I definitely need to start limiting myself to teaching weekend courses in Central or Eastern time zones. Otherwise, I’m on 5am flights on Monday mornings that don’t get me back to San Antonio until noon, which just doesn’t work when there’s a 10 year-old and 4 year-old who are out of school for the summer waiting in San Antonio. It’s just that the course sites are so beautiful in the Mountain and Pacific time zones.  I’ve been weak and succumbed to a bunch of last minute job offerings.
I know the whole thing is a short-term problem. Ruby and Asa will grow up, and I will miss their need for me to be there when they wake up on Monday mornings.

Regardless, today is going to be a long one with just 4 hours of sleep under my belt.
What’s making me happy:

Running: Big Zero.
