4:30 am - The alarm goes off and I'm in no mood to get out of bed.As you can see, it can be a long, hectic day. There isn't much time for anything else. This morning I was talking with my wife on the phone at 8:30 when my son woke up calling, "Dada." When she told him I was at work, he started crying. It broke my heart!
4:45 am - I finally drag myself out of bed to start the day.
5:15 am - I hit the road on my long morning commute. This time of year, it's still quite dark out.
7:00 am - I arrive at work to start the day.
7:00 am to 5:00 pm - I deal with customer issues, employee issues, inventory issues, pricing issues, merchandising issues, theft issues, building issues, and any other issue that comes up throughout the day.
5:00 pm - I do my best to leave work on time.
5:15 pm - I finally make it to my car to start the long commute home.
7:00 pm - Home at last! If I'm lucky, my wife has dinner waiting on me.
7:30 pm - Dinner is over, and it's time to spend some time playing with my son.
8:00 pm - My son's bed time.
8:30 pm - We finally get my son to bed, after he and I both protest for half an hour. I spend the next ninety minutes or so reading email, maintaining my blogs, reading a book, etc.
10:00 pm - Tomorrow's an early day, so I like to get to bed at a reasonable time.
10:30 pm - I finally make it to bed.
I don't know how much longer I can keep making this commute.
