Looking for a silver lining
I wrote this to someone with whom I may be getting into a business relationship.
I have a beautiful six-year old who is having the best summer of her life with her work-at-home dad, and an extremely tolerant wife who indulges me in my hobbies and business projects.
I decided I needed to share this post with you guys because it pretty much sums up what I've done so far this June.
Gaia and her little Dog are at home for the summer.
It hasn't been fun suddenly punted into the world of "funemployment." But it has been different. And I've had a great time watching Gaia figure out how to have the kind of summer I remember having as a kid.
I was, as many of you know, a teacher's son, so my brother and sister and I spent our summers hanging out at home, keeping ourselves busy, and just generally being subject to our father's whim.
He had some whims, too. Going to swim in the lake, running out for 25-cent McDonald's Softserve, picking up Friday night sliders at the American Legion Hamburger Stand in Lake Mills.
It was a good time. And I feel like Gaia is having one too. I would prefer that we were having a good time together in a less financially precarious situation, but I'll take my silver linings where I can get them, I guess.
I'm working. She's working. And it's all good. Could be better... but it's good.
