Support Systems

Posted 12-17-2008 at 02:34 AM by Scott

Hi All Y'all (shades of a Southern Friend of mine),

Having just survived an 84 hour power outage without alternative energy or heat sources - I have to tell you how incredibly important it is to have a support system in place.

I managed to "avoid" moving my frogs the first two nights with a combination of methods: 1) First Night I used the heaters that we use for shipping, 40 hour heaters. I placed 2 of them in mason jars, put window screen over the top, and...

Hold on to your hats people. Or your wallet.

But especially, hold on to your house.

Eric G. wrote in a thread recently about overbuying early on - and then doing everything he could to hang on to the house through a bad time. I'm paraphrasing here - but his thoughts were spot on.

Job Update

Posted 10-14-2008 at 01:07 PM by Scott

Thank you for the comments friends. I appreciate that I'm not necessarily ranting in silence.

The temp contract job is definitely ending this week.

The good news is the old company is contracting with me for 200 hours of work at a very nice rate. This delays the "problems" a bit longer.
