A walk

October 24, 2016 Monday

9:00AM Sassy
Good morning!  How goes?

9:06AM Phil
Good, just ordered my sprinkler system.  I have been fighting with hoses all year to keep the grass and flowers watered and gave in. Everyone here has gorgeous lush green lawns, no weeds and it’s hard to get there without a system. Saturday I’ll be able to hear my little heads pop up and start watering

9:06AM Sassy
Oooh!
We have those here.

9:09AM Phil
Gotta get them in fall, price goes way up in spring

9:14AM Sassy
Excellent thinking

9:42AM Sassy
You working at home?

9:44AM Phil
My day off, cleaning my garage

9:44AM Sassy
Woohoo.

9:45AM Phil
Got tunes, cold beer and a sense of accomplishment! All good

9:45AM Sassy
Indeed!
11:07AM Sassy
Tell me not to send email telling off my new boss…

11:11AM Phil
Don’t do that. Never, ever works out

11:13AM Sassy
Thanks.  I’m out for a walk instead

Hey I think I finally recovered from my trip
I have been very tired and lots going on at work.
How have you been?
Sassy
Great!  I had an adventure to RI today
German lunch in Bristol, beach in Little Compton, had a divine dinner on the bay in Tiverton. 
Randy
Oh sounds tremendous.  
I had a burger for dinner.
Sassy
Yum
Randy
Spent most of the weekend sleeping
Sassy
Good! 
Randy
Almost feel normal again
Sassy
Hooray! 
Randy
Yeah work has gone crazy though
Sassy
OH? 
Randy
Yeah you know how people are. 
Love to power grab
Sassy
Ewww
Randy
Exactly
Sassy
Can you escape?  
Or grab something yourself? 
Randy
No I am in charge in a way.  
I am looking for a new gig… way too strange of a place
Sassy
Hard to tell when you interviewed there? 
Randy
I am looking at startups where there is a very small group
That way there is less politics
Sassy
Have a little beach moment

Busy. Took snacks to a project work day yesterday, then went to a surprise birthday party
Randy
Sounds fun
Sassy
It had its moments
Randy
I mowed the lawn and worked around outside… I
 would argue a bit less fun
Sassy
Maybe so… 
but productive!  
Randy
Yes true… not so fun
Sassy
Get close to me… I will help you have some fun! 
Randy
I like your thinking
Sassy
Depends on what you think is fun, I suppose 
Randy
Many things are fun.
Sorry I guess I’m still tired
Sassy
No worries… good to hear from you no matter how you’re doing. 
Get some more sleep? 
I’m headed that way 
Randy
Yea I’m off to bed myself.  
Sorry

Take care of yourself.  
Hope tomorrow is better!

Hiya Brett, 
Hope your had a great Sunday!  I was thinking of you, wondering if you got to relax.  
Hubby and I escaped to RI today!  I had a delightful German lunch in Bristol, then we went to the beach!  It was so peaceful.  The sky was so clear, I swear we could see Martha’s Vineyard on the horizon.  We stopped at some farms… the colors of the pumpkins and veggies and apples made for beautiful photos.  Then it was off to dinner at The Boat House – a spectacular baked stuffed lobster.  Yum.  It was glorious to get out and about.  
Are you gearing up for Halloween?  You seemed so excited about it this time last year. 
Take care!  Have a great week!  Hugs with groping!

Re: October afternoons
Sassy,
Life has been hectic for the last few weeks.  My project at work has taken off and there is an endless string of deadlines approaching.  We spent the last week in training, all five days.  I had to take off some time from the training in the last two just to get some of my regular work done.
Home life is stressful lately as well with a medical issue (not mine) that may turn out to be nothing, or may be more serious…more tests to be done.  All of this has made it difficult to think about getting together, but I would look forward to some time.  I’m sure I have some vacation that’s available, but I haven’t even taken the time to figure that out.  
Just wanted to let you know what is going on…I will be looking for another opportunity but still don’t see it on the horizon.

RE: October afternoons
Hiya Brett!  So great to hear from you!  I was starting to worry.  
Sorry work and life have been hectic, but thanks for saying.  I will send healthy vibes that the tests don’t turn out serious but I am here for you either way.  I want you… I miss you but I understand and don’t want to add to your stresses.  
Had a fun time today taking snacks to a community project meeting.  Then I took sushi to a surprise birthday party.  Whee!  
So excited for the Cubs and Cleveland in the World Series – interested to see which of the Red Sox alums prevails.  
Take care dear man!
