Of course I am doing my best to get around the city, the kids have soccer practice, they have karate and dance class, they have play dates with their cousins on the other side of town. Right now it is a real mess to get around at our house though. The problems involve sewer cleaning in Hudson county, which they are doing all around us. There are two different ways that you can get in and out of our neighborhood and they are using both of them. Lately it seems as though they randomly close one of them and it is always the one that I try to use to get out of here. I end up having to circle back and it seems as though every other fool in the whole world is right there beside me trying to go where I am going at the exact same time.
Of course I am just complaining because it is all not going my way, but in fact I try not to show that I am frustrated with the kids. They need to learn how to deal with it when the world does not go the way that you would like for it to go. I am pretty much living a dream life when you think about, we have every thing that you need in this world really. I have a great wife and three kids who seem to pretty great even when you step back and look at them critically. It seems to me as though Joan is probably a genius and even if she is not, she works so hard at her school work that it may not matter. The teachers think we should skip her over the third grade and let her go on to the fourth grade already.
