I’m Like Job, Only Not

June 3, 2009

I feel as if Someone out there is messing with me, trying to figure out exactly how many tiny annoyances I can take. Each one in itself is nothing to write home about, but the inconveniences just keep coming and it is driving me slowly out of my mind.

1. Our lack of furniture, and how we ordered it over three months ago and in the end just canceled in frustration. We continue to eat every meal on our laps or using TV trays.

2. A myraid of computer problems which, unfortunately, you already know too much about. And when I finally got my computer fixed up, our internet went out. I waited around the house all day long yesterday on my day off for the cable guy to come out and fix it, and of course he comes 5 minutes before his window is up. Then he tells me that our outside line is really bad and it will be a few days before someone ELSE can come out and fix THAT.

3. I’ve had this sore in my mouth for two weeks now. It’s finally starting to heal, and lo and behold a new one is popping up.

4. The lock to the driver’s side door of my truck is now broken. No big deal, right? I can just get in through the passenger side door. Nope. That lock has been broken for years. Since my truck is 10 years old and we’ll be getting rid of it when we have kids anyway (we both have trucks with tiny jumpseats in the back), it’s not worth putting money into to fix. So I just took everything valuable out of it and I’m leaving it permanently unlocked. If it gets stolen, oh well. I guess it’ll be time for a new car.

5. For whatever reason, a muscle in my back is really aching today.

Well this ends my venting session. I hope you’ve enjoyed your time here today!

    From Bill:

    I’ll come over this weekend and take the door panel off. It could be that the linkage is just disconnected and we could re-attach it.

  2. 2

    From krista:

    Sounds like everything is going wrong! I bet #5 is the result of #1 through #4. Hang in there!

    From dad:

    I have your 3 way switches, we can put them in this weekend! That’s a good thing.

  4. 4

    From Scott:

    For #3 – try this stuff out. It doesn’t taste very good, and it can sting, but it will heal the sore and keep others from coming back for months on end.

    From Becca:

    Kathleen, I also have a suggesttion for the sore in the mouth. Go to a health food store and buy some tea tree oil. Put a few drops in some water and swish it around. Do that as often as you want. It should be gone in a day or two. Micah didn’t believe me the first time I told him to do it. We use tea tree oil for everything from healing mouth sores, I put it in all my cleaners, deoderizing shoes, mosquito bites to stop the itch, etc. There are hundreds of uses for it. The stuff is amazing. Just don’t swallow it. I promise it will be the best $10 you have spent in a long while.
