Poem by me
I have been pretty quiet lately but doing a lot of thinking and searching. I was wondering what my next move will be and how to achieve goals that have been set.
Knowing what I want to do is a non-issue. I’m currently having a supply and material issue. It isn’t very big but annoying nonetheless….so in the meantime I do what I can albeit with frustration settling at the threshold….just hanging there, going nowhere fast.
Today is my first day of doing anything concrete and in the process I came across this post by way of StumbleUpon. For me, it couldn’t have come at better time.
After reading lesson #1, I was hooked. I continued reading the following lessons and came away not with new ideas but focused….realizing what my next move should be. In a way I already feel as if I was centered in a lot of what was written in the post or heading in the right direction.
It helped me to also see that I have resources at hand that I had forgotten about or just plain neglected. Supplies are not the real sticking point as much as materials and that may not be as large as my mind has painted the picture to be.
I’m not ashamed to admit waning determination has been rolling around inside of my head and dragging behind like a comet’s tail was giving up. So when stuff happens, I guess the next time I’ll throw up my hands and say…
One of the advantages of working from home is that I don’t have to get up at the crack of dawn, but at the same time I don’t sleep in either. It was around 7:30 when TheWife wakes me. I get myself ready and we’re out the door just after eight.
I forgot to mention in my last post about the nails that I found in the two rear tires after I moved them to the front. They probably went undetected due to the lack of weight put on the tires because the van is empty at the moment. After I put them on the front I then noticed right away how deflated they were, now due to the weight of the engine. Since that time I have had to spend money to inflate the tires and I was about to make sure this morning was my last time doing that.
I drop TheWife off at work about nine and head to WalMart. In my haste to get food shopping out of the way, I forgot to stop at a parts store to get a tire repair kit, then as I parted the threshold of WalMart remembered I can pick one up there.
This is just the tip of the iceburg.
There is not much to say about the time between my last day at work up until now but I will bring you up to speed. I’ll start with moving day. Samuel just love trucks so when he had a chance to sit behind the wheel of the moving truck, he wasn’t about to past that up.
|ok….i got this!|
|hmmm this might be a tight turn…|
The move itself took much longer than I thought it would and longer than it really should have. Yes we were two families moving to two different locations but we had more stuff coming here that I remember having.
