Dave and I have a “getting larger all the time” family. And we like it that way. And lately it has been occurring to us like we are busting out at the seams. So we choose to renovate our home. We looked at many homes. And if I had found one that would have worked, we may have moved. But we didn’t, so we hired a Draftsman who recommended a Site Planner and we spoke with our friend who is a Contractor. And got the ball rolling.
Actually it wouldn’t be as far along as it is now if Nino from Roma Builders hadn’t spoke to me in Walmart about our plans. (thank you Nino).
I also have a friend who happens to live next door and is married to a Construction Magician (also my friend) and she loves to design things. So she is off to her house with a copy of our plans and is out to design the home of our dreams.This is a difficult process. I have dreams. See myself walking around in my new home and then I have to convey what I want to someone else in a way that they understand and turn it into the plans that will eventually become my reality. And there are bumps along the way.Good thing I am in a Seminar right now about Being Effective and Living Life with Velocity. It keeps me going and I love my supportive group that listens for whatever news I have to share about my successes or my failures.
See Landmark Education for a Seminar in your area.
See Mapping Your Money a site to help you get to where you want to go.
This is the first time in my life (at least that I can remember) when I have been so focused. A lot of my time is spent in communication with our Team on the Speaker Services group for a Conference that is coming up in May. I haven’t even begun to think of when we will move out of the house to get it all done. I am asking for a few miracles here. Next post will give the update on what is happening.
Enjoy your day and remember whoever you are dealing with, is somebody’s kid. See if that gives you a different perspective on life.
