We all have these weeks.
My allergies have been horrible all week, almost to the point of making me totally disfunctional. Being without health insurance, can not really go to the doctor (unemployed), but may have too anyway as it may of become a sinus infection and is moving into my lung, blah, I'll get through it.
Call my Dad Wednesday, it's his 75th birthday, a blessing we are on good terms.
He calls me back at 10:00PM, got a call from my daughter in law, my son was drunk and disorderly and the police were on the scene - they live 3 hours away, why my daughter-in-law called my parents rather than my wife or I is a matter of debate, no matter, this is a bad situation that is getting worse.
My son is not ready yet, we all know what joys may be yet to come. Great.
What is that smell, surprised I can smell anything at all. Oh - the motorcycle is dumping gas out the carbs, in the garage, sweet. Last year I replaced some failing o-rings. I did have to gas up at a small town station and I was highly suspect of the fuel quality, my fault for not leaving for the ride with a full tank of known quality fuel, it is what it is. I have to remove the side covers, lift the tank and manually shut off a fuel valve. I'll have to work on it later, darn it.
I'm trying to start my own business, 7 months and no luck finding a job, have a house payments and all the bells and whistles, $9.50 a hour is not going to cut it with two kids still in school.
And the walls, came tumbling down, I'm trying to hold them up....).
I got a letter in the mail today regarding the business. Seems some of my credit has issues, WTF, my wife and I speak frequently and she assures me there is nothing wrong, has for years.
Come to find out my son has his phone in my name, oh yeah, now I remember helping him out. His phone and cable - and he "occassionally" paid it late, really late, and guess whos credit he hurt.
Then I dig a little deeper, find my wife has been lying to to me for all this time and we are a "few" thousand in credit card debt.
There were a few other issues that came up with week, I have to look at it all and smile.
I'm dealing with it sober, and I know that sometimes it takes a lot of crap to grow a good garden.
This seasons should be especially good.......

Steve - It sucks you are going through such a rough spot. I hope things turn around.
You seem to have a decent attitude, which will help.
One positive...at least you can work on the motorcycle yourself. I'd be the guy looking though youtube videos and things like that (which I'm actually proud of, that I've come that far) or needing to find someone else to fix it for me. I envy that quality in you.
Good luck, and congrats on keeping the sobriety through all this crap. Hope your garden dries up soon.
Won't you look down upon me Jesus?
You've got to help me make a stand.
You've just got to see me through another day.
My body's aching and my time is at hand,
I won't make it any other way.

Thanks for the reply. It is a blessing that I can work on the motorcycle myself, you're right.
I've got enough 24's under my belt to know the bad times can get worse, but they are temporary, and throwing gas on a fire never seems to work out very well.
Thank you again
