1 step forward, 2 steps back...

Jason finally got his truck functional. He has finished the interior for the most part, and he and our brother in law, Matt, installed his new L.E.D. tail lights and tag light this past weekend. He was taking it to be inspected this evening at this little back roads inspection station that was down a very unkept dirt road when he hit a huge pot hole. Since his truck is lowered, this is the damage it incurred.When he got out to see the damage, his door closed, locking him out (the door handles are shaved, and the door has to be opened with the key) with it still running. He cut his forearm all up trying to get back in. When he got back in, he had to come back without getting it inspected...since you can probably tell, it wouldn't be passed.

My poor hubby, he has worked so hard on the truck. This is something he can fix, since he knows how to weld, it's just a lot more work that he wasn't planning on having to do. He's just started going back to college (which I'm so proud of him for), but it's every other weekend...usually. The first two weekends, he has to go both (last weekend and this weekend)...so by Sunday, he will have been going 12 days without a day off. He's exhausted, discouraged, and aggravated.

Thank goodness we are going on our anniversary trip next week...he needs the break. I think I need to go give him a back rub.

oh my goodness!

I was so worried when Ash said he came in all beat up and he might have broken his ankle. I'm so glad he's on the mend.

At least everything is fixable --- agrivating I'm sure, but it can be fixed!

Love you!

Oh I'm so sorry. He's worked so hard on it. I know it's discouraging, but I think his talk with Daddy last night helped a little?! They did a lot of laughing.
I know you're looking forward to your get-away! Hope we can see you next week.
Love you,

Oh, I'm so sorry that happened! I hope he is on the mend (and his truck, too!).

I also just read your post before that one - what a funny joke! I needed that tonight.

Have a wonderful getaway.

is he really discouraged... or does he see this as another challenge on his much loved project?
(even though he didn't get it inspected)
