Someone much wiser than I once said that if you do what you love, the money will follow. Now, I can't really argue with that logic (how can you honestly?) but as someone who sometimes needs to pee on the electric fence, just to prove that it does hurt, it's rather hard to fathom that someone would pay me enormous sums to, say, complete jigsaw or crossword puzzles daily. Far be it for me to argue with the will of the universe though. Things always seem to work themselves out, even if they don't make much sense at the time.
Currently, I'm trying to juggle the whole work/family balance and all I've really managed to do is tip the scales rather unfavourably in the direction of work. Too much commuting time has left me frustrated and stressed out. Needless to say, this isn't exactly contributing to a whole lot of harmony in the house right now.
Couple that with some rather surprising health scares in the past week and what you've got here is a pretty stressed out little puppy. Perhaps if I drank more it would help?
On the other hand, I'm gainfully employed (as is my wonderful significant other) and our little one is mostly healthy (darned colds!). We've got family around and food on the table. Is there anything more to ask for?
Given that the positives are currently outweighing the negatives, it's safe to say that 2008 is starting out fairly well. Now, all I have to do is find those winning lottery numbers before the draw tomorrow night......
