Catching Up

I haven't posted a new entry in a while, I'm going to try and catch up on what I've been doing this week.

I have to ask for people to keep in mind that in my business, the end of the month is the busiest for me. I have to close the month for my clients in order to get paid, so the last 3 days and the first 3 days of each month are very hectic as I want to get paid ASAP, so I have to do my work ASAP. You would think this would leave less time for poker, and normally that is true, but not so this month. I seem to be pretty caught up, the one contractor I have now is working out very well, and she will be taking over a lot more responsibility over the next month. I have also hired one more contractor who will take over some more responsibilities of mine, so the goal (and how it's written on paper) is that by May, I should only have to work about 5-10 hours a WEEK instead of the 50-60 hours I have been doing. Sure, sounds too good to be true, so I'll just have to wait and see how it works out and hopefully, I'll be sitting golden. If not by May, then in a few months as the training gets finished and as I learn to relinquish control of my babies (my clients). I'll keep you all updated at the end of each month as to where I am at and how much I am working. I just know that I have to be smart about my hours working each week, and there's just no way I can work 60 hours a week AND have a newborn. I don't THINK so.

I finally cashed on PokerStars on Wednesday (I think it was Wed...) I cashed the day after I opened the account, and it was only 2nd place in a $10 SNG..but HEY, $$ is $$. It's Saturday night right now and I plan on playing the night away as I just woke up refreshed from a mid afternoon nap, and I'm raring to go! I will post another update before I go to bed tonight giving details on how I did. I'm currently waiting to play a MTT on PS ($10, + 1 RB and 1 AO). I will also play some SNG qualifiers for the $350K guaranteed for tomorrow.


Last night (Friday) I got to go play LIVE in Laughlin!! I had to go to Golden Valley to p/u a check from one of my clients, and then went into Mohave Valley to see another client of mine, a chiropractor, for an adjustment. I've never been adjusted before, but lately (pregnancy?? who knows??) I've been having an urge to start getting adjusted and hopefully the tightness in my back and neck will go away. Plus, as I've been walking, I notice a pain in my hip joint area, and I really think some chiropractic care can help relive that. Unfortunantly, the traffic was horrendous, the freeway offramp (the only one) was closed down due to road work, so I didn't get to Mohave Valley until about 4 pm and that was too late for my client, so we rescheduled for next week and I drove over the bridge into Laughlin.

I played the tourney at RiverPalms, nothing much to report, tourney started with 37 players, I got knocked out in 15th place when I got a little too aggressive with my pocket 3's, and ran into pocket Q's from the SB. That was just bad timing, as these guys were mostly regulars by this point and they play pretty tight. I feel that when I play agressive against them, they will only stand up and defend if they have a true monster hand. Top 6 hands kind of thing. Oh well, I played slots for a little bit and then headed home. No winnings to take with me, but I had a great time just getting out of the house and socializing with my "casino" friends, you know, the people that you ONLY see at the casino whether they're players or employees. I get along well with almost everyone I meet, and so I enjoy seeing and talking again with these people.

So that's it for now, I'm off to play...wish me luck and I'll post again later!
