Another Routine Change

Scott Costello All, Blog, Featured Leave a Comment

Today is my wife’s first day back at work following 6 months off after the birth of our son Ben.  It’s a tough and emotional time for her for sure.  I’ve tried to think of a way to make it easier for her, but the reality is that nothing I can say or do will make her feel better about having to leave Ben for the first time in 6 months.  That bond between mother and child is something us men can’t really comprehend.

This also means that when I get home from work, I’ll be a single parent for the 5 hours each night.   This will change my routine once again when I get home from work.  I’m not nervous about taking care of my son by myself at all because he is a happy and content baby…lucky me I know!  He is my main focus, but beyond that I have too…

  • Make dinner for myself
  • Find time and a place to exercise (wife and I are going to buy a treadmill)
  • put together all my mail pieces
  • put together more mail pieces
  • write some new letters so I can split test my mailings
  • continue to work on si lead manager (beta 6 is really coming along with some big improvements!)
  • keep my blog posts coming

I’ve got a good plan that should work for my mailings, it’s just the other stuff (eat and exercise) that I’m going to have to figure out.

The Good

The check from Deal #4 has been deposited into my bank account and now all our focus is on finding another deal.  I want 2 more before the year is out.

Steph Davis from FlipThisWholesaler.net has asked me to do another rei success story over at her blog.  I told her I’d love to do it, but I’m not quiet sure when I’ll be able to right now.

(on a very generous note, Steph donated the Flip This REO ebook to me to give away in my Deal Closed Giveaway from last week.  She is the BEST!)

Books

I’m looking for a good book to read, if anyone has any recommendations I’d love to hear it.  Thanks
