I did the same in my audi in the same storm, In danbury

in my case it was in Long Island City, Queens just a 1 block away from the office. A truck got stuck in the intersection and I had to stop losing all forward momentum. Once the truck got pushed out of the way a bunch of people helped me push my car and get it moving again. The rear wheels were on the ground made me wish VW made an AWD TDI available here.

After 2 of the longest days of my life. Fighting with my wife sister and son. The Kansas trip is cancelled. I am unemployed again. I did not take the job.

1 My sister started stirring up our fighting past.
2 My wife was horribly depressed we were leaving.
3 The money was less then expected, but still more then I ever made in ultrasound.
4. The vacation time was one week a year. I could not do it.

I won't lie. I am depressed. My son is too. But hopefully things will improve. And the new year will bring new opportunities.

we were financially floundering for years with deadend job after deadend job and nearly hit rock bottom.
stuff seemed to fall into place at one point to push towards a path of the job I have now. Been doing this now for going on 13 years this coming February and doing better and better every year.

5- she calls me to say I can't bring Ben. Obviously she missed the message that we are not coming.

I won't lie. I am less then happy right now. I think tomorrow is a ride day. I have not been on my bike in weeks. I have been so busy with this Kansas thing. A day ride might be in order. Anyone have plans tomorrow?
