So… some time ago I sent out an email entitled, “Lead from the front.”  You may have noticed that the email had nothing to do with the title.
That’s because it didn’t.

I was working on another email when my son’s vehicle flipped six times on Interstate 70.  After the accident, my life became a confusing tailspin.  So, among other mistakes, I sent a misnamed email.

Some day, I may send the email that I was working on.

Life is starting to become a bit “normal” again.  My family and I left Athens, where I was studying Greek, and moved to Aurora, Colorado, where my son wrecked.  He spent two weeks in the Intensive Care Unit and he is now living in a rehabilitation hospital.  They say he will be there for at least a month.

My wife spends a lot of time at the hospital.  My girls and I are there too, but not as much.

As you can imagine, much has changed in our lives.  I know many of you have lived through similar situations.

Before the wreck, I rarely spent time in stores.  My wife is far better at shopping.  Since the wreck, I have ended up shopping more.  In other words, I now spend a lot of time wandering up and down aisles looking for items.  Usually, I end up bugging the workers.  Can you help me find ___________?

Fortunately, if you have a smartphone, help is available.  This application actually helps you locate items in the store… by aisle!

Likely, this app is only useful for the guys reading this. My wife and daughters just roll their eyes at me.  Somehow, they know where everything is located in stores.  I don’t know how they do this.

If you are like me, check out Shops!  Save yourself some frustration and save yourself some time.

Have a happy Monday!

P.S.  If you are in one of my online classes, and if you are wondering, the answer is, “Yes. Classes WILL resume tomorrow.”

And, finally, if you are waiting for a response from me, hang in there.  Doing my best to catch up.
