Peace…it’s ova. Chuckdadeuces at the state of Minnesota. As many of you know, I have spent the last 4 months doing contract work for a company that was located in Minneapolis. The assignment is now over and I’m back in Atlanta. It was a great experience. I had my apprehensions at first. I mean, I had prayed for the job and the Lord heard my prayer but I didn’t expect that the job would take me away from my family. But it worked out. The company paid for me to fly back to Atlanta on the weekends, hotel suite, rental car, and per diem. So, I can’t complain. The job paid well and that’s ALWAYS a good thing. I’m glad to be back home. There’s nothing betta than being with your family. I missed em. The next assignment starts in a few weeks but it’ll be here…and that’s a good thing.
I was glad that I didn’t see Minnesota in the winter time. However, the weather there is very strange. When I got there in March, it was 65 degrees. Three days later…it snowed. In fact, the last day that we saw snow was April 15. I will miss those 80 degree summer days. While y’all were dealing with the brutal summer heat or the endless rainy days, we had very good weather. Gotta give a shout out to fellow bloggers Arafasse and Sexxy Luv. Sorry we didn’t get a chance to link up. Maybe next time. It was good kickin it in your city, tho.
Minnesota does have black people. I was under the impression that we weren’t there but we are. Not like New York, Atlanta or Houston but we’re there.
Even though there was somebody who cleaned my room every day, I would make sure that I didn’t leave my room messy before I went to work. I know... it’s strange.
Club Seven is nice
Minneapolis might be one of the most liberal places that you’ll find. Race doesn’t seem to be an issue. It has to be the capital for interracial relationships. Almost EVERYBODY is in a interracial relationship.
I didn't go fishing. In fact, I caused a huge raucus in the office when I made the confession that despite having grown up in the state of South Carolina, I've never been fishing. After I said that, everybody was trying to take me out on a nearby lake. In the land of 10,000 lakes...I bypassed all of em.
I have a great wife. She really held it down while I was gone. Not only did she have to deal with our 3 lil ones but the every day drama at work. Not to mention, running around…taking Deion to baseball practice…etc. Keeping the house in order and then only being able to see me on the weekends. Sometimes I’d be home every other weekend and I know that had to be tough. But that’s what she is…tough. Strong black woman. If the shoe were on the other foot and she left and I had to do it all…I dunno if I could have done what she did. Period. I’m thankful and blessed to have her.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Nuff said
