A New Day Dawns…

It’s somewhat amazing how a new day can bring a little bit of peace and calmness to the soul. I think a good night’s sleep can also help. I am in a much better mood and mind-frame today than I was yesterday and it’s showing in my work, my demeanor, even in the way I feel physically. Maybe it is getting a good lead on a different approach to a design issue I’ve had at work, or maybe it was just getting good sleep. Who knows. And, frankly, I don’t care – as long as I’m feeling better.

I’m sure the stress is caused by a multitude of things, including Christmas being on the horizon. It always seems to be an area of the year that I get stressed out at. But, we’re heading up to MA, so it should be fun. It’s always nice to be able to spend time with my family – as crazy as they are – since I don’t get to see them much anymore.

I’m also pumped about going snowboarding! I am going to get up at least one, if not two days this weekend to Mountain Creek – assuming they open as planned. Then I’ve got three days in January that I’ll be spending with twenty-five friends (some close, some friends of friends). This trip is what I’m most looking forward to over the next few weeks! I can’t wait.

OK, back to work for now.

Another Slow Day..

Arrgghh, layoffs and work and stupid projects – oh my! Work has been less than stellar, to say the least. The only think that is making is bearable is that I should be able to go snowboarding this weekend. I can’t wait.
