Bought them a card and a small giftcard (enough for a bottle of McMen wine) and surprised the heck out of them!

I wasn't able to get out and play disc golf with E and R, but that's OK, it was over 90 degrees and that's NOT pleasant for me at all. On Saturday we walked a few blocks to get to the store (we weren't enjoying the desserts there and just wanted those tiny containers of Haggen Dasz ice cream), it was after 6pm, and the sun was still so hot and burning that I got color on my legs from the walk. Tanning rays after 6pm! In Oregon!

Considering it was 100 degrees on our wedding day during an August not far from where we stayed over the weekend, I shouldn't have been surprised, and yet...I was.


Decision has been made but I'll talk about it in a week or so, not yet. Tough tough decision!
How sweet that you went to where you got married and took E wit you. We tried to take the kids to the chapel where we got married. But it is no longer standing. I was kind of sad about that. It's so sweet that you did that for the bride and groom.

I am glad that you two have been able to decide on the job issue.

We didn't go exactly where we got married, not on this trip, and he doesn't remember us visiting the place a couple years ago (remembers other obscure things from that camping trip but not that place). I kinda wanted to stop in for a snack (it's also a McMenamins place...they buy old buildings and turn them into brewpubs and event spaces) but then if it had been set up for a wedding I would have felt jealous or something weird like that. Weird mood.

That couple was so surprised! I first met them b/c I met the bride's mom...she and I were both in a cool "living room" type area at the Inn, sitting out some allergies...and we just started talking.


What's supa cool about the trip is that we finally got possession of and rights to our wedding photos. We have a great album and we bought some $$$ prints for a few people, but they've had our images all this time. They didn't even have the option to purchase negatives/JPGs (when we first hired them in '00 they used film Hasselblad cameras...then during a halt to the wedding proceedings we had, they switched to digital and didn't tell us when we re-hired them...that caused some BAD feelings when I realized it ON our wedding day, but the images are just fine...I was anti-digital until about '04 and I got over it, LOL) when we first hired them. But then there was a big fire in the warehouse district where their building was....I guess the photog and his wife lost their OWN wedding negatives in the fire, and after that they WANTED to have their couples own their images outright. So we were finally able to do that, and although it's terrifying, it's wonderful as well.

I thought I had been the only hold out on the digital front. Now I wish that there had been digital cameras when the kids were little. I was that way with cds, dvds, and mp3 too. Silly I know.

Ooh I held out on CDs for SO long!!!!! I remember having a long argument with a guy I knew in college, all about the sound, the clarity, richness, the FEEL of LPs vs the awful tone of CDs. Criminy, what was I thinking?

We haven't seen Titanic either...we're just stubborn!

********

Robert goes and makes a decision (by the time he left for work this morning we'd hashed out all we could, and the ball was completely in his court, no recriminations from me about whichever thing he opted to do), and finds out that two companies really really REALLY want him and are willing to put up a fight. This is not a bad thing! But it takes a solid decision and turns it into a "what happens next" sort of thing!

This along with the changes he's feeling from the prolactinoma treatment is going to help his self esteem so much! This time next year I probably won't even recognize what I know about him from this year. (poorly worded sentence)

He has customer service, e-commerce, Lead (management), and computer tech skills. He also has sales skills from his time at Saturn. He's also very personable and can teach/train anyone (but me) to do anything. He interviews very well (as long as his hair is cut, otherwise he looks beastly, LOL). He has never burned bridges (unlike me...when I quit amazon and drugstore, both, I quit by email at the very last minute and even got my immediate supervisor fired at amazon...well, I helped at least b/c I documented what he was doing and saying when no one else had done that), and he maintains friendships and contacts.

He is shocked by all of this, really! He didn't even get 2 years finished at college, and that has been a chip on his shoulder for years and years. But he applies for the jobs he thinks he can do, even if they state "bachelors degree required", because he knows that in most cases he can show that he knows what they need him to know.

Honestly, I didn't see Titanic and I have never seen a Star Wars movie either. I resist change. We still camp in a tent and not in a RV. Old fashioned I guess. I think all of the growth in Robert since they started to actually treat him is wonderful.

No Star Wars movies???? Fainting.

We camp in a tent too. A big tent, as we like being able to stand up, but a tent all the same.

We have moved from using one big tent to using to medium size tents. The kids are teenagers. Well, as of the 25 they will all be teenagers. The girls need more privacy so they have their own tent. Still right with us, but kind of like having their own room.

Nope, no Star Wars, and I am sure there are others I have missed. I didn't miss any of the POTC ones. But, the only one I saw in the theater was the second one.

I'm a rebel.

Sounds very talented! sales skills are always good, and personality is #1 in my book! Good luck with whatever he chooses...it's nice to be in demand!

Hi all!


This has nothing to do with anything, but I hadn't seen it mentioned online anywhere, and I just wanted to state for my own little record how COOL it is that today is 7-8-9. Can't wait until August 9th next year.

Someone on my FB mentioned that at 12:34 and 56 seconds this morning, it was, of course, 123456789. So he was far more clever than I was.


Got my photopass CD. Feel silly for spending that money on so few pictures, but oh well! Research purposes, right?

And of course we got our wedding pictures all on DVD (aka CD...not like they are a movie, but officially they are on DVDs, Robert must remind me each time I say CD). So I have a feeling that a new photograph/CD organizational system is coming up, and perhaps some picture posts just for the heck of it.

Oh that sounds fun. We are going up to the gold country tomorrow. I think that I will post pictures on an old thread I started with pictures from the state and I will put it in my signature again. We were gonna go to Lake Tahoe but we have so many errands to run before hand that we would be leaving too late for a full day. I know I would enjoy seeing your pictures. I forgot to mention I am on FB too. I started because I wanted to do the HOJO thing.
