Good Day Dad,

Sounds like mom has her hands full with her family.  It’s about time for Grandma to stop living on her own I would think.  Since mom is the trustee I wonder if the relatives will become a pain in the bum for her about dividing up the assets when it comes time.  Don’t let mom get too stressed out about those monkeys, she’ll probably need a little support.

I’ve got your advice and will follow it during the job search.  I only wish I could agree with the fact that they like learners.  From my vista, I can only see employers who look for cogs, or people that can perform one and only one specific function.  It kind of makes me sad.  But I’ll keep the head up and I’m 100% positive I’ll have something by the end of June.  I understand completely that the “perfect job” doesn’t exist and my strategy is to find any job in a great location. 

I was thinking Vietnam because it truly is paradise with perfect weather.  I could hate my job but still be able to motivate myself to work hard since the location would keep my spirits up.  Also, from what you’ve enabled me to experience, the most important thing in life for me is learning and helping others.  I honestly do not desire to buy “things” like most people do.  I find so much joy in books, writing and helping other people.

About Mother’s Day, I just sent a card for mom and bought her a CD from Amazon.com which should arrive soon.

Oh, and one last item.  My one-day contacts are almost gone.  I checked their website but it says they must be acquired through an “eye care provider.”  So I’m guessing we’ll have to call my doctor in Columbus and order them through him.  I only have one packet left so if I could get them relatively soon, I’d really really appreciate it.  Otherwise, I won’t be able to check out the chicks at the gym very well.

Thanks Dad,
