Do you ever wonder what makes things fun or not fun?

Do you think it has to do with the amount of time you have to put into something? When you have to put too much time into something, no matter what it is, it becomes not fun because you can't take a break and do something else?

Freedom!

It's the reason I work. I need freedom. Freedom of choice, freedom that financial security affords, freedom of time restraints, etc.

When I wake in the morning and can hardly wait to get to it, that is fun to me, working 7 days a week, 12 to 16 hour days and not being able to keep up is very fustrating, I appreciate all the business however managing this many people is driving me around the bend.

I would like to take a day and just work around my own peoperty which is what today was to be but then my lawyer friend called and wanted some excavation done, sounded like a simple afternoon project however on my drive there he expanded the project, now it will be there at least 9 weeks, I will probably back out of some other excavation jobs, with the price of fuel I have to look at the bottom line and we are not adding more equipment.
