Why I’m Here

I was looking at my blog the other day and felt bad for not updating it lately.  It’s been a trying month in terms of time management, and unfortunately www.ChristopherRoss.net was on a low rung.  That will change, because I need to express myself through more than the random thoughts that twitter provides.

So, in no particular order, here’s what’s going on:

  • We’re thisclose to finalizing our fiscal year targets/strategy/teams/budgets/myr excuses/etc.  This process alone proves that we’re a true-blue CORPORATE now.  Because it’s become a cottage industry of duplicate efforts, multiple cooks and process upon endless process.
  • The trip to Disney World went splendid.  I relaxed (relatively) and enjoyed the time with the family, so much that we’re already planning to go back in 6 months.  I highly recommend staying at Sheraton Safari if you are interested in being off-property.
  • Got Best Buy to replace my Samsung 50” HDTV with a 56” HDTV.  It’s wicked cool.  Too bad I’m never home to watch it.
  • Ruined a budding friendship.  It happens.
  • Lost 5lbs.  Every little bit helps.
  • Had my orthodontist hook me up with Invisaligns.
  • Began developing a (hopefully) long-lasting friendship with some of our neighbors.  If your names are Beth & Scott, you’re in!
  • Saw “The Dark Knight”.  By the time I went, the hype ruined the experience for me.  It was, ok.

You get the point – lots of little things and a few big ones.  But I’m just walking around exhausted now.  Especially today, having been up since 2:30a Central Time and now I’m staring at 1-2hrs of email and follow-up activities.

The good news is that I still love my job, my family is doing well, my wife seems less likely to kick me to the curb, and the dog has taken a liking to me.  So for today, I’m good.  Life, is good.
