The Good and Bad in Everything

Wednesday, July 19, 2017

Bad: I had to morrow money to get another lawyer for the divorce.
Good: Hubby is trying to cheat me out of more money. It won't happen.

Bad: car won't start.
Good: the garage door won't open anyway. I don't have the money to fix anything, so no one will be able to bum rides off me.

Bad: The "feels like" temperature all week is over 100.
Good: I've been getting my walks and yardwork done in the morning. I caught up on housework in the afternoon. Got to toss a bit the past couple of days.

Bad and Good: Helena just turned 3. She's potty trained. But, being 3, she is at the :do it myself my way" stage. But she makes me laugh every day. Grandpa was making hot dogs for the two of them the other day. He set his buns on the toaster and turned it on to get them nice and warm. But he forgot about them. The smoke alarm went off and he did the dance of getting the smoke out. When all was said and done, Helena looked at him and sweetly said, "Grandpa, next time, maybe you should use a timer."

My attitude must be improving or I wouldn't be able to look at both sides so quickly. emoticon

    Oh sweetie, I wish I could help you. Borrowing money is stressful enough, and having to hire another lawyer is no picnic either. Hopefully the car and the garage will end up being easy fixes. And you definately got me beat on the yard work! I avert my eyes every time I drive past.

    I;m glad you're able to see the bright side. emoticon
