    Thank you Erik and Pat.
    Saying that it is your life and you want to make your schedule(keeping a balance in mind) is wonderful. You will turn down things, but you will also pick up many things by being specific.
    I like the quote you put in the shownotes. It makes me think of when I put down on a job aplication of why I left and when it was for budget reasons, I feel like a failure a bit versus when I chose to leave.

    K, bye
