My Future Up in the Air...

I took the day off from work today to take my wife to the doctor after finding out last week that she was pregnant again.  This was supposed to be a good day.  Then I got a call from my employee @ work and she asked if I had checked my e-mail this morning.  I actually had just done so in the last 15 minutes to make sure all was well while I was away from work.  She proceeded to tell me that the company had sold off certain locations to a competitor...and one of those locations was the one I manage.

I won't bore you with all of the details, but I work for a self storage company.  Exciting work, eh?  I've been doing this for the past 3 1/2 years after getting out of the crazy mortgage business and have enjoyed just about every minute of it.  Now I'm faced with the uncertainty of my future all while being the sole bread winner for my family (wife and 14 mo. old daughter) all while trying to figure out a way to pay the upcoming doctor bills associated w/ my wife's pregnancy.

I bring all this up to say that if my posts are a little farther in between each other you'll know why.  Until I know more about what my company is doing and how it impacts my family and myself the blog and my various hobbies will take a backseat.  Any pending trades will still happen, I just don't know how much buying and blogging I'll be doing for the next little bit.

Boy, when it rains it really pours.

  6. Dude,

    You'll be fine! I'm in year two of being a solo consultant and I have pangs of doubt, but then I have great validation. Hang in there!

  10. Colbey- I will continue praying for you and your family. Even in the midst of uncertainty, remember Pauls words to the Church at Philippi, that his God will provide for all their needs.
