It only comes in threes, right?

Monday has officially kicked my ass. Here's why:

1. Ian went for his TENS eval today to see if they could take off his foot/ankle brace and use these bands that send electronic pulses through the nerves so he would be able to walk without the brace. It didn't work. At all. He's stuck with the brace, apparently for good. As his orthopedist said "It is what it is. If it gets better - great, but I think this is what you've got."

2. We went to a kids' health fair this weekend and while we were there they noticed Ian's blood pressure was pretty high. We had them check it today while he was at the eval and it's still high. Time for a doctor appointment to see if we can figure out why.

3. After blowing $600 on school uniforms for the kids over the weekend, our air conditioner died today. Seriously. It's hit almost 100 degrees every day for the last forever, this is no bueno.

You know, I think I'm a pretty nice person, although yesterday I did flip off the guy in the car ahead of me because he threw his trash out of his car and onto the median. But still, I thought my karma was pretty good - WTF?!?

My dear friend.. I wish I could say that... but I have learned the no-no of never say "what next?" because you will get it!
That and I am so tired of what the Good Lord thinks I can handle. It is time he found someone else!

But... we plow through because that is how we roll.

Were you able to get your a/c fixed???

Its me, my dear. Bad Karma. (I still don't care about the "juice") But, like the doctor says, it is what it is. We'll get through it, as usual.

What's that age-old line, "this too will pass"?

Chin up. Things can only get better :)

Cecile: Hahaha - you're right, that's how we roll!

J: This is your fault? Grrr...

Danielle: I know it will pass - just like the last time I had a meltdown, it gets better :) Thanks!
