Warning: Whining Here!
Coming back from my 10 day vaca has NOT been fun.
I don't want to carry around all that dreck in my brain, so I'm dumping it here to make room for more positive stuff.
My latest challenges:
-Blew a truck tire coming home from the airport. On country road in 110 degree heat. Waited on side of the road for an hour before being rescued. Spent $1700 on new tires. Was trying to put off this expense as long as possible, but ended up paying more both in $ and 'experience'. Good News: DH had helped tow truck driver in the past, so he billed our insurance directly. No cash or credit card out of pocket charges!
-Next morning got a call from my Dad's assisted living that they sent him in ambulance to ER with a stroke. Fortunately, it was a 'small' one. Went thru usual hospital 'drama' and stress. Good News: He now only has a bit of droopy lip and is back to his apt with increased level of care.
-Woke up with a summer cold
. Sore throat, stuffy nose, tired. No wonder I had to take a 2 hr nap yesterday!!! Good News: Drinking Hot tea and Hot skinny mocha's this morning eased my throat and drained my nose
Seeing this stuff in writing has helped shift my perspective and attitude back to POSITIVE.
Thank you for your shoulders Sparkfriends!!!
