No Place Like Home

So at the very end of May (after Memorial Day) I was drafted by Boss 3 (Boss 1 is my immediate supervisor, Boss 2 is his boss, Boss 3 is over him) to go to a recent acquisition because disaster on the books related to inventory and costing.  In addition to Boss 3 another costing expert and 2 controllers (both of who have been working with this location) were there.  I haven't traveled for work since November 2012.  The Mom situation kept me tied to home (more or less) for a couple of years.  I do know that my name was mentioned from time to time with situations but Boss 2 told them no (and I am very grateful for that) because he knew the situation and that my stress level was off the chart.  But things are more settled now and he left it up to me.  I said yes, because it has been that long since I've been off special projects like this. 

I've got notes about amusing traveling with boss 3 anecdotes to share.  But I'm pooped.  And I have a suitcase of dirty laundry.  And the feline headship is most upset with me for leaving her for five days.  (I got scolded for dashing to the grocery store for a few things this morning). 

I'm glad to be home.  In my own bed.  With my own food.  With my own shampoo and conditioner (yeah that's a mistake that won't be repeated) with my own car (Boss 3 had the rental car so at times I felt a bit trapped).  With my own TV (I cut cable and do most of my viewing via apps on my Roku, I was reminded this week why I cut cable.  80 channels - nothing on).  With the ability to change my mind on what I want to wear and not be trapped by what I put in my suitcase. 

Now to get over the shock of Leaving Connecticut where is was in the 70's all week and adjusting to upper 90's here in Mid-Mo.

there is no place like 127.0.0.1. :)  there is no better feeling than returning home after braving the hell that is sleeping elsewhere and using unfamiliar bathrooms.

      they'll miss their flight again since they decided to have a full 3 course meal at the airport instead of having snacks by their gate. They'll complain about the mistreat of their animals even though there wasn't any and the only abuse going on is art and Ryann neglecting the cats. they'll get to there new state and put out a asap emergency fund for a Uber because there family members car broke down or something. then they bitch and wine about all the problems and inconveniences at the family members house or there new place.

      I truly try not the judge other parents. I was at a pool with friends the other day and there was a fecal incident. My friend was like, “the parent should know of the child is potty trained and put them in a swim diaper!” I’m a terrible devil’s advocate so I couldn’t bite my tongue. Of course I had to say that the child who pooped may have special needs and we never know. And my friend agreed. 
       

      Of course we didn’t set foot in that pool even long after it was cleaned! The mental image was seared into our brains 🤣

      Jeremy and Jinger did a new you tube video. They are going back to vlogging. They are in a new house, in LA, and it sounds like they plan to be there awhile. They are remodeling. They talked about moving. It was riveting. 💤

      Blaming the parent is a cop out and empowers the child to act out.

      Absolutely - kids are individuals just like adults.  All you can do is your best but nobody is able to be ON 100% of the time without breaks.  We're not machines.

      It's moving day for the entitlement twins.  Anyone want to guess when their next grift will be?  I am sure it will be less than a day for their next "funding request" to appear.

      My guess is that some of their "boxes*" will have been lost, damaged, stolen, etc and they will be needing the items** in those particular boxes replaced ASAP.

      * boxes... if any boxes even exist. They collect free money then do whatever they want. 

      ** items... the lost boxes will "contain" their most valuable belongings so they can beg for as much money as possible.
