    i try to do all the things that you don't always have time for during the season. i go to the eye doctor, dentist, get a haircut, stock up on supplies, etc.

    I may just do that, I still have my eyes on a few commercial properties I'd like to possibly bid on, and Hedberg did send me some info on obtaining a commercial acct with them. The remaining letters w/ proposals are being typed up as o type this. All I have left besides that is to get a DOT inspection and then like I said about my graphics guy, then I'm good to go!

    Yes I know, I need to learn how to relax but its's not really me.*My dad is the exact same way, pretty rare he sits down & relaxes.
    I'd go down south to FL or TX to ride/race mx but I'm at the point where I'd rather put profits towards reinvesting rather than vacations.

    Research parts and availability, spend a lot of time reading Lawnsite, finances, taxes, get back in shape. Watch too much TV, clean up the shop, refinish furniture. Try not to drive anywhere to save gas....

    I've been in a weird state. Totally un organized. Not taking care of paperwork like I normally do. I don't know why. My mind says "I'm not even busy" when in reality I am

    I have agree with the slow renewals, I've had only one come back!

    No gf/wife for me (no way I'd get married at 21 anyway), but a gf sounds like more trouble than its worth.
