I'm back.


Back in school.

Already, I have hit the ground running with no time for rest. I was up at 5am yesterday...worked all day and am back at it today.

Saturday morning.

Would I rather be outside playing with my dogs, frolicking in the park, drinking coffee and reading the paper....absolutely....but, just for the record, I LOVE what I do....and, despite my protests, I love the adrenaline of working down to the wire, pushing myself further than I thought I could and meeting the challenges and exceeding my expectations. I have never thought of myself as a particularly competitive person. I did not play sports in high school or college. In fact, every sport I have enjoyed has been solitary: riding horses, running, playing tennis (singles, never doubles). Perhaps, it is just finding something that I am passionate about that has ignited a sense of competition and desire to be the best...who knows. I am just happy that I get to experience this level of passion and excitement in what I do. So many people hate their jobs. But I really think life is way to short to hate any part of your life...especially something that you spend 40+ hours/week doing.

Happy Saturday everyone!

would you kindly omit the word "frolicking" from your vocabulary?

In all the companies I have worked for—some international giants and some small ones in their respective industries—about less than 5% of the employees really love what they do.

Good to hear about yer commitment and passion for the game.

This is just another too-tough choice you've asked me to make today.
