2. July, 2003 - I need a holiday

I know this probably won’t get much sympathy from folks, but I’m still trying to get back on track after being out of town. I’m still waking up on PDT, rather than CDT like I ought (normally that wouldn’t be a problem, but it makes for short working days when I head off to a Saints game at 5pm), and the backlog of things to do around the house feels oppressive enough that I don’t seem to be making any headway. There’s work piling up for existing clients and new clients to be landed.

To top it off, yesterday when I got my mail, there was a postcard from San Francisco, I think from the desk-clerk at the Powell Hotel. It said simply:

David -
Come back soon.
San Francisco is
less without you!

followed by an unreadable signature. This probably isn’t the manly thing to admit, but when I read that yesterday, I first nearly teared-up, and then spent the rest of the afternoon moping that I hadn’t had enough time for fun on the trip, even though by the end of it, I just wanted to be home.

Well, enough of that. It’s time to start making some money to pay the bills and to also get the laundry and dishes dealt with so maybe I can get back to what passes for normal life around here by next week. Wish me luck.
