when it rains
Tuesday, August 21, 2012
This week seems to be one of those ones where when it rains it pours. It seems something somewhere gets off track and everything begins to slide and shift. Maybe it's that one thing simply makes you shift a little and that's what causes it, or perhaps it's just good old murphy's law. But I also think it may as well happen all at once rather than be spread out. After a weekend of misses, the biggest one being finding out my son didn't get into the high school we wanted and after jumping through their hoops and going about it in the "right way" it was a pretty big disappointment. But we picked ourselves up from our bootstraps and filed and appeal. (Cross your fingers!) To today when driving home from a trip to Target I blew a tire, which was a first, it was actually a lot less scary than I thought it would be. I tried to see the silver lining and think, well, it's a good opportunity to show my fourteen year old how to change a tire! However, apparently during my last set of new tires the metal on my lug nuts were stripped and for the first time in my life I couldn't do it. That left us walking home 3 miles with my twins M+L and all our target booty. Memories, I tell myself, someday I remember today because while it wasn't great it was memorable. Ah, well, bring it on and I will just keep looking for the rainbows that are sure to come.
