This weeks reflections (08.06.2014)

Read what happened in my last reflections post.

What lessons did I learn that I could build upon next week? Patience is greatly rewarded (which happens to be my favourite quote). My best friend since high school, the one who recently got married, had her baby on Friday. Malcolm and I drove through to see "Baby Malachigh" and it was just so perfect. My friend has always wanted to have a family of her own and it shows that with the right amount of patience, you will get what you have always wished for. It is surreal to think that my future children will play with this little boy one day.

Are my short-term efforts and long-term goals still aligned? Yip!

What could I have spent more or less time doing? I could have spent less time being sick. I had a outburst of flu this whole week and I had to take time off work to rest. I am getting better though.

What was my main concern and how did I find a way to put my mind at ease? We decided to pay occupational rent for our new house, just while the paperwork is being finalized. An empty house isn't a good thing especially "Ours". I was concerned about the moving time line but Malcolm was a real savior and sorted everything out. We collected the keys on Friday and plan to move next weekend as it is a long weekend and it'll give us time to organize and unpack.

What is the first logical step for next week? All these "house owners" responsibilities are becoming a reality. Next week I need to sort out electricity accounts, Telkom lines, ADSL transfers, trailer rentals, extra hands to help unpack and move. Malcolm will help a lot, as always, but there are a few things I need to sort out myself which is where I will start.

Me and Malachigh
I will be announcing something really special tomorrow so keep your eyes on this blog :)
