    Wow! What a wonderful pleasure to back posting on the boards. First I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere apology to the staff of DFW FF. I know I literally disappeared on you all, but I'm sure as most of staff already knows I've been working between 60 and 80 hours per week. It's a very good reason, but poor excuse. Anyway I'm sorry about that. I guess you could say it was a bit of a strain working so many hours. Not only healthwise but in my personal life. I considered it a good week if I could take my wife out to eat ONCE during the week, there weren't many of those. Those who may remember us before the Dark Times know we ate out 4 or 5 times a week. Up until X-Men 2 we had not set foot in a theater in MONTHS! Since Celebration 2/The Ep2 Line Up, I've not had any down time. No sick days, no Labor day, Thanksgiving, Xmas, New Years no nothing. Don't get me wrong I'm extremely grateful to have my job, but sheesh.
    Finally a couple of weeks ago Karin and I were able to take a week off and drive to Virginia. I was able to decompress, and relax a bit. I've come to the conclusion that time spent with famly and friends is infinitely more enjoyable than A/P, billing, spreadsheets, PowerPoint Presentations, staff meetings, hiring and firing folks. So I will be making more of an effort to doing the things I enjoyed and I hope that includes stuff with this group (except for Branson). By the way I'm at work as I write this, but I'm not really working ;) . I hope to see you all soon.

    I haven't met you before but I'm sure that all of us here in the Dallas SW forum, we are glad to have you back. It seems like you are a very busy man since it seems like you don't do much around the house but just be at work [face_shocked]

    Try to get a day off ;)

    Good to have you back Timinator !!

    I can relate to the Godawful hours myself.
    Termite season is finally slowing down and I'm actually starting to recognize my family again.
