Dark Cloud

At work this morning, someone asked me if the dark cloud was still over me (in regards to all the unlucky things that have been happening and the stupid things I've been doing myself). Apparently I spoke to soon when I said that it had begun to lift. I had said that my last incident was the mail box incident.

Well then it all started during my morning break. The previous owners had been here to fix a leaky pipe they had promised to fix when the weather warmed and while they were here, notified me that the dishwasher is leaking (which would explain why the floor is soft in that area). This on top of all the other things I need to fix and do on a tight budget. Grrrr.

Then while at the middle school (where I was for exactly 45 mins., just to teach one classs) I got a ticket!!! A parking ticket!! I knew that I couldn't block a fire hydrant but I had no idea I had to be at least 15 ft. away! Grrrrr!!!! What dumb luck! All other cars lined up, not further than 15 ft. away from hydrant, some blocking the cross walk and I am the ONLY one with a ticket! It's now costing me to go to work!

I'm soooo frustrated with this dark cloud and now I'm scared. I'm financially scared that I'm never going to be able to provide for my children and repair the place I need to make last.

I'm also asking myself "why?" Not why me, but what does this all mean? Everything happens for a reason and although I have thought and felt I was on the right path, normally I would consider all of these events as signs that I am very much off path.

Now I have to go to Kev's conference and after the 40 on the quiz Friday and the knowledge that he's once again not meeting grade level. Plus the fact that I haven't got a hold of the psychologist to have him evaluated due to vacation on their part. The kids are already fighting physically and harrassing eachother and I need to leave them for 20 mins for the conference.

I don't have the answer to the "why", but I hope it's enough for you to believe that *I* believe there IS a reason.

Listen to elkhound. Look for help from family at times like this.

Something good will head your way.

No, I just believe that it is merely living. You are in a new place and things are going to go wrong. I think that you are probably stressed with new responsibility and worries. Just slow down. We control our fate, and you can improve yours just by getting your breath and slowing down.

Hugs and prayers for you right now, hon. I'm sure state laws vary but I did not know you had to be at least 15' from a fire hydrant. I learn something new everyday.

Oh Sweetie!!

I wish we lived closer too - Between Mary's husband & mine they would have you fixed up in no time! And the 3 of us could enjoy coffee and girl time!

gwen, take a deep breath. this is not the universe cursing you. I will keep you in my prayers that all these things work out for you. if we lived closer I would send my hubby over to fix things. he is good at helping out other people, just not his own house.
