BACK TO WORK!

Finally after being on disability since 2012 it looks like Iíll be getting the best job of my life. Been working doing construction since spring killing myself for like 2 bucks an hour starving as usual . I had an interview yesterday and it looks like I will be doing commercial refrigeration , chiller , electrical and plumbing for a local food processor. The job fits like a glove for me , the work is cake after killing myself for months and the money ( still have to negotiate that ) looks like more than Iíll know what to do with . I never expected this to just fall in my lap like it did but I have been looking for this for a looooong time . Totally still pinching myself to make sure I am not dreaming , a lot of hard work and prayers went into this day and it looks like it finally paid off.

Yeah the Broncos will love me for it LOL. Gonna be long hours but maintenance Forman is worth it. I feel really good about it and the company offers excellent benefits along with 401K so I will be able to do the things I could only dream of before . I definitely paid my dues to get there . You guys were one of the first to know as through all the BS yíall had my back for emotional support. I actually am thinking of investing my money in a business for the future that the GF ( soon to be wife now ) can manage while I am working . I have starved for so long I know squandering the money gets me nowhere already. I am thinking a southern style restaurant would be my choice as I do refrigeration and I am working for a food supply so profit with low overhead would be easy. Itís like winning the lottery to have this opportunity and I plan on making the best of it. Thanks for the good will guys !

Did both already LOL this time around I’ll be a little smarter . Funny thing is now pot is legal in illinois and I can’t smoke . Not sure they drop yet but I sure won’t take chances . Back in the day ( 1991 ) the carpenters local 1 got me but the job sucked anyhow , they did me a favor.

Congrats, hope it is a good job for you.

Have I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?
