I hired the lawyer. I paid the $3,000 deposit, and I’m going to get my PW trailer in an hour, as well as as many more of my personal belongings as I’m allowed to take. My dad is flying out tomorrow night and we’ll drive back to TN together on Thursday/Friday. So I’m moving back to the south with most of you guys.
It’s really hard, leaving everything here. I don’t feel like TN is home at all. In fact, home feels like anywhere my wife is really. But I think it’ll be good to be near family, and it’ll help financially to recover from all this. I already have an interview tomorrow for a job out there, and if that one doesn’t work out, I shouldn’t have any issues finding other jobs. I’m pretty good at what I do, and I hear Nashville is really growing, so I should be able to find something no problem. My dad is going to let me move in with him and not charge me anything so that I can focus on getting all the fees and attorneys and credit cards and stuff paid off quickly, so that will be a tremendous help. If I can get a job soon, I might be able to have it all paid off before I have to come back out here for the sentencing. That would take a massive load of stress off of me, just needing to deal with the emotional parts then instead of the finances too.
Thank you everyone for being so kind and supportive. @racer even called me a few times to ask how I was doing and to give me some encouragement. Thank you, to each one of you.
