2.187: The New Plan

Let’s face it: I’m lazy. Me, the guy who once presumed he could teach any subject if given enough lead time to plan a lesson and learn the stuff he doesn’t know. That guy is lazy. Often the bastion of the lazy is to talk about what they could do if they weren’t lazy. And here we are. It is time to start talking about what I will do and what I will make happen over the next ten months. I’m marking it at ten, because I just suffered through the worst holiday season in my life. I have no intention of making things be that way again.

So, I’ve come up with a few plans. Plan A has me and my partner taking that al important next step together. Plan B has me moving into a temporary lifestyle where I get an apartment or (less likely) a house and downsize my living conditions to the bare minimum in exchange for a stellar location. Plan C has me collecting enough funds (and credit) to put a little down on a house and start a new life in that house for me and my boys.

I’m working for plan A. B and C are what happens when I don’t get the things I want, but they are opportunities to grow into a new life nonetheless. This old life is about done and all that remains is the process of transition–tying up loose ends and letting the kids finish out their sports ‘careers’ out here.

Some Thoughts:

  1. Ironically this 187 post also marks the death of my thoughts of moving from my current post. I’ll stay and finish where I’m at.
  2. Weird moments in the house all night. I don’t feel like I’m alone. No, I’m not talking about the cat… where is that cat?
