Our spring is busy. With our walk coming up, the MS walk we did last weekend out of town for my SIL, my moms one year anniversary party for her liver this weekend and so on...I don't think we have on free weekend till June. Add on that other everyday life stuff such as my foot having a strained tendon, Colin getting Strep again. ( Kindergarten germs are very potent I am finding) Then today my car had to go into the shop because it was leaking oil. and of course out of all the options that could have been causing this leak it had to be the most expensive reason. But then after I processed the news I turned to my husband and said, " You know what? " "It's still not the worst day or our lives." the worst day of our life is June 19,, 2012. After enduring the loss of my baby, saying goodbye, planning his funeral all in one day. Everything else doesn't seem so bad. It sucks that I have to have something expensive fixed on my car but it isn't the worst day of my life. I think I shocked my husband who was quite surprised by my attitude with this problem. I am normally the one who freaks out, worries and then a couple days later makes a plan to fix it. But I realized there is nothing I can do about it.
but looking forward to my moms party this weekend and hope C is better. I think I am going to have him finish out the school year wearing a hazmat suit the rest of the days. You name it he has caught it this year!
(((((hugs)))))) You're right... put in perspective... it's not the worst day. But, it stinks all of that had to happen at all... especially in one day. Too bad C was sick and chaos was ensuing when we were in your neck of the woods. We'll see you soon though.
I am giggling at the hazmat suit:) I am sorry though that C is sick. Some might say that a kid really builds up their immune system, but still, it's super hard when your child isn't well. Car repairs are no fun either. It sucks to funnel money that route when it could go to so many other things. I'm the one who freaks out too. I bet you and your hubby balance each other out well. It's not the worst thing that could happen, you're right. I am so sorry that you know what that day looks like.
Sending you more hugs,
It's great to be able to put things into perspective, but it would be so very wonderful if we could think these normal things were the worst ever. I got strep so often as a child. It really stinks that Colin is sick again. It's a nasty bug, and the antibiotics can be rough, too. I really hope he feels better soon.
