My customers are in education support so I had almost 2.5 weeks to take advantage of the downtime and tackle a few major projects that need a few days each of intense concentration. Of that 2.5 weeks so far, I've spent 6 days away from home visiting kids/grandkids, 1 day assembling a new desk and bookcase I bought the wife...when she picked it out, she assumed it came assembled, and only 5 days of working on my priority stuff. The other days, including most of today, have been spent trying to appease a senior partner with her pet project...I call it the gift that keeps on giving. Laugh | :laugh:

The missus has scheduled us for New Year's Eve dinner/drinks at a friend's house. The friend's boyfriend is a chess freak and seems to get a sick satisfaction from repeatedly beating people who just don't take it that seriously. Laugh | :laugh: The next afternoon, my younger brother will be making a pitstop on his way to a 5 week baseball umpire school to pursue his second dream career. (That's what happens when you retire too early from the first career without good planning) This means that I only have a few days left of peace and quiet to finish up the holiday todo list.

On the plus side, my son-in-law in Florida gave me a really nice Christmas present that is helping to lift my spirits and increase my concentration...getting a lot done! Laugh | :laugh:
