She Works Hard For the Money

Poor Randy. I think he’s working more hours than he did with the old job. Time-wise I think he may have spent more work-related hours at his previous job (as a result of all of the flying and waiting in airports). But I think that he is actually spending more time doing actual work at his current job.

Take the past few days for example. He had to be into work by 8AM yesterday for a meeting and didn’t get home until 9:30PM. This morning he had a 7AM conference call and has a pseudo-business dinner this evening. He has another 7AM call tomorrow morning.

And this has been pretty typical since taking the new job.

Last weekend we had plans to visit my friend, Pete, in Salem. After we’d made the plans, Randy said he’d rather stay home and read the paper/catch up on TV. I persuaded him into going…and I think he had some fun…but I can definitely tell he needs some downtime. Our trip to Las Vegas (Sunday!) is already chock-full of activities so I suspect his vacation won’t even be very restful. But since we don’t leave until Sunday, I may disappear on Saturday and give him some work-free, Karl-free, obligation-free, friend-free space.
