work work work

Last weekend I had to fly to MA to integrate a company that we had purchased.  First I have to say that it was FREEZING!!!  Holy crap I couldn't believe how frozen I felt on a short walk to the car.  I do not know how in the world people deal with that kind of cold.  The integration had some issues that were unrelated to my group.  It was a bunch of 16 hour days of busting tail to get it all done but we got all the systems integrated into our systems.  Sadly, we had to cancel our planned day of snowmobiling due to the other group causing everything to fall behind. Thanks guys! It was nice to get back home last night and sleep in my own bed.  I was able to get good sleep but it didn't feel like nearly enough this morning when I had to wake up. I was happy to get a workout in after work.  It really beat me down but it was much needed and felt great.  Now off to bed.

School is killing me!

I have gone back to college to finally finish my degree.  I did very well with the first three sets of classes making A's in all of them.  This last set of classes have really been a royal pain in my backside!  It doesn't help that my work schedule has been insane over the last month.  I have been working on several projects which have had me working long hours.  This is not conducive to coming home and working on the school work that I had at home stacking up.  Not to mention that the classes were not classes that I liked at all.  That really didn't help me out at all.  I just turned in my last papers for both of these classes and at this point I am hoping to come out with Cs and do better with the next set of classes.  Can you guess when those classes start?  A couple of week you say? Oh no, that would be all to wise.  The two new classes start tomorrow.  I kick myself everyday for not finishing my degree many many years ago when life was simple and work was minimal.  I am having a hard time wrapping my mind around the fact that I have to do this non-stop for the next couple of years.  I am praying that I pass the two classes that I just finished.  I need get better organized for these next classes.  I need to do well in my classes and increase my workouts so that I am ready for my big cycling events in July and the triathlons that I want to do this year.  If I could just win the lottery it would make life a whole lot easier.
