Hopefully my wife's 2 business ventures start to take off, while I keep the reliable income coming in. One is a local service based company, the other is internet sales. If things go well she'll quit her 3rd part time job as an employee.

At least until Bernie Sanders is president and then we'll just quit everything and go on welfare.

That's not how it works. You see some of us, and by us they always mean "YOU", will still need to work and produce, so "YOU" can be taxed. Where else does the magic money come from?

I will be building a new home this year on a lake property that our family owns here in Maine. It's a short drive to a couple of good size towns. I have a couple of good friends that will keep me working , when "I" want the work, so semi-retirement seems like a really good fit for the moment. Winter in Florida with my sister and brother is what will happen after I finish the house. Anyone know where I can hire a good electrical contractor, LOL ?

I'll just work my guaranteed job given to me by the government and live in my government housing and buy food with food stamps and if I become discontent put on a hi-vis vest and burn some $hit.

Again, allow me to correct you.

Part of the deal is that you can't and don't think for yourself. You will now become part of the flock, the flock or peaceful and conforming little sheepies!

Free Money
Free Food
Free Housing

All for not ever thinking, just conforming.

Actually, quite a few of the basic tract houses are 2 story. They can get more square footage on a small lot that way.

In town, the dirt is easy to dig, it's just dirt. Out where I live, there's lots of rocks.

Last Monday morning, I woke up knowing it wasn't going to be a good day. I had been putting off what needed to be done, knowing it would be beyond painful for me.

What are your plans for 2019?-5193283086_f583f8417d_o.jpg

10 years ago I rescued this amazing cat, Lemur. The truth is, I didn't rescue him. He rescued me. Yes, I realize he was "just a cat" but I had come through some really tough times and he became my buddy. He became family. He gave me 10 years of unconditional love. When I knew it was time to give in and allow him to be put to sleep, it devastated me. When his pain was finally over, it left me broken.

That night, the phone call came that my pain was just beginning. I lost the strongest man I ever knew. The man that made me who I am today. My daddy.

What are your plans for 2019?-daddy.jpg

I was no longer broken. I was shattered.

Today, I woke up thinking about 2019. I am not usually big on changes, let alone resolutions, but heartbreak makes you take a second look at things. It helps you realize what is and isn't important. You discover what really matters.

I do have some changes I will be working on in 2019. I tend to be a bit of a workaholic. That isn't going to change but I am going focus on working smarter without letting my work time consume me, not allowing it to define who I am.

I am going to find ways to spend more time outdoors, doing the things I love most, those things that bring me peace. I am going to focus on LIVING every day.

Sorry for your loss @Cricket. For what it's worth, it is normal progression for parents to predecease their children. When it happens the other way around is when it's totally batchit uncomprehensible. May he rest in peace.

I'm sorry to hear you have suffered so much loss at one time @Cricket. I hope the pain will subside from you sooner than later. May God Bless you and help you through this most trying time in your life. Remember that when you are overwhelmed and feel like you are drowning that our Savior walked on water. Keep reaching out and talking about it and that will help ease your pain. God Bless you.

It seems when things go bad they get worse before they get better. There are no words that I can say that would make you feel better. I am truly sorry.

As for me, my life was turned around years ago and I was broken but a walk thru the children's cancer hospital was enough for me to appreciate what a long life I have. My goal is to try and remember that when things get bad.

An old saying that I have always enjoyed "I complained because I had no shoes until I saw a man who had no feet". It helps me at times and my goal this year is to help more people who are down on their luck. I hope I can.

Business wise-- I intend to keep going but perhaps work a bit less...

I'm sorry for your losses, Cricket. One was bad enough but 2 is almost intolerable......

I wish you the best of the best,
Rob.

I gave up long term planning years ago. Since it's not 2019 yet, haven't even thought about. Good news is I went back to work last week. Plantar facetious of the right foot has calm down enough, to where I can wear work boots for 8-hours. I get reminded of my Lateral epicondylitis of the right arm from time to time. At least the Ankylosing spondylitis (stiffneck), Iritis and Psoriasis is under control, to a point that I sometimes for get about it. I should give up riding that dam motorcycle around and around and around at the race track

@Cricket

I am not one for words when it comes to loss. I have experienced it yes, but I know each loss affects people in different ways. Sometimes it is immediate, sometimes it is months or years later, sometimes it is forever.

They say time heals all wounds and I can say that I do believe that to be true, but we are often left with scars to remind us of the tragedies. That I also believe isn't a bad thing. It keeps these people in our memories, in our hearts, allows us to still see them in our minds eye.

So go and get out there in the woods, remember Lemur (great name by the way) and your dad. Do some of the things he loved in his memory, things maybe you did together. It will be emotional, but it will help you heal as you do things together in your mind.

Just my 2 cents, our hearts are with you and everyone else here who is going through the difficulties in life.
