Needed the time to manage my health. Nothing serious, just too much demand on my resources by work just now. I owe it to my boss to back his play. We both are protecting the hind tit we suck on, the corporate sow. Sometimes you make a profit and all is cool. Sometimes you are in a tight spot and need to protect what you have (and hopefully make a profit). This is one of those times.
Life is hard in corporate America. I am too effing old for this shit, but too broke to retire.
