Sometimes life throws lemons at you – hard

This past week has been exhausting both physically and emotionally.

  1. I was in a car accident last Wednesday when didn’t seem to be that big of a deal, but after calling my insurance company and reporting it to the collision center and bringing it to the mechanic for a quote and dealing with body stiffness from the sudden hit (yes I hit him…) my emotions have been up and down.  I feel like an idiot for having my first accident – EVER, yet at the same time, I feel there was a million things I had do and without my dad to call and cry to I felt awful and remembered just how much I miss him and his ability to look at everything very rationally.
  2. My mom’s blood pressure has been through the roof – seriously it got up to 214/105 at one point!  I have taken her to emergency, shes gone to her regular doctor and been to Shoppers for blood pressure testing everyday and it’s like a roller coaster with no straight lines.  Her doctors don’t know what’s wrong, they have done a cat scan, an ECG and numerous blood tests – all normal!! NORMAL??!!
  3. The rental car I got on my first day driving it got a flat tire on the main highway and as it was rush hour traffic – no one would let me over!!!  It took an hour for me to get CAA to come and change the tire and then was told I had to go to Enterprise to change the vehicle as I couldn’t drive it with a spare on the highway!  I had to take my whole lunch break (and I was also an hour late for work) to get that done.
  4. My insurance company said GOOD NEWS, I have accident forgiveness.  BAD NEWS, I have a $1000 deductible which means I am out a grand! dammit.  My adoption agency money also just went through and that was $500.00 so in a matter of a couple of days my entire pay check is gone and I haven’t paid rent or eaten.  Huh…

They say God doesn’t give you more than you can handle, I just wish he’d pave the way of riches to make the bumps a little easier!!

The great news is that my PRIDE classes are finished and my home study is one step closer to being completed!!!!  This is so exciting and makes 1-4 totally okay at the end of the day.
