I never thought that work could be so good.  I haven’t had a chance to sit down in peace and quiet and work here at home for four uninterrupted hours for as long as I can remember.  I didn’t do much more than work, but I can’t remember when working was such a pleasant thing to do.  After a late night in the office on Monday, a representational event last Tuesday night, an open house at my son’s school on Wednesday night, an official visit on Thursday night and Friday, and a large goodbye barbeque last night for good friends who will soon leave the country — spending a few hours tonight with peace, quiet, and no interruptions felt like heaven.  Even if I was only working.  Never underestimate those precious moments that pass by so quickly.
