An Unplanned Trip

“This is so not how this trip was supposed to go!” my friend exclaimed as we walked away from the ticket counter. “How can we really be stuck here? What are we supposed to do now?”

It was kind of a frustrating predicament. Engine problems on the airplane meant an emergency landing in Singapore and it was going to be at least 24 hours before they could get us on a flight home.

“Sight-seeing,” I replied after a moment as we walked.

“What?” I went on after catching the look on her face. “When are we ever going to be here again? Might as well make the best of it.”

“And where are we going to sleep tonight?” she asked sarcastically. “In the airport?”

I rolled my eyes. “Give me a break. There are a ton of Singapore hotels; we’ll find a good one and crash.”
She looked thoughtful. “Fine,” she finally said after some consideration. “As long as we find one with room service.”

“Done,” I replied with a smile. “There’s nothing like an impromptu vacation to add a little adventure to life!”

My Wonderful Night

The night started off like any other. My friends and I were planning to get together after work and hit a few bars. Nothing we had not done any other Friday night. But this Friday night did not end like the others.

We walked into the club and I immediately saw a cute guy sitting there alone at the bar. I decided to try to impress him, so I hopped onto the stool right beside of him. I did not realize that the bar stools had wheels on them. That became obvious very quickly, though.

After I got done picking him and myself up out of the floor, we laughed and exchanged information. I guess it does pay to be yourself. Even if you are clumsy and uncoordinated. It sure worked for me this time.

When my grandfather got old

I was saddened when my grandfather had to start using incontinence pads, but I knew it was necessary. He had started to have accidents in his trousers because he could not get to the bathroom fast enough. He had the ability to hold it, but he couldn’t walk to the bathroom in a fast enough pace. This is the reason my family decided to get him nappies. He still goes to the bathroom on the toilet, he just uses them as protection. This is the best way for us not to have to clean up urine soaked clothes but still give him independence. He has been getting sicker and sicker lately, and we will definitely miss him when he passes away from his sickness. You should put nappies on your elderly loved one, if they need it.

Vacation Deadline

I failed to see the new overly hyped science fiction movie “Sharknado” when it debuted earlier this month. Despite not seeing the film it was pretty clear to see what the story was about. A group of man eating killer sharks were sucked up into a tornado and cut a patch across the United States eventually being conquered by Tara Reid and the guy from Beverly Hills 90201.

I’m fairly certain that I’ll never live to see a sharknado but I do believe that I can feel the pain suffered by the victims of those silent killers when I suffered “computer crashnado” just before leaving for vacation. With a checklist a mile long to do list and non refundable airfare looming over my internal clock I received the “Blue screen of death”. Work needed to be done a final PowerPoint presentation needing editing and I needed to call the NCR books rep.

Thank goodness for a support group and my IT guy. The geek squad has nothing on Aaron the helpdesk dude. I don’t think homeboy has any idea of how much stress he saved me with four mouse clicks and a diagnostic screening. Vegas was waiting and Aaron doesn’t know it yet but there will be a souvenir shot glass with this name all over it.

More For Less

We were in the process of building our new company. I thought it would be nice to find a building that would be big enough to grow into. My investors told me, I should start at a smaller office, and work my way into a larger building as my team grew. I knew this would be very, soon since I had a plan to grow 90% in the first year. I found an empty mid-rise building. It looked a little run down, but the structure stood strong and it was promising. I had my architect do a walk through of the building to verify this.

I spent less than half for it, than my original plan to spend on the building. Me and my team spent the next three months renovating it in to perfection. We even, threw in a lounge for our customers to eat and relax in while waiting for consultation. The groundworks was amazing, we won a local award.
