I think I may have found the cause of my blog not wanting to rebuild the main page. It was the “most viewed entries” widget. You may not have seen it because the MT wouldn’t reindex the main page with it included in the sidebar. whoduthunkit.
Anyway, I did manage to squeak in a few minutes this morning. I woke up at around a quarter ’till four and the wife had already been awake for an hour. Pre-flight jitters or just looking forward to the weekend in the Bahamas? I don’t know but I have the prescription for Xanax in my overnight bag. Just as soon as I get cleared of security I’m taking one of those bad boys and as long as I don’t start chasing peruvian midgets through the airport we’ll be alright. If I do by chance see one, I have a call to make (and you know who you are).
I think the girls are looking forward to the weekend. Michelle is coming to look after the house and the girls and provided they don’t whine her to death they will all have a good time. Most likely they will be very good since she’s not their parent. That’s the way that shit works.
I can’t remember if I have mentioned it or not but this they have been planning on re-aligning the districts and their stores. It is a highly feared and anticipated ‘event’. It’s actually been about four years since they changed the stores around other than my promotion and I just picked up the same stores the last guy had. I almost feel as if I have dodged a bullet on this one. One of my managers has been promoted and while I am out of town this week he is running my stores. As of Wednesday he picks up the Mirror Lake store and my slowest store. That’s actually a good deal. I lose money on that one and the manager there is the one that hates my guts. I am keeping my busiest store. That’s the one where the girl is in the hospital. I am somewhat upset because they are most likely going ahead and putting her on leave of absence and putting another manager in there, probably the third district manager, who has been demoted. I am getting the Temple store back and one of the stores just to the west of we. Now all three of my shops are within seven miles of me and they are all money makers. Except for the fact that one of the girls has some serious issues I picked up the best district out of the three. I must have gotten seven phone calls last night about it after the meeting.
Enough about all that crap. I am off work for the next six days now and looking forward to it. Just as soon as I get finished typing I will go shower, shit and shave and start getting ready. Hell, I would leave now if I though I could leave the girls at the school. They would probably frown on two little girls standing outside in the Elementary school parking lot at 5 a.m. though.
So has anyone heard that Greene County is going to start segregating their schools next year? Not by race though, by gender. They will be separating the boys and girls and hope to see a drastic change in test scores as well as teen pregnancies. Here’s a tip you may not have heard. They’re not getting pregnant while they are at school. Doh! I know it’s unheard of but most likely it’s when they are skipping or out doing other things. Not only that but you know what they say about absence making the heart grow fonder. That and the fact that if you tell a teenager they can’t have or do something you are generally creating a reason to go looking for it. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a rise in more than the boy’s pants by this time next year as the rate of teenage pregnancies gets higher. Then again, what the fuck do I know, I’m not an edukashun expert like the people making these decisions.
I guess that’s all my ranting for today. Time to start getting ready.
