I’ve decided to start this journal, mainly to track ideas, dreams, accomplishments and goals hopefully on a daily basis. See what I’ve done, make some adjustments and then act upon them. So.. lets begin, I’m on vacation from Job 1 (only 3 days though) and am on a honey-do list from C. We started this morning by hauling off all the carpet yanked up on the remodel, got the garage semi cleaned up and arranged so at least you can walk through it without falling over all the scraps, flea market finds and assorted kids bikes, balls and plastic swords… Rescued a bicycle from the dump, it was in remarkably good shape, one of those extreme trail bikes with knobbies and a mono-shock system,, filled the tires with air, WD40 on the chain and viola.. new bike for me to ride with 6.
Found a new app for LinkedIn Android for job search, looking for a full time salaried + compensation insurance gig.. found a couple worth exploring at State Farm, so I’ll drop resume and apply, all they can say is no right?.. Geico and Progressive both denied my existence and or qualifications for the positions they had open. my guess is that they saw how old I am and said.. “naaaa we’ll pass”.. I will start the process of scraping the ceiling in living room to get all the crap popcorn ceiling off and then we’ll be ready for paint. Move the hardwood into the room to “season” itself and then that adventure begins.. may need to lay a new tile hearth around the fireplace to compensate for the floor being off level by 1/2 inch or so.. shoddy construction during the homebuilding phase I’m sure..
Get some applications out,
write a Medicare policy, write an individual policy for a family,
clean up the house a bit before Mom gets here in a couple of weeks for a 2 day stay.( She’s driving across the country with her sister on the annual trek to Nebraska for the summer months, hope to see all the pics of her and my dads adventure in SouthEast Asia, pretty cool vacation if you ask me.)
Play more with the boys.. ride my new dump find with J, help C with his words, and just be a Dad
Dreams: Being able to use my talents skills in a way to financially support my family, give to my church and help others..that’s it.. more tomorrow…
