Well since I have time on my hands, I get to be my creative self and bust ass on my '31 Model A. I figure I have cut the build time actually in half since I could only work on it in evenings and weekends back when I had a real job. I am content. I am creating, and really living life without spending money since I had 98% of all the parts to finish up the "War Machine". Now it is just applying the time and labor and that is what I have plenty of now. I have never felt so free and happy. Odd since this I thought would be the most stressful part of my life, getting fired. Well I sit and thought, in the last 21 years the most I have ever been home as a traveling salesman was 1 week at any given year. That week rarely was just enjoying life and doing what I wanted each day and evening. It usually was a structured vacation or list of tasks to do at the homestead that I could never get finished due to my traveling career lifestyle.
Well now being home every evening for 49 days and nights, I truly feel free. I can get my chores on my house done and I can go create my dream car that has been a vision the last 5 1/2 yrs. Life should be stressful right now, but instead it is quite opposite, it is the best 2 months I have had in a long, long time.
