  • I hope your dad is ok. I can relate about things going bad all at once. For me its money. I couldn't find a job for 4 months, finally got hired then my car got repoed the next day. No ride to work. Was living with my mom, finally got an apartment with a small deposit, then cuz of my credit they wanted 200 more. got pulled over in my moms car she had no registration or insurance so I got fined when I thought I was done paying fines. But I gotta keep going!! You and your dad are in my prayers!

  • Yike! I hope your weather clears up soon.

    I don't have to go in to work today because of ice, but I have a doctor's appointment I'm a bit concerned about this afternoon. Have to wait and see.

  • I always say it comes in threes. When one bad thing happens to me, two bad things are sure to follow! Sounds like you got your threes, so try to relax! I know when Im stressing about everything else, the little things get to me too. I spill a cup of water, and I break down in tears. KWIM?

    My day is actually going well, despite the fact that DD doesn't want to sleep in anymore. So that means she's up with me at 6, instead of me having an hour of me time.

    Im grateful the birds are chirping, and the sun is shining. Im excited about sewing more today, and hopeful that Papi and I can have some cuddle time later.

    Hope your day gets better mama!!!!!

  • That always happens to us too. When one thing happens, I just expect that something else is about to go wrong too. Hope things turn around for you soon hun.

  • Hope your day gets better and your dad is okay. What do I do on days like this? Stand back - count to 10 - and start to laugh my ass off.

  • You know what, that is how things ALWAYS go for me too..I always know that when things go bad for me, they go really bad. Like yesterday, somebody tried to break into my house...So, what else is going to go wrong?? Just laugh Jodi. When the microwave blows up, just laugh at shit like that. That is what I have started doing. At first my husband thought I had gone mad, but then he understood what I was doing...and it kind of worked. (Obviously I'm not saying laugh about your father, but just the other stuff...ya know, the car) I hope nothing else goes wrong for you hun!! I am praying for you, your family and your dad's recovery!!
