For as many years as I have known my hubby’s uncle L I have seen him with a cigar whenever he can get one in. When we go camping he always brings a box of cigars. During his stay he seems to go through quite a few. I have found that some of the guys that he plays horseshoes with tend to like cigars so they get some off of him. He jokes around that the cigars bring him good luck, but we know the truth… He knows that his cigars are like a natural insect repellent. We brought him a few catalogs that we get in the mail so that maybe he could find a cheap source for some good cigars. One of the many ads that we get are for Davidoff cigars for sale. He just tells us that he tries different brands, but usually sticks to one specific type.
Now that hubby has his ATV at his house, and the little one goes to practice her bow and arrow, and 22 rifle shooting we get to see him quite a bit. We enjoy seeing uncle L when we do. Now that we are at the campground till October we will see him a lot more than we have in some time. He has other obligations so we understand why he can’t come up to the house anymore.
Last month our little one made her final decision that she didn’t want to continue playing soccer. It upsets hubby and I, but we do want to be fair to our daughter by not forcing her to do something that she doesn’t want. We made the agreement that she had to do some sort of activity. She has been talking about the 4H for some months now. We took her down to one of the years first 4H meetings for the Bowbenders. In the Bowbenders she gets to shoot air rifles, bow and arrow, 22 caliber rifles, and shotguns.
We went out and bought her a fairly cheap compound bow so that she can practice when she is down at her uncles house. This is because of our concern for safety. In the group she is in she will be performing at the Ocean County Fair, and also helping out with publicizing about the 4H program.
She seems to like the 4H. We have noticed that she is trying to become friends with many of the kids that are also in the program.
For the past few months money has been tight around the house. Hubby is trying to work as much as possible, but people just aren’t beating down the door to get his services. Hubby is a computer tech, security camera professional, network tech, and more. Each month I continually forget to not try and stress hubby. I stress him by telling him that the money is low, or that the next month is going to be tight. I have been told repeatedly that this isn’t what he wants to hear because he always comes through in the end no matter what he has to do.
I have told him that I won’t do that anymore. I also told him that worst case scenario we could just go Chapter 11. He said that he didn’t want to cross that road because he has worked very hard to get us where we are. After that he said that the NJ bankruptcy rules are not really different from a bankruptcy in New York state, or any other state for that.
We don’t want to lose the house, car, or… Well to be frank about it we don’t want to lose anything.
