I Got The Blah's......

I took Lindsey and dropped her off at church this morning. She's leaving on a 9-day mission trip to Caspar, Wyoming. It's part of a youth mission trip through World Changers. Church groups and students from all over the country meet at all kinds of different locals across the country and do hands-on work that makes a difference in people's lives. Lindsey's group is going to be doing actual home improvement work, like painting, cleaning yards, fixing roofs, laying floors, etc. Things that actually make a difference in people's lives. It was tough dropping her off, though. My baby, gone half-way across the country for 9 days!

Lately I've been in a mood where I just don't really feel like journaling right now. I dunno why. I think it's still the super tired thing. I got all these things hanging over my head, and I've got my head planted deeply in the sand, like an ostrich, hiding from them all. Actually, it's just two things, but they are huge! Back taxes, and the eventual divorce.

The back taxes because they are such a huge amount of money we owe, I don't know how I'm ever going to pay it off. I don't think bankruptcy will take care of tax debt, but to find out takes money to pay someone to look at my tax situation and advise me! Argh!

And the divorce? Sheesh... we're as "divorced" as we're gonna get without the legal paper, but again, when I file, it will open up all sorts of issues and arguments which I just don't want to talk about right now. Yes, they are mainly money issues, but still, money issues are important because I need money to live on and raise my kids on. So does my x-wife. See? Argh... I just wish someone would drop about $50K in my lap. That would just about solve everything, pay off all outstanding debts, and leave me on my feet just fine.

Not that I'm broke or poor.... far from it, but it's just frustrating having these things hanging over my head. And DON'T tell me "just go get it done", or I'll smack you. Just because. LOL...

Unless you got $50K you want to part with. Then let's do lunch.

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

My oldest daughter, Emily, broke up with her boyfriend yesterday. To be honest, I saw it coming, I just wasn't sure when it would happen. She's much too bright and has much to much on the ball to be tied down this young. I'm happy she's gone out partying a bit with friends. She's been so responsible all her young life, I'm happy to see her go out and blow off a little bit of steam. The only problem is, the boy isn't taking it too well, and he's doing the psycho thing just a tad. I say give him a few days, and he'll get over it, but if not, I'll have a talk with him, and I'm sure he'll get the point.

My dad had his hip replacement surgery last week, and is recovering just great. He's due home from therapy this Saturday.

July 4th weekend was sort of a blur. I went to my brother Glenn's house and watched their fireworks show and talked. It was a nice visit. He bought himself a 50" wide-screen HDTV, and it rocks! I think his house is gonna be Kings Central come this fall.
