….why not do both? What I sincerely love about my lifestyle living here in Mammoth Lakes is the ability to make almost each and every day a work day, as well as a play day. I’m blessed that I have found a career and environment that allows me to juggle both worth and play so freely.
Most nights I can be found in front of my computer late into the early hours of the morning. Often time’s people ask me why I am up at such an hour and what on earth am I doing. Well the answer is quite simple really…I’m getting caught up! Let’s take today for example:
Last night I sat in front of my computer until almost 2am getting busy work done, so I could comfortably excuse myself from the office for about 4 hours today to do some backcountry split boarding with a friend and my two dogs. So after getting up at 7am (5hrs of sleep will have to do!) and tackled all my urgent work from 8-9am, and then headed out the door. With technology these days, I was able to make and receive phone calls, text messages, and email all while ascending approximately 2000 vertical feet in one of our local mountains. After a great ski decent down and a simple slog back to the car, I was back at work shortly after getting a late lunch in me. I spent the rest of the afternoon showing property and responding to emails until it was time to go teach my Gracie Jiu-Jitsu class. I got home around 9:30pm, made a quick dinner, and got back on the computer a little after 10.
So here it is a few minutes after midnight, and sure I’m working late and quite exhausted, but it was all worth for me. I was able to have a successful and efficient work day and get some great outdoor exercise in as well. What more could someone ask for.
