Back onthe trail and it feels good........

It must be 2 or 3 weeks since I was last on the cattledrive.

Every day there would be this nagging guilty feeling saying

"Rory, you have not submitted your next go at your CattleDrive assignment, are you ever going to get back in the saddle, or are you CHICKEN"

I justify it by saying ther's a baby on the way, jobs need doin', I'm busy at work, I'm studying for the SCJP exam etc.

Every day I put it off 'til tomorrow

But today I just thought "submit the darn assignment" so I did and it feels good, now to keep the momentum.........YEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAA!!!


I wish that for just one time, you could stand inside my shoes.<br />You'd know what a drag it is to see you.

Good on ya, Rory!

Sounds like even half of the external distractions should be excuses enough, though...
