I haven't had much to say here lately. Why? Well, I've been busy with work, I don't like repeating myself, and I've been feeling a little "dry" and uncreative. Natural ebb and flow; I'll get more active again soon.

Work has been going well. I've been very busy with a number of projects, but progress is being made and the group of people involved are starting to function as a team. I've been slowly trying to implement some ideas from the books I've been reading (7 Habits and Getting Things Done). One of the better ideas I got was from iamom, who suggested copying the contents of my overflowing inbox and sent items folders to backup folders. Since doing that, I've been able to keep a handle on my incoming/outgoing email.

Spring is slowly arriving. Today I walked home from work for the first time this year. When it is cold, I take the train, but I prefer to walk. It's good exercise, and I don't have to wait around on the train platform and then crowd in with all the other people going home at rush hour. I hope this weather holds over the weekend.

I have to do some serious thinking and make some decisions about my future. Should I continue to work at my current job? Get another job in the same field? Move? Change careers? Retire? I feel I'm in a bit of a rut, but it is a fairly comfortable rut. I've had those questions at the back of my mind for a long time.
