What Can You Do? They're Family!

This weekend was very interesting. At the goodbye party my family threw for me, I yelled at one of my nieces. I mean I screamed. And I have never in all of their years ever screamed in front of them. I don't think that they have ever heard me yell. But the oldest neice was being obnoxious. And then my mom went to defend her behaviour and I left. However, I just needed some away time, so I drove back after going home to change clothes and take a cold shower. My mom made my neice apologize and my sister downplayed the incident, but they missed the entire point that my neice is spoiled and needs to listen to all of her older relatives, not just the ones that she feels like listening to. Until that happens, my neice and I will have a bad relationship. Then there was this whole thing with gifts, but I won't get into it. Let's just say that my buying gifts for the family is on hold for the foreseeable future. But overall, it was a good time and it was good to see my family one last time all together. I can't let one argument spoil all of the good stuff that happened.

Sunday was a lot different, I had to focus most of the day on all of the packing, sorting, and storing that I had to do to. I still haven't settled on a storage place, but I wanted to select a storage place that had a bit more security and better lighting than the place I originally looked at. I will have to find something in the next few days, and I have to reserve a rental van in order to move all of my things. It seems like I have put things off until the last minute, but since these things cost money, I don't want to spend more than I need to. For the time being, all of this costs is coming out of pocket, but I am confident that IBM will reimbursement me for some of it sooner or later. I just need to keep all of the receipts.

Another cool thing on Sunday is that my roommate, Jason, and watched Sex and the City together for the last time, and he brought an ice cream cake. That was cool. A lot of people don't have friends like Jason anymore, so I am one of the lucky ones. Since he was leaving the next morning to go to his consulting engagement in New Jersey, Monday was the last time I saw him.

Anyway, there's just so much going on at the moment, from trying to make payment arrangements for companies I deal with that don't have websites or electronic billing, to a bunch of things, there's just no more time to waste. U-Haul continues to be my best friend so that I can buy packing and moving supplies. OK, time to get going...I've got work to do.

Ciao, Rodney
