what a week brothers. friday (a week from yesterday) i get a call telling e i'm getting demoted back into my old position.
two days ago, i get a call that my brother who narrow escaped jail a few months ago, decided to steal my moms car and crashed it AGAIN. now he will be in jail for probably a year. and then today, my fiance gets let go from our place of work (we work for the same company, it's how we met).

well, at least i still have a job, and she will land on her feet. she has a great resume. worst comes to worst, we get married in less than three months and we will probably have enough to pay the bills from that, with her being Italian. also good thing i picked up a bunch of new tobaccos to try to keep my need for TAD down a bit Very Happy 

so i won't be buying the lathe yet, but at least we are safe and healthy! chin up!

Rev...

I preach tomorrow on keeping first things first essentially. It is easier to preach than to do.

I'll keep you and the family in the prayers... Tom

Not great news Jeb. But at least you and your lady are tight, so you got that going for you.

Better days ahead brother.


Cheers,

RR

That's a miserable and bumpy road you're on. It may be hard to realize now but you'll see that the road will carry you to better times if you can hold it between the ditches and don't let it wreck your self confidence. You seem to be the type of man that will set a goal and then give whatever it takes to achieve it. Take inventory of your assets, develop a plan, and work the plan. Not always easy but you'll be stronger and have more self confidence at the end of this trial. There's no doubt in my mind that you will accomplish whatever you set out to accomplish. For you failure is not an option.

Thank you all for the kind words. Sounds weird but I do feel like I have a big family here. NF that support means a lot to me. This community is better than any other I've been part of. Really, thank you for the support.

I'm gonna put that one in MY pocket, too, if that's okay.

SDJ, it seems the sh!tstorms have upgraded to laser-guided accuracy.   Layer up on ponchos, my friend.   I'd lend you mine, but they're all in use at the moment, as well.  Neutral

Keep us updated, feel free to vent, and use BoB as a distraction.   I love you (...why do you think I spend so much time here...)  

Cool

Sir,

Find comfort in those you love, strength in yourself, and enjoy the new opportunities that you will find presented to you with time.

Your posts are intelligent and relevant. You obviously have a good mind about you. It will serve you well.

Cheers!
