350 - no that's got nothing to do with gas prices

Greg Maddux won his 350the career game on Saturday against the Colorado Rockies. Ninth on the all-time list doesn't sound like much until you put in perspective that the next pitcher to probably accomplish that hasn't even been born yet. Many are suggesting in this age of pitch counts and six man starting rotations that it might not ever happen again.

Our kitchen was started yesterday. They put down the mud on the countertops. Today they will lay the tile and tomorrow they will grout it. I took pics with my phone, but not with another camera. I'm excited about the kitchen. I can't wait to see it all finished. Right now we have no kitchen to speak of. The stove is in the center of the room. There are tarps and brown paper laid all over the floor and thru the family room out the slider to the backyard. It's a mess right now, but when it's all done I think it will be beautiful. I chose a dark color on purpose. I was/am so sick of the white counters that I wanted to go dark. I got as close as I could without selecting black, which I would have had I found one I really liked.

The FDA came through last week to audit my company. With luck that went well and they will open the budget flood gates and offer me a full time position. Although I will make more as a contractor, there is always the possibility of my contract being terminated early or after this contract ends, not being brought back on.

Our youngest has decided he would now like to take the ASVAB again. He called the tutor and scheduled to meet with him this Friday. We agreed to pay for half ($200), but he has to pay the other half. We also made the deal that if he doesn't get at least a 40 he has to pay us back the $200. He agreed to that. He still wants the Coast Guard, but I read online yesterday the Army is offering enlistment bonuses between $20-$40,000. Just to sign up for four years. That's pretty damn impressive.

It's just been one of those weeks for me. I don't know what's wrong with me.
