America's First Lady.....(英翻中)
For such a wealthy couple, Pam Lopker and husband Karl live in modest style.
They have a house overlooking the ocean in California, a nanny and a cleaning lady who comes in once a week. “We live a long way below our means,” says Lopker.
An obsessive timekeeper, Lopker rises at 5.15 a.m. every day and either goes for a long run or to the gym. She returns home at 7.10 a.m. precisely to wake her two children-a boy of 10 and a girl of 8-and prepare their breakfast. She then drops them off at school on her way to work.
By the time she arrives at the headquarters of QAD it is already 8.30. Her day is usually full with meetings, either to do with marketing, strategy of sales.
Customers or potential customers come to her office at least three times a week, where she tries to sell them QAD’s products. She gave up designing programs in 1990, but she still takes an interest in technical work done by her research staff.
Lopker leaves the office at 6.30 p.m. every day in time to be hoe to see her children at 7 p.m. Her husband leaves the office at 6 p.m. since he makes supper for the family most evenings. It is important that the family eats together, says Lopker.
In the evening she spends time with the children, playing games or reading. Television was banned for the children last year-her son, she says, was spending too much time watching it and not enough doing his homework. still allowed to play on the computer and on his Nintendomachine.
