Father-Daughter Weekend (Survived It, Too!)

This past weekend was a nice time for "G" and I to spend some time together. No, that's not she and I on the beach...just seemed like a nice, relaxing picture of a dad and his little girl. :)

Mommy went to Mississippi to catchup with some girlfriends from church. She left Thursday morning (4/3) and came back Sunday (4/6). She had a great time...but had a rather tornatic weekend:

What a weekend to pick! Actually, the scary thing is that the damage is described as worse than Katrina. But in reality she "blew through" Jackson having already mortally scarred the coast. These were direct strikes by mother nature to Central Mississippi.

So, Thursday I worked from home and G went to daycare a.k.a "school" at USDA. She enjoys the place. G went to Poppy & Grammy's to spend the night. She had fun with them on Friday and then we met for burgers at 5 Guys (the best burger joint around). Saturday morning was all about cinnamon rolls and cartoons, lunch, nap, going to Lowe's and helping me at the storage unit, some Taco Bell, bath time, bunch of Bugs Bunny episodes, and bedtime. A really good day. We had a ton-o-fun that only cost some Taco Bell. ;)

I had to post the pic of her at right doing "cheerleader hands" at the NCAA Women's Basketball 1st & 2nd Rounds. What a cutie.

Sunday was church, lunch with Poppy & Grammy, nap, and picking up Mommy from the airport.

Wow, Georgia's growing up so fast. Seems kinda silly to say since she'll be 4 end of July...but then there was a time I couldn't imagine a child in our life. Now, I couldn't imagine life without her.

Being Intentional After A Layoff

One week ago today, I was laid off. It's still rather surreal. But I believe even in a layoff, one can be intentional.

Today, working for a company more than a few years is rare. There was a time when being an employee for one, two, or even three decades was admired and rewarded. In the tech industry, three years seems the average. 
After three years, a worker can become an oddity. With nine years at AOL, I must've been a fossil. I wondered sometimes if people thought I had no ambition to "climb the corporate ladder." Or if I was one-dimensional and didn't wish to better myself. Else, why would one stay at the same job for nine years?

Turtle Invaders Are Here!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zyrobotics, LLC for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

It's sad to think that some of you reading this have never heard of or played Space Invaders. Ah, the memories of playing that game at the mall arcade (something else long gone)! Sigh. Now, multiple game platforms exist and few games are more convenient than those playable via apps on your phone. With a wink at the classic Space Invaders approach, Turtle Invaders is a new app for younger children and children with special needs. I downloaded it and took it for a spin.
