@Doos you lucky guy. I decided to bite the bullet, and put another order in. Just ordered one thing this time. There's people saying they made second and third orders days after, and they've arrived, still waiting on day one orders. So maybe I'll get my order I placed 10 days after legalization before my day one.
I'm pretty excited to try the pre rolls for the novelty. My wife is going away with my kid for 4 or 5 days in November, so I'm gonna indulge then. So I'm not in a huge rush to get my order.
It's been a while since I've been on. Been so busy with work, school, and dad life. Throughout the year I've been trying to quit smoking. Must say it hasn't been the greatest year to try to quit. Lots of stressors in my life, it was also the only outlet I had (so I thought).
I've had a rough go the past several months, Im selling the restaurant. There's a number of reasons why this is happening, business is very, very hit or miss. We have had a rough go since we opened it two years ago. The tourism industry in the city is declining due to the political landscape south of the border, and it's been a major strain on my wife, and I. And to be quite frank I'm 100 percent ok with this. (Selling it that is). I think it's about time I had some positive change in my life. I've been in the industry so long, and I've realized how toxic it is. No matter how hard I've tried to change the industry, in my restaurant that is. It's still the grueling toxic industry that I once loved. I guess becoming a father has changed me. The industry is full of drugs, booze, and rock 'n roll, that lifestyle is a single man's game.
I have chef friends that have older children, and they all regret not leaving the industry, you miss birthdays, first steps, hockey games etc. So when it sells i'm going to be looking forward to being a father. Once it sells i'll have so much time on my hands. It's going to be weird doing my 8 hours, and going home after.
I'm still battling a broken foot, I got some closure about a month ago. To sum it up. I'm not getting surgery. I was sent back to work 6 weeks too early, and it rebroke, healed (a little), broke again. This Saturday will mark a year since i broke it. It's giving me less grief everyday, so i'm taking that as a positive. I have to go back to the doctors soon to get checked out, but im hoping i'll be able to get back to the gym on a more full time basis. I can go now, but i have to take it easy (no running, stairs) I can cycle however, but i can't do any leg exercises that involve pushing.
I have some contacts im to reach out to once the restaurant is sold. Basically we are trying to get more support in the county for mental health. There are a few organizations that were trying to get onboard, one deals with drug addiction, another deals with mental health, were trying to create a one stop for everything from addiction, to mental health, to crisis response. I may be going through school for Law Enforcement, but my goal is to get into Crisis Intervention. So basically i'm attempting to setup the framework with this collaboration to take it to the county, and municipalities. So i've been pretty busy hoping to get back on here more, over the next little while. Ohh, and i've been smoke free 14 days!
I hope everyone had a fantastic summer!
Last year I had bought a house. It was a contractor special, so over the last year, and a half we have been doing a ton of work to it.
I renovated the back addition, and the upstairs (I just need to put a new floor down upstairs when I have two or three days off, which is on my agenda over the next few months.) The backyard has been landscaped, and next season I'll be pouring a concrete walkway, and a hotub pad with some anchors for a new deck.
Anyways, yesterday I had hired a company to put some spray foam in the attic, there was absolutely no insulation up there before, just the rafters. All I can say is WOW huge difference. I got home today, 30+ degrees outside, and the house is sitting at 22 without the AC on.
Gotta love adulting, but shit I was talking to a realtor friend, and he said my house has doubled in value, (without the Reno's) he said with the Reno's I've done already, he said to add an extra 75-100k on the figure he gave me.
Our plan was to flip the house, but we're leaning to keep it, put 50-75k into it to bring it up to firecode, and bam we have a legal duplex which will net us close to 3k month
I haven't done stocks, as of yet. It's something i'm eying up. Those tech startups are where to invest though. My brother however invested a bunch into the pot stocks, and so far has made a bunch off of that, even my cousin invested in those, and he hasn't worked for a year, cause his stocks are paying for his rent, food, extracurriculars.
