    i was on my first day of vacation in july when my employee called and left a message with his sad little something is wrong voice so i caled him back and he tells me that he had no idea that this was going to happen but his soon to be in-laws bought him a lco and he would be starting it up next monday. he would be happy to do his lawns and then help me out when he is finished his week. told him to drop off uniforms and good luck. since then it has rained almost every day, everything i own, personal or business is broken or not running right, my wife hates me , my kids have forgotten me and there is still at least another month to go. needless to say i am praying for winter.

    Don't feel bad, my car died. The gearbox on my w/b broke and I ain't had time to fix it. The gate on my trailer dropped going down the road this morning. Picked my daughter up from school w/ the truck & trailer and coming to a stop the rear brake line blew! Had to use the emergency brake to help whoa it down. I then finished the rest of the day driving slow till I got home. It's been raining here the last 3 days and finally dried up today, but I didn't get 'em all done. Tomorrow's 9/11 so I'll be busy w/ memorial services. Have to work the regular job Sunday(18 hrs) & Monday(24hrs) so by Tuesday I'll be able to get to fixing things. Then again, something else might break by then. :realmad:

    Keep your chin up. Once you hit bottom, the only way to go is up. I know its hard, I've been there. Just try to stay positve.

    When you reach the end of your rope - tie a knot and hang on!
