Short Weekend

It has been nice to be home unfortunately it is a soggy weekend and it looks like I will not be riding so I have just been lazy, except for my former GM called and asked me to help him with some wiring, he is adding an office to a garage he owns he already wired the room but wanted to put in a temporary power feed until he gets the new meter put in so I spent a few hours there with him running new wires and figuring out how to tap into the breaker box in the main garage we got it all done and powered up. It is funny how many people ask me to do electrical work just knowing I am going to school for it but every job I do adds some experience and if it is this easy to find work before I get the education it should not be a problem after I graduate with a degree. I did what laundry I had to do and just been repacking for Monday I think I figured out how to put everything into one suitcase that will make things easier. I think here in a little bit I am going to go visit Mom and Dad things have been going OK with Dad he is home recovering.

I was suppose to go camping next weekend but due to my traveling I am not going to be able to pull it off they are all leaving for Wellsboro Friday afternoon at 4:00 PM it is about a 7 hour drive with my flight as late as it is I will be getting home at 9:00 then for me to drive up there I would get there at 4:00 AM sleep for a couple hours then get on a horse and ride all day, sleep in a tent, then ride all the next day, I figure I would be getting home at midnight then have to leave again for Connecticut at 4:30 AM Monday morning so I decided it would be too hard to do all that and I would really not have all that much time to relax from working up there all week I will lose my $125.00 deposit but it is just another sacrifice I need to make I really needed to keep the paycheck coming as long as I can. Crissy said she is going to try to find someone else who would want to go that way I might be able to get my money back.

I never realized how hard it would be to work out of state like this there is not much to do but work, eat, and sleep but my days go by fast, I think by the end of the week I was getting more used to the physical labor I am not used to that for the last 2 years I have been just managing all the work and people and doing tons of paperwork, and dealing with all the problems which are many in this kind of business, but now no responsibility other than just getting the work done it is good in a way but on the other hand I miss being important and not being involved in all aspects of the business. I have been hearing more and more about people losing their job like I am going to do through no fault of their own and they are all surviving so I am not alone here with the sudden job loss in fact there are a lot of people worse off than me my house is almost paid off so I don’t have that many bills except for my bike so I feel a lot better I guess because I know I am not alone. I am still getting job offers to stay with this company and move out of state but since I am accepted in school I am determined to follow my dream but I have to admit it is tempting Connecticut is a beautiful state I hope to get more pictures this time and I am determined to see the ocean, but in the end I will continue to live here in PA

Enjoy Life,
Tim 😉
