Four calls — that’s not too many.

Life is getting back to normal after the year-end break.  The Daily Show is out of reruns; traffic has picked up; gas prices are going up; and I had four conference calls today.

What wasn’t normal was having all but one call end early; usually, all of my calls run over (and start late because the previous call has run over), but today, that wasn’t a problem.  Even the call that ran late didn’t cause me any problems.

And having big blocks of unscheduled time is letting me make progress on cleaning up “stuff” at work, as well as planning what I need to do this year. 

I know it won’t last, but I’m enjoying it so far.
