Yes it is!

The Red Mill is a 4-story grist mill and historic site located along the south branch of the Raritan River in Clinton. It was built around 1810 as an industrial mill. It has served several roles, including a wool processing plant, a peach basket factory, and a textile mill. It is now a museum that is part of the Red Mill Museum Village.

I don't remember, been a while. I have no clue when it's gonna happen again. With the wife broke down, I'm working 7 days a week trying to keep the wolves at bay. I don't remember the last time the phone has blown up like it has been this spring. Thankfully everyone is being patient & understanding.

Pin, everyone is being patient and understanding because you’re being honest and you’ve earned your integrity. Stay true, you’ll be just fine.

Thank you.

My wife & I have different sayings for each other when we face tough times. I always tell her, "God didn't bring us this far to drop us on our heads now" But in her case, he did kinda.

When I get to looking at the whole workload at once & get overwhelmed, she asks me, "how do you eat an elephant, one bite at a time." She's been reminding me of that a lot lately.

Re: When Is The Last Time You Took Some Time Off?


This week, kind of have to because of underlying conditions. Technically time off, but does not feel like one because I have a hard time sleeping. Read plenty of advice from here from health professionals and didn't relax enough from breathing/meditating and baths... I tried. Guess one of the interviewed there was right that it's all in my head and it's become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
