Probably the most significant change in my life patterns lately has been my promotion at work. ‘Twas a great promotion and I am glad that it finally happened. However, the flip side of promotions is the added work and stress. This holds true for me as well. Ugh… Such is life.
Heidi and I are dabbling in real estate lately. We are exploring the wonders of becoming “slumlords” (as my friends put it). I think it will be a good alternatice income if we can foster it and apply it properly. We have one rental property right now (not rented yet), and this will be our “dry-run” to see if this is a prudent endeavor. More to come.
I have stepped away from my side business at TRS to free up some of my time (although my duties at TRS were very light). I think the business will flourish if properly watered, but I know I wont have time to care for it. I wish them all well.
My father is still going through treatments for his cancer. He is doing well, is in good spirits, and soon the treatments will be over. I can’t wait to see him feeling better.
Heidi recently left me to go on a three week trip to Iowa with a friend. Ugh. It’s been absolute hell without her. I have to take care of the house and overstress myself at work now. Sure makes me realize just what the two of us are accomplishing together. Definitely a two person job (maybe 5 or 6). Or maybe I’m just a wimp. Most of all I miss having her to talk to. Silence can be quite noisy, if you know what I mean. I miss her terribly and can’t wait for her to return. She called me from Sturgis to say hello and to rub it in that she was at Sturgis! Heh, too bad she missed the bike rally by a week or two.
All for now.
