I want this new gig to work out so that my wife can leave her job and focus on getting her back better...she has major issues due to cracking two vertebrae a couple years before we met. We're hoping she can leave work for good on Dec. 18...and I've been busting my narfing ASS to make this happen. Got a truck, working on a ladder rack, tool box, and cover for it, at which point I'm sub-contracting as a satellite dish installer.
Cross yer fingers, hold yer breath, and pray I can make it rain, boys. That's what I want for Christmas. That, and pray she understands how busy I'm gonna be...
Hey, guys! I'm Nick. I've been reading AoM for a few years now, and I'm very excited to be diving into the community. I'm heading into my freshman year of college this fall, and if the good Lord is willing and the Creek don't rise, I'll be pursing a Civil Engineering degree. I hope to enjoy some great discussion with you guys and improve as a young man. See More
