Wow just got a call wanting me to go to work in Cushing OK. Good money but not sure. Hate to leave the wife, she's physically not in good shape. Maybe I can get her to go with me. Might as well spend 3-6 mos in Tornado country.
Either you need the money or you don't. That's a decision only you can make. Sometimes you have to sacrifice for the future. Sometimes you have to remember that you are living in the now, and not the future. I'd give up everything I've worked for and achieved for the worst day with my wife. No amount of money can be placed on time. It's the one thing that we can't get back.
My grandfather always told me, the most important thing in life is your career. With out it, you can't have anything else. I've lived and worked by those words. But, there comes a time when you've done enough, a time when it's best to enjoy the time you have. Because, it's short. Days pass us by in the blink of an eye. Years go by with a whisper. And the only regrets that most have, is to relize too late that life isn't made up of the breathes we take. But the moments that take our breathe away.
I would just miss my wife the kids is the ones I would like to get away from the grandchildren I would miss a bunch. Told the wife I didn't want to go without her and she said let me sleep on it. Go figure. Could make over 2 grand a week take home
