Haha just a little fib

Good Morning peeps.  Ok yesterday i kinda left you hanging about my snooping on some total strangers.

Remember when the dude said:

‘Im serious she pulled it out right there on the train’. You may have to go back and read yesyerday.

He was actually talking talking about his cell phone.  His new girlfriend wanted to know who kept texting him. It was an old girlfriend. Hahaaha.

Ok maybe it was not funny.

This whole weekend ill be a bachelor, Jo on the move again, San Diego.  If anyone need any yardwork or construction work or painting done, hmmm dont call me  ill be resting up in case i have a busy week ahead.

As always

Dony forget to greet a total stranger today.

My habits.

Good Morning peeps. Im feeling a little fustrated today although im not entirely sure why.

My life is a bit of a paradox. We all need routine. As a parent we know how important that is to a child. But do we ever grow out of it?

I had a business once, software development, after working for the man for lots of years. My business routine on most days was getting up in the morning getting the kids off to school then walking to the basement and working. Sometimes ill go to visit my customers

That went on for about 5 years, then i got bored shifted my focus to contracting myself out. I still supported my software. The best part, i was able to leave home after the kids left and be back in time to meet them at 3:30 as they got off the bus.

Then the kids grew out of me. Did not want me to ‘baby’ them anymore.

We moved to Calgary and i found a job back working for the man. Routine.

Now i get up at 5am go to work, do a great job, leave work at 4pm go home, hmmm ok thats enough info.

Why the paradox? I hate routine. Thats why i started my own company. Unlike most men, i found a way to be with the kids. Guess what, to succeed i had to develop routines, which i hate.

I need to invent a new way, avoiding routine.

As always

The Children Home

Good Morning peeps. When i was really little i remember going to a garden party at the Childrens Home (add to your FB friends list) at the foot of the street where we lived. I dont remember if it was a fundraiser or just a fun party. In either case it is forever etched in my mind.

I also remember walking by the home, the fence was really high and covered in vines, i would look through the fence admiring the beautiful grounds and wondering how the chrildren who lived there ended up there.

I have some cousins that actually lived there and long after we had grown up one of them told me that her parents had gone off to England and had temporarily left them there until they got settled.

I remember the lady that ran the place name was Nurse, haha thats what we called her, i dont think that was her name.

Why am i reminiscing. Well this past couple of weeks i received a notice that the home was having their annual fundraiser, 2k walk and 5k run. The ad is posted on my timeline.

Of course i cant go to the fundraiser although i would have loved to. Instead i decided ill try and raise $500 by Christmas for the home and I need your help. No you wont have to send me any money, all you will have to do is purchase a book on Amazon. Amazon send me some money and ill get it to the home.

One of the nice things is that you can support a local SKN author in the process, a win win.

Its that easy.

Ill will give more details over the next sort while.

As always
