Flip Flop Kerry Strikes Again

John Kerry: never tells the same story twice.

Went to work today for nine hours. I don't really care though because today we dug a hole and then called it a day. We took a 1.5 hour break (a half hour of which is paid) for lunch and quit working all together at about two. Then we went up to the lodge and drank water and sat around till 4.

I ordered my tire. Its gonna cost me a nice $139. I had a close call today when I found a drill bit in another tire. Luckily, it had only dug into the tread and did not puncture the tire. The good thing is that the tire with the nail in it is out of my bed.

Along with replacing my tire, I'm also gonna have to change my oil this weekend which means I'm gonna have to fork out some more money for oil and a filter. Its a good thing that I do it myself and don't hire somebody to do something so easy...Jenny Horgan. It also need to be washed since I haven't touched it since I used it to push the work truck out of the mud.

Last exam tomorrow. No more school. Vacation in 11 days.

Pres. Ronald Reagan has died at the age of 93. This country has indeed lost a great man today. Reagan was one of the best leaders that this country has ever known. He was part of a dying breed that enters politics not for money or social gain but to make a difference. He took on the job of president, stuck to his principles and did the best he could. Most of us cannot even come close to appreciating what he did for this country.

Samsonite...we were way off

Horgan and I went swimming yesterday at her pool. It was freezing but her pool and hot tub are sweet.

I got a nail in my tire so I'm gonna have to replace it for the small price of $130. I can't just get it patched because the nail is in the side wall and its against regulations to patch the side wall of a tire. So I'm gonna have to wait till I have the funds to purchase one. It doesn't help that my tires are Goodyear Wrangler all-terrain tires. Apparently huge tires with aggressive tread cost more to make or something.

Speaking of off road tires. My dad was talking about some place in Indiana where you can pay 7 bucks to do whatever you want on this guy's land. Apparenty, there's offroad trail all over the place that are pretty challenging. So I might try to get out there some weekend and try to trash my truck.

We have a soccer game on Sunday at 3. Which is good cuz I have to work until 10. That'll give me time to sleep.

School's almost done. I have two more regular classes to go to and then two exams next week. After that I'll be workin like crazy to be able to afford my truck that I'm determined to break and school next year. Plus if I find a place to live, other than where I'm at now, I'll need money for that. I have to start full time work soon because I'm leaving for South Carolina on the 19th and I'm gonna need money for my insurance this month. I'm screwed. Maybe my tax refund will come because it is my money and the government just seems to be holding on to it for awhile. So if they could go ahead and give me my money back...that'd be great.
