one day at a timePosted: June 17, 2011
That’s the way it been….we decided to go to Houston (after my time at IP) and Haley would work a temporary travel nurse contract for three months. I was going to explore my options for starting up shop while in Houston and see where we stood at the end of the three months. See, San Diego had options for the both of us with work, but we wanted to give our hometown a good shot. So while on the road, somewhere in Oregon, we got a phone call that said Haley’s temp job in Houston fell through, so a cheerful car with music loud driving south turned fast to “what the he%$ are we gonna do?? For the next twelve hours we took turns sleeping, driving through the night, asking God for an open door somewhere? That next morning Haley had a phone interview, while driving, and got a five-week job in San Diego. I got on the phone and secured bench space at good friends shop… and by that night we were eating homemade pizza over a good glass a Tobin James and sleeping in our friends guest bedroom in La Jolla ….. God is good:) So we are still taking it a day at a time and now we are house-sitting at our friend Jeremy’s house for the next month, which is also where my bench space is, just a few steps from coffee pot to shop.
His place is super cozy with a sweet view of the lake
The house might just be temporary but I went ahead and got set up in the shop in case I am there for a while, also got started on my first project with some “scrap” teak and ash I got from the cut off been before I left IP.
It was nice unpacking my tools, making a few quick shelves, and setting up a place to work!
