Murphy's Law

This month has been a textbook example of Murphy's law.

1) First, the silver car broke down, twice. The first time it cost us $800. The second time was free because the morons at Pep Boys did something wrong. But the second time Ryan was stranded on the freeway and I had to pack up the girls and go get him, during rush hour. It would be funny if it wasn't so recent.

2) Next, this month I have had a cold and two, yes TWO periods in one month. Not helping.

3) Last week, the blue car broke down. We think it is the starter, but we haven't taken it in. Can't afford to. See #1.

4) A few days ago Lizzie lost her glasses. They have dropped into some kind of warp field and are completely gone. We have torn apart the house looking for them. They are nowhere. And we cannot afford to get her another pair. Again, see #1.

4) Yesterday, my washer stopped working. I was trying to wash a normal load and it decided not to spin it out. My jeans are floating in soapy water because I just can't face what a mess it would be to take them out. I know I should, but see #2

5) These are all in addition to the normal problems like tight money, a husband who is unavailable because of work and school, young and hyper children who are methodically destroying the house and everything in it, as well as major depression and anxiety problems. I'm really not sure how much more I can take.

I just did another podcast episode and I feel really anxious about it. I have no reason to be. It's not really a special episode. I just feel so inadequate and stupid today. But then, because of this horrible month, I feel that way every day and I really wanted to just get an episode out anyway. I am just so tired of the insurmountable obstacles. Gosh darn it, just leave me alone!


  1. Hang in there. Life is bound to get better. Just downloaded the new podcast and hope I'll have a chance to listen this weekend. Have a good night.

  2. Ya, can't get much worse from here. (knock on wood) :)

  3. 2 Miracles today. First, my hubby fixed the washer. Hallelujah!!!

    Second, Lizzie found her glasses!!! You don't know how much stress was relieved from this one simple thing. *huge sigh of relief*

  4. Sarah.. I am listening to your last podcast, but didn't see it posted on here, so am adding my comment here :-)just wanted to say, I feel for you ! I had a hyster. 3 yrs ago & fought depression , terrible for a couple yrs. Sometimes it tries to sneak back in, But as you know we have to Pray our way out. I say to myself.. NOPE ! not today & I grab my teen dd & we go for a walk. even it isn't only around the yard !LOL one thing you might want cked would be your hormone levels. If you are on any birth control , ask your dr. about depression with them. There is help. remember : not all bad news is bad in the long run. I used to scream when i had to wait in traffic, now I just KNOW that God caused the delay for me to prevent something bad from happening.. Always look at things as a blessing. NOT a curse :-) more time to relax , listen to good news on the radio. or simply tell jokes with my dd :)
    any who, I pray today is better. NO ! TODAY IS better ! :-)
