Howdy Angel!

Hello Angel  –

If you’ve had a chance to absorb my recent posts, (on and working class hero, part 1), you’ll see that it’s been an interesting year for me, “career” wise.

I’d LOVE to be retired right now, but, (darn it!!), we just spend way too much money.

It appears, if all goes well, that I will be working in Atlanta soon.  (I have two more-or-less job offers, so I’m hoping at least one of them doesn’t fall through.)

This will be stressful for the family, just like it was when I was working in Columbus.  So Angel, I am asking you to help guide us, to be with us and help us through the additional hazards my new job will cause us to face.

We are all doing well here.  Kuya and Dodong are growing up, and dealing with their allergies fairly well.  (Can you believe that Dodong is allergic to fish, of all things?)  Dodong just started school for the first time, (pre kindergarten), and Sweetie is still home schooling Kuya, who now is in fourth grade!  Sweetie herself is doing okay.  Her allergies seem under control with the allergy shots she gets, the only side effect being the grumbling Grump, (me!), does when he receives the bill.  Lola is tough as ever, doing much of the work, (washing dishes, cleaning up after the boys), with never, ever a complaint.  (At least as far as I know.  Then again, I don’t speak Cebuano!)

As for me, I am getting older, fatter, and grumpier with each passing day.  Fortunately the rest of the family tolerates me, (maybe because I am the only one earning any money?), which is very, very fortunate for an old grump like me.

To summarize all this: we are excited and nervous for my new contract.  We hope I am able to find a way to live cheaply in Atlanta during the week, so that we can save as much money from this contract as possible.  (Wouldn’t it be awful if we only broke even on this new job, or, worse yet, actually LOST MONEY?)  There are many potential pitfalls we want to avoid, and we are hoping with your help we can completely avoid them.

We all love you, our little Angel, and sooner than any of us realize we’ll all be together!
