Wishing you every good thing

As we wade into a new year I have a lot of wishes.  I would like to finally retire from the sign business.  Maybe move to a different local.  Start back at the gym.  When you are making money you buy stuff.  Many of us never really think that someday we will have to get rid of most, if not all of it.  Our cabin at Callaway Gardens has been wonderful.  A place we can go to relax.  But when we go there we end up working our tails off cleaning and fixing so that the renters can enjoy it.  We don’t have to sell it, but it is just a complication we don’t need at this stage in our lives.  Twenty years ago we bought the 6,000 sq. ft. building that houses SignPrinters.  When we had 9 employees we used almost all of it.  Now we can run the company in 1/4 the space.  Just a complication.  Finally our big house.  Who needs a 3,000 sq. ft. house?  Five acres of grounds to keep and heating and cooling the house is time consuming and expensive.  We could fit nicely in a house half the size.  But when we make these purchases we rarely think about getting rid of them, and that is something a few years has brought into focus for me.
