What A Day

      Today was a good day, until this afternoon. Melissa and I weren’t feeling great, but we were feeling well enough to get some things done around town. We went to my bank, Scotiabank, to inqure about the posibility of my setting up a home based computer business, which we got plenty of informaiton on and research that I need to do. Starting a business isn’t easy, but I knew that, and I don’t expect it to be easy, but I’m certainly willing to give it my all at some point in the near future. Anyhow, our supposed last stop was to visit the doctor that was supposed to remove Melissa’s Gall Bladder next Tuesday about the Gall Bladder attack she took last Thursday.
      Then it happened…she had another attack right there in his office. She mentioned she was having some pain in her side, but she’s had it for a few days now, and we know to expect it, since we’ve been told it’s due to her Gall Bladder. What happened next came as a shock. Her doctor told her to go immediately to the Leduc Hospital where she would be admitted overnight for emergency Gall Bladder removal surgery tomorrow. Long story short, that’s exactly what we did. Mom and I even brought her some things from home that she wanted, which included some essentials and some things to keep her occupied, since the person who hooks up the TV and phone had already left for the day. That made us quite upset, but there is a pay phone on the same floor she is on, and two TV rooms, which means she’s got that for tonight, but as for tomorrow, or however long she ends up staying, she’ll need a phone and TV in her room. Although, we did bring her some magazines, and a crossword puzzle book. She has a novel to read, but we forgot it at home. The whole family will be visiting her tomorrow, myself likely for the better part of the day. She’s able to make collect calls, so she can phone home to NS to talk to her family, and she knows she can call us here at home in Leduc, day or night.
        She has family and friends in Alberta and Nova Scotia supporting her and loving her, and now we can only wait until we see what tomorrow brings.

    I commend you on your entrepeneurial spirit. There is no better way to go than owning your own business. As you have discovered, however that takes capital to get started. I work with a group of people on an internet business development project, which essentially allows interested people to set up shop for themselves (but definitely not by themselves) for about the cost of a good pair of shoes.
    I am curious as to the type of home based computer business you are interested in setting up, because our model seems to fit quite nicely in conjunction to a lot of computer business, due to it\’s compatability.
    I would love to talk more and see if there is any way we can help you reach your goals of ownership, and ultimately control over your own future thrugh that ownership.
