs that make me think of Robyn:
I Miss You~ Blink 182
The Reason~ Hoobastank,
They just played back to back on Launchplus radio on Yahoo! Nuts ehh?
Off to Ponder and read a book a friend gave me.
