Lost in A book

Argh! I had an entry typed but now it’s gone. And the sad thing is, I can’t even remember what I wrote about besides some social commentary that probably no one cared about. I had the house to my...

Meh in A book

Ok, I’m over painting. haha. (That didn’t take long) I know this is DIY life, but I keep finding lots of things where the previous owners of the house did things in sort of a half-hearted way, or...

Forgotten titles in A book

Hah. I called that last entry “mud” because I began writing with drywall mud on my hands and clothes, but then I forgot to talk about it. All the DIY life stuff is in full swing. I’ve done a mill...

Mud in A book

Been thinking about Prosebox and the state of things, re: the doxxing that everyone knows about, and I feel like the community could use a word of calm about it all. I really feel like the threa...

Here in A book

Ok. I am here. The move is done, I write from in the house, and almost everything is final. We loaded up the entire home in MN on a Saturday morning, and by midnight it was all inside our new hom...

Memo to PB in A book

Let’s write, don’t hide. Be open in “public”, candid in “members only”, safely anonymous in all, except for people you trust 1 on 1. This is a community, and for it to thrive we need to be here ...

Better in A book

Hey there. I’m doing better than I was. Like I mentioned last time, I had fallen into one of my anxiety holes for a few days. It happens, it happens to a lot of men anymore I think - it’s the pr...

Overwhelmed in A book

I am back here again… in one of my anxiety spirals. It’s been a couple of years, and this time I don’t really know in particular what is getting to me. I have started a new job. This is my seco...

The spirit of the age in A book

After an IG live discussion the other day, I wanted to write something about the state of the times in which we live, so I though I’d write about this here. Everyone so angry and opinionated that...

Looking up in A book

Things are definitely looking up. I think 2021 is going to be a very good year. Honestly, with all there was that was bad about 2020, as I have mentioned before we really did a good job of not j...

Process in A book

Everything is in process on the house. I’m excited about it, and honestly it’s been amazing how everything has just fallen right into place here. The jobs, the home, everything lacing up just as ...

It's been 84 years in A book

… that I’ve been looking for a house. It’s sort of comical at this point! Hah. So far we have been outbid on 3 houses. I have a fourth bid out right now, and we should find out about that one to...

Miss x2 in A book

Well, we are 0-2 on the houses. Outbid twice so far. It’s kind of comical what people are doing right now. We are not going to fall into that trap of bidding things way up. I might pay a premium...

Phew (e) in A book

Things have been pretty wild lately, it seems like I’m running around all the time doing … well, lots of crazy business related to the move and the new life. Put in an offer on a house today. Re...

Impossibility in A book

Things have begun. I told my boss today. I really - if there’s anything I regret it’s hat I have to go when she’s been so good to me and so loyal to me. I really tried to express that gratitude ...

Nascence in A book

Nascence means a coming into being, an inception, the outset of something. The start of something and all of this. Which is where we are. I heard back from the prospective employer, and they acc...

Peace in A book

No news as yet on the job front. I talked to them again today and I made my case about the details around the salary. I think they will probably agree to my proposal because it’s very reasonable,...

Deletion in A book

Not the best week so far, but I am pressing on. I have not heard anything yet about the job just yet. I had the second interview last Monday, Feb 22, and it all seemed to go great. The manager t...

Perfect in A book

I think I should be hearing about the job this week. They told me 1-2 weeks, and this would be the second week. But the day after the second interview I received a request from them to enter my r...

New in A book

So I decided to start writing in this book again just to… close the book on other things, on a chapter of life that wasn’t the best, and to look forward to starting things anew. Maybe anew, anyw...
