Everybody has those moments when you want to scream at the universe, “WHYYYYYYYYYYY MEEEEEEEEEE?”
I had one of those moments Thursday night when we found out that the AC unit at the rent house had died …. costing us around $3,000.
I had another one on the way home from OKC Saturday night when I noticed a chip in my windshield.
I had another one late Saturday night when I had stomach cramps that would knock an elephant to it’s knees … followed by …. well believe me, you don’t want to know.
I had another one Sunday morning when we realized that Derek had left my car door open all night long.
Back when I was Paxilated, I spent a lot of time bitching and complaining to people about how awful my life was … of course, now I just spend that time bitching and complaining about stuff to you, my readers.
But it’s different now …. something has clicked …. something has changed
Yesterday it hit me that nobody has an easy life. NOBODY!
Oh sure, sometimes I joke that I should have been born a Hilton, but I know deep down inside that I’m not suited for a life of lazy luxury.
I prefer to be down in the trenches … raising teenagers … cleaning house … trying to take care of rent houses … coming up with creative ways to make it all work.
Yes, my days have been a cloudy lately, but I know that it could be so much worse. I have lived through worse …. and this isn’t it.
