work

most of you reading this know that i have spent the last eleven years as an entrepreneur.   specifically the last seven have been brewing over with LostCoffee.  in a few weeks I will step away.  it will stay in Colorado, and will thrive.  a transaction will transfer my shares back to the company.   it seems uneventful that something as simple as a “transaction” can bring to a close something that has defined your public image for so long.  i’m more “ok” with it than i thought i would be.  the anxiety i have is about the future of my work.

i can’t sit still.  i will be working right away, but have no idea what.  where should i look?  where would i thrive?  what is in store for me?  I really have no idea where to start.

moving

it’s time for a change.  i read somewhere once that we are not meant to live in one place forever…blah blah.  is that saying real?  maybe it’s a simple saying to help diehards deal with change.  change is enviable. life is easier if you learn to enjoy change.  i don’t want to give you the impression i’m never worried or stress about change. the challenge and problems change tosses at you make some feel valuable.  i’m one of those.

on to the details.  nicole got a promotion and the boys and i are joining her on this adventure.

our house in Castle Rock will hit the market sometime in May.  the sooner the better, from what the experts say.  all those “honey do” list items are now coming due.  we are fortunate to live a comfortable life.  while doing so we neglect the things around us until they become uncomfortable.  the last few weeks have been full of fixing those things.  new roofs, new paint, new tile, new showers, and new fixtures have filled my life.  the next owner of this home will be very lucky as were we 18 year go.  we have a brand me baby boy when we bought this home.  He will graduate from high school before we leave.  this home has seen good times, comfortable times are good time.

it’s hard to believe that in the next three to six months we will be living in a new home, going to new schools and working new jobs.  the boys will be fine.  they embrace change.  i said to Nicole the other day that our boy will most likely marry a texan now.  she roller her eyes.  it’s interesting and scary to think that we may have changed there lives forever.  when ones children are younger you think you have time to fix things you screw up.  i hope that is the path nicole and i are on is best for them, and us.
