I had this whole rant written, that I’m pretty sure was mostly influenced by fever and cough meds. I deleted the rant, and am going to stick to the bare bones as best I can.
The Boy was in a car accident yesterday morning. Fortunately, no one was hurt. However the car’s radiator is cracked. It’s currently in the shop, and we’re waiting to hear what the estimate is and what insurance is going to cover.
I’m scared, frustrated, and overwhelmed. Since we got married two years ago it’s felt like we’ve become life’s punching bag. I know we have a lot to be thankful for, that we’re far better off than quite a few people. I’m just tired of the constant barrage of “other shoes” that keep dropping. I’ve shared a little of our struggles, but kept many parts of the last two years very private, because frankly it’s not something I’ve been prepared to share. I still need more distance from the events to be able to write about them with a clear head. Hindsight and time are valuable things when it comes to learning lessons.
I’m not sure how to end this, so I ask for your prayers and good thoughts. And if you’re feeling really beat up by life, please know you’re not alone.
