2). Blog Entry: Life Lessons
- This past week, , my wife and I had a chance to travel to North Central University in Minneapolis, MN for Regional Board Meetings. Since she started her new job as a realtor in Grand Island (check out here business page here) we haven't had much time to get away by ourselves, so we especially enjoyed the trip. Kim's mom came to Grand Island to watch our kids while we were away.
- On our way to Minnesota, we got a call from Kim's mother. A teacher had escorted one of our children out of the school while she was picking them up, relaying information to her about their poor performance. We talked with our child on the phone, feeling bad that we weren't there in person to take care of the situation.
- The next day, a customer called our home with interest in several of the items my wife had posted on Craig's List. They came by and took a look at several items, purchasing them on the spot. Once again, we felt bad that we weren't home to handle the extra work around the house.
- Isn't that how it often happens? As soon as we leave, things get 'out of control'. My mother-in-law did a great job helping us out and wasn't inconvenienced in the slightest bit, but we felt bad that it happened while we were away. Lessons I've taken away from this situation: 1) Get time away with my wife regularly, 2) Expect the unusual when that occurs, 3) Lean on our family for help
