I almost had you didn't I, Mike?
Sometimes it feels like I do all of those things.... simultaniously. Someday you'll see what I mean. Wait. Rewind. At least your wife will know what I mean.
It is the most personally satisfying "job" I ever had. My daughter left for college Monday and knowing that she has a good head on her shoulders and she makes smart choices, lets me know that I've done my job well. Can't ask for more than that.
As for your job, it's admirable that you work hard for your vacations and for the finer things in life. Many of the younger generations don't anymore and that's a great quality you have.
