    I hope

    Well after 3 years of not working for some one else. I hope I can handle it. Start full time working for a restoration company tomorrow am. Will be doing basically the same stuff I do now, remodel, additions, car ports, fire damage, and home repair. No more giant homes getting to old for them any more. Just not sure I can take orders from some one else. well not counting the wife Not to sure about having to do dress codes ( khaki pants and shirt with his name all over it.) O well as working for my self has always been ether feast or famine. Now at least it will be 40 plus hrs a week. She can make a budget and stick with it.

    "She can make a budget and stick with it." Stephen, that part of your post really hit home. I don't know how many times I heard Myrna say, "I don't care how much you make but can't you keep it even."

    Enjoy,

    Congrats on the new job.

    Not so sure I like "reporting" to someone though. I know I don't like that.

    Steady income is nice - but limited.

    Here's to hoping you totally enjoy/prosper from this adventure
    The perception of perfection is perfectly clear to everyone else

    Thanks all. Yea Larry I think it's the stress of not being sure, after the next job is what it is all about. Did just turn down a 2200 sq ft drop ceiling job just yesterday am, as it was take that job not knowing if or when the next one would come, or take this. O well it is what it is, and yea I already have a little bit of side work lined up for the weekend. Just not taking on anything to big.
