You never know what to expect

And that is doubly true when you are going home for your fathers 50th birthday party and bringing your boyfriend! Brien and I had agreed to make the trek down for my dad's 50th a few weeks back when the party plan involved some close friends and a nice dinner. After we had confirmed the party 'blossomed' into a grander scheme involving a surprise party at a retirement home with a faith based couples group from my parents church. While I was used to dealing with my parents church groups I think Brien was a bit put off by all the strangers from such a different world as ours.

Aside from that it was a really fun trip. As much as I don't like driving long distances like that I really enjoyed spending the time with Brien. Skype of course enjoyed getting to go see his grandparents (and they of course always enjoy a chance to see their grand-pup) so all in all fun was had by all. I'm really looking forward to next weekend as I've finally been able to schedule some quality time with my couch and have a weekend at home doing very little.

On the work front I'm glad to report that things are still improving. I have three deals stacked up for this month already and more in my pipeline. I had one that was a faulty close on Friday and was kind of stressed out about that over the weekend, but this morning I managed to make everything fall into place. If I can keep this up my financial future is looking rosy - I just hope that the analysts are wrong about us heading into a bit of a lull in the tech world - I missed the big money from the first tech boom and I sure as hell don't want to miss the big paycheck from the second one!
