Another Routine Change

Scott CostelloAll, 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 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!)


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