Yes, lots of work and not much play time the last couple of weeks. I have been working average of 10 to 12 hours per day. A lot going on, so I have to stay longer hours. It is a sign of spring and the upcoming summer months. I remember last year our heavy business began in March and did not let up 'till late in the fall. Of course there has been a lot going on the last few weeks.
The White house can't get a break, but I guess when you are full of secrecy and in shit up to your knees, it is hard to extricate yourself once you're in it. Next Victim-U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez.
Speaking of somewhat nicer wildlife, we have an iguana pet that has a nasty personality, even though now it enjoys an outdoor cage complete with a built in pool (Plastic container) and plenty of room to climb around, it still refuses to be friendly. Might just have to fatten it and have it for a barbecue next year.
Olivia is getting ready for her performance as "Annie" at our church. Last year she played one of the daughters in Fiddler on the Roof, so this year she auditioned and got the Annie part.
I am in the process of waiting for a "promotion"- One that I am not sure what it entails yet but beginning this week or next, I get to train my replacement.
Aside form that, just busy and busy as I am sure most everyone in Bloggworld is.

Scooter Libby gets found guilty of "obstruction of justice" so the White House can breathe easier for a little while now. The "Buck" stopped with Libby and it did not go higher. What a difference of Character between the current administration and another one years back that was caught with their hands in the cookie jar(Iran-Contra). At least Reagan looked into the camera and said, "The buck stops with me." End of story. Oliver North and John Poindexter were the scapegoats back then nonetheless, they found very lucrative jobs after giving their testimony to Congress. While we all just went "wow"
Once again we say "wow"
No one in this administration takes responsibility for anything. They would much rather throw the expendable "career politicians" into the fire. People like Libby or Army Maj. Gen. George W. Weightman who know when to throw in the towel and be rewarded afterwards with a great job with Haliburton or other company friendly with Bush and Co.
So, Cheney and Bush can relax for now since they will more than likely pardon Libby. His conviction may also be thrown out in appeal as it happened with Poindexter and Oliver North years ago and we are left saying, "wow"

Yes, I need a new vacation and it is only the beginning of the year. I know I just went to L.A. a couple of weeks ago, so that should count as a vacation. I think I need more than just 4 days though. I need something like 2 weeks or so. Now, Melissa and I are thinking along the same lines because while she is planning a "Valentine's vacation" for next year, I was thinking that it would be great to go to Europe next year with the kids. They are at an age that they can appreciate a trip like that. Melissa though just wants it to be the two of us while I want it to be all 4. We'll see what that turns out to be.
Her trip involves some mystery. She does not want to tell me where she is planning on going, but rather is leaving me clues in her blog.

I like mysteries......

I like vacations better.
