    I am embarrassed with my previous post. I am embarrassed because I come off as a whiny bitch who is not in control of every decision I make. That was a really bad day for me and I needed a place to vent and I view this place as a haven for all expressions. Fact is I put myself in this position and I will map my way out. Currently creating the foundation of my plan to get out of this position and the first part was some honest talks, I feel like they went well. Have always been fairly responsible financially in terms of spending my money but TB's post made me have a desire for a plan. I like the idea of a plan.

    I don't feel sorry for myself nor do I feel defeated. Life is hard but you have to keep getting up after you fall down, no matter what. Truthfully, probably the best thing to happen to me, I have learned a lot of lessons.

    I dont think your previous post was embarrassing at all.
    I dont think you came off as a whiny bitch at all.
    Your initial post was about reality not the feels.
    While it had something to do with how you feel it was not about how you feel.
    That previous post that you think was embarrassing is actually super empowering.

    BDKane, I have faith in you to rebirth yourself in this. Best of everything, brother. My wife and I went on Dave Ramsey's plan of debt attack 18 months ago. We knocked 15K off of 30K in debt, paid off our car, and figure to eliminate the 15K by May of 2019, leaving only the mortgage, which we refi'd eight months ago. We were underwater, but we made tough choices. In the end, it was worth all of it. Bills no longer concern us, as we own them, not the other way around. We already paid our hospital fees for the baby due May 11, and we still have an emergency fund to support her being out of work for 3 months+. It feels good, or at least better than before we addressed our fiscal infirmity. I pray you garner a similar satisfaction. You are a good son. That is a rare thing.

    On an unrelated note, wife went into pre-term labor last night at 6PM. Not Braxton-Hicks either, actual contractions ... got home again at 3AM and I'm teaching today on batteries. I can't down enough coffee. We are 32 days early so we'd prefer the boy waits at least until we hit April 29 to make it less of a concern, but we shall see. Wife's on bed rest and some good drugs, but please pray or what-you-do, fellas. A future Dodger fan and DSP poster awaits us. I hope he is as attractive as his mother but fights like his old man (dirty, thus victoriously) ...

    No. We have four year-old and two year-old daughters, and from here on out, we have to play zone defense, I guess. Either that, or the box-and-one ...

    Anyway, thanks.

    so after a saturday night w a couple of real micks from Ireland and a few bottles of whisky i was left w sunday
    decide to head out to the beach w my girl and we hit costco for supplies
    as we wonder a little in the store i'm standing at this bunch of clothes w $5 t shirts and whatever but i'm struck for a second by this little long haired dude digging for his size next to me
    suddenly it occurs to me i know this guy and i'm trying to figure out where it is i know him from
    then it hits me i used to see this guy rudy sarzo on the sunset strip playing w the early quiet riot and randy rhodes
    played w ozzy and whitesnake and i guess whoever else but he absolutely had a prolific career in music
    i don't think anyone else knew it was him and i didn't say a word to him although in retrospect i wish i had
    was curious to know how his life has gone and by all accounts he is a gracious and humble human being
    guess i might have thought i still smelled like jamesons idk
    kind of a trip when you think of all the things he's seen and had laid at his feet that he'd find himself digging through costco tshirts next to me lol

    Sarzo is a good bassist. He's respected outside of the rock world, too. I know some snobs in music, and they all liked his work post QR in a group called Sun King. They never released any albums but they gigged and were pretty good as I recall.

    Costco tee shirt bin ... I'm impressed...

    you know my first thought was look at this funky dude getting in the way of me and my $5 tshirt lol
    i looked him up and his net says he's around $16mil that makes sense for his career
    he doesn't need to shop like that and neither do i tbh but i respect the hell out of that
    he's been married to his wife for 27 years and seems to be one of the good guys
    he left ozzy after rhoads died because he couldn't stand osbourne being fucked up all the time
    didn't know that he offered to do tours or whatever until they found a new bassist but that was gracious
    and i guess ozzy punched him in the face at the US festival...what a dick

    costco does have some pretty decent clothing when you need something to cover your nakedness and dont want to deal with whatever fashion fad is dominating the menswear lane of your favorite stores.
