Day 24 Temptation

There are only 24 days left until l step into another phase of my life.  Just 3 1/2 weeks.  It's coming up fast.

And then l get a temptation.  Work (current job) approached me to go to Alaska for 6 weeks.  The thing is, l have a conference booked with my new job in Palm Springs the first week of April. So it would seriously conflict.  I was tempted, Alaska is usually a good place for us to make money.  The cost to me could be a serious set back with my new job.  I could tell them something has come up and l can't start beginning of April (and still go to the conference).  But l don't want to.  Metaphorically, shall we say, my bags are packed.  I have started my countdown.  I'm ready to move on.

If l went to Alaska, there are no guarantees.  No guarantee that my partner will book me lots of appointments(she tends to not do well when she's working a different timezone and the fiancee is home when she SHOULD still be working), no guarantee that people will take the appointments (we have been there just recently, and people tend to spend less, or not at all, the more times we visit them).  There is a guarantee that l don't like this company and l hate lying to customers.

The only guarantee l have that it will serious set me back in my new job.  I need to get things lined up for the summer to make it successful.  But l can not lie.  The temptation was there for a while.  I did toss it over in my head, and woke up more firmly decided on me passing it by.


  1. For some reason, I thought you were retiring in 24 days. I didn't realize that you were going onto another job. Good luck in your new venture!


  2. I wish l could retire now. I'm aiming for the summer time and chill the winter in the southern states. Fingers crossed.

  3. Good choice on skipping Alaska. You're right on track for your new life!
