The late V-Man

Wow, the week went fast! It's Friday already and unlike my normal TGIF feelings, I'm not sure it's a good thing. Work continues to be very busy and the days go by quickly. We're hiring two more people to go out and travel for us. I'm the only clerical so that will mean even more work for me. I guess it's job security!

V-Man's ex came over to measure and have our old blinds cut down to fit the house windows. The windows in the apartment were huge. My son took the blinds down and we moved them along with all of the other stuff. The strings were horribly tangled up into each other, though. I would have untangled them before she arrived, had I noticed.

I'm not so sure that she still is an ex. She and V-Man may be sort of back together. After the trauma of a move, that may be a good thing. I'm not so sure I want to hang out with him much, at least for awhile. My son does (and recently said it) regard him as a father figure. We all were together for six years from the time son was 6 to around 12, formative years. And of course friends after that.

Blinds-Lady and V-Man are probably more well-suited to each other. For one thing neither has any sense of time. I don't know how a person could get to their respective ages and not be on time for anything, ever! Guess I'm just a stickler for it. But waiting for hours only to be told "Today isn't a good day, how about tomorrow?" is a waste of my time. V-Man does not like waiting either, he's very impatient. Maybe that's why he's always late, so he seldom has to wait for anyone, they all are waiting for him. Oh well. I like my house so it was worth it. I just don't want to ever ever do that sort of a move again.

Have a great day and a wonderful weekend!

I'm with you on the punctuality deal. I hate being late for anything so adjusting toa life with a wife and two kids who keep slowing me down has been a challenge. It's great fun, but I've given up on being early for anything ever again.

I agree puntuality is a must when others depend on you.
I say i weill be someplace at a certain time I am early just to make sure nothing goes wrong but I know many epople who never get there on time and dont seem to care.
My brother comes to mind.
He has had us wait for hours to have xmas dinner every year.

Have a nice weekend

Oddly enough, both Cuppa and I are of the punctual persuasion.

I always feel so disrespected when someone makes me wait, as though his/her time is more important than mine. Luckily i don't hold a grudge or I wouldn't have a husband, family member or friend left.
