Just Stuff

Today is my last trip to Daytona. And I can say that pretty confidently. I don't like that town...nothing personal, I just don't like it. Never have.

Not a huge NASCAR fan so no draw there. The beach there does nothing for me. Not one damn thing. Afterall - once you've been on the gentle calming beaches of the gulf coast nothing is the same.

So.....unless something really big comes up I won't be heading back over there. Whew.

However - I will miss my customers over there. I opened a new account there this past month, and have been working closely with the owners. It's a new business, this is their dream and I was honored to be a part of it. And they are kickin' some mattress ass, let me tell you. But the guy taking over that area will do a great job for them, and I'll be keeping my eye on things - just because I care.

My focus has to change. I'm setting up my schedule to make sure I'll be home every night. After all - 4 days to PUPPY!! WooHoo. It won't be that difficult. It'll just take a bit of saying NO and Not Right Now. Always hard for me to do, but necessary.

I've started taking a bit better care of myself. Hell - last night I was just down right decadent. I gave myself a manicure/pedicure - my nails look so pretty again. I deep conditioned my hair - it's so sooooffffffftttttttt now. I even gave myself a facial.......damn that was nice.

I was sort of hungry, but in the spirit of taking better care of Tammi, I made a huge wok full of chicken stir fry. I do very good chicken stir fry. AND I could eat as much as I wanted to. SWEET! And believe me.....this ain't your Mama's stir fry. It is very yummy. ( No offense to your Mama!)

Hell....I got so caught up in the spirit of things that, while watching Independence Day, I put together a new workout for after work. Some stretching and isometrics. Perfect for after a long day in the car.

It was a great evening. This week will be interesting. Still going to be very busy. But - that's to be expected. I do feel a bit more prepared to handle it all now.

Oh and it helps that is beautiful out today. No sign of the Big T's from yesterday. (yeah - that's what was going on!) I actually can't wait to get out there!

Now that is an uplifting post!

You have to take care of yourself. We all do.

Both Sally and I know someone else who doesn't liek Daytona... Ah Dave, if you're out there, you're a prat of the highest order, but oh how we laughed at your expense.

Always remember that you're number one and if you don't look after yourself you need a rich man with servants to do it for you.

First - you should put a counter on your blog until puppy ownership.

Second - stir fry! Yum! I want some.

Third - we got more snow. Lots of shoveling. I'm VERY jealous of your good weather.
