I have been away from my hometown for over five months and have already lost two more of my relatives.
I guess it is because they are all in their 70s now and that seems to be the limit for most of them.
My dad went at 73, my uncle at 72, and now my aunt at 78. It makes me wonder if I should move back home to be around them before they are all gone. My mom is still doing fine but you just don’t know and I would like to see her some more. The HVAC contractor in town here keeps me busy with work and my band seems to be heating up, so I really need to stay here and see where the band goes over the next couple of years before throwing in the towel. This is my dilemma; stay here and chase my dreams or go back home to be around my flock of family and friends. What would you do? Keep the heating tech job here and follow your bliss on your own basically, or go back home to spend time with your loved ones and work for your buddy, the local contractor. What I don’t like about the States is it is too busy for me, with all my friends working on their houses and no free time to hang out anymore. I guess I’ll do my cooling rep work here and push forward with my dreams to see where they take me, and if it starts heating up I feel I’ve made the right choice.
