That was the week that was – 2011.02.27

Exciting and long week this week.  Sunday night and winding down and getting re-charged for next week.

We are installing at 2 of our 3 operational locations this week and preparing to install at the 3rd.  We are also waiting on the Customer to turn us one to do some more development.  The combination makes work pretty high stress  right now.  Installations are at best uneventful and at worst fail and they send you home packing.  They are not sending us home but the installations have been a real roller coaster ride.  One day everything is sunshine and blue skies. The next day is gravel.  We had a lot of gravel days this week.  If I was younger I would be pretty bummed out but in 35+ years I have seen much worse and of course much better.  You have stay on the bright side of life in my business or you don’t last long

Wednesday night we had tickets to the Mavs/Jazz game. Deron Williams was traded Wednesday morning and we figured the Jazz would be out of sync for the game.  We were right. The Mavs won by 20 in a rare not close game.

Good News Week – We have been trying to sell our Camper since last August and have not received a bite.  We sold it this week to a young couple with children that wanted to move up to a bigger unit!!!!  Good things do happen.

We had the grandkids overnight Friday (C2). I picked them up from school at 5PM.  We ate at Carrabas – their favorite restaurant.  Campbell and Gwen made a German Chocolate cake for Sara’s birthday while Cale and I watched TV and vegged out.  They were up bright and early Saturday morning at 7AM so I crawled out of bed to make sure they did not get into too much trouble.  We had breakfast at the Club – another one of their favorites, ran some errands, and took them home.

Saturday night – Sara birthday dinner at Kenny’s Woodfire Grill with Sara and Mike.  Had drinks at Hoolihan’s before dinner and then off to Kenny’s.  This was our 1st itme their and we would definitely go back.  Gwen’s pork chop must have come off some monstrous breed of pig I do not know of.  It was the biggest pork chop I have ever seen.  Gwen says it was to die for.  I had a New York Strip which was also delectible.  Tip – don’t get a baked potato.  They taseted like they had been cooked in a microwave.  Everything else was top shelf!  And spending time with our youngest- Sara – and her husband – Mike – was very enjoyable.

Sunday was a re-charge day.  We slept in – 8AM. Had breakfast at Spoon’s in McKinney.  Gwen had the oatmeal and I had the yogurt, granola, and fruit.  Great place.  Then I worked in the garage, took Abby for a walk, and had lunch.  After lunch was the highlight of my day – 1st bike ride of the season.  I rode for 2 hours.  The ride was unusal to say the least because the wind was howling out of the South 30-35 mph.  When I was riding South going up the hills was easier than coming down because the hill blocked some of the wind.

Plan on spending the rest of the evening reading a good book or SyFy article.
