Well, we've decided to somehow get our house, in its disheveled state of constant construction by me and demolition by the kids, in shape for a birthday party for me this year.
That, on top everything else, including helping the kids run two businesses, and, oh yeah, getting published.
How did I ever have time to hold a job?
(And somehow the threat of running out of money and having to go back, still lingers.)
Speaking of the businesses, I've also been working like a madman to get their websites and social media all set up and inter-linked with etsy and ebay so they can do selling online. I think getting this going for them may take their businesses to the next level, not only in terms of larger audience, but also better margins due to less of a "bargain bin" mentality you get at farmers' markets and swap meets.
And the only other thing to report is that I was working on a cabinet today and, due to a mishap, wound up taking a heavy steel pipe in the gut. I'll spare you the pictures but I have a nice black and blue gash across my left side abdomen.
I could say that at that moment I only thought and said things befitting a man of God.
But that'd only add lying to the list of offenses.
I'd say I hope I'll do better at that next time, but frankly, I could do without there ever being a "next time". Because... OW!
But hey, doing stuff means risk. And even with that, it still beats not doing stuff.
So I guess for all my pain and complaining I wouldn't change a thing.
Live YOUR adventure!
