Where have I been? Obviously not blogging, right? How in the world did this week get away from me!
Over the last few weeks, I have been….
Agonizing over my car. First, $700 for the new hood latch and headlights. Then it rolled over 100,000 and seemingly blew up. New cam shaft sensors and other guy stuff to the tune of $1,114. Two weeks later, I now need a wheel bearing and two new tires. He hasn’t called with the price yet. He had better do it soon before my wheel pops off.
Going to physical therapy. My therapist has the hands of a god. Unfortunately, although the accident was not my fault and the “distracted driver’s” insurance is paying for everything, I have to front ALL OF MY CO-PAYS AND MEDS. Where is there fair in this? Soon I won’t be able to pay to get better! Some days are full of pain, others are moderate. I am simply tired of being in pain.
Counting my lucky stars. My Vincent has visited this year. TWICE! Unexpectedly, I found myself driving to Williamsburg THIS MONDAY NIGHT in a thunderstorm to pick him up for a four day visit. TWICE-IN-ONE-YEAR. My goodbye post was in 2009. In my heart, he is still my son and will always be. Vincent brought joy to me this week during a time of definite lows. Yup. This week I was counting my lucky stars.
Looking puzzled at the surprise in my back yard. One of my neighbors went in another neighbor’s yard and cut part of a tree. PARTIALLY CUT part of a tree. And today, it snapped at the cut and crashed in to our back yard. The fence looks pretty mangled under all that. Happy Neighbor Surprise!
And finally, marveling at the twin baby deer that have emerged from mom’s Corolla back yard. Amidst the chaos, there can be found joy.
Where did YOU find joy this week?
