I'm so glad Friday is here. I'm to the point where I'm tired of analyzing October numbers for work.
Work has been kind of hectic all week.

Wednesday night, Dad and I headed out to the Eagle for a few cigars and drinks. Chatted with a few friends and called it a night around 10pm. Last night we stayed in, watched Wednesday's episode of Lost. Dad was tired and crashed about 8pm, I watched "The Apprentice" and started to watch "ER" but finally headed to bed also. Getting up at 5pm for work sucks most days.

I'm not sure what we are doing tonight. I'm sorta broke, so not sure if we will head out to the Eagle or not. It might be a good night to rent a few movies and just kick back and relax.
Plans are to take Sparky to the dog park tomorrow afternoon and spend some time doing chores around the house.
Dad takes over as manager of the skillman branch on Monday. Last night, before he crashed, he was looking at the P&L for the store for September. He found a few things on it already that are questionable. So maybe he will be able to make the store profitable once again.

Monday will be my 5th Anniversary at work. I've asked that they not do anything to celebrate it. Just put my name on the reader board like the do every one else and let that be the end of it. But since our HR Director likes to go overboard for the members of management, I'm sure she'll see to it that everyone makes a big deal out of it. I wish my office had a lock on it

Sunday night should prove to be an interesting conversation with my Father. I'm sure we'll talk about the election results. He is a Republican, but is very moderate. I know he voted for Bush and I know his reasons. He also knows why I voted for Kerry. Politics has never been something that we have agreed on, but we both have respect for one another viewpoints. Sometimes I am able to see his point of view on things and sometimes I actually get him to see mine. Growing up, my father and I never really had conversations about anything. So I guess these types of conversations allow both of us to regain some of the connection we lost over the years.

oh well, lunch time is over. have a great weekend
