Two months together and she is out!

Hey, there is nothing like having her here everyday in my life. That was so amazing to spend the 2 months together. Now, she is on the other side of the world and thanks to some great apps and Skype we are able to stay connected.

Just made her out 12-15 cards that she can open during periods while away. Hopefully they will reach her soon.

My valentine’s day was filled with thoughtful things from her – left for me so that I can feel her love. I sent her off with the same.

Love my kid! Love my kid. It really doesn’t get any better. OH KEEP HER SAFE> OH KEEP HER SAFE.

My one word for 2014 - Ease (read all 5 entries…)
This is a great word for me!

I love to make things harder and more challenging than they need to be. I think I am always trying to prove I am capable of superhuman powers.

Well – not this year. I am taking a year off of superhuman powers and into a life of ease.

On Friday someone told me I could lighten up in my work. Well – how about light and easy!

I can do light and easy.

I will lighten up. I will make this easier.

I will have more fun. I will play with work more.

I need to clear the decks

Sometimes you need a clean slate.
I’d like to do that here, as a way to memorize my six plus years here.

i have worked on many things and made many movements toward the good steps.

i have taken big leaps and made great strides in moving my dial.

right now I am afraid I took on too much.

we will see! but I need to rise to what I just did!



Get my credit score to 800 by next June (read all 11 entries…)
credit left and right

and now using it.

so….to review…in order to get my score higher, I needed credit and even though I always paid all my bills on time with money I had.

now, I am stuck with bills to pay…using credit.

I hate it, I hate it.

Of course, my score no doubt is in the stratosphere.

the mouse slayer

Last night, middle of the night, she found a mouse in the basement and put a cover over it. Today, she wanted me to handle it. With the flu under a total attack of my body, I instructed her on how to manage it.

She did.

I told her she had just graduated in the adult world to handling a very unpleasant experience – but a requirement for adulthood.
