manly, arrrrrr

I'm not a John Eldredge fan and really have never liked his books.  Anywho, I couldn't help but think of him this weekend because it was a get 'er done weekend.  Being a homeowner, you are faced with things like the garage door not working, the garbage disposal breaks, and the hot water heater isn't doing you like it should.  Saturday was take the garbage disposal apart with roomie Eddie, check.  There is nothing like taking something completely apart and putting it back together and the sound you hear after you get all the pieces in line.  Ahhh, we can now throw pieces of food, oranges, and small kittens down there again...I mean...Next it was on to the Hot water heater.  My wife (saunders gibbes), wait, that's a joke.  Anywho, he had been saying that we didn't have much hot water and I noticed the same.  Not that we shower together.  Gross.  Well it would be a way to save water but highly homosexual.  Crawled under the house and was reminded of my father.  My dad is the hardest working man I know.  Even over 50, he still crawls under houses and fixes peoples' heat pumps.  I was reminded that he taught me about hard work and you should always do things right the first time.  I remember sticking around jobsites an extra hour just to make sure the smallest details were done right.  Most people would have left, not my dad, he did it right.  So I was reminded of those childhood days of crawling under houses and thankful that my house has a huge crawl space.  Honestly, why am I sharing all this, I really wanted to just say that I got the hot water heater fixed.  Now to test it out, what do you do?  You take an extremely long shower! OF course!  It was a good excuse and I was reminded in there that I have too many plans.  I have a huge struggle with focus.  I have so many things I want to do and I never really stop to just do one of them.  I sit around and think of all the things I want to do.  I have made up mind to stop doing this and do at least one of my projects. 

On another note, I thought I was going to Cali this week, but a change of plans, now I'm heading out to Houston tomorrow and then West Virginia!  Woo hoo!  And another note, thanks to my big brother and his kindness and connections, I got my first radio commercial!  It will air in Florence, SC for about a week, and I think around 70 times.  Poor people, they are going to be tired of hearing about the mortgage business :)
