One of those days...

Isn't there some kind of pessimistic theory that says if something can go wrong it will? Well, it's been one of those days.

Last night I left my umbrella at work. Of course it rained this morning on my way in.

Yesterday we got word that my husband's car, which is in the shop for repairs, will cost significantly less than we originally thought. Today we found out that it needs a new motor, and is for all intents and purposes now just a metal box on wheels. (I seriously got a text message from my husband saying "Don't panic.") Naturally, we have to pay for the work that has already been done, which really lowers our chance of being able to get something different in the near future. Ironic twist here: about two weeks ago, we finally sold my husband's old car, which ran fine.

Today is payday, and I'm fairly certain that just about all of my check is already spoken for.

So far this week, I've learned that most of what ails me is pretty trivial in the grand scheme of things, but that in the moment, sometimes it just makes me feel better to throw a big hairy fit. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. Go tomorrow, you can do it!

Jessica, I so know the feeling. I've been there so many times that it's just so expected now. Like your hubby said, "Don't panic". You all will get through it. You may consider it a set-back, but I'm sure it will have many benefits in the end. Look on the bright side of things, you will be blessed with so much more after all is said and done. There is a beautiful light at the end of this tunnel for both of you. :)

Hi Jessica, I guess everything is relative. I used to think I was having a bad week until I went to nursing school and learned about what is happening in the lives of people who are ill. Some people's stories are so sad and unfair, like a 19 yr old guy I met who was riddled with cancer. It was truly depressing. Not to discount your crummy week or anything, I feel the same way you do...except that I have crummy months and even crummy years. But there have been good years too. My best advice is to get something like a warm chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream and forget it all for a while.

Thanks ladies. We're not out of the woods yet, but we have a plan now, so that makes me feel so much better.
