Here are a few of the more eventful glimpses of what happened in my day today …

Dropped our daughter off at school and then made our way over to a quick lube location to get our car inspected for registration renewal, the second vehicle of ours in two days to get it done before the end of the month.  Inspections all done, one less thing to worry about. Off to work for me.  …

Got on the phone and my laptop’s webcam with two people from The Huffington Post and did everything possible to try and participate in a live streamed interview on HuffPost Live, but the web connection wouldn’t allow it and simply having me do it by phone wasn’t going to be a part of the plan.  Sadly had to face the fact that the live webcast that would have had me participating with Salon.com editor-at-large and author Joan Walsh on the middle class in America wasn’t going to happen this time.  But the door has been opened for potential appearances on HuffPost Live at a future time, like on my Thursdays off from work. …

Got some great news from our “Renaissance Man” oldest son Curtis that he’s been chosen to serve an internship in Washington, D.C., for about four months starting in early January.  He’ll apparently be serving in one of three options, for a couple of lobbying firms or for the Senate Finance Committee.  This is huge, providing him with a wonderful life experience.  There are a lot of reasons for a parent to be proud about something like this, but Curtis has surely earned this chance to live out a dream of his. …

Found out that I get to actually start trying to help customers get into the vehicles of their dreams starting first thing Saturday morning.  Now I get to start trying to earn the real money.  We’ll see how it goes.

Stay tuned.

  1. Tough break on the HuffPo interview, but here’s hoping you manage to participate in some way there somewhere down the line. And that internship sounds very cool – hope your son enjoys it and gets a lot out of it!
