Monday - I got a sinus infection. It took 2 hours of phone tag and another 2 hours in the doctor's office to get this taken care of.
Tuesday - We came home from work to find the AC was out AND we had an ant infestation in our kitchen.
Wednesday - My email got hacked. And since I usually don't send out junk messages, a good number of people clicked on the link before I was able to change the password and send out a message telling them not to open the link. Bu tat least the AC got fixed. Lightening ran in on a coil. They replaced it quickly. Which was good, because I had a fever with this infection Monday night (while the AC was out - I don't recommend having a fever in June without AC!) and into Tuesday afternoon. The AC was fixed by 9 a.m. My internal thermostat didn't catch up until around 4 p.m.
Today - Side effects from the antibiotics! Fortunately, I had medicine for that from my last infection, so no need for the doctor or pharmacy again.
So you tell me; do I dare get out of bed tomorrow?
The truth is, we all have days like that. I know I'm not alone and everybody puts up with frustrations and setbacks from time to time. It just seems that I have days like that by the week. It's not just one bad for me. If things are screwed up on Monday, I get nervous - and for good reason. But the opposite is also true. The good all happens in clusters too. Remember the 2 book contracts in the spring of 2011 and how drastically my writing picked up in a relatively short time after a 3 year dry spell?
The name of the game is certainly troubleshooting and resolution this week. It happens. A lot of people cry the "why me/what have I done to deserve this?" song, but that's useless. The crap tank explodes every now and then. That's just how life goes for every one of us. If you think about it, you can find ways it could have been worse, so mop up the mess and move on. In fact, that seems to be the secret to getting things back in balance, at least for me: Do what you can to fix it, find things to be thankful for, thank those who help you, and trade the passive griping for active resolution.
Things seem to be coming back together. Who knows? Maybe the bad luck has run out and tomorrow will be about putting it all back together and making progress. Let's pray it continues and hopefully brings about better days - and better luck!
That's all today. Have a Happy Friday tomorrow and a good weekend. And enjoy this musical treat that I have deemed my "song of the week."
