His first crush

My son never has a problem finding a pretty girl. They chase him and he loves it. He's five and such a little ladies man.

Today was his first day of Kindergarten. I didn't cry either..as he's so confident and ready to start school. It made it easier for me.

This after noon when I picked him up, I asked the usual questions to inquire about his day. Open ended questions that led to conversation vs yes or no questions.

Me: "What did you do on the playground today?"

Little T: "Chased girls..." (with a smile) "I looooove to chase girls!"

Me: "Any in particular? How about the girl who sits next to you? Ashlee?"

Little T: "Ooooo. She's so pretty mom. I don't want to come home. I just wanna be with her right now!"

Me: (eyebrows up) "really?"

Little T: "Oh yeah, I can't wait to go back tomorrow to see her. She's just so pretty mom."
And he continued, "And she grabbed me when we left to hold on to me. She grabbed my arm, and my back pack and my legs!"

Me: (thinking they all had to hold hands on the way out to pick up)
"so did everyone hold hands to walk out to car pool?"

Little T: "Oh no. She just grabbed me and it was so much it gave me an owie! She hurt me! But she's so pretty."

Oh man...I'm already in the midst of puppy love at 5 years old. What's it gonna be like when he's 17?

"Mom, she hurt me...but it's okay cuz she's sooooo pretty?"

Am I in trouble or what?

Undercover Boss Eye Opener

This past week I watched Undercover Boss, which featured Retro Fitness and one employee in particular, who got fired.  Normally Undercover Boss shows a few employees, with great stories and good work ethic, and sometimes there may be a few problem employees.

In this last issue, it seems all anyone is talking about is that one problem employee, named Jacqueline, who was a shining example of what bad attitudes are really about, and was about as bad as they come.

Jacqueline, who on the outside, seemed like a clean cut decent person until she opened her mouth to speak.  And this girl wasn't just rude ... she was abusive to everyone around her. 

As if it wasn't bad enough that she was completely unprofessional and had no compassion for anyone around her at work ... she then turned into the flippant, defensive, careless girl, who talked back to the CEO of the company when he tried to explain his grievances with her.  She passionately denied anything he was trying to explain to her, …

Brian Naranjo - A Celebrated Man

It's Saturday...

It's Saturday, and at this very moment a few hundred miles north of me, my friend is grieving the loss of her husband.

It's Saturday and this week has felt like an eternity.  I've moved through this week with such a heavy heart.

And I feel guilty for being trapped in this fog of sorrow, as I'm not the one who lost my life long partner of over 20 years. I'm not the one who just got my husband back from Afghanistan, only to lose him to an unexpected death.


I can not fathom how my friend is coping, walking step by step through the process of burying her soul mate at the tender young age of 39.

Brian Naranjo would have been 40 years old on February 29th, 2012. Brian Naranjo would have his whole life ahead of him.  He would have been celebrating a marquis year, when you're supposed to reflect on where you've come and what you have left to do. 

In reading his Facebook wall, as I'm inexplicably drawn to it, I've read the many memo…

No, Dude! I Really Don't Want to See That!

Yesterday was one for the books ... 
I was in a meeting with a sales manager at a car dealership, which was almost coming to a close when someone from the lobby alerted the manager that someone had driven up on the lot.  From the look on his face, I could tell that whoever this person was - was not exactly welcome.
He promptly apologized and excused himself so that he could deal with the person we'll call 'Dude'.  Within seconds I heard Dude and could tell that he was high maintenance from the commotion in the lobby.  He had not only shown up in a test drive truck but had a ton of his belongings inside and a trailer hitched to the back.
Patiently, I waited inside hoping that whatever went down wouldn't be a 'situation' as the energy felt in the dealership was a bit heightened.
A few minutes later, the manager returned to process a paperwork for Dude when Dude stepped into the inner office for a quick question.  I smelled him before I saw him as smoke rolled in…
