Tacs Hormonal

What's happening to Tac? He's been so emotional the last several days, it's shocked even him. Feelings are ranging from pre IMWI complete breakdown/freakout to total pragmatic acceptance to slight despair that all the training will end and some hard realities are soon to begin. Training for Ironman is tough. As Trimama loves to say, "If anyone could do it, everyone would be one". True and training for Ironman Wisconsin is not easy either, I've ridden the course. Adding to that the weight of my fairly slow business, along with the extremely uncomfortable new job opportunities that have arisen make the tac boy a wee tired and slightly hormonal.

Much has been happening on the job front as Tac's friend has helped him get a look from some executives over at Target. You know, that tiny little bulls eye logo company based here in Minnesota. JBones has been extremely kind in helping craft Tac's first ever resume. The opportunity is great, so the committment to get this done is even greater. Yet trying to place Paradise Painting and all that was put into this business in a corporate speak resume has been both frightening, because Tac's unsure if he can really make it in the white collar world, and hard because it requires much thought and pondering.

Though very thankful for this new direction in life, the timing is kinda tough. Mostly being that Tac works out more then he potty's right now. Tac does get encouragement though, the other day Sopinator just randomly blurted out, "Extra Credit!". Mama was wondering what she meant and inquired.

"Dad gets extra credit because he doing Ironman and making money for us"

Thanks Soap.

The good news is that the taper is not far away and finshing the resume will no be far behind.

More later about my Janus Fund Raiser/Spanish Wine Experience...ooo sounds kinda sexy. By the way if you would like to know who I'm sponsering this year at IMmoo just click on my link on the side bar under Janus Charity Challenge!

hey bro, thats not a fun place to be. Change is difficult and responsiblities often require superhuman effort to not sacrifice too much.

God has given you great capacity and has a plan for your life. Give over to him in this, with much preperation of your own, and your path will be wider and more bountiful than ever.

That's right - the taper's not far off......

change is good, but stressful. I'm feeling you! I'm just not so close to IM...not sure if that's a good thing - then could put it behind me and focus on work. You ran a business all these years; you can juggle all kinds of stuff at once...this is just a thing for the Taconite Boy!

I'm not hormonal. Just very tired.

Tri-Dummy said...

Tac: A good squall might help. Just let it out. It'll make you feel better.

Bigun's right. And. You can't have your business and not be a people person. You are the type of guy who will be successful at whatever you do.

Plus. God's on your side. Like Comm said.

And. Your family loves you and believes in you.

And. Dummy does, too. Love you, brother!

Taaappppppeeeeerrrrrrr. If Ironman is the icing on the cake, tapering must be the fork, plate, and bib.

I can't believe TriDummy forgot to mention ME!!!
I love you too! I and the rest of the club have total confidence in you!
You and T'mama are so easy and fun to be around. You elevate us. Always. We want to elevate you, too.
Take a deep breath, know you are ready. The day will just go by. You'll have a TON of us there in person on your big day. Wouldn't miss it.
Take care friend!
