O/T - Ughh. Sitting at work, waiting....

I have a contractor in the plant today doing some installation work.  So, I am sitting here on a Saturday finding anything I can to distract me from writing procedures. Which I detest writing.

The vision that my boss and the execs aligned on when I accepted the job was that I would define, build, tool, staff, lead, and replicate the organization I was hired to deliver. 

A decidedly pleasant and nondrama SpermLand visit with the IL clan.

DW flew out Wed AM at the butt crack of dawn to spend some time with my MIL. As usual, DW did not just see her mom, she crammed in time with anyone and everyone immaginable.  Though at least this time she did not exhaust herself doing it.  I flew to SpermLand Friday evening. DW and MIL picked me up at the airport and we headed the 2hrs south back toward DW's small town, dropped MIL of at her sister's house to pick up her car about 20miles from the small town my IL clan lives in.

Petty, cringing, visceral revulsion, my skin is crawling gag moment.

When DW is getting ready to visit her family she starts using voice inflections, speech paterns, and facial expressions that are a family thing.  Beyond the IL clan family tone, inflections, wording, etc... are  the additional and amplified version mY SIL uses.  DW adopts a few things that are very similar to what my thief assed POS lying weasle of an SIL does though without the whiney "I'm spe.....cial" toddler thing that the POS SIL does.

Failed family toxicity way too close to home.

Todays active shooter event in Las Vegas was in my DW's office bldg. It occurred on a different floor than where she works.

The event killed a lawyer, and his new wife who he was representing during a deposition. Apparently the shooter who also killed himself, was also a lawyer, and the XFIL of the murdered wife.  The XFIL was representing his son.  Reports are that the XH/son of the shooter was in the deposition.  The dead couple recently had a baby.  The victim lawyer is a father of 4.

Binge watching murder mysteries on TUBI.

Two so far. A Vigilante and Big Driver. Both about abused women who go ape shit on their abusers.  A Vigilante is particularly disturbing.  It is about an abused woman who starts resolving issues for other abused women.  I cheered her on but the circumstances of her situation and the women and kids she helps 

What stands out are the similarities between the movies and so many SP marriages where repeat emotional, financial, residential, etc, etc, etc abuse happens and it is tolerated for far too long.  

Happy Easter, Passover, Ramadan.

Mom, dad, and DW picked me up at the airport at 20:00 on Friday evening.  We had a great quick weekend at mom and dad's.  Saturday we had breakfast with mom, dad, niece, and her DH then went to my brother's house for a morning visit on Saturday. We ended up having lunch at my brothers "club". 

Have I mentioned that my baby bro is a business executive savant?  He has done exceptionally well.  No envy on my part.  Just pure pride in the man, DH, dad, son, brother, and leader that he is.  Please give me a lump in my throat proud big brother reset moment. Ha... hmmmm.

Its alive!!!

We got proof of life yesterday.  It started with a text.  "Sorry, I am having memory problems and keep forgetting to call.".

We both got home early enough to speak with him. He sounded good, works seems to be going well. I always get nervous when he goes radio silent as this was highly indicative of poor performance when he was in his late HS phase.

His cat is apparently demanding, happy, and torturing  him. I like this cat.
