I feel on top of the world. I’m at the top of my personal and professional game. I’m happy. I’ve been happy for some time now.

This weekend, I witnessed a lady in a hot pink, short skirt wearing 4.5″ heels walking out of Home Depot. I can only assume she was shopping for some pipe.

The last hot water to come out of the water heater will be used to clean the mess left behind by the water heater.

Home Depot trip 1 – water heater, plumbing tape, hammer arrestors, frost free outdoor faucet, ball valve (for the hell of it).

Tuesdays and Thursdays are little bridges that connect “oh shit” to “almost there” to “thank God!”

Give us this day our daily Xanax and calm these palpitations, as our body shakes and trembles. Lead us not into the ER, but deliver us from anxiety. Amen.

But one goal today March 5, 2017 10:19 am

Truth be told, I have many goals today. Two major professional goals and many personal goals.

But for the moment, I have but one goal. Nothing else matters. The house can burn down around me and I won’t stop. A client has reported a problem that I simply cannot reproduce. So my immediate goal, no matter how long it takes, is to reproduce that issue. That is all.

Sometimes it is helpful to remind yourself the goal is to win.

Now you too can exercise just like you are traveling on the interstate after too much coffee when the next rest stop is 37 miles away.
