    Actually, guys, I'm going from two full-time jobs to only one. I'm giving up the law business with all its "perks" - rat-race rush-hour traffic, errands on my lunch hour, cranky and unrealistic clients, and all the rest of the stuff, and I'm going to stay home and run our laser/woodworking business. If the past three weeks hold true to form, I'll be busy four days a week---but now I'll have a day or so off per week, unlike now. This past week, the only day I had off was Thanksgiving Day--even then I was in the shop "organizing" (again!) and making lists of the things I needed to do on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (after working until 10:00 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday!!). I'm soooo tired of the two jobs--just gonna stay home and turn wood on the lathe, burn wood on the lasers, and go to work in my jammies if I want to!!!

    Am I ready? Bet your sweet bippy I am!!

    I just turned in my 36 page security clearance update paperwork this morning, something that we have to do every 5 years. This form is akin to bamboo under the fingernails. If I stick to my plan I will only have to fill out one more.

    You have no idea how jealous I am!
