Yesterday was Earth Day and it was a heck of a day, from waking up feeling overwhelmed, angry and depressed to owning a new dog and back out of the Blues & Arts.

Today I have decided that it's time to re-start keeping my journal. I've never been able to write a journal and stick to it, of course I could say that about may things. Now I think is the time to change all of that and focus on what I am committed: My Health, My Marriage, My Business, Our Life.

Part of that commitment will be this journal. The thought is, if I can stick with the journal, I will stick with the other fore mentioned commitments.

Today started the way I hope may future days start; slowly. This morning we got up and walked a couple miles with our new puppy Kai, watched the morning news and had breakfast. It gave us time to to talk about what we needed to do for the day, which also helps to reduce stress.

I called Gary Dilley this morning to let him know that Rachel and I can not continue to produce the Blues & Arts as co-promoters. Rachel and I have both come to the conclusion that it is too much for us to do, when we have our own business we need to focus on right now.

Where are John & Rachel?

Moving to a new home - Healthy, Happy, & Glad!

John & I just moved to a new house in San Felipe and we love it. We feel with the business growing we need to be able to move around with out having a house payment, just rent where we want to stay and experience the area. So we are staying in San Felipe until June then to Ensenada for about 4 months. In Nov we will be back for the Home Expo for a month or two then perhaps to La Paz for 4 months - La Paz is the next addition to the Guide.
