With this bonus check, I'm putting in a swimming pool! And if there's enough left over, I'm gonna fly you all down here to help us dedicate it.
I can't swim, Clark.
Today is my mom's last day of work. For, like...ever. Today is also the last time she'll ever have to make that chilly, slippery walk from the McPherson Square metro stop to her office building which makes me, her constantly and overly concerned daughter, happy.
To kick off her retirement, my parents, 3 sisters, 3 bros-in-law, 1 niece, 4 nephews and I are going to have our own Griswold Family Christmas in Kauai. While I'm going to miss the crap out of Berry White (new job = no time off), I think with enough sun and mai tais, I'll manage (M3.)
That being said, it'll be a ghost town around here until I get back. Feel free to stop by anytime and putz around - my site is your site. The key is hidden in the fake giant slug near the crepe myrtle tree and there's plenty of beer in the fridge.
