WEEK 8.5 – Post 294

Well, it has been a bit since I have posted. I have had family from all over start arrivingturkeyday at my house this past Thursday. It is a tradition on my side of the family to hold Thanksgiving celebration on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. This year all my siblings and my parents came into town for the event. We all have not managed to be together for many years. Most of the family actually stayed in my house so needless to say it has been quite hectic.

The original plan was that most would arrive late Friday night or early Saturday morning but everyone except my brothers family actually showed up at various times throughout the day on Thursday. And believe it or not having them all here early was really nice.

You might expect with so much pressure having so many people in your house that it would be difficult to keep up the mental diet but it has been much easier since they all arrived than it was prior to their arrival. We have all had a very good time with not one single mishap the entire time. The stress levels have actually been much lower.

I would not be honest if I said I kept up with my readings 100% but I have managed to do so most days. Unfortunately I have not had a chance to even start on Week 9. Most of my family has now returned to their home states with the exception of my parents. They will be leaving early Friday morning. We won’t be seeing them on Thanksgiving. They will be getting together at my Aunts on my Mom’s side of the family. We will be hosting Thanksgiving Day this year at our house with my wife’s side of the family so things will continue to be busy around here through Saturday.

On Monday my oldest son leaves for basic training with the Navy so it looks like Sunday will be busy spending some last minute time with him. He will be in the Chicago area for 2 – 3 months of basic and then off to California for 2 years of training before spending another 4 years on active duty.

It looks like with all the activity for the next few more days I will not be able to give Week 9 any solid attention until Saturday evening and then I will probably catch up with Week 10 on Tuesday and then back to normal after that.

My Network Marketing business has also suffered from neglect with all this activity occurring so I am also looking forward to getting back with it next week as well. My wife has been really encouraging me to get back with it. She has seen that the checks continue to come in without too much change even though I have not been able to spend much time on it and she now realizes that this business is for real and she now sees the potential it has if I work a little harder at it. Just wish I had the time and resources to be doing the go90grow class right now. Hopefully another one will be offered in the spring. I would like to join in along with some of my team.

Happy Holidays for now. I will se you all with my full attention next week.
