Quotes of the Day for 24 August 2002 – Finishing
I finished a big project the other day. Actually, it was really Phase I of a big project, but it was the end of a big push. (It was also the reason there were no quotes on Thursday.) I wanted to just unplug the phones and lay in the sun for a while, which didn't improve my attitude toward all the other work I had waiting to be done! I'll get those things finished soon as well, and I may even get a few days off some day, but it did give me today's theme.
