Friday Frustrations

ConversationsWithMoms:Every day Conversations with a Mom Blog

Well I haven't done Friday Frustrations in a while because honestly I've been trying to have a more positive outlook on things and not think about the frustrating and bad things. You know the old/new 'positive attracts positive... negative attracts negative'... and it's been going pretty well.... up to now. So here I am....

This week has been so horribly frustrating. We made it through the recent Mercury Retrograde with very lil issues... but it seems like they all hid in a closet and just waited until this week to jump out and say "BOO!"

My sons vehicle was taken away last week.... a long and complicated story that I won't go into.... a family matter on his father's side (my ex). So we've tried to just go with the flo... driving him back and forth to work. He also lost his cell phone service... another long and complicated issue having to with his now ex girlfriend. So I share mine with him for now until he can get his turned back on. We were coping with the issues.

Well on Tuesday my husband's car broke down. Now I'm very thankful that it broke down one street over so it was easy to push on home and we didn't have to get it towed! But that puts us down to one vehicle for three people to use. Since hubby and son both work at the same place they've been able to ride together some... but they don't always work the same hours.... and next week will be a huge issue if we don't get that car running. At this point we don't know what's wrong or how much it will cost to fix it.... we should know tomorrow. Our neighbor across the street is a mechanic and is looking at it. Hubby thinks it might be a $400 repair... which if that's the case it won't be getting fixed. We just bought this POS a few months ago for $700 and then spent another $200 to fix some issues. We're not spending another $400 to fix the POS! So cross your fingers and toes and arms and legs..... light candles and send some cheap car repair energy this way please! We really need this vehicle.

But that's not all... today was horrible. Steffie was the worst behaved she has ever been in her life. And I was not in the best mood either.... so every lil thng she did just pushed me a lil closer to losing it.

And on top of that my e-mail had a brain fart.... at least that's what I call it... and ruined my day completely. I use gmail along with Incredimail.... and occasionally it does this. I have at least 100 subfolders inside of main folders for my business and yahoo groups etc.... and all of the subfolders just come out of the main folders and all of my message rules that tell them where to go get messed up. So it took me the whole day to get it all put back. It's very frustrating.... I don't know why it does it.... but today was just not a great day for it.

So if you e-mailed me and I haven't e-mailed back that's why.

Hopefully tomorrow will be a much better day... and way more relaxed.

A Lil Enchanted,

Oh honey, I feel for you. Sometimes it's just all too much. Try to give yourself some quiet "me time", and have some pampering. {{hugs}}

A good day to get in the car and scream out loud with the windows up.

Or no car - scream into a pillow.

I've had many of those kind of days and it does help.

How frustrating. I hate hate hate car issues. I think that first of all they shouldn't be so expensive to buy, and they def. shouldn't be so stinking expensive to fix. I hope things look up next week!

I hope today is a much better day. I have had a week like you did! I am exhausted from it. By the way check your email there is something waiting there for you. I promise it will make you happy!

Sometimes it good to let your frustrations out so it doesn't stay bottled in.

Good luck with the car issues and I hope it gets fixed for minimal cost.
