No Chains On The Truck, No Snowboarding Today

Today it’s storming pretty bad here in Sonoma County. My boyfriend and I were planning on going up to Tahoe to go on a snowboarding adventure. But since it’s raining we decided it be best not to go up to the mountains without any chains on his truck. It probably would’ve taken longer to get up there anyways and we would’ve been snowboarding with snow in our faces all day long because the weather forecast said it was going to be windy and snowing all day long.

So once again our snowboarding trip is put off for another week. We have to go on a Friday because it’s a special deal for college students where it only costs $15 per lift ticket compared to the regular $75 daily price of a lift ticket. Plus I don’t know if it would be fun to go snowboarding with snow and wind in our faces all day long. At least it would have been really tiring to be cold and wet all day long. Yet I was willing to do pretty much anything just to get up there as I just want to go snowboarding so bad, ugh! This is frustrating.

Once again this is partially due to my procrastination because we could’ve rented chains for $30 for five days instead of buying them for $60. Which would’ve have helped since we are both broke right now. Why is it that only rich people can afford to going skiing and snowboarding? It’s just so darn expensive. And I couldn’t find my snowboard boots last night so I was pretty sure they got misplaced in the addict or my dad might have accidentally given them away to the Goodwill. So last night I was kind of pissed off when I found out I was going to probably have to rent boots and a board, the kind where you click in in instead of strapped in. Which I’ve never ridden before and would’ve have been a new experience for me, even though I just got this other older board which I love, and much rather ride than a used rental board. I know I’m sounding spoiled, we’ll I guess I am, I’m daddy’s little girl. And since I am focusing on finishing my education right now and don’t have a job, it was important that I go snowboarding today because I know I’m probably not going to get another chance to go this season.

Next week when we go at least we know there will be snow from this week’s storm. We will be ready with chains and boots and what ever else we might need. I just hope the weather conditions are superior for the one day that I get to go up a year. I can’t wait and I look forward ro next Friday, yay!


Just Chillin At My Boyfriend’s House

My boyfriend and I are just relaxing in bed. He is playing his guitar while a watch the movie “Girl on a Train.” I’m using his Hotspot to write this post as I’m almost out of data on my phone. He is playing Karma Police by Radiohead and he says he wants a smoothie. But all we have in the fridge is milk.

We were going to go to church this morning as we are both in recovery and like to do things for bettering our spiritual connection to God. Like it says in the 12-steps programs. He is so sweet and I love how he is open to doing all sorts of things like that with me. Although we woke up too late.

He says he doesn’t like the coffee he got so we are going to the store soon to buy some stuff for the house. Yesterday he got a new/used truck so he can continue his job search and hopefully get a job soon doing construction or whatever he wants to do. He ended up having to scrap his old truck a couple days ago but his parents came down to help him purchase a used car for work and transportation purposes, because he lives out in the country and a bike is not an option when you are looking for a new job in construction.

I love Bryan so much. We have been together for almost two years now. After being separated from each other for ten years when we were together for about five years before. Although back then it was a turbulent relationship due to the fact that we were both strung out on heroin and cocaine. Those days were terrible and I’m so grateful were both clean now. He has about 7 months and I have 5 years clean and sober. So together we are a strong couple.

He is more of an extrovert type and I am more of an introvert type. We balance each other out well. He is the most gentle, loving, thoughtful and caring man I have ever met and I plan on being with him for the rest of my life. Not to mention he is handsome as hell and gets me going every day. He is my knight in shining amour. I love him so much it’s hard to put into words. I could just go on and on about all the good things about Bryan but I don’t want to bore you but I have to admit I am truly and surely head over heals in love with this man. And I am so lucky we found each other through Facebook and ran into each other at Big Lots on that faithful and beautiful day. He is my biggest supporter and love of my life. Did I say that already? Well I mean it. I will stop now for fear of getting to mushy.

Do you have anyone that you love or have ever loved this much? If so I would love to hear about it. Being the hopeless romantic that I am.

My Boyfriend Scrapped His Truck for $100 Today

Today was my boyfriend, Bryan’s, first day at his new job doing construction. It is a really good job that pays well with a very professional real estate/construction company. One of the stipulations was that you needed to have a reliable form of transportation. Obviously something to transport tools and other building materials around in, like a truck. Although his truck had formerly been in an accident and been sideswiped by another vehicle and had a big smash on the passenger side it still had a good frame even though the passenger side door did not open any more.

When he got to the gas station to fill up on his first day of work the keys would not turn over the ignition, which has been an ongoing problem in his truck for a while now. But it just had to happen on his first day to his good new job. So he called around to different scrap yards and one only offered to pay him $25 dollars for the truck. The most he could find to get for the truck was $100. So he took that instead. But I thought he would totally get more. It seems like robbery that they would only give him $100 for a truck that was just one minute ago in almost perfect running condition, albeit the smash on the side.

Anyway I went to pick him up at Starbucks where he had been waiting for the tow truck all day and then we went to go get the rest of his tools out of his truck at the scrap yard. It was sad to see that they had already spray painted the truck and marked it for demolition for parts. Well I hope he gets to keep his job that he wasn’t able to make it to today. His parents are kindly coming down to help him look at cars this weekend. So he can keep this job which he worked so hard to find. Wish him luck as he deserves it. He has had some bad luck with cars lately.
