It’s going to be another one of those “Oh, it’s been two months since I’ve posted!” posts.
You knew it, right?
I have things I want to say, every day. But not enough time to commit them to writing. And it’s making me crazy. I mean, right now, it’s 3:10 a.m. and I can’t sleep so I finally just popped open my laptop and here I am.
Our boys are making us crazy in different ways, but I’m not going into that here.
Work is absolutely making me jump through myself. Yes, it’s a feat. But one I, for the most part, can handle.
On top of my regular duties on the executive sales team, I put on several events for our oilfield populace. So I’m currently juggling several plates, all the way to November and back.
Last night, we had an API (American Petroleum Institute) meeting, featuring Dr. Michael Economides, a renowned author and expert on geopolitics. Over 200 people attended. We put this gathering together in less than 2 weeks, and it was a rousing success. Dr. Economides cracks me up. He’s wildly intelligent, funny, and sometimes seems to be “out there” in his thoughts about the energy industry. I, however, think his judgment is sound, based on facts, and I love to hear him speak. Dr. Economides never fails to open my eyes and further educate me in my own industry, one I’ve served for almost 30 years.
Holy Crapola Thirty Years! Man, time flies when you’re having fun.
Dr. Economides is from Greece. The aforementioned trip in the prior blog? Was to Greece. Here's a picture of yours truly and ThatManILove in a restaurant on the island of Mykonos. It was wonderful, beautiful, and we had a great time. If you get a chance to go to Greece, do it. The people are absolutely wonderful, and they were so grateful that tourists were there! I'll try to catch you up on that adventure sometime over subsequent posts.
|Fun on Mykonos!|
On the home front at Casa De Crazy, ThatManILove has taken a sabbatical from his most recent past client, and is looking around for his next gig. His timing couldn’t have been better, as we leased out one of our duplexes to a corporate client, and we had to furnish it and get it ready. The clients moved in this week. It was hard work, but fun, to furnish a property from the ground up. The clients were greatly pleased and seem to be enjoying the property.
And now, we have a trailer house to refurb. Once the refurb is completed, our plans are to move it to a lake lot. And we don’t yet know where. We have people begging to rent it where it stands, but it’s hard to refurb something to your own standards just to rent it out and put it in jeopardy. We don’t want to have to refurb it twice, right?
It’s now 3:24 a.m. Maybe I can catch a couple of hours of shut-eye…I’ve a busy day tomorrow! Blessings to all!
