California Dreaming

      Motivation is a problem today. I am flying to California tommorrow for my sisters wedding on saturday and I Just want this day to end. But it just doesn't want too. even after I get out from the Shop I have to go home and walk the dogs, Pack and then get dressed to go to my Bartending Gig at Worcester's Home of the Blues till 2am.Then I get to go Home and walk the dogs shower and leave for the airport for my 7am flight. So I can be reunited with the Wonkettes. I got a tearfull call from my oldest wonkette who was melting down after a long day at Disney Land. It is the one thing that always makes me smile That my daughter loves and misses me so much. I Know I am not the Best dad but I try my best. Sometimes I wonder though Would they be better off without me?? But then calls like that and I know why I stay.

So 26 hours till my flight. I was hoping it would be WARM in California but I guss I will have to settle for Warmer than Worcester, Mass. mid 50's boooo. Hope everyone has a great weekend I know I will.

My Wife Left and Took the Kids.

My Wife took the Kids and Left this Morning. (cue Country Song) Well I should be grateful she didn't take my dog or the truck right?

Their Flight to Cali for my sisters upcoming wedding was at 8am. She spoke to the doctor yesterday and informed him that.

  1. she was feeling better.
  2. she was going to cali no matter what he said.

Phew disaster Avoided. The kids missing disney would have been bad. But as I predicted the other day they split down the middle. The oldest Wonkette said she wasn't going without Mrs. Wonka. The Youngest who is my Mini Me said she would go with my Parents cause there was no way she was going to miss out on Disney Land.

So As of 5:15 this morning I am separated from my wife. The house did seem quiet this morning. I could actually get used to this.

Now I just have to find something to do with myself for the next 2 nights. I guess I could just do what I usually do which is Stay in and Play Poker online. Tonight is Bodog Blogger Tournament.
