I had my first "sales pitch" meeting this afternoon (at about 14 hours of official time on the clock since coming back). Money...everyone wants MORE money to make life just a bit simpler - so they say. I'm not sold. I want more money too, you know. Who doesn't?
The boys are doing just fine at daycare. Everyone is enjoying having a new baby in the mix, and having Dominic there is entertaining for the older gang. Donovan is being silent about having his two brothers there in "his territory". The twin cousins enjoy being the "big helpers" for the Avila-clan. I hope my boys don't come home with Dora panties or pink crocs! Devin was exhausted with yesterday's entertainment, that he slept upon my arrival and the entire trip home. There's nothing like getting a "happy to see you" smile after a long day - his was just delayed for a bit.
I guess Starbuck's is closing a bunch of stores. Go figure! I suppose it's best they do so, for my sake. I attempted to reward myself (it's always a reward, isn't it?) yesterday before coming into work. I entered a nearby Save-Mart with a Starbuck's kiosk and discovered it empty. I turn to an employee, "what, you don't do Starbuck's anymore?" ... to which she replied, "no ma'am, it's been gone for over a month". Guess that shows how loyal a customer I am to that store. I made sure to visit Java City today - inside a Raley's (where I AM a loyal customer).
