1,000 Views On My Profile

It has been 9 months but now after checking my profile views it has reached a 1,000 give or take I guess about 30 times when I have checked to see how many have looked. I don't even know if when I check my profile it adds mine as well but I am assuming it does.

What does all this mean? It means somewhere out there people have expressed some interest in who I am and what I do. I am flattered to say the least and grateful that people actually would take the time out to check.

You know waiting on tables has been good to me. It has allowed me to see and do things most people do not have an opportunity to do during their lifetime. Without this industry I wouldn't have met my spouse and have the two beautiful kids like I do now.

Despite some difficult times I honestly don't know what else I would do. When the money has been good it has been very good. The scheduling around bringing up our two boys and not needing a babysitter or day care to do it has been fantastic.

Running around on the dining room floor has kept me in fairly good shape as today I am wearing a shirt I bought in Bali back in 1995 and it still fits like it did when I bought it.

I am still like a kid with a lot of dreams inside my head. Always planning and thinking of the future and wanting to do more things with my family.

But it is getting tougher nowadays to get by and relying on gratuities for a living. Things aren't getting any less expensive out there. Especially when your spouse does the same thing for a living it is like a double whammy. It is more and more becoming an industry for single people.

Like I have said in earlier posts a change is coming soon as far as career direction.

But in the meantime thanks for looking and reading!
