I accepted the Asst Soccer Coach position for the middle school boys team and that proved to be quite time consuming. I wouldn't trade it for anything though. Even though I hardly rode my bike, I got to spend every afternoon with the kid and 23 other boys. The Coach: Mike Kerr is an amazing coach and I learned a lot from the guy. Super kind hearted and uses a positive reinforcement approach that is spot on.
On top of that, I decided to get my CDL so I could drive a school bus. This turned out to be a time suck; 2. 5 days of class, 4 visits to the DMV, paperwork, on visit to pee in a cup (while talking about hunting with the female tech, just another day on the job), 2 days of driving with instructor and 1/2 day of driving test..... and $200 later, I have my CDL.
I'm now looking around at trucks, I want to upgrade to a crew cab. Good grief, seems like everybody has lost their minds. A 2007 Silverado with 150k miles on it for $12,000? What the crap? I'm kinda stuck in the middle and not sure what to do, I don't have that kind of money and not sure I can afford the monthly payments for that amount right now. New is out of the question for shizzy.
What to do? Keep on keepin' on, and hoping for a miracle!
