    Since it was asked I figured I'd post and let everyone know what's been happenin.

    First, we're still in our summer home, which is really starting to get to me cuz I hate living in the boonies. My city has like 350,000 people in it, here there are 1200 just to show you the difference I'm facing. They keep pushing back our "come home" date, first it was the end of June, then the end of July, now it stands as the middle of August. Frankly I'm beginning to wonder if I'll ever get home.

    Second they tore down our house, that was tough. I just drove up the street and there was this big hole in the ground where my house, which as many of you know I've lived in my entire life until March 14th, used to be. I just stood there at the mouth of it staring in to that hole in the ground, unable to believe that was all that was left of the place I had grown up in. My house was a good home to us, and it didn't deserve to be torn down and sent off to rot in some landfill somewhere, but that's where it is now. And I know it doesn't sounds "manly" or anything but I still choke up a bit when I think about it.

    Thirdly money is starting to get tight, we have enough to live on from my Father's pension but since his stroke it seems like his intelligence level just keeps going down and down. He keeps keeping more money for himself and not giving my brother, who is the good money manager in our family, as much as he says he will.

    Finally I'm starting to feel the pyscological effects of it. It's hard for me to come out and say stuff like this because I've always been a "bury my feelings" type of a guy, but it's tough. I don't have many friends, but the ones I do have are down home too far away for me to reach since we don't have any money for gas, and even if we did it's still way too f'in high priced. My dad drives my brother and I nuts, the dog is annoying even my cat is starting to get annoying cuz we can't let him outside up here.

    And it just seems like we have horrible luck, the starter went on my van, so we got a new one it lasted just over the 30 days where we could return it and the new one went. At the time it was in the pharmacy parking lot so I asked the woman (B***h more like it) behind the counter if it was ok if we left it there and she said sure! So we had to spend $50 we couldn't afford to get a new starter. Then I go back down to get it and it's gone, turned out the B***h had had it towed the day after we left it there So that cost us $150 we couldn't afford. When my dad called and asked her she said "oh well it was blocking the service door" I felt like saying WELL WHY THE F**K DIDN'T YOU TELL ME THAT WHEN I WAS THERE? I COULDA PUSHED IT OUT OF THE WAY! Most of the people up here are ignorant, they're always staring at my brother and I. Just bad luck as if we didn't already have enough.

    Anyway, thanks for all your kind wishes. It really does make things more bearable to know that there is some goodness in the world.

    Hang in there. It's these tough times that make you a better person when the good times roll back around (and they will).

    That sounds tough. Are you too young to move out? How many years before you can do that? Can't be that long.

    And I'll be moving out ASAP when we get home, from now on if my life gets screwed over by someone in my family it'll be me.

    My grandfather also left NS when he was a mere lad of 14 to come to the US. He was tired of mucking the stalls on the family farm! Maybe he should have stolen the horse like PWP's grandpop did!!!! At least he would have had a ride instead of hitching his way down with just 15 dollars in his pocket!
