I’ve been having a bit of a rough month. My ex-wife and I just went through a messy divorce and the economy has resulted in me having to receive a pay cut at work, which isn’t great now that alimony is in the mix. It’s all had me a bit down in the dumps, even though I’m a fairly optimistic person generally.
Recently, I really had the straw that broke the camel’s back. My best friend got a new job in Ohio, and even though I’m happy for him, it’s no fun knowing that my friend’s moving away at a time like this. It made me feel like busting out the bulk Mercury Optimax oil I purchased a while back, fixing up my boat, and hitting the open water.
