It's not that I don't like to  cook, but I figure since I started my computer repair business full time in 2003 (Now at 2,070 customers), because it's out of my house, and my home number is advertised in 2 papers, and a good chunk of people have my cell number, i've pretty much been on call every day for the last 11 years.

 

Sometimes I get calls between the hours of 7pm -10:30pm weekdays  ....Sunday morning calls, Sunday nights at 10:30,  saturday calls. Had one guy after i helped setup his windows 8 machine, called me every Sunday at 7:45am at least 4 weeks in a row for a total of about 14 different calls regarding windows 8. Lets just say he got classic shell.

 

So when I wake up in the morning and if nobody has called yet, I pretty much make a run to my espresso machine to make my morning (what I like to call) a mocha, so I can at least sit down watch some of my favorite TV shows and at a very least drink my mocha in peace.

 

Same goes for lunch, so you can see why I favor food which takes about 3 mins to make 2 sandwiches.

with your busy schedule and stressful work/life its kinda obvious that you should reserve time for yourself. cooking would suit you very well :D its relaxing and selfmade food has way more substance than (US-)bread hehe (and more tea, less coffee) 

 

apart from that congratulations to your successful business :-) !!

Thanks! Currently at Invoice Number 6,531.

 

It is relaxing to cook. If I was a normal human and had actual true days off. I mean there are days when nobody calls, but there are also days when 15 people call.  Just recently I had  9 separate repairs in 1 day

well you are a normal human :-) , the circumstances we live in are self inflicted. its up to everyone to decide how much he wants to push his body/mind for work. if its doing well for you, good thing, but i tend to think in the long term. 10 yrs, 20 yrs, etc. and i chose to live what i find adequate for all the years that are in front of me :-) you can never take back time afterwards and the body is like a bitchy elephant, it just never forgets.

 

yeh i guess you had many customers because of windows 8. what a pain in the ass for ppl who dont know computers well.

I would just like to announce that I created a new word. Before I tell you the word (which i'm sure you can already see in HUGE letters below :laugh:) I'll tell you were it came from. So I also helped my female friend loose 50 - 55lbs. She went from 255 in November 2013 to her current weight 201 as of today. She pretty much started going on a diet the moment she started talking to me. She called me inspiration.

 

Anyway when ever her and I see a heavy set person we use my new word. We say, I think that person needs a ...

 

Carbvention

 

I asked her if I could share with you guys a before and after photo. She said yes, so here you go.

I also helped and guided this one too. She started on her own but then consulted me on food and stuff. So I called her and we talked on the phone about weight loss for about an hour.
