Tough Week

It's been a difficult last couple of days.

Yesterday we buried an Aunt that was only 53yo. She died a painful lengthy death from copd/emphysema. I hadnt even gotten out of the funeral when my cell started vibrating non stop.

I was finally able to leave and was checking my phone to see who was so persistent, since everyone knew where I was.

I was calling my hubby back when I passed my son on the road. Hubby says son is needing me because he has sliced his finger/hand open really bad.

So off to the doctor we go. After two doctors offices, 2 hours, 7 stitches and $200 out of pocket later, I collected up the youngest and came home... mentally exhausted.

Today I get up and go to work thinking it's a new day, everything will be fine.

Come home, my basement is flooded, the hot water tank is leaking every where. So as of this very moment, I have no water! Hubby is on his way home and I figure we will be shelling out for a new water heater.

Oh yeah, Sunday my pump on my koi pond went out and that cost me $65.

What else can go wrong? Wait, I asked that this am. Never mind, it can only get better, right?


  1. Sorry to hear about all that's been going on. Here are some good thoughts coming your way!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. What an awful week you are having. It will be better tomorrow. Get a good night's sleep, have a little treat, and tomorrow will look much brighter.

  3. Wow, what a week. :( We had a whole month like that last year. Things will surely start looking up soon.

  4. Lisa,

    So sorry to hear about your terrible week. My mom has COPD/emphazema so I know how one suffers with it, but I can't imagine dying of it at 53.

    I've had the water heater leak a few years ago, but thank God I went down to the basement for something that morning and found it before it caused any damage. You and your family will be in my prayers!

  5. Frankly, that all sucks. Sending a quick prayer your way.

  6. I am so sorry for your loss :(

    I know.. when it rains it POURS and it stinks!!! I went through a LONG spell of that last summer/fall.. and it STUNK!!!

    Hoping your day today is AWESOME!!

  8. Lisa,

    I am so sorry about your aunt. I sure hope your son is on the mend. Those medical bills are awful and now the water heater, koi pump, and keyboard. UGH!

    I sure hope things are much better for you this weekend. You need some sunshine in your life. :-)
