Mr. Wiedz: Rules, Rules, Rules

Here is the deal. Mrs.Wiedz and myself have had a few recent questions regarding my recent posts. Although I appreciate the concern, I would greatly appreciate it if questions and feedback be left alone. I recognize that this might sound strange, but I post with the intent that when I feel it is appropriate to put forward information, I will do so. What I post is quite personal, factual, real and can be difficult to discuss. This said, I have been enjoying posting. Anyhow, I appreciate your understanding.

So, how did the deposition go.........

Frankly, in a sick way, I kinda enjoyed it. All of the pompous lawyers sitting around a table, starring at you in the eye like your a bad person, simply trying to get in your head to make you feel sometype of guilt. Egging you on to make a statement that they can use against you in the future. Simply put, it did not work with me. See, these people need to realize that over the past four years, I have been through hell and back again. Only by the grace of God, did Mrs Wiedz, our family, and myself make it through. These attorneys try and create stress, to make me stumble..... Their stress is petty......

Real stress is trying to feed a family, not knowing where your next meal might come from, praying each night that the Lord would provide. Real stress is putting on a suit, in a 100 degree day, driving an old truck with no AC, 1/4 tank of gas, (cold calling) knocking on business doors in the hopes that they would speak to you about a potential job even though they have never seen you before, real stress is knowing that your wife loves you unconditionally, supports your every action, while her friends judge her, real stress is being so depressed you can't get out of bed the next day.

Deposition went well for one reason, knowing in my heart that no matter how hard they tried, they could not "break me". I am now a stronger husband, business man, friend, and leader than I ever was before. Yes is was painful and hard however it taught me priceless life lessons. In closing on this topic, it remains unclear what will happen when the dust settle's. We will know more by years end. Until then, I take peace in my favorite biblical verse:

"Focus your eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen, for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal"
2 Cor 4:18

On a lighter note, I had the opportunity to spend the weekend with Mrs. Wiedz and #5. It was great. We worked really hard, preparing for the grand opening of the Classical School of Wiedz. My weekend primarily focused around building some shelves, moving items where Mrs.Wiedz told me to put them, eating, drinking, and believe it or some pretty good sleep. I am recommending to the board of directors for the Classical School of Wiedz that we do this once a year. #3 slept and Grammie's from 8:30pm to 12:30pm the next day, #4 slept from 6:00pm to 7:00 am. They both made the comment that it is loud at home, go figure!!! I guess a few of us needed to catch up from the past year.

I look forward to the return of our children, they will be trickling in the next few days. I plan on getting out on the river this week. The weather is already beginning to turn and for some reason it seems especially beautiful to me on the water. The fish are starting to run the rivers, and I am about ready to fish for some Chinook. Additionally, duck football begins this next weekend, however I get to skip the first game for a wedding Greeeeaaaatttt......... Mega foul, anyhow, family first. Then off to Sun-river Resort or a family vacation. By then, we will be talking about thanksgiving. Hold your horses, let's slow down a little and take things one day at a time.

be safe,

Mr. Wiedz

Reason itself is fallible, and this fallibility must find place in our logic
