Vacation!

I’m on vacation next week. I’m taking my mom to Shreveport for a few days. She enjoys the slot machines. She used to play blackjack but her mind isn’t as sharp as it once was to be able to play it any more. She’s 86 years young.

I sat through a presentation of the changes and enhancements to our banking product. It lasted 7 hours, with 45 minutes for a lunch break. I listened on the phone while watching the presentation online thru Net Meeting. Two-thirds of it was outside of my realm of work. At times, I was ready to fall asleep because my mind wasn’t being challenged.

It’s hot here, over 100 degrees high the last few days. We have another heat advisory for tomorrow. It’ll be Sunday before we stay below the century mark.

I’ve been watching the version of Chess that I recorded off tv. I’d heard about the show but had never seen it performed before. I had to put the closed captioning on to understand all the words. My ADHD makes it difficult for me to understand what people say/sing at times, especially when it’s fast. What was interesting was the bad words were literally “bleeped” out in the captioning. I cracked up when I saw it. Great show! All the singers were great and aside from Josh, I really liked Adam Pascal.

God bless us, everyone!
