One thing for sure....

Huh. No first day jitters. None. I'm just sitting here, curlers in my hair (damned humidity anyway) waiting for the boss to call.

It's actually pretty cool. I heard from the new bossman the end of last week sayin' we'd just spend this week in the Chicago area. That we'd just meet up Tuesday (today) someplace and brainstorm.

Except we didn't decide on a place.

So here it is, Tuesday, May 29th. And I have no idea where I'm goin', what I'm doin'. Nothing. And I'm alright with that.

The Belfry is littered with boxes waiting to head over to Paradise and I'm alright with that too. The walls are pretty much bare. The tables are cleared off except for ashtrays and coasters. Looks kinda like a Frat House, minus the empty beer cans everywhere.

It was a good weekend. Actually it was a GREAT weekend. A nice segway from old to new. And it's given me a case of "NOW". I wanna move NOW. I wanna start training and meeting my customers NOW. NOW NOW NOW.

BUT.....all in due time. If I tried to move right now I'd put myself firmly behind the 8 ball. The plan is to have everything moved in from The Belfry (including Tammi) the week of June 15th. Just in time to avoid the worst of the heat and humidity. Can you say - sleep like a baby?!?!?! By the time Football season starts - well, let's just say Football Sunday's are gonna ROCK in Paradise. :-) All in due time. This patience thing is kinda cool. Wonder why it took this long for me to discover it!

The work thing? Yeah, it's gonna be slammin'. All new lines going on the first of July. A huge region to discover. And a few old scores to settle along the way.

So - I'm feelin' a bit like a cross between Alice in Wonderland and Dorthy in Oz. Well, except I'm not blond (I always heard Alice was blonde) and I don't have any red shoes (yet) - but other than that, yeah, it's pretty similar. It's like a parallel world. Looks familiar, but yet not really. I know this road. But can I be SURE of where it's leading? It's the same.....but different.

Yep, it's my life all right. That's the ONE thing that's certain.

Maybe Cat can loan you her shoes. They aren't red but they might do the trick...beads on the heels and all.

you could go to Sacred Heart and get your shoes spray-painted.
