All good things must end…

CGMan is leaving today to go back to work. And by work, I mean going to meetings, lunches and playing golf. He makes a pretty good wage, the unfortunate part is he does all of that in Abu Dhabi.

We had a great time during the six weeks he’s been home. Well, except for that whole removing the prostate thing. Otherwise, it was a fun visit for him. He leaves me with these little conversational nuggets:

“Do you have any earphones? The ones that came with my iPod are too big. I have small earholes. That’s why I can’t hear you sometimes.”

Sitting on the patio, watching the Skater spread mulch, “You know, some people pay good money to have this done” 
Spreading the 27th bag of mulch, the Skater mumbles, “Those people obviously don’t have kids”

“Why does mud on your shoe come off easier than dog sh*t?”

Calling a pedestrian a dumbass after he almost ran him over while making a right hand turn onto a left hand one way street.

And my personal favorite: “Have some more wine”


Lucky for me, with the advent of Skype, he can continue to amuse me from afar.


  1. Sorry he has to go back. Be safe CGMan.

  2. Thank you Dawn for a great 6 weeks. I could not imagine having spent it without you. You make everyday a wonderful day for me. I'll miss you...but am looking forward to your return trip to Abu Dhabi in November.

    One of my more memorable conversational nuggets while I was here was hearing you say "Isn't it time for a vodka and tonic?" This usually occurred sometime around 5pm.

    I love you Dawn.


  3. Oh, I love the comments as much as the post. :-D

  4. Oh, I love that CGMan left that comment. What a sweetheart you have. Glad you're getting to see him again in November.


I would love to hear what you have to say!
