    That's just it, travel was never - and really still isn't - routine for me! It was always either a lack of time or money, which is why I'm so surprised as to how much I have actually done! (and where!!)

    I never thought I would amount to much in life so pretty much doing anything is something I thought I'd never do. Never thought I would work for the Police. Never thought I would live in the boonies of Southern Maryland. Never thought I would live debt free since my 40's.

    Hire an unlicensed contractor. I didn't check until it was too late, trying to get a ceiling that was coming down replaced. Got a recommendation from someone I used before who is licensed and insured and assumed his peer would be also. Oops. Hopefully everything goes well today.

    I was so excited that my hygienist is permitted to polish teeth again, and my teeth were polished during my cleaning appointment yesterday! Whoever would have thought I could be excited by such a thing?

    but jeppy, what does “licensed” mean? Here it just means someone pays a business tax to the city. It does not address his competence.

    Or maybe you mean you need licensed electrician to perform work authorized only by a person approved to perform that work. you talk about ceiling work but I don’t know if you really need an electrician.

    I love stories of people who overcome fears to find their passion! Kudos, Tradd!

    Tradd, that’s a huge leap from where you started. I had no idea.

    I remember you telling us this and how your friend at the time was so supportive. How many years ago was that? You have made such strides ahead!
