Keep walking, and running

And running for miles


Ain't going back to Barton Hollow
Devil gonna follow me e'er I go
Won't do me no good washing in the river
Can't no preacher man save my soul
...
Miles and miles in my bare feet
Still can't lay me down to sleep
If I die before I wake
I know the Lord my soul won't take

So I was channel-surfing today, and I came across the Lilo & Stitch movie. And I am a sucker for that film, so of course I had to stop and watch it. By the time they got to Stitch being apprehended, I lost it. Tears. Tears everywhere.

And it got me to thinking. So much of life lately has been about darkness and sadness (and not without reason), and I don't think I've really appreciated the things I have lately.

This is my family. Is little, and broken. But still good. Yeah. Still good. )

Jay's in the hospital. [Details] If you two could stop by when you're free, I'd appreciate it.

My father is an even more manipulative, controlling bastard than I ever thought. Though I don't know why I'm surprised. Jay's going through Hell, and I can't do anything, and I just want to scream, or crawl into a bottle until I feel better. Which I can't, because you remember what happened last time I drank while on my pain meds.

In the hospital. Broken leg, two cracked ribs. Someone please come spring me.

The delivery was stolen, I'm so sorry. There were four of them, and they caught me by surprise. Italian, I think, if that helps.

Felt really accomplished last night, managed to make myself dinner and not fill the place with smoke. And then I just sat around and watched old movies most of the night, because seriously, y'all: fuck winter. I ain't going out if I don't have to.

New job seems to be working out pretty well. I don't have to choose between eating, keeping the heat on, or, god forbid, fixing the bike if it breaks. Thanks again for helping me out.

Doc finally said I don't have to wear the boot to walk anymore, which is nice. Only took five weeks. Damn thing itched something fierce. He did tell me to keep taking it easy for a few more weeks, though.

After I was done at the doctor's (he cleared me to ride my bike, too, I could have hugged him), I headed to the garage to tell Aaron I could be back on light duty for the next couple of weeks. Which is when he told me he's selling the place to a developer.

It's closing at the end of October. Now, Aaron's 64, been working on bikes for about 45 years, I don't begrudge him his retirement at all. But this does mean I need to find another job, and I really like this one.

Balls.

I know you have something like three jobs...any of 'em looking for more people? Even if I do find another full or part-time job, they won't pay me what Aaron did, and it's pretty much impossible to live on minimum wage.
