Choices

With long hours and no days off you are constantly forced to make choices in how you spend that 3 t0 4 precious hours each day not spent working. Reading, housework, dog walks, hikes, workouts, phone calls to family, relationship time and hobbies all vie for attention - and then some days you have to just take it easy and relax. I had time to blog last night but instead used that half hour to catch up on the blogs I try to keep up with, those faceless friends that are part of my life on the island.

I'm starting to feel a bit better; I still have a runny nose but I feel about 80%. We filled our empty spot in my office today so I have a bit more help moving forward. Cheers everyone!

I am glad you are feeling better, but please get some rest. It sounds like you are running yourself ragged. Life is no fun if you work all the time. Take it easy.

Well, life can be pretty good when you're working hard - and the vacations are fabulous! Seriously, the fishing industry isn't for everyone, whether you're on shore or on a boat, but I can't complain about the quality of life - I just try to do too much.
