June 19, 2008: Thursday…

  Well, it has been a long few weeks.  Not the best start to summer.  I am constantly reminded what is important in life.  It seems like we allow all of the little things to build up until they seem like something big.  In reality there are always going to be "projects" and "things to do".  Most of them are not all that important – some area – but most, in the greater scheme of life, are small.

  I don’t believe I will ever get used to not hearing Kent on the radio.  I am so used to saying "Com 10 to DES 1" – and I don’t think the habit will be easily broken.  I guess Kent will be watching the storms from above and will most likely have a better view than all of us.  I have a feeling he will be chasing many storms.  I will miss him – everyone will miss him.


  We have been in limbo over the last few days.  Long story short, we decided that it takes too long to drive from Mayfield to Massac County.  The gas isn’t getting any cheaper either.  So we were going to move back into Ashcreek.  As a matter of fact, I moved about half our stuff last weekend.  I guess it gave me something to do to take my mind off of everything else that was going on. 

  So anyway, I moved a lot of our stuff back.  Then the night before we were going to move, a couple called and wanted to stay in the house – for two days.  So, we let them stay.  They called today and I am not sure if they are going to buy the house or not.  It sounds like they have to sell their house first.  Soooo…what do we do.  Move back?  Don’t move back?  Uncertain.  I guess we will move back and if the house sells then that would be a good problem.

  The excavator is going to start next Monday.  We have put it off a few times – mainly to accomodate his schedule.  So, Monday it is!  I will take pics – of course.

  We are going to St Louis on Wednesday and meeting with a guy that does solar work.  We are exploring options and keeping an open mind.  I have no idea what we will end up with.

  The house design is moving along – I don’t have anything in hand but the architect is working on the project.  I hope to have something next week!  We shall see.  🙂

  The goal is to start the footer in July.  Will we meet that deadline?  I have no idea.  Set goals and strive to reach them. 

  David is in Paducah.  He is heading back to Canada late next week – he may return after that – actually he might meet us in Washington D.C. for the weather conference.

  Having lunch with Sue tomorrow.  Then perhaps a movie?  Unsure.   Lot going on.
