Oh, don’t tell me carma doesn’t come around and wishing out to the Universe doesn’t pay off. First, this week had been a very bad week. The school called earlier this week asking if my oldest daughter, age 9, was doing okay. Confused since I’d put her on the bus that very morning I asked if she threw up and if I needed to pick her up. Instead I got more confusion as they claimed she’d never been at school. I won’t lie, panic filled my whole inside, in the end she had been there it took a few minutes for them to go back to class to discover this. Apparently the girl that sits in front of her is much taller so the teacher missed her.
That was the first BAD thing, the next was the hubby calling to tell me our van (only vehicle) had broke down on the highway. Knowing we don’t have money to get it towed and not knowing anyone we were out of luck. He did find a friend to give him a ride but we had no clue what to do after that.
I went to yahoogroups and vented my frustration, I mean I swear I could write a comedy on the things that can happen in less than two years. No one would believe it though, but it has all happened to me. I got several emails from the group expressing the need to help, one actually wanted to drive over 4 hours to help me out. Talk about feeling loved, my luck was starting to look up. I just kept telling myself, something has to come out of this. We have to be able to get the van home. By the next morning I had four offers to help, when he went to work the next day he found a last minute ride (thank goodness) and called from work to tell me he found a way to get the van home.
Woo hoo! Well the van is now home, it doesn’t run but it is home which means not having to pay a tow truck or getting it out of an impound yard. Next up is looking for a used car that we can afford at least until the van runs again. In the meantime we get to walk to the grocery store…too bad we didn’t have one closer. Thank you Universe, we definitely needed a bit of good luck this week.
