May Mid Month Fill In

Well, it has been a weird month. My wife is going in for surgery in the early June and it is going to be quite a strain on our finances (I'll probably have to come up with up to a month's worth of her salary). Needless to say, I have not finished writing the book. In fact I have done nothing with it lately. I'm just not feeling very creative I guess (more overwhelmed and worried than creative).

To compound these problems, a check I was expecting from a customer in early April was unable to be cashed (due to them issuing it from a Canadian bank and my bank being American). A replacement check is on its way but not issued as of yet. On top of that, some work I was supposed to be doing for another client keeps getting postponed. The guy is just too busy to send me an NDA and discuss the project. I'm not sure what that means but I'm sure it will shake out one way or another.

This month is a solid reminder that we are not really in control of our lives. The only thing we can control is our reaction to external stimuli. My response ... pulling out all my hair (look at my profile picture to see what I mean) ;-).
