LOOK FOR THE SILVER LINING

It's been one of those weeks and it is only Thursday.

40 hours of work in 3 days. 40. And it's only Thursday!

Three student suspensions.

1 for Smoking pot.

1 for A lighter and an aerosol can of deodorant in the boys locker room = one hell of a torch.

1 for Out of control, shouting profanities.

Then there's the three night obligations this week that add to an already long day. But I love what I do. It's my passion. My life. What defines Bob.

TGIF never meant so much. I need the weekend to charge the old batteries.

Mom used to sing the song when she was a bit blue, Look for the Silver Lining. Many posts ago I posted the lyrics to the song. I'll do that again. I need that silver lining to get through another day.

My office staff presented me with a T-shirt yesterday. The front of the shirt reads:

BOB

THE MAN

THE MYTH

THE LEGEND

I've only been working with them for 2 and a half months and they think they have Bob pegged. Is this me? Only I know that Bob is mostly a figment of his own imagination and a legend in his own mind.

Whoever I am or whoever/whatever I've turned out to be, I gotta be me. What you see is what you 're gonna get.

Just remember that where ever you go...there you are! Good Post today Bob. Would it help you to know that I feel the way you do now usually on Mondays at around 9:05am?
