Miserable Monday Mess.

I'm depressed. Totally and hopelessly depressed. The air conditioning went out in my car. So did some other silly part, which caused it to die at stops and in reverse and sometimes just for the hell of it. $200 to make my car a driveable vehicle again. 700 freakin' dollars to fix the AC, which I do not have. Yep, I am NOT a happy camper today. Not to mention I WAY overslept this morning, so instead of getting tons and tons of stuff done, as planned, I only got a couple of things done: mainly, getting the car fixed and getting Daniel a mouthpiece and other needed items for football.

So, the car is hot and oppressive pretty much every minute you're in it. And it will have to stay that way. I can hardly figure out how I'm going to do all the back-to-school stuff, all the "sending Joseph off to college" stuff, and pay my bills......so the car is definitely NOT getting fixed. Plus Daniel needs new football cleats ASAP AND he needs contacts, because the doctor who did his physical said he needs to be wearing his glasses all the time.....I already cancelled Aaron and Rachael's dental appointments because even with dental insurance it's still about $500 for the needed work.

I feel like crying, I really do. I can't keep up. I never get ahead. I need to renovate my bathroom, my washer and dryer are living on borrowed time.......not to mention all the unexpected expenses Joseph will have at IU. It's almost time for my period, I haven't seen Steven but one evening since July 7......I mean, I just feel so overwhelmed. So now you all know how horrible my life is right now.

Okay, I'm done now.

Awww bummer! Sounds like you need a hug. ()
But look at it this way. You have your health and your kids are GOOD kids! In this day and age, you have so much to be thankful for!! I'm sorry. I know it doesn't keep you cool in that hot car though! :(

I'm bookmarking this post, and whenever I THINK I'm having a rough day, I'm gonna bring it back up and read it. Chin up, kiddo. Hope tomorrow's a better day.

E.Craig - Thanks. It's not really that bad, but it sure did feel like it a few hours ago. Tomorrow will be better. (sigh)

Wallow for a while, then let it go. I find it best not to fight it or it will overwhelm you.

Finn - Thanks. I'm better now. It just hit me all at once.

Sushiboy - You're a sweetie. The sun will come out tomorrow....and heat up my car! Ha, ha.

Crys - No, I'm in southern Indiana...near Louisville. Lots of wonderful humidity to go with the heat. Grrrrrr.....
