Work has kept me very busy this week. I announced that I will be staying at the lake house this weekend with my boys and my dog. If anyone wanted to join me, okay. I’m exhausted, I need a break and I’m taking it. Everyone kind of laughed then said okay. We decided my wife is going to stay in town because she has to catch up on work. Sarah is going out-of-town to…well she never said but she gets weekends off so go have fun, Sarah. The part-time nannies will be joining me. At first my wife said no. Then I said this is what I pay them for, to help me on the weekends. So she changed and said okay. She tends to forget I look at those 2 (and Sarah as well) as my older kids. We have little arguments, we are probably too comfortable around each other and we all understand I am the dad Lol I hear myself talk to them as if I am their dad and they either roll their eyes at me or they stand there with a completely blank look on their faces and say “K”, my least favorite word/letter in the whole alphabet. Lindz has “K”‘ed me for the past 22 years now and it drives me nuts.
I’m going to hang out, read, play with my two best sons in the whole world and finally get a bunch of time to play with my dog. He’s been a little neglected this week and that’s all of my fault. When my boys are taking a nap I will take him for a long jog. He needs it and I haven’t exercised at all this week.
We are moving into our new office building next weekend. Coordinating that has been a nightmare. The new office is not that far from the older one but getting a permit to park a giant moving truck to unload all of our stuff has been a hassle. The City of Chicago (I love you) and these permits can kiss my ass. You have to get a permit to park, a permit to zone off a certain area for a restricted amount of time and probably a permit to even sneeze. It’s ridiculous. But I really hope this is our last move as the new building is huge. A lot more floors, a lot more space and a killer office for me. That’s all I wanted. Lindsay is very happy with her office which is right next to my office. She will spend almost no time in it so I asked why she needed it. She said for show and to let everyone know she will be popping in whenever she’s in town. I really, really wonder how all of this is going to play out. My retirement does not equal I lose all control of my businesses. It means I’m no longer managing any of it day-to-day and I show up for board meetings about once a month. I told Lindz not to power trip once she and my 2 VP’s take over. She laughed and said “Oh it’s happening” Lol
I’m really tired and worn out. This week has been really busy for me. I have had 2 book signings already and I haven’t updated about those yet. That was fun. They were in the ‘burbs of Chicago.
I have, let me look, I think 2 more to do? Unless they make me do more which is their option. We shall see.
I need to get everyone up for the day. Enjoy my blog, oh ye who had been cast aside and play nice. Or Lindsay will ban you…again.
P.S. As always I googled that image I’m using for my Featured Image. I typed in Chicago Spring and I liked how it looked. Please stop sending me comments about the images I use as the Featured Ones. 99% of them are off of google. I don’t post personal photos here unless otherwise noted. All of my personal stuff is on my Facebook.
