Tribal Days

The best part of being home is having friends and family nearby -my tribe, if you will. Over the weekend we spent a couple of nights hanging around campfires. It's an activity that humans have been doing for thousands of years. No wonder it feels so good.

I'm a funny mix of extrovert and introvert. Being alone doesn't bother me at all. There are times I crave and need it. On the flip side, it's great to be with people sometimes. The key for me is finding that balance.

I'm a pretty independent person and hate to bother people. However, it's been pointed out to me that really should ask for help more. That's exactly what I've decided to do. Monday I actually had help with my water line project. We moved a lot of dirt, rock, and tree roots. Progress is being made.

Just as important, I'm getting some other ideas on how to approach certain problems. It's a relief to have the help. The clock is running and winter is coming. With the progress I we made on Monday I'm feeling a bit better about getting things sorted out in time.



  1. It is always good to have help, if for no other reason than to give you moral support.

  2. It sure is. With two, the job seems to go by three times as fast.
