We are closing on the sale of our extra home on Thurs.
As part of the sale negotiation the buyers requested a number of minor repairs. In lieu of those repairs we offered them a $500 repair allowance that they will receive at closing and they can do whatever repairs they choose. They accepted with the exception of wanting us to have a sprinkler head on irrigation zone 1. We agreed to have that repaired.
I hope you all had a great day with your spawn regardless of their biology and also with your SOs on your day.
A day that celebrates mothers and all they do for their children and families.
When we visited SpermLand a couple of weeks ago we spent most of our time with my ILs.
Never in a million years would I have ever thought this was even possible from that group of toothless morons. But... they surprised me,
We headed to SpermLand a week ago this past Saturday to visit with my ILs. Our kid was in the States for a week following his TDY to Colorado Springs and took a week of leave to hang with his mom and I.
Just picked up the Skid. He was sent on a TDY from Germany to Colorado and just finished his symposium. We get a relatively short notice visit with the Spawn. My bride is one happy mom.
I am happy to have him home as well. This kid is a beast! He moved from a big house in a small village about 40mins drive from the base to a townhouse 5mins from the base. He has used his better commute on Gym time. It shows.
Where is he now? At the Gym.
I am in a work transition. The company I joined a year ago is going through a huge overhead cost reduction effort, has released several executives and senior managers and demoted several more. As the "new guy" hired to help transform the company I was not deemed critical to operations and my role was eliminated.
I have been doing some remote consulting work and networking to find a new role.
Lots of interesting stuff going on in Rags' world. My company just went through an overhead slashing re-organization and my role was eliminated. So... I am knee deep in a new job search. The company eliminated several vice presidencies, demoted several executives and abandoned the strategic direction that I was hired to lead.
Got a call from the kid on Friday and then again today.
The good news. SS-26 has finally completed his ASCS and has applied for a university to complete his BSCS. As it stands it looks like he is on his dad's 11yr undergrad schedule. Hey, no one said I was the best example of focus in the accademia world.br
He tests for E-6 either April 1 or May 1. I can't remember which. It was quick conversaton and focused on the summary of his life for the past 6wks.
I appologize for the ungentlemanly wording I have used in some of our discussions.
That was not fair of me.
I looked at your profile to get some perspective on your blended family situation/history. There is not much info on your profile. None actually. Only that you have been a member for less than a year.
Please share some of your blended family history so that I and others can gain a better understanding of where you are coming from.
I will make an effort to learn more regarding where you are coming from with your comments.
