Weekend Getaway

So today was somewhat productive. We met with the cheese dude around 9 and I was so happy to see him again. After the round of hugs and handshakes, we went over to the Starbucks stand where I purchased a grande cinnamon dulce, extra extra hot with whip. Mmmm...

We talked and walked business until noon. I did escape for an hour and went to the mall to buy one of my managers a nice business shirt and tie (I like Roundtree and Yorke). The one I bought for him around New Year's got stolen off of his desk. Can you believe that? Anyway, we ate lunch at the store. The chefs certainly outdid themselves today. I had the beef short ribs with steamed cauliflower/broccoli and penne pasta in alfredo. Talk about a large lunch! Good thing we are eating dinner late this evening. They were on their way after lunch to go chocolate tasting. I did not join them. Too many corporate suits annoy me at times. Too much talking shop, if you know what I mean.

We are heading to my mom and dad's this evening. I am taking the kid and my mom to Kansas City this weekend. My dad has decided to stay behind and work on the house and yard. I can't wait to see my brother and his girlfriend. They just moved into a new apartment and are anxious to show us their new place. The kid is anxious to try out the indoor pool and racquetball courts. It should be fun times.

I will try and update when I get to my brother's place. Hope you all have a great weekend!

I jsut wanted to say I don't think you're blog is boring. I don't know who said it was, but I disagree. Blogs are like books, you read what interests you. If what you write doesn't interest them then they don't have to read it.
My blog is just a personal outlet for whatever I choose to put on it. If it doesn't interest anyone, so be it.
Anyways. Good hearing from you. Hope you're well.
