As for me, I have busy. Its that simple. We are actively remodeling our entire house. The real estate market here is insane and, for once, I may get a break. I can probably make a couple hundred grand. I intend to sell it and use the money for new toys in Alaska. I have set a date of June 2018 for our return. That means I will have been away for 6 years. Besides remodeling the house, I am beyond working full time. Our firm is finally starting to make some real money. Yesterday, I paid off the last credit card. Now, other than the mortgages, for the first time in my adult life, I am debt free. Now I can start saving for Alaska. We will probably buy land and build the house as we want it. I just need to make it to the end of this year. Our civil caseload is probably worth about $7,000,000 right now and we just need to grab that money. I'm tired of criminal defense and 80 hours a week. Im lucky enough to spend most of my time on cannabis compliance now but I can't wait to do just that and help manage www.thelawfirm.com. This is our nationwide personal injury and mass tort law firm. All in all, we are doing well. I miss Alaska but, for the first time, I see a clear path to return.
I do feel guilty for letting this go. I will do better. I would love for the kids to see their whole lives.
