This is what my driveway looks like… Ohhhh that looks fun you say…. NOPE. Everything is out front because it’s ALL Broken. (The only think not pictured is the Truckster, because that’s getting fixed somewhere else.)
On Tuesday we went to ski, it’s June 21 and I haven’t been in the water yet. I just want to ski. That’s it. Simple. I don’t ask for much. Apparently asking for things not to break is too much.
Tuesday started with me sitting on a wasp. Then the bearing blew on one side, grease everywhere, the breaks smoked – bad and the heater core leaked, flooding the boat. The air conditioner stopped working in the explorer, and I lost the cap to it when I charged it. The day ended with me throwing up after two glasses fo wine because I was too frustrated with the day to remember to drink water. Tuesday was literally so bad I was scared to take my paddle board out because it probably would have snapped in half. hahahahaha
(To add to the MasterCraft chaos … the pontoon needed a starter, now a new bulb, the Jetta was in the shop getting the emission “fix” and they messed something else up while fixing it, the truckster is running but needs some adjusting to make it really run, the explorer has almost 300, 000 miles on it and the air went out. And then all the little random things that break!)
I think this was the first time I literally threw my hands in the air and was really mad at Duane for dying. He taught me so much and I can fix a lot but EVERYTHING is broken in some way. When I calmed down I remembered that something was always broken. Always…. There was a time between us we had 6 boats, 2 jet skis, 5 cars, a motorcycle, 2 dirt bikes, a plane, a trailer, a motorhome and countless random things with motors and moving parts. Something was ALWAYS broken. We were ALWAYS working on things. I would come home and find gas tanks in the middle of the street, a car dash ripped off, a motor pulled apart… I have been stranded on the side of a highway in the middle of nowhere at least a hundred times because something broke.
It’s life. I’m laughing about it now – kinda. I’ll be on the lake today, in the pontoon floating away my troubles.

The update…. New starter in the pontoon, bypassed the heater core in the mastercraft, new o2 sensor in the Jetta, air conditioner charged in the explorer…
