And didn't get to attend. Had to fly to Chicago. Lame ass poo. Now I'm in Chicgo wearing a Panthers hoodie at a bar. Getting no love what so ever from Bears fans while my 3 and 7 year old are home trick-or-treating. Fug my life.

Wife keeps sending picks of the boys getting candy. Traveling for work is an over rated lonely fugging life.

Yea it was different when I wasn't married with kids. I've been traveling since I graduated college back in '97. Even met my wife in an airport layover during 9/11. My boys are pretty much used to me being gone which sucks.

Fug no dude. I'm pretty much a retard that can sell. Selling requires traveling. Money is good but quality of life blows.

yeah, you feel like you are missing a lot while you are gone and then feel like a stranger when you finally land and get back in the house. Then it takes a while to adjust and feel normal in the household routine but before you can get completely immersed, you are right back on a plane again. Sleeping in a bed that isn't yours.

Hell sometimes when I wake up, I really do wonder where the hell I am. Not fun, and anyone who thinks it is either hasn't done it or is an idiot. The point I realized I traveled alot was when a flight crew started recognizing me and I them.
