I wasn't halfway through my first cup of coffee this morning when my boss walked in and said "do you want to go to Crete for a week?" Duh!!! like i would turn down a trip to greece...the only bummer is that I'll miss spending my birthday with my wife which compounds the fact that I missed spending her birthday with her as well, I also missed my bother's aniversary and my grandmothers Birthday but we had planned to celebrate them all at the end of the month anyway...so it's not as big a deal still a bummer though...humm greece after the tourist season should be very nice...and for Amy...yes I know I have a great job sometimes

Change 3

a 07:30 phone call saying ooppsss uimmmm well it turns out that you are gonna have to go after all and we are gonna have to send 2 teams is not that way I wanted to start the day. Neither is sweet talking the travel clerk who's day we ruined yesterday to redo all the work she did yesterday....however other than cancelling my New Years plans, a ride with my dad and a climb with my brother, this on again off again travel thing isn't too much of a burden.

I guess healing requires sleep

I am exhausted...10 hours of sleep each night broken only twice for meds and yet I feel the need to sleep all day....I can barely stay awake for 2-3 hours before I fall asleep in my chair. Go »
