    I'm leaving work early so I can go work legs

    Sweeeet.

    Actually, there is a major snowstorm coming our way and I have a 40 mile commute, so my boss told me I could leave early. 3:00 PM at the gym will be DEAD.

    My company keeps us here as long has humanly possible. They usually wait until the commute is deadly before cutting us loose.

    Chuck Norris once lost his keys and couldn't remember where he put them. So he tortured himself for half an hour until he gave up their location.

    Bummer. My commute takes about 40 minutes, but can take two hours in a heavy storm. Fortunately, my boss really does not care when I come and go, as long as the work gets done.

    Rigid bosses piss me off. My boss even lets me leave work a couple hours early 2/3 times a week during the summer so I can go mountain biking after work.

    We have a whole "work/life" department at our company that promotes employees to have interests outside the office. They are sensitive to my workouts and active lifestyle and I appreciate that.

    I envy you. And I miss my old boss. Many say he was extremely nice because he like me.......I didn't see that in him...... He was good to me...................his point of view was: If I'm getting my work done and receiving no complaints, why stick around..........

    I'll hopefully be moving out to AZ or NM with my girlfriend in December. How are the people out there, Jodi? Are the summers miserable or is the "dry heat" thing true?

    I haven't spent my first full summer here yet but I often visited in mid July. 117 degrees and I would barely sweat. Yes the dry heat thing is very true

    People are great out here. You have your assholes anywhere you go but for the most part, everyone has been really nice. Especially our neighbors.

    Snow? What's that? I heard we get it in the mountains sometimes. The only time I've seen white stuff fall from the sky was when half the county was on fire!

    I am envious. You could mountain bike year round, and I hear the riding out there is fantastic. It's an 8 month sport in New England, if I'm lucky.

    A buddy of mine lived in Sedona for 5-6 months and did nothing but MTB. He said the terrain and scenery is the best he's ever seen. Some pretty sick single track from what he says. I should have gone with him!!!

    I just found out what makes for a really good cardio workout.

    Shovelling snow!

    Just spent 45 minutes clearing my driveway and sidewalk.
    Today I can do what others will not so that tomorrow I will do what others cannot.

    The difference between winners and losers is that winners do things that losers don't want to do.

    Success leaves clues. People who produce outstanding results do specific things to create those results

    Nobody cares what you did yesterday or what you are going to do tomorrow. What is important is what you are doing NOW to solve our problem

    THERE IS NO TOMORROW!
