Schools Still Closed, Lunch With a Friend, and The Wife Trying to Work From Home
Posted Feb 15 2010 12:00am
Schools are still closed here in the great of Maryland. Why when I was a lad, we had to walk uphill to school in a blinding blizzard, both ways. I built the house I was born in, it was tough but it was expected of us. Not too many people shoveled their walks, just their driveways and cars on the streets. Our home is all dug out, including the sidewalks, the Sheriff and his henchmen won't be stopping here to hassle the man.
Going out to lunch on Wednesday with my friend Joe. I think it's been good for both of us that we reconnected, I know it's been for me. He doesn't live that far away,and always offers to pick me up, good egg. I turned him on to a hot dog joint that serves up the best chili dogs on the east coast, Coffman's Snack Bar. My family has been going there for chili dogs my whole life. The father isn't going with us so I can get french fries without having to share them!
The wife is looking to find a job she can do totally from home, so we can spend more time together. I'm not to the point where I need a lot care, and the things I get help with I can still do, just easier with help. It's only a small gap in the money she would need to pick up, and I wouldn't be so lonely. This is a tough gig, I thought it would be easy. It will be 12 years the 22nd of this month, and though I've always thought myself to be not much of a people person, turns out I'm more in need of human contact than I thought.
