    I'm sure every one is in the same boat this time of year. Between trying to get the last bit of leaves sucked up, employee's not showing up or late to family at the last minute "can you come suck up my leaves, it will only take a few minutes....yeah right!" to loading salt into our storage container with a dumb arss semi truck parked 7ft from the door to figuring out how these stupid BOSS wings go on the plow (in rainy crappy weather) to again, brother in law calling 3 times today already "when ya coming down" to driving and meeting my Wife 1hr away at a church to appease my in laws to .....should I go on?lol That was just 2 days worth! HAD to vent! I need a beer!

    i was having issues like that about 2 months ago, so i ended up telling a bunch of "users" in my life to screw off, dropped the girlfriend (who was driving me nuts), and did a renovation on my house that i have been wanting to do for a long time now. I feel so much better.

    I know how it is to feel overwhelmed but whenever I feel that way I think about all the people who wake up every day with nothing to do. I'm thankful to not be one of them.

    X2.. That's what I do. Funny thing is my wife hates it when I work 14 hour days, but cries when the checks aren't piling up. The fall to winter switch is by far the worst part. Good luck.
