When it rains, it pours!
I hate to be a Debbie Downer, so hopefully after this post I'll have some more fun filled or positive ones. Actually, I did get a bit of good news- I was accepted into grad school at the only university I applied to. That was good as it was my only feasible option.
Anyway, onto downer personal items. So, as you saw from my post on Pekin, it looks like we probably won't be getting anything from insurance on our truck. So, a lesson in life learned. When someone flies through an intersection and totals your vehicle, don't be nice and feel sorry for said person because it was icy as my husband did. Put blame where it was due.
So yesterday was my son's one year check up. My 3 year old has been sick for over a week and started running a temp, so I took her in as well. My son had a small cold, but seemed to be getting over it. Well, he turned out to have an ear infection... again... so we were referred to an ear, nose and throat doctor who determined my son should have tubes put in. This will be done next Thursday. And what was wrong with my daughter? Pneumonia. My poor kid! And of course instead of feeling sorry for the also sick mother for having two sick children, "people" choose to be judgmental and lay all the blame at my feet for exposing them to the outdoors or saying perhaps my house is too cold... cause God forbid it was one of the many viruses going about or traveling on an airplane, etc.
I am desperate for some good news! Being on a tight budget, having to buy a new vehicle so my husband has transportation to work, buying medicine left and right, doctors appointments, gas to transport to said doctors and the stress of all these things along with the fact I've been sick for several days is leaving me in woe.
Luckily I'm a glass half full kinda gal and know there is sunshine in the horizon or I'd need some mass quanitites of Prozac to get over this present hurdle.
Thanks for listening to my rant! I promise happier posts soon!
