Leesa’s Life

Archive for September 2011

Let sleeping dogs lie…that is one saying that I really wish would sink in around here. Every time things start calming down, things get quiet, someone…ok it’s hubby….dredges up something to make things explode all over again.

Last post told you about the employee who totaled our truck. Well, guess what? The idiot is suing US over the accident. He totalled a $100,000 work truck and he is suing US. Yeah. Anyway, things had quieted down from it. Our attorney was working on a settlement and it looked like things were going to be taken care of calmly and quietly. Enter hubby today…spouting off at the mouth, telling anybody who will listen how this employee is nothing but a money grubber seeing big dollar signs since he knows we’re going out of business, and he has riled employee right up there in where he is now seeking even bigger $$. Hubby couldn’t just sit back and let the lawyer do his job, noooo….he has to go all Rambo and screw it all up. I understand that he is mad. I understand that this employee really has no right to what he was asking for in the first place BUT when you are in business, lawsuits are a part of that. There is always going to be someone who sees what you have and want a piece of that for themselves. That is where our lawyer comes in. He is there to make sure that those piece wanters don’t get too much of a chunk. He was doing his job, the piece that we were going to have to give up was nothing really, but now who knows what kind of check we’re going to have to write out. Just wish Hubby would learn to keep his mouth shut so I didn’t have to sit and worry myself to death over the crap he likes to stir up.


I’m crazy. Mentally insane. Cuckoo for Coco Puffs. Gone.

Events of the past week drove me there although it’s been coming for some time now. I always knew the business stress would do me in and I was right. All it took was an auto accident to give me that final nudge over the edge. I wasn’t even involved in the accident. It was an employee (he’s ok thankfully) but he was driving our newest truck (only had it a little over a year) and it totaled it (of course). Our insurance has decided to be a royal pain (aren’t they all?) and not pay for half of what we were supposedly paying our premiums for so we’re left with a ton of money owed on something that we don’t even have now. Top that off with another accident (minor fender bender) the next day and that was enough to send me spiraling into the depths of insanity. I’m talking full blown babbling, drooling, sitting in the corner rocking back and forth insanity. Give me that pretty white jacket with the long arms and buckles and stick me in that lovely room with the fluffy walls and I’ll be happy.

It drove the hubby over the edge too. We’re giving up this business before it kills us both. Bad thing though we will have nothing to show for 10+ years of hard work. No savings, no retirement, nothing except broken minds and bodies and 10+ years that we’d both like to forget.
