Well, I have since my last post shut the doors on my business and got a job to support my family. I have sold some of my unused tools for extra money to get by and then sold my truck.

I have since bought another truck and still enjoy the little time I get to spend in the shop.

My oldest daughter has two kids making me a proud grampa!

My oldest son has been living in Alaska since September and seems to be finally growing up!

My youngest boy is Mr. baseball! 12 months a year! Lots of fun there!

My youngest daughter is amazing! At 6 years old she is the most challenging of all our kids!

My wife still homeschool’s the two younger kids and spends a lot of time helping with our local Little League.

I still have one woodworking job that I will probably do as long as I am able to. I make custom shipping pallets and crates for a local fabricator. It can be a bit too much at times but the extra money is really worth the effort as it allows us to keep my wife home with the kids!

That’s it for now… I will try to not to wait so long for my next post…

I still keep up will what my friends her on LJ are doing and it’s really encouraging!

Sorry to hear you had to sell some tools. In todays time we have to do what is necessary. I made a MAJOR move to be with and help the grandkids. Financially maybe wasn’t a good idea, BUT we are glad WE did (Grandma & ME) . Hope your new job works out well, sounds like you enjoy ! (Thats a good thing)
