The title of this post is a direct quote from my next-door neighbor who is a Marine Corps wife (as I used to be). She said this when my son and I saw her outside on our way out to dinner. I told her that he was over helping me fix the furnace. (It's was in the 30s last night). I had to laugh, because not only is she right but she echoed what my best friend told me on the phone last week. "You wait," she said, having been a military member and wife herself, "Now that he's gone, something will break, but you will fix it and survive!"
Please note that I spent many, many days, weeks, and months away from my husband (and sometimes away from my kids, too), because if he wasn't enlisted or traveling with business, I was. This is the first time since I got sick in 2006 that we have been apart like this, though, and I have to admit that it weighs heavily on my mind...all those "what ifs."
Aye, aye, aye. Should I blame my buddy for all this? I'm thinking about it!
- The pilot light went out on the furnace - again. It has happened before and probably will happen again. It's getting frustrating.
- My battery in the MacBook Pro is no longer taking a charge. The battery is a replacement and is less than 90 days old.
- At least one animal has been sick (but is better now, thanks).
- The desktop PC I picked up on Friday from my home office was all ready to go...except they forgot to tell me that they had put a password on it. It took me until 2 p.m. on Monday to finally get the right password from the help desk. Grr.
If all goes well, I'll not have any more emergencies or strange happenings around here and can not only get back to blogging but can get that sample chapter ready to send off. I've never had so many problems getting a book off the ground, but I truly believe that everything happens in its own time. This book will be the same.
And so will all the posts that follow this one.
On the 20th of this month, I will hit my first blog-iversary. I am also only 8 posts from hitting 300. THREE HUNDRED! I think it would be cool for the twain to meet, don't you? Maybe that's what I'll shoot for.
Wish me luck on getting this ship back on course. Maybe if I stopped watching the stock ticker or the debates/political mud-slinging, I might get something done! :-)
Peace - D
