Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda & What If?

I told myself over 20 yrs ago I would never say those things to myself if I could possibly help it. We can all help it. Last week I realised I really dislike my job. What is a hourly laborer doing reading business books and civic mind not trying to prepare theirselves for a more rewarding job??? Well if it's meant to be...It's up to me!! I may be hamstrung by our economy but, that is it.

I've begun the refiance process for my farm and am looking to get some business classes under my belt starting next fall(always better to start in the fall than spring due to class staggering). I'm trying to get in touch w/ the county developement/tourism director to see about setting up a metric century bike trek. He's a busy guy!! I stopped by the courthouse today & a lady promised me she would pester him till he returned my call! He wears a lot of hats(including undertaking some of the county airport manager duties).

I'm very busy and things are still steady at work. I am continually glad I never applied @ the competing window plant for a job. Their employees have made so many concessions and still no stability in orders/hours.
