I get quiet when I need to think
I've been thinking a lot, reading less, and thinking
There are three high-rise buildings along the right
of this image. I parked my car in the underground garage of the
one on the left and walked over to the elevator bank.
Having done this before I wondered just what I was
Would we click?
Is this a waste of time?
We spend most of the day and part of the evening on
Thursday at lunch I told him, "If you were in
Michigan, I'd start on Monday."
I told him, this would be a lot easier to try and
work through if we had another month or two of time. As it is, school
starts at the end of August, and I leave at the end of next week
for 2 weeks vacation.
I told him that I thought that in order to make it

Now I am predisposed to just pack up and get out of
dodge and land at the base of Pikes Peak.
Know what I thought when I saw it last week? I wondered

So now we dance around a bit. We've picked the schools,
identified a possible job for the spouse, found three or 4 houses
we could buy on a moment's notice, all thanks to the web.
Next I write a job description, even though said owner
of the firm has not responded to some of my questions about long
range planning and direction.
Then on Saturday we head on over to Lake Michigan
for the sunsihne on the beach. Eldest daughter is flying in to spend
most of the two weeks with us. That means when the vacation is over,
we'd have six weeks left in which to conclude the deal, which includes
taking son and spouse out to try and find the house, sell house
and business property in Michigan, and then pack up and move.
I'm not going to sweat it, because in my book divine
intervention is a good thing.
If it works it will be really really interesting ride.
