That out of the way, I had a great Christmas with the family. I finally did go Christmas shopping on Saturday. And I think I've caught up on sleep.

Well, Christmas shopping just isn't going to happen this year. I don't have the time or the money available. It's finals week at school, plus I'll be working two full-time jobs on Monday and Tuesday. In addition, I'm resolved to study after/during work at least eight hours total for my final exam, which is scheduled for Wednesday evening. Then, I'm getting ready to host the family for Christmas. They arrive Friday. That precludes any weight lifting and hockey this week, I suppose. I hope to still get at least four hours of sleep each day, by any means necessary. After Tuesday, I will be back to a normal daytime work schedule and have the evenings free again. Once I finish my final exam on Wednesday night, I'll get a full night of rest for once. I think it might feel like a vacation.
Lutzie sent me a link to a great hockey video. This guy is amazing in the stickhandling preview video.

I quit my job at Sprint and accepted a contract to work in Dallas for the next few months. The milder weather there will be welcome, as will the additional cash I'll be making. This is the job I was looking for in July or so. <sigh> I'm glad it finally came along! I'll be a technical lead for a network project at sites in Dallas, Kansas City, and Chicago. This is right up my alley. Because of the travel involved, I'll have to take my classes online for the next couple of terms. I'm excited to be using my core competencies once again.
It was a little bit difficult to quit my job at Sprint. If I didn't like the people I was working with so much, it would be significantly easier. I consider a few of them friends, though. I'll certainly be staying in touch.
