He needed a new drumhead. His band had landed a huge gig and everyone was upgrading their instruments before the show. They wanted to make a big impression, they wanted to give Kansas City a show they would never forget.
He stared at the drumhead packs displayed before him with a heavy-hearted sigh. While the prices seemed fairly reasonable, his paycheck was never enough, even for bills. How could he give his fans his best if he didn't have the best for his drums? It was a question he'd been asking himself for the past several weeks.
His eyes scanned over the packs once more, until he found the one he was looking for. It was the lowest in price, but it would have to do. It meant meals would be missed and he'd be walking to work for a while, but it was all he could do for now.

I haven't had time to myself in I don't know how long. Yesterday I slipped outside for a good 10 minutes before the household realized I was gone, and managed to enjoy a cup of coffee (my one cup allowed due to my disease, about to change..) and a book I found at a yard sale for 25 cents!
The book is very bold and to the point. It's an eye opener and not for the weak at heart. I love it! I need to make so many changes to my life, and this book may very well be a big part of it. It's one of those books I haven't been able to put down, and that's really surprising with my recent diagnosis. I think, just like everything else I've started, I'll get bored eventually, but in all honesty, I really hope not! Crossing my fingers here!
Setting some new goals in life, including back to the gym. I'm just really tired, burned out to the point I almost broke down today. Something has got to change.
So let's do this!
