One Day More!

The Warlock here, with a word or two about Work.  If I can stay awake long enough.

I am sitting in the airport right now, waiting for my flight to leave to Washington.  I have a major deal that is trying to close up this week, so my prospects for sleep over the next few days aren't good - last time I had to travel for a major closing, I slept six hours total over six days.  

This wouldn't be so bad if I hadn't worked the entire weekend, and until the wee hours in the morning on Thursday/Friday/Saturday as well.  I am very tired.

I hate not seeing my kids on a daily basis.  Things are much better since we moved to Houston, but I still have stretches like this.  I am probably even going to have to cancel my planned trip to Dallas this Thursday.

However, I absolutely love the paycheck that comes from my job.  It's not the only reason I continue to do it, but it's a major one.

Kids, please don't hate your dad for being a sell-out.

Hang in there Warlock!

Yuck! We are loving our Texas hours. I suppose it could be worse--most people we know in NYC, especially those in finance, are working around the clock, just hoping to keep their jobs.

I hate this...but it is the same every year. And I like your paycheck, too. ;)
