Thirsty Thursday and My Top Ten

Well my friends today is a sad day in my world.  We have made up our mind to move out.  We will store our stuff and remain with friends or relatives until our house is ready.  Never thought it would come to this.  My heart is breaking and I feel very alone.  I have  a wife and two children and two dogs and two cats and wait a dang minute shouldn't I have two wives as well?  Nevertheless I must pick up and roll on down the road.

In case you are new we are in the process of buying a house and our landlord decided he didn't want to wait and rented the house out from under us.  We have rented from him for 6 years and have been great tenants but....damn landlords anyways.  So time is up and sure I could force him to evict us but in the end my conscious and my heart would nag me.  We all grow up with the words in our heads that ''2 wrongs don't make a right."  As much as I would like to destroy the house what would I gain?  Nothing.
So from this post on you shall never hear of this again.

Now for the good stuff.  My beer of choice this week is Leinenkugels Sunset Wheat (shocker)
I live in a fairly small town and getting many choices of beer is difficult at best so I stick with what I know.
I also picked up a 6 of the 1888 Bock and I believe I have singlehandledly removed the brand from this town.  Now I have none left.  I did share 4 of the 12 so 8 is my magic number for the night and I am pleasantly numb.  I still have a little Jack in the freeze and some home brew in the fridge but I think I'm good for tonight.  Just enjoying the numbness for a bit.  I see how those folks get hooked on the heroin and what not.  Your world turns South and someone says hit this it'll make it better and you do, and it does.
I don't have any experience in the drug world other than a few mega tons of beer but in the end it all works temporarily.  But I quit early knowing full well of the pain it would bring in the morning.

My top ten this week may not even make it to ten and I apologize because...... well just because.

#1  Holiday weekend    (too bad I have to spend it moving)
#2  Moving out of the house   (too bad it's a holiday weekend)
#3  Girls varsity soccer is headed for districts    (great season so far)
#4  Tomorrow is Baby Joe Joe's last day of high school    (holy shit where did time go and why is he
       spending all of my money)
#5  Have decided to hold Kaitlin back in school for the next 5 years   (duh I can't afford two college
       educations at once)
# 6  I can't believe I have made it to # 6     (yep my week has been a shitty one)
#7  I received a copy of the bids for the septic $12K-$14K  ( one bid calls for 600 cubic yards of dirt)
#8  This may be my last top ten for awhile   (thirsty Thursday is always there I just might not share it)
#9  Welcome Bouncin' Barb I am very glad to have you as a friend.  (bear with me)
#10  Last but not least I may have to take a reprieve from blog land due to the fact that I have no idea where
        I am living come next Thursday so don't forget me I will be back someday just don't know when.

To all my friend, family and stalkers,
It has been a real pleasure writing here and enjoying yours as well.  I never would have thought I would look forward to running home to sit in front of the computer.  You are all very precious to me.
I know that's sappy but hey screw it.....it's true!

And with my good timing my commenter was broke for awhile so no comments from me.  I think others had the same problem.  I'll be back God willing and in the mean time just be yourself so I know where to look when I come back. 
Goodbye for now friends!!


I'm only beautiful when your drunk....c'mon drink up!!

ps my blogger is still broke and I can't even follow anyone.  Sorry Barb I'll get there!


  1. Wow that is a lot of stuff going on and such a wide range of happy and pissed off all at once.

  2. Aw Dude, I'm sorry things are looking so glum right now. Know it always gets better eventually. We will be here when you get back, and maybe Blogger will get it's shit back together meantime.

  3. Will be thinking of you, the wife and kids during this crappy time. Someday (not in the very near future) you look back on this and laugh. If it makes you feel better, I can drive by and throw non-returnable bottles and cans in your old landlords yard every now and then just to trash it up. Let me know.

  4. Thanks so much for the welcome. Sorry the timing is bad for you. I know that feeling for sure. Been under stress myself. Thank God for Bloggers!! Hope things work out. You know where to find me if you want a laugh!!

  5. Landlord's a douche.
    But, that's probably an insult to douches.
