A String of Bad Luck…putting things in perspective.

It seems lie it has just been one thing after another lately.  I have had a major string of unfortunate luck lately.  Add this with my pregnancy brain, and I have been STRESSED to the max.
Just a few to list:
-Our old house is STILL on the market (going on a year now).  We had some potential interest, with a double showing last week.  The second showing happened to be on the coldest day of the year….and the front door lock got jammed, while they were there.  Ugh.  Just our luck.  Needless to say, no offer.  The lock has since been changed, and functions much better now.  Of course the changing process was not easy...they keys that the made did not work, etc., etc.
-I dropped my phone this weekend and shattered my screen. 
-I had this fear yesterday that I didn’t turn the crock pot on, so I ran home on my lunch break.  It was a slushy, icy day.  On the way home I sled into the ditch.  Ugh.  I am OK.  Buy it was by brand new Acadia!  $550 of damage later.  Of course insurance won’t cover it.  We have a $500 deductible…so obviously we should not turn it in.
-The bills on everything are just piling up…I feel like I can’t keep up.  Two houses is too much to pay for.
-I am forgetting everything!  In addition to me not recalling if I turned the crock pot on (I did)…I am forgetting if the garage door has been shut…causing me anxiety all day long.
Then I start feeling sorry for myself…and I think…ANNIE, you are fine.  There are people who are having a WAY harder time right now.
*I am healthy, and have a  healthy baby growing in my belly.
*I have two beautiful children who mean then world to me.
*I have a husband who loves me, is a great dad, and a hard worker.
*I have a beautiful home (well 2…but we won’t go down that road again).
*I have a new, reliable car (with a little bumper damage).
*I have family and friends that are there whenever I need something.
And on, and on, and on…
I am FINE….and this stage shall pass!!

Thinking of you! And the prego brain just doesn't help everything else going on! ;-)

Oh no! Glad you're ok! It was an icy, slushy mess here as well. I've started triple checking to make sure our curling irons & straighteners are off before I leave in the morning ... If I can't remember shutting it off, I worry about it all day long. Hugs! :)

Paige said...

oh man! I have been there too. It stinks. Glad you are OK. Hugs to you. This too shall pass.... xo

I always try to look at the positive when all that crap happens.
I'm sorry, though. It really seems like everything happens at once!

Candice said...

I love your attitude. In the grand scheme of things, these troubles don't matter. However I can see how they'd be stressful!!

I love all the quotes as well, I needed them tonight (thanks!). When life gets overwhelming it's hard to remember how lucky we really are. Stay positive, things will work out!

Has anything ever bothered you in life? Do you
have any problem you need to solve? A pending
court case you want to resolve in your favor?
Health, relationship and finance. Welcome to
the world of miracles and wonders, there are
supernatural treasure and power to liberate
mankind from all afflictions. Why cant you live a
life of your dream? Why must you work so hard
and yet earn so little? Why cant you be happy
with the one you love and desire or why cant the
one you love reciprocate and appreciate that
love? Why would the doctor tell you there is no
solution or cure to your problems? Why would
your lawyer say you stand no chance, that your
case is hopeless? Have you been cheated by
anyone or those owing you money refuse to pay
back? Do you need a rapid job promotion in
your place of work? You want to venture into
politics? Now I understand certain things are
hard to believe and comprehend, but all I ask
from you is only 3 days and if you will follow my
instructions and use the items you will receive, I

business with you please be advised. May
angels guide you. All inquiries should be
