I’m going to risk sounding like a cry baby for the next few minutes so please pardon the interruption.
I’ve been on the road for 10 days now, first Vegas for a week . . . then LA for four days . . . and lastly Portland Oregon for two days. Physically I’m exhausted I feel like my body has plain worn out. It’s been valuable but I can tell you that I will never do such a concentrated bunch of travel again. On top of the schedule, every vendor wanted to the the dinner and drinks things and each day I’ve been trying to go to bed earlier and earlier, often without success, as the wear and tear had built up.
I can’t fathom working on the road like this for a living. Bouncing from City to City trying to keep up the facade of having fun for each new vendor/client you meet. It’s just not worth it. It’s like the month of November has zipped past. IT really hit me when we started hearing Christmas music in LA with 75 degree temperatures. And now Thanksgiving is just two more days away.
So In that spirit let me tell you what I am thankful for:
1. My Family
I have missed them so much in the last ten days; their hugs, kisses, laughter, the trouble they can get into, talking with them, snuggling with them, saying their prayers with them at night and scooping them up when I get home from work. While I’ve seen alot of places on my travels there nothing better than the view “from my front door looking in”.

Everything else is a distant second!
