Hey all, I want to express my apologies to all the members here, especially my fellow staff members. I feel as tho I have as of lately been letting you guys down pretty bad. I have not been on here performing my duties as much as I should be. With that being said I will give you guys an update as to what is going on with me that is taking most of my time.
First and foremost I have recently started a new job working for Freightliner/DTNA corporation. I work a LOT of hours there, and I work night shifts so I'm generally not getting back home until about 1 or 2 AM. I work on average 10-12 hours a day. While the pay is nice, my personal time is taking a huge hit because of it.
Secondly, as most of you may remember, 2 years ago, I was involved in a pretty big court ordeal in regards to custody of my son (whom I have full time right now). Well, court has re-surfaced, and now I'm in constant contact with my attorney and making many visits to KY in preparation for the next court date (which is the final court date and could possibly be the same court date my sons mom is tossed in jail or prison). Now while having my son full time is the biggest and best blessing I could ever ask for, he does take the remainder of my time that I have (as he is 2 now and all parents know what that is like lol).
Also, some of you may know, I no longer have my Evo. Due to my last job, I did not have the finances to keep the evo anymore, so I got rid of it and got a truck (95 2500 Ram, 12v cummins diesel). Things were pretty bad and were pretty rough, but I was squeaking by. Then I started having slight issues with my truck, then it just stopped. Well I was on my way to work when it stopped. Went to work and when I came back to my truck right after my shift (10 miles from my shop), my truck was gone, and nobody knows where it's at. I've called the Police, and the State Police, EVERY towing company around my area, and nobody has seen, or grabbed it. So now, I'm officially without a vehicle AGAIN, and this makes the 2nd vehicle of mine that has been stolen. So that adds to the list of issues going on.
Now with all of that being said, I'm not making excuses for my lack of ability to get on, it is my responsibility to make sure I uphold to the same standards that are put forth onto the staff members here, so I will do just that. Again I am sorry for my neglect in that aspect, and from now on I will make a good effort to be on here at the minimum of once a week. I may not be posting, but I will definitely be moderating, answering pm's and anything else that needs my attention. If I have nothing that needs addressed when I get on, then I will probably do a little posting as well.
Thanks for understanding, and I look forward to seeing this place thrive again as it once did.
