You know what they say. In times like these, the most important thing you can do for yourself is hold onto the job you already have. Thatís what I worked on today. I donít think I let my frustration show when the Boss asked for a cost report that would take me away from the Big Project. Iíd planned to spend this day getting as much done on that as I could, but I cheerfully changed course. What the Boss wants, he gets. Itís a matter of survival.

In the end, I satisfied myself by getting both done. I gave the Boss his cost report, and I got through another one of those complicated, convoluted spreadsheets that make up the backup information for the Big Project. Iím about three uninterrupted days away from being finished with the project. Which means that Iíll be done in about two weeks, as there is no such thing as an uninterrupted day. Not in this world.

Two of the oaks in my yard.

With a series of storms coming in and snow falling in the mountains, the Boss told me this afternoon that he was headed up there for the weekend. I didnít have to ask if it was business or pleasure, because the only pleasure he gets is working. I just begged him to drive safely and make it back in one piece. All this saving of my job wonít amount to much if something happens to him, because he is the job.
