Thanks for all the birthday wishes, and yes; today I hit the big 80.
My first call today was a clogged full laundry tub of kitchen sink scraps from a garbage disposal, chemicals, everything and when I scheduled a 10-12 slot, they called at 10 and said it drained itself down. YES!
I try to never work on my birthday, even though I'll be doing that today here at the shop.
JC you know me too well.
I figured I'd hone in on some of my plumbing skills today while I've got the day off...sort of.
Oh I wish I could take the day off paid. That would be awesome.
I started out with $22 in my bank account, I think I'm at $90 with a $210 deposit to cover the charges over the weekend.
There for a minute I thought I was going to slow down but I can't.
Took on one service call after one cancelled earlier. Pedestal Lavatory was clogged, got it open even though the piping is a mess.
I impressed this guy since I insisted I take "one more pass" at that drain and it paid off.
Had enough time to grab a sandwich and headed directly to my meeting I had tonight, it's a meeting for business owners locally.
Since I've been home (9pm) I've been building a facebook groups page for our local christmas walk which will interconnect with the christmas walk website I'm building as a contribution to the city. Time consuming and I'll be working on this into the night for sure.
I love working on the internet like this because your work never disappears and when you see the community come together (through membership/interaction) it is just so rewarding.
As you see, I'm a glorified workaholic of the extreme. Always remember that if you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life.
Even though I started off on a lazy mode this morning, I know now that at age 40 that I have to really work harder and more efficient than all the years before because I'm not young,
"MIDDLE AGED MAN" now.
Still, I'm having lots of fun. I want to go places that no disabled plumber has gone before!!!
It was a great day though because this is the first time in 8 years on the internet I've acknowledged to anyone when my birthday was. Thanks again for the well wishes!
