I’ve just spent the last two hours on a response for an RFP for work, and I gotta say, it SUCKS. I hate doing RFP responses at the best of times, but add the fact that we are three days away from moving and it sucks even more. Also, I did it on my own time in the evening, which is a time I usually look forward to because my kids are sound asleep and I can relax for a bit.

Now my back is aching from sitting at the computer all tensed up, trying to figure out what the hell they are asking for, trying to figure out how to get a seven page resume down to two pages, and trying to figure out how to creatively say “I write damn good requirements” 37 different ways.

This is a good reminder of why I’m not a self-employed contractor. I admire those of you who are!
