As one door closes...

...another opens. Tomorrow Paul begins his new career with GE. This is an exciting evening for us and a goodbye to his temporary retirement. It was been an absolute gift to have him home for the last eight months. We have two totally renovated bathrooms, a consolidated home and a Handsome Boy, Samson who has found a place with us forever. All because Paul had the gift of time.

But it's time for what's next and Paul is excited about his new position. We are thrilled that our friend and best pet friend ever, Catie, will be taking care of Samson while we work.

Our Sunday was very busy. I had laundry and house chores to finish up and Paul cut the grass and emptied the hot tub. We are done with the hot tub season. :( Catie called and was having problems with her computer. After our chores, we popped over to her house to check on the machine. The good news was that it was just a loose cable and she was up and running and in no time.

Paul made chicken picata for dinner and it was fantastic. We have a 'laxing evening and looking forward to tomorrow. It's back to work for everyone! :)

Most importantly: How are you getting to work???

Must feel like the first day of school at the Honner/Krat household. Make sure he eats a good breakfast.

(Sob) I have to drive myself....but there is a possibility that we could actually carpool. We could be responsible and minimize our carbon footprint!

We are having a good breakfast - strawberries and for protein, a sausage and a litle cheese. And of course, coffee!

Full report no doubt will follow.

Lisa,
Not to worry. I have followed the advice of both you and the HR Maven/Laundry Fairy this morning. Following our walk with Samson at 0545, I had a good breakfast. Next up. getting dressed and putting on my work clothes. Yes, it is a new era here on the western edges of the Enchanted Mitten!

What?? No pictures of the Cmdr (ret.) in his new work clothes!! What's that nice little Nikon digital camera for, after all?

Will you be driving yourself to work again tomorrow, or will you require a chauffeur? Just call. :-)

Sadly, Dee will be driving herself to work for a while, or at least until I sort out my working hours.

As for my new work clothes, think khaki pants and a button downed shirt. The dress code is business casual M-Th, and relaxed casual on Friday. I saw lots of people in blue jeans today.
