Am I still here?

What is it that W.C. Fields said? "All in all, I'd rather be in Philadelphia."

My Star Island vacation was the highlight of my summer. Work has been a bear. My personal life has been extremely challenging. The reason I haven't been posting is because both venues have been the focus of my attention and I can't easily discuss either here. My health still sucks, but who wants to hear about that?

Would I really rather be in Philadelphia? No. I lived there while I was in grad school. I have no desire to live there again.

I still have no idea how I did on the CISSP. However, I have been able to recover a small portion of my sanity since I am no longer studying for the test. I've enjoyed mindless reading and a little television/movie viewing. I'm slowly assessing some household projects and formulating priorities for a plan of attack.

I don't have many face-to-face friends these days. Too busy, I guess. I appreciate the warm and supportive wishes of my e-friends during this challenging summer. Thanks, folks!

I don't quite feel like myself right now, but I'm trying to rise above it all. Hope springs eternal. At least it must, since I continue to buy a few lottery tickets every week. While money is not the solution to all problems, a nice pile of cash can be a balm to many an injury. (grin)

I hope everyone has a great day!

gee, I hope to win the lottery, too. But it's harder for me, since I don't buy tickets!! Things will get better.
