Bye, bye 2016! [Dec. 31st, 2016|01:20 pm]

I thought I would do a year in review post.
All in all I am not sorry to see 2016 end. It had more downs and ups.
The downs:
Losing too many friends and family to death this year.
Losing my power on April 11th due to lack of payment. This was due to confusion on who was paying the bill.
Losing my truck on May 11th, because I couldn't make the payments. note that I am not angry at the finance company. They did what they were obligated to do, and they went far above the call of duty to try to keep the truck with me.
No employment prospects for most of the year. Any job interviews I went on got no further than that.
My ex-boss getting shot at his own house, by state police, in a mistaken identity incident.
Colucci Lumber burning to the ground.

The ups:
Some very nice people not only supplied me with solar panels, they bought me a 4.2Kw generator. These same people have given me money for gas and have taken me to the supermarket.
My ex-boss recovering fully from his wounds.
There was no loss of life or serious injury during the Colucci fire, and no homes were touched by the fire.
My ex-boss buying me a 10K BTU kero heater and supplying me with kero so far this winter.
UPS hiring me for the lead up to Christmas as a "Driver's Helper". This ended on 12/23/16. There is a possibility that they may hire me full time.
The same ex-boss selling me is car for $5.00, as previously noted, so I have a set of wheels so I can apply for jobs.
Last, but by no means least, the many friends that have supported me, in different ways, in the past 2 and a half years.

Here is hoping that 2017 is a much better year, not only for me, but for every one.
