A quick post in the morning

Good morning...

I'm going to try to get into the habit of writing a quick post in the morning... or maybe at night, though my nights seem a lot shorter now that I'm working and have a baby. Get home at ~7 p.m. and by the time I'm settled (maybe a quick trip to the store or something is needed before it closes at 8, for example) it's probably 8:30. Then there's an hour or two of interacting with the family and my computer at home (reading emails that I can't really read at work because of the firewall). Then at 10:30, it's bath time for Alex and it seems that time disappears and it's 12:30 and time for bed.

I need to start going to bed on time... I'm getting more and more tired during the day as my reserves of sleep go away. Last night I went to bed at 2 a.m. and woke up this morning at 7. Obviously I can't keep that up. (The night before I went to bed at 3 a.m...).

The other thought, however, about writing this in the morning is that I'm working more in Spanish now (my laptop that I got from the consulting company is even in Spanish! Yowza...). Maybe revving up my English first thing in the morning is the last thing I need to do.

Escribiria mas en espanol, pero casi no puedo hablar, y escribir es una pesadilla... Y tambien, no se donde estan los accentos y no hay "spellcheck" en Blogger para espanol. Entonces, probablamente para ahora, voy a continuar escribiendo en ingles.

What that said, for those monoglots reading this is that I would write in Spanish, but my written Spanish sucks, so I won't.

Okay, to work. I'm a lot more comfortable here at my current job than I was at Terra. I think the problem was that when I was working for Terra, I was just another drone or at least everyone talked like I was. That drove me nuts. Here I'm a consultant. I'm not just another number, I can leave at any time. I'm here for a reason, I don't have to worry about politics and basically, after 8+ years of working as a consultant, I'm just more comfortable in this role. Being a full time employee just bugs me at a level that would need years of psychotherapy to weed out, so I won't fight it.

Wasn't there a moment when I was bitching about being a conslutant? I wanted to join a company, settle down with some decent bene's and stock options? Ahhh... maybe next time.
