I like this business a LOT.
It's far less stressful than being a computer programmer (good for
BGs)--then again, I make my husband deal with the customers and
employees and I can say NO and he can't FIRE ME! :-D
It's far more physically active (good for BGs). And you know when
you're really really *done*.
When I was a programmer, I had a very hard time making sure I got
regular exercise. In this business, I have no choice... someone
always calls in sick, or it's time for a quarterly high-detail, or we get
a new customer and start-up will be a bear.
I'm glad I'd been planning on quitting my old job and joining hubby
before the diagnosis. It was perfect timing to increase my physical
activity--which I very desperately *needed* after all the muscle-
wasting I had pre-diagnosis.
Go Janitors! (But take the candies off your desk please!!! Don't
tempt me like that all the time!!!!)
