Had a pretty complex frustrating day with a lot going on and little getting done... Home and L made us a nice dinner. I ran G to and from basketball, J helped me ship some ebay things. Pretty quiet night.

20181205 - Sad Friends

20181205 - Up in the am and the remote start for the car won't work due to an update in their software...  great coldest day of this winter so far and my car is FREEZING!

Got some things done at the desk and ran to meet L at calling hours for the father of Maria Varney, one of our dear friends. Back to work and got more done. Headed home.

Hung out in the living room a bit before heading to bed and worked on Booster stuff until late.

20181204 - Volunteering and Hockey

20181204 - Up in the am and dropped G off at school for his Bible study and then J on the way in to work. Got in to work and getting things done so I can get out of here half a day. Tried to get as much done as possible before heading to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank to volunteer the rest of the day. It was a bit chaotic at first but then we started getting a lot of things done. At one point I was putting food in peoples carts and gave out lots of extras. Had a good time doing it and the time went fast. Headed home through Grove City traffic, which is still horrible... Got home and L cooked us all dinner.

We ate and then L&G headed to his hitting practice and I had J drive me down Hamilton to Broad to High St. downtown and up to Nationwide Area where we took in an exciting Blue Jackets game. They lst but it was still cool to go! J drove me home the same way we went in and is getting more comfortable behind the wheel. Home, exhausted, to bed

20181203 + Level Set

20181203 + Up in the am and dropped J off and got gas on the way in to work. We had a launch of an internal web-page that kept me busier than usual on a Monday am. Worked straight through lunch in a super fast morning and trying to slow things down to get done what I need to get done today... Had a conversation with the President of the Boosters on my level of involvement... he is ok with it. Finished up the day reasonably well and headed home. Only home a second before I had to run and pick J up from his first day of indoor track. Home and we all sat down to eat. L ran G to basketball and J and I finished up and tried to clean up the kitchen. I headed into the office and L came in to help ship. Took J to Scouts and had a talk with Rob and Jason about my level of involvement there... they are ok with it. Ran to pick G up at basketball. Back to Scouts and J&G with merit badge counselor and I sold some baseball discount cards and chatted with the guys. After Scouts J drove us to the Post Office and G ran the packages in. Home and watched some TV with L, got the boys to bed and then up almost all night, couldn't sleep, last I looked at the clock was 3:45AM...

20181202 - Rear Window

20181202 - Up in the am and all to church. Home for a bit and L went to Delaware to see GGmaK. J&I shipped ebay stuff and then he drove to the Post Office, gas station and we swung through Kroger to get some nuts and dried fruit for me to take to work. We saw Bill there and chatted a second. Home and I got some more stuff done while J&G played on the Xbox until their arguing with each other through the Xbox and I could hear them from both upstairs and downstairs yelling at each other forced me to disconnect the network for my own sanity...  I made them eat and then G&I headed to Johnstown for his basketball game. G didn't shoot much today but played very well. The boys won easily and we headed home. We all ate and then JG&I sat at the table finishing up Scout stuff. When we got to a stopping point we headed in to the living room and watched a cute Christmas movie.  All to bed in good time.

20181201 - G on the Court

20181201 - Up in the am and J helped me ship stuff in ebay. We got it all packed up and J drove to deliver them to the Post Office and then headed across town to Reynoldsburg to pick up some auction items. We headed back across town the back-way to hit Meijer so J could do some Christmas shopping. Home and got L&G's for his basketball game, J stayed home. G did good at his game and they boys won. The only excitement was someone barfed on the court...  no one admitted to it... Swung through KFC on the way home. Home and we ate, L did some laundry J&G played on the Xbox and I got some things done in the office until time to watch the OSU vs Northwestern Big 10 Championship game. D texted, he heard a hissing noise and found a piece of metal in his tire on his way into Buffalo Wings. Didn't get it fixed right away... had to put on his spare... It was a great game, except for the 3rd quarter, but not sure it is enough to get the Buckeyes into the playoffs.

20181130 + Leave'm @ Home

20181130 + Up in the am and J moving very slooooow this morning. Got him dropped off at school and swung through McD's to grab a sausage McMuffin on the way in to work. Got to work and dove right in. It was a productive day and I believe we have selected a direction that is best for the company. Exhausted I headed home. D texted he is not coming home this weekend. I got home and J&G were buried in the Xboxes... I wasn't going to deal with the screaming that would occur by forcing them off, so L&I went to the Rusty Bucket for a nice quiet dinner. We stopped and picked up Wendy's for boys on way home. Home and settled int eh basement to watch a movie, 'Darkest Minds'.

20181129 + 2019 Discount Cards are Here!

20181129 + Up in the am and dropped J off at school and headed towards work. Passed Bill on 270 like he was in a Flintstones peddle car, he texted me to slow down... Got to work and dove in to the day. Got a text in the middle of the day that the father of one of our dear friends has suddenly passed away... praying for the Varney family. Finished the day and headed towards home with a call from the City asking if I wanted to be on the 'Appeals Board' and a stop at the high school to pick up the 2019 version of the baseball discount cards. Home and got the social media blast out about the cards to generate some buzz. L cooked dinner and J&G joined us after being pried from the Xbox. After dinner the boys worked on Scout stuff until it was time to take G to basketball. Home and gave J his first lesson on ebay shipping. I think he liked the part of seeing home much $ he was making with each shipment and learning that, nickles, dimes and quarters all stack up to dollars... Ran to get G from practice. Home and updated my resume and sent it to the City for their records. Got the boys to bed and worked on splitting the track app into boys and girls until too late.
