December Status Report

December was pretty uneventful for me in NC, but in Ohio, a snowstorm hit. That was good for the tire business but terrible for the move. The focus starting off the month was primarily just getting everything packed and to Ohio, even if closing was delayed.

During the packing, the client that ended the contract started needing a ton of work done. However, I didn’t really care about it and had no motivation to pause on the packing to get everything done.

Once packed up and in Ohio, I still had to wait before getting the new house. Closing was originally scheduled for the day after I got back to Ohio, but I quickly knew that was going to happen. That Monday, however, I did sort out some of the issues I was facing, which at least gave me hope that we were close to closing.

November Status Report

November started off on a Sunday, so it was slow. However, Monday started off with good news that was basically the hold-up to closing on the investment deal. However, Tuesday, everything was pretty much shut down for the election. That really didn’t help anything.

The house still seems a ways away from closing so I am considering a run back to NC. That would give me time to start packing, get the mail, and sell off things I don’t want to move. I also received notice that another client contract would end at the end of the year. Normally, I would be fine with it, but coming off last month with a contract ending, this means on January 1st, I will only have one client.

October Status Report

October started off with me still in Ohio. At the end of the two weeks in Ohio, the deal still wasn’t completed. So I spent the third week in Ohio, despite the original plan being just one. I ended up going to an auction for a house in Ohio that, if I would have gotten it, I would have lived in.

I am heavily considering moving back to Ohio to be closer to the investment and get things going more with those. The auction, however, was terrible. The house was a complete disappointment and needed significant work. The problem with an auction is when I finally see the condition and know work is needed, I don’t have a lot of time to figure out the cost of the work. So when the bidding starts, I have to aim low in order to have enough reserves for the cost of the renovations.

September Status Report

September didn’t start off too well. I had high hopes for everything to be back on track with the investments close to being finalized. None of that was the case. Investments were falling apart and my schedule was still completely screwed up.

To make things worse, I was still feeling sick. I did end up trying to get a doctor’s appointment, but with the whole Covid thing still going on, almost no one was seeing new patients. In order to establish primary care, I first had to schedule an appointment with a nurse. However, that wasn’t something I could get soon. I had to schedule for 2 weeks out.

August Status Report

With August starting off on a Saturday, it was pretty uneventful. It was made even more boring by the fact that the investment deals are starting to take off, but go nowhere unless it’s normal business hours.

The first business day of the month had some investment deals moving, but client work was still fairly boring. The nice thing about August is it’s a big vacation month before school starts back up, so a lot of people are taking off.
