I figured I would pop in and read up since I haven't been on in a few days. I'm trying to occupy my mind a little before I lose it completely. I feel like I'm on another planet. Also, I miss Dh so much :(
He had a chance to further inspect his truck. It is an absolute miracle he even made it to his Dad's house, and a blessing that it quit when it did as well. The back main is out. The entire motor will have to be pulled and rebuilt. It's trashed. There was also more damage done to the underside from the accident, and it caused a leak in the brake line. He also found on further inspection that he had a cracked tire rod! If that had gone while he was driving he would have most certainly wrecked horribly...he would have lost the ability to steer and brake. Imagine that with a loaded 30 ft trailer behind you.
I'm still working on how we are going to get him home and get our stuff. We've decided the best plan of action is to try to get a moving truck, which I have sourced and will cost around $700, and that will get him home as well as our belongings. I'm just trying to figure out how I can come up with the money in a day's time, but I'm trying like hell. The truck and trailer will be safe being left at his Dad's house, and he can drive my car to school every day for the time being. All I care about at the moment is getting my husband home. He has had an absolute horrible weekend. We're trying to be in good spirits though, and have tried to find humor in the situation (like the tire flying past him while he was driving, and then someone stealing it)
But in all seriousness, I have my diamond wedding ring that I'm willing to sell to get the money to get him home if anyone knows an interested party. It's the only thing I have besides a few pairs of clothes, a cast iron pan, and an old model (Collegiate) english saddle that I can try to sell. Desperate times call for desperate measures, and this is one of those times. We've busted our butts to get moved here and make a good life for ourselves, and I'll be ****ed if I let this beat us!!!
Thanks again you guys, you have been so supportive and encouraging...and even listened to my venting and fussing. It really means a lot to me, I love you guys!!
