It's 8:30 at night and I'm back at work, trying to get caught up. Next week was going to be a vacation for me, but that's been called off due to my un-conquered pile of tasks which I thought I'd have completed by this Friday. This week marks a full year since my last vacation- I can hardly believe I am still on my feet, that my ass isn't dragging behind me. On the bright side, my company is giving me some sales and estimating to do and today I discovered that a $1.2 million project proposal which I estimated is going to have a favorable outcome. We'll get the contract and the project manager will be yours truly, which is ideal because I have already studied the project from every angle and put the learning curve behind me.
On the sporting side of my life, I'm happy to report that I've ridden my bike to and from work for the past two days, with a total of about 90 miles covered in the past three days. The mornings are freezing cold outside and the hardest part is talking myself into wanting to ride. It's always the correct choice to do so because I am able to skip the morning coffee and I'm naturally awake and alert when I get here. The ride home is always sweet- it's usually much warmer outside by that time. And her- gasoline costs $3.00 a gallon!! That's another good reason!
