Tuesday ThoughtsPosted: October 2, 2007
You know, I’m about done with funerals. Not to start this off in a gloomy way, but we buried my 100-year-old grandmother yesterday, just a little more than three months after my brother’s funeral. If I don’t go to another funeral for a few years, I’ll feel pretty good about that.
Big day for Aidan at school today. It’s show-and-tell time! He’s the first one to go. He has really come out of his shell in the last month, but he’s still a very shy kid. As I sit and write this, I can’t help but wonder how he’s doing — if he’s even doing! I’ll let you know how he does.
My TiVo is acting up. We have two TVs. One (the one we always watch) has TiVo on it, the other just has a satellite receiver. The second TV was not getting something from the satellite so they came out and got that fixed Saturday morning. I asked them about my TiVo, explaining how it would just freeze at times. Of course, as they went to see it, it worked fine. But, it happened last night while I was trying to watch the Patriots and TiVo a couple of other shows. Looks like another call to tech support. I mean, it’s peak TV season. Can’t lose it now!
My 15th college reunion is this weekend. I’m incredibly psyched to go and spend time with four of my dearest friends. Oh, and the bottle of Captain Morgan I was just given will come in handy, too.
I saw a sign the other day that made me think. It was on a gas station and it said, “Under New Management.” When you see a sign like that, why is there always an immediate assumption that, well, it must be better now?
Patriots! Red Sox! Life is good.
What else? I got nothin’.
