What a day!!

Hey everyone,

I thought I would say a little something after my crazy day yesterday. It was very stressful but I was able to get through it.

I had to fire a guy I have worked with for 2 years and it was not very easy. The guy was a hard worker and usually meant well. The main problem was he always made dumb decisions. Sometimes certain people, no matter how hard you try, just can't get their $hit together.

This guy was over 30 years old, no drivers license, 3 kids, not married, in and out of relationships. It is just sad sometimes. I gave him my old cell phone so I could get a hold of him at work. And no matter how much you try and help him, he just kept screwing things up.

So I had to let him go. Time to move on. That was the first time I ever fired anyone. Then yesterday my wife Kellie had a small procedure done that I was worried about. And to top it all off yesterday was our 2 year anniversary as a married couple!! Whew what a whirlwind of a day.

So yeah crazy start to this week!! Hope all is well and lets kick butt this week!!

James, there isnt a day that goes by that I dont think about the two of you!

Life can be rough for a lot of people, but I believe you guys have seen the worst. I see the bond you have and know you can get through anything with the support of one another!

On another note, firing people SUCKS! And we had a guy like that in our business, and it was a bittersweet goodbye. But soon it will feel like a weight off your shoulders!
