Homemade bank

Homemade bank.

We’ve never owned an ATM card.

Ever.

We (meaning mostly me) don’t carry cash.

We might keep $20-50 in a drawer for cash tips for whatever.

This is a challenge because sometimes it’s nice to have a little cash for whatever.

Created a small “home bank”.

Now, when i go to Kuwait, i can grab a fifty and stuff it in the wallet “just in case”.

Yes, i traveled to Kuwait recently with zero cash.

If we want to give, as a thank you gesture, a three-person landscape crew $20 each for lunch or dinner, there’s no longer the need to borrow $60 from our Son.

He also doesn’t use cash, but generally has a couple twenties.

Son, you know i’m doing this for mom and that’s the insight…be willing to create a process that doesn’t benefit you but it’s a process you own and manage.

Mom runs a tight, and fun, ship

This is a special flower in our Family.

Mom runs a tight, and fun, ship.

Son, you (and i) can easily say we got the Best Mom (Wife) in the World because of one simple fact…

It’s true.

Life is not a dress rehearsal, live like you mean it.

It still makes me smile when i think about how the fifth big choice, HQ (Home life), didn’t come about initially. And when it did, the fifth box became the big box housing the other four. it was there all the time.

Personal organization vision addendum

bedroom remodel
The 34-year process of sleeping on a king-size water bed is making way for a leaner, lighter option. The crew cut around the bed because it was impossible to move until drained.

Personal organization vision addendum. Any furniture item we replace in our home should be light enough for older adults to safely move from one location to another.

Over-focusing is Disney’s secret sauce

Disney character note card
Three unique Disney note cards went to Tony’s crew.
Disney note card
This Walt Disney World note card is 40 years old. Technically, this is antique art.
disney Mickey Mouse note card
This note card is only one year old.
bedroom renovation
Bedroom and bathroom renovation.

Over-focusing is Disney’s secret sauce.

In my personal life, i have learned from 30+ years at Disney to over-focus on the same things i used to under-focus on or ignore.

It would have been easier to write one note card, put all the money in that one card and ask Tony (the owner) to distribute it equally amongst the four of them.
