The Best Laid Plans

My homeschooling plans are going fine. Now if the rest of the moving parts could stop causing problems, I'd be grateful. On Friday morning, I sent the three year old upstairs to get dressed. A bit later, he came down in his birthday suit, crying and with a Lego up his nose. I could see it, but it was soon evident that I couldn't get it out. So, I got him and everyone else dressed and out the door and we headed off to the pediatrician. She couldn't get it out either.

So we headed from there to the ENT at the Children's Hospital. On the way there, whilst getting into the turning lane, I scraped the side of another car and broke his taillight. I've never been in an accident before. No one was hurt. I was moving very slowly and the damage to both cars was minimal, but I was still shaken up and crying.

My husband came and took the little one to ENT, while I got the accident and dealing with the police taken care of. The Lego came out with special teeny ENT tweezers.

On Sunday, we went to Mass, had a lovely chat with friends. One person gave us a belated new baby meal and another gave us a cobbler (they must have known life was not so smooth). We got in the van to go home and it wouldn't start. The battery was fine. The starter motor had died.

And this morning? My e-mail account started sending spam hither, thither and yon. And now that it's sent so much spam out into the world, Gmail won't even let me send messages out explaining, apologizing or anything else.

I think I need a hole to crawl into -- preferably with copious amounts of merlot.

Oh no! I hadn't heard about the van yet. You need a break!

If you're anything like me, merlot isn't going to cut it at this point. You need to add in a nice smoked gouda and some spicy dark chocolate, too :( My sympathies.

Yes, some good dark chocolate would be an especially good addition to my hole in the ground.

Oh wow - rough indeed. I got spammed by you but I could see what it was and deleted it. I've been spammed by another local blogger in the last week as well - same thing - so you are not alone!

Diane said...

Oh my. Individually any one incident would be upsetting, but all in one week? I agree - chocolate, merlot and I'd throw in a massage as well.

Ugh. :(

When it rains, it pours! If it makes you feel any better, I will say I am in awe your home schooling plans!

Oh no! I wish I lived near you so that I could send some Merlot and food. Read my post today about poop and Target and feel marginally better. ;)
