Stuck. Texas.

So I might as well make the best of it eh? But hey, see one of these little beauties on the street on an almost regular basis, yeah I can definitely get used to that. The funny thing, they wave to me. Talk about a little bit of validation. Well it's about time.

I'm still not sure when I'll get little Astrid back, but she's in good hands. Mark jumped in saying he'd help. Now we've just got to get Rebecca's car running and in mine goes. Then it's signing away my savings to Texas plates and getting her inspected. Oh Texas, you and your inspections and your fees.

11 hours.

That's how much I slept last night. It was definitely needed. I feel so much better today. Yesterday was one of the busiest/craziest service days at work ever. I got home made chocolate chip peanut butter chip cookies, watched maybe 45 minutes of TV and crashed at 8:00.

We moved to the other building at work this week. The one I'm in now is sooo much nicer than the other one. We've got windows all over with sunshine pouring in. It's just Ali's team of ASA's and Cleveland's pod. It's going to be really nice. The kitchen over here is's just so wonderful.

It looks like today is going to be a much better day than yesterday. More like a typical work day. Not sure what I'll do this evening. Maybe I'll finally get some pictures uploaded. Relaxing TV and a BSG marathon maybe? :)

Another Post Secret.

I hate to think it could be someone I know...surely it's not.


I know you don't read this...maybe you will someday...but I love you and miss you. Come home safe. We'll go to our bar in the middle of nowhere in my Camaro and have a Corona, just like when I dropped you off at the airport last time. Be so careful. I don't know what I'd do if I never saw you again.

Post Secret entry to think about.
Check it out:
Some of them are very interesting.
Sometimes I wonder if some of them are from people I know...
...probably not.
Maybe I should send something in...

So sad.

My friend wrote this and it just breaks my heart:

2 times so far I went to court and so far both times have been nothing but BS. I know have a 3rd court date in Nebraska.....all to discuss where this court should be held. So I am going to need at least a 4th court date.

I just want to see my son. I'm not asking for much. I'm not taking my son away from his mother. I just want him to have a fair chance to get to know his father.

If you know me, or know both me and Crystal and have seen me take care of my baby or have been around me enough then you can help out.

What I need is this:

I need you to write a paragraph or two or three about what you witnesses when I was taking care of Canton. I need you to characterize me as to weather or not you think I am a fit father to take care of a 16 month old boy.

This is a serious request. I need you to take that letter to your bank or get a hold of me and i'll take you to mine and get it Notarized (that just means they look at your license or ID and verify its actually you signing the letter.

Also, put your address and phone on the letters if you would.

Please don't slack on this. I need these within a week or 10 days at the most.

I'm not asking anyone to lie.

Its not fair for my boy to go without me. Its been over 3 months since I've seen him or heard him. I have not even seen him walk before but I bet he is walking and running all over the place now. I have not heard him talk before but I bet he can say words now.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't slack on this. I need your help. All I am asking is that I get to see him once in a while.

So here I am trying to write this thing in any downtime at work I have because he is the most responsible guy I know who got a little bit of bad luck.
