I miss Dave so bad, my heart is breaking, ripping apart. He's been gone six days and I don't know when we'll see him. We need to find a place to live, Dave's going to church tomorrow in WY and see if anyone can help find a place. Everywhere we go we always hear to ask people at church if they know who wants to rent out. I have to have faith it will be ok, that I can get through this. My dad fell off his trailer the other day, an ambulance got him and had to get 20 stitches in his head, I guess he fell really hard and pretty bad. I'm so worried that dad is going to pass away soon, he's so different since Robert passed, he looks so bad. If my dad goes, my mom will soon after. I hope this is a better year. BTW, Dave's new job is going great, he loves it, and half the crew are women, cool.

New Job

Dave got a new job driving trains in Wyoming. He'll be gone for a couple of weeks, it will be difficult. Dave is my best friend and the love of my life!!! We'll all move to WY, but keep our home in CO, we want to retire in this home, plus we got it cheap. It will be nice to have a paycheck again and not feel like we're starving. No money = major stress! Things will be better now, and being in WY will be an adventure.

All the jokes about in-laws are true, and I would never try to be friends with my sister-in-law if not for my husband. My parents drive me crazy, but the stuff my in-law family pull make me livid.

Goodbye 2008

This past year my brother learned he had cancer, stopped being able to walk and later died at 29 years old. My parents are very sick and now even worse. Dave lost his job and then got blackballed from being hired because he didn't get along with the boss' cousin, it's a good 'ol boy club here. We haven't been able to fix our fixer-upper house, and had to be on food stamps. We've also been told that we are thieves because we've had food stamps and people who pay taxes don't want to see their money go to 'people like us'. You know some people aren't lazy on welfare they really do need help. As far as I'm concerned 2008 can go to hell!
