Work Beckons  

Posted in ,

I was told that I'm going to receive some training this next week. The problem for me lies in the fact that it's in Tennessee. I don't have anything against Tennessee, except for the fact that it's so far from California. I'm not big on flying, and driving is obviously out of the question. So I am STUCK flying.

So I will be gone for a week, and my children are not all that happy about this development. They have told me in the past that I should just find a new job when I started having to work too many hours. So I'm hopeful that this job doesn't turn into another of those types where my kids are feeling like they compete for my time.

I'm a little excited because I get to learn some new things, and I'm definitely a student at heart. Never much of a student in the traditional classroom, but I've always enjoyed learning things in a less than orthodox setting. This week I'll learn how to save people using machinery, and some good ol' fashioned common sense too. I know the chances of me having to use this stuff will be slight, but it's a good feeling to know that it is something I'll be able to use if the need arises. Plus while I'm there, I can play tourist and look for all sorts of country stars :)

So everybody have a good week, and I'll holler when I get back, and maybe I'll even have a story or two about my little trip to Nashville. Take care and remember to be safe :)

Don't forget your camera!

Oh, definately, like Ms. A says, bring your camera!
I think you will like Tennessee...I haven't been there, but new places are always cool.
Count yourself lucky if your kids will actually miss you...

Thats exciting! Congrats my friend! I'm certain your kids will understand your 'scholarly' learning experience. :) Be happy that Dad is bettering himself, for sure. Most definitely as Ms. Anthropy says bring your camera! :D

Is there a raise in it for you? Enjoy yourself.... Are you going to be in Nashville?

I hope your trip will be fun--and since you love to learn and that you're going to learn loads there, I'm sure it will be! See you in a week!

Have fun and enjoy while there!

Depending on where you go, you may see some great things. I have to laugh because the first thing I was gonna say was "take a camera."
But that's been done...
