humor me

July 19, 2010

Y’all, my life is a little bit crazy right now. It seems like, with David and me, we’ll just be going along fine with our little lives for awhile and then all of a sudden something big will happen – usually not something very good – and then the sky opens up with a bunch of other annoyances.

Oh, you want to refinance your house? No problem, everything is in perfect order, you’re guaranteed a huge reduction in payment along with a refund. But wait, what’s this! Two foreclosures in your neighborhood? Hold on just a hop skip. You’ll probably end up getting the refinance, but you might not get the refund and it definitely won’t be for at least another month.

Oh, your husband needs his hips replaced? That’ll be close to $4000 for surgery and medication, at least a month of unpaid sick leave, and by the way don’t even think about that vacation you have planned. What’s that, you want to have a baby? Not so fast – we need you to experience a healthy dose of miscarriage & infertility first. And just for good measure we’re going to clog up your bathroom sink so good that not only will nothing go down, water will actually come up.

Not enough stress at home? We’ve got you covered at work. We’ll start with a patient who’s having diarrhea every thirty minutes and is too weak to wipe her own behind, add to that an angry man who is ready to call administration if you so much as allow his IV pump to beep more than once, and just for kicks we’ll throw in a nice smelly wound full of tumor and infection that you need to keep clean.

Whew. That was ugly.

So, now that I have that out of my system, I hope I can get over myself already. There are worse things in the world.

    Boo! That’s not fun. (Probably the understatement of the year.) I’m praying for you and your husband!

    From Nora:

    Oh my goodness, friend. What a hand you’ve been dealt lately! Hip replacement? That sounds positively awful and painful for the hubs. Keeping you all in my thoughts and hoping things get better for you soon. Let us know if we can do anything!

    From Amber from Girl with the Red Hair:

    It’s OK to feel sorry for yourself every once in awhile. Sure, there are worse things in the world, but that doesn’t mean you can’t whine and complain about your own unlucky hand as well!

    Things can only go up for you from here! Thinking of you! XO

    From Amy --- Just A Titch:

    I’m so sorry that you guys have to deal with all that—I know that my family has sort of had a bad year (but things are looking up) and it’s so frustrating to take one hit after another. I recently heard the phrase, “Life has been better, and it will be again.” I will be hoping and praying that things get better for you soon, too.

    When it rains, it really does pour, doesn’t it?? Sometimes it feels good just to write about it! Hope things start looking up for you though!

    From Lauren From Texas:

    A few times over the last year we’ve felt some of the same feelings… although, I can’t IMAGINE what y’all are going through… so I know what you mean. It’s easy to feel sorry for yourself. A little too easy. And no one would blame you for doing so. But I know you’re a strong woman & you’re going to come out of this even stronger, more beautiful, & wise about things the rest of us can’t even comprehend. You know I love you & am always here for you – I mean that. Come see me soon. <3

    That was a good rant Kat. Hope it helped you. Give yourself some slack, we all love you.

    From MelissaOklahoma:

    It’s good to just get it out there. I’m really hoping things look up soon, because what you’re going through sounds tough!!!!!

    Thinking of you and David.
