Today....today I hate needing to make hard decisions for myself and my direction moving forward. Life has a really funny way of taking things and forcing you to evaluate where you are on your journey, and where you need to go from where you are at. Sickness, loss, family, economics....its funny how you take these things for granted sometimes until you are forced to take a good hard look at yourself in the mirror and realize....

I am not well....physically or mentally.
I have lost my grandson, my wife, my child, and my family.
I am homeless.
My job doesnt pay me what I am worth.
I am at rock bottom...except for my health, there is nowhere to go except up.

Lets pray my health holds out long enough to right some wrongs.

:sigh:

vibes, brother. Chin up!
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

You still have time bud, you can do this.
At my age I probably couldnít do better than that.

I am dealing with a clogged kitchen sink for the first time ever. Just made a trip to home depot to buy a 15 foot snake. I really donít want to call a plumber tomorrow morning. F.

I know this sounds basic - but did you try just using a plunger?

Plunger > Pot of boiling water > Plunger > Pull off trap to check for clog > Baking Soda > Vinegar > Drain cap on for 20 minutes > Pot of boiling water > Snake about 6 feet down > Pot of boiling water > Baking Soda > Vinegar > Drain cap on for 20 minutes

About to drop another pot of boiling water, then snake it up to 15 feet. If that doesnít do it, I give up.

sulfuric acid from Home Depot. Pour it in and leave the house for a few hours. Itíll smell terrible but itíll unclog just about any blockage.

Ever hear of Draino?

Baking soda and vinegar is fun for kids science projects but ain't gonna do shit on a clogged drain.

Yeah, drano wasn't clearing this stuff.  It took a half hour of a professional snaking a 20 foot section of the run out to clear the clog.  All of the work I did ensured that the clog wasn't in the sink or the 15 feet of pipe out from the sink, which it apparently never was...

that's not illegal?
for future reference...
it is safe to use with plastic piping. Sulfuric acid is very simple to use and will unclog a drain within an hour, usually within seconds if it's not completely plugged up. Sulfuric acid is naturally occurring and is sewer and septic safe as it is diluted in its journey down your pipes.

Done it with positive results.
Don't like the smell or the effect it may have on the ecosystem but I can attest to it working.
