I have moved out of my house and for the first time in months am actually sleeping at night.

I was renting the main floor of a beautiful house in a great neighborhood but in December a group of low life, jobless drug addicts moved into the basement suite and made my life a living hell for 4 months.

Couldn't be happier to finally be out of that house and somewhere I feel comfortable again.

I am out of a garage but luckily my gramma doesn't drive and has given me full rein to turn her double garage into my personal workshop/garage.

Speaking of living situation updates but I finally moved back into my house after living with my parents since September and I couldn't be happier.

The house is a little excessive for a single guy and kids part time but I like the area and the garage space so as long as I can afford it I am going to keep it. Also for those in the know about my situation thanks for the continued support and love. This community is exceptional.

Also, while on the topic. I am going to be clearing out her garage this weekend. My grampa before he passed was a wood worker and has tons of quality wood etc. that I am going to be throwing out. If anyone would like to come look through it and take whatever they'd like let me know!

See if there any highschools or other organizations/gorups that could use the donated work working equipment.

Agreed, I'd sell as much as I could, especially if you're already ok with throwing it out.. Give your gma the cash and take a slice for yourself.
That being said, I'd be interested in knowing more about this stuff  :)

I'll admit I am old. In my day of tuning cars, all you needed was a long flat blade screwdriver, a custom bent 9/16" wrench, and a timing light!

Got promoted today. It was mostly the job I was already doing for the past 5 months anyway, but they made it official today. Been finding that Im really enjoying the area Ive been working in so its a good feeling to get recognized for it.

Go home Subaru. You're drunk.

Finally found a trailer to buy. Can move cars and equipment around a lot easier now.

My application with Toronto Police has been in for 2 weeks and I got 2 e-mails today from friends of mine submitting their internal references for me directly to the same recruitment officer, so I should hopefully have a good shot and hear back soon.

This time next month I'll be on a plane heading over to HK, and will be a few days away from starting a trip to Japan that was delayed for 30+ years.
Because... hoodscoop.  :P
