Yesterday I had some mailings to get out.
I wonder how many people get to work in pink fuzzy slippers?
World Headquarters is sort of cold. I keep the heat turned down there, since I'm only there for part of the day. When I got back to the house, my nose felt like the polar ice cap. So I used the blow dryer to warm it up. Does that cancel out my energy savings at WHQ?
We talked about his school and made family plans. I feel choked up when I think about him being so grown up. I wish I could go back and re-live it all.
You know how sometimes when you run into an elderly woman in the grocery store who stops and tells you to enjoy your time with your children because you're going to blink and they'll be grown? And you know how at that moment you're feeling overwhelmed because one of them is trying to get out of the cart, one has grabbed five boxes of granola bars, the other has to go to the bathroom, and the other is complaining that you brought your own grocery bags? And you know how you think, yeah yeah, I'm just trying to make it through this shopping trip!
Well, now I understand her.
All that through my mind, and lunch hasn't even arrived yet.

After lunch, I stopped by the post office to mail all my packages. Frank tells me that he still talks about the day that I sent hundreds of packages from the Mead post office and that it was a record breaker. I tell him I took a picture of the receipt, for old time's sake.
Then I tell him that soon, I'll have a bigger mailing. A record breaker. He asks me to call him first so that he can go on his lunch break.
hahaha, I laugh. And then I tell him that he should really just stop and enjoy this time, because it only happens once a year.
Strangely, I don't think he agrees.
