oh, the irony...

This may seem to be a little bit like bitching, and I suppose it could be... We haven't had rain in over 2 weeks. It's been fairly non-humid, non-smokin hot for about 2 weeks here in West Central Ohio. Well, guess who has a golf outing today... And guess what the weather is forecast to be... It's already 81% humidity, I can deal with that... It's supposed to be 88+, I can deal with that too, no biggie. But, the showstopper.... severe thunderstorms forecast for this afternoon. We tee off at 1pm. I smell a rat. Hopefully this poop weather will hold off but, I dunno. It kinda figures, I've been on task, workin' like I am supposed to, hardly any golf all summer and don't ya know that the first day I get an officially sanctioned (by my wife) day of golf and man stuff. And the weather is supposed to be poop for the first time in over two weeks. I am pretty sure it has nothing to do with me (my disease would like me to believe it's a plot formulated by the IBSC and HP) but, I know better. It is what it is. But, I have to say that I will be kinda bummed if we get rained out. So will the local athletic boosters, they are the ones who are benefitting from the outing today.

Ok, enough of that self-absorbsed whining and moaning... poor me, right? I didn't have time to post yesterday. I do hate to miss posting but I had lots ta do and not enuff time to do it... Honestly, that's a good problem at this point. That means I am fairly busy at work. I've begun to get the loan pipeline churning and it looks like I may have a loan closing here in a week and a half, with hopefully two more right behind those. I'll leave the outcome to HP, but it's hard not to get just a little excited to see things coming together. The key now, is to keep going, to keep getting deals into the pipeline. I am notorious for the "laurel resting period" once I get a few ready to close. My goal is to always have several loans in varous stages of completion so that I don't hit those dry periods where I am starting over again on filling my pipeline.

Prayer for the day...


God/HP, thank you for Your Gift of continued sobriety. Thank You for reminding me not to pray fo rselfish ends such as oh, I dunno, a day free from rain. Maybe the farmers are hoping for a niec drink of water after all, it is frickin' dry round here. God, I pray that no matter what happens today, that I am able to recall all the Blessings in my life, that I am able to maintain an attitude of gratitude and service, even if I play golf and suck, or if we get rained out. Thank You for teaching me thru AA that there is simply no reason at all for me to get angry, or ruin my day over that which I have no control.

Happy Saturday, peace to y'all!

Ya know it's that damn MURPHY and his friggin LAW that makes things like this happen! I swear if I ever meet that guy I'm gonna give him a swift kick in his youknowwhat!!! (wink wink!)

Well I hope the rain held off until after the post-golf game show so both you AND the farmers got the goods.

Thanks for sharing your prayers with the world... I look forward to reading them each and every day for a little inspiration!!!

Have a fantastic week :O)

actually Katy, it did jsut that, it held off until we were coming up the fairway of #18, then it rained lightly on and off for a couple hrs, so everyone got what they wanted.
