Took another bullet this week, more like a rapid-fire succession of kicks to the face.
Starting with a day of being locked out of the house, having to purchase a potty on the road after very public argument with a 2 year old, lost my phone in the process, found my phone, spent 9 hours on the road watching DVD's and awaited husband without phone to return at his leisure. Last weekend, 3 days post lock out, spent 3 hours waiting in the car for rude people looking at our house; said people had very rude children who tramped their boots throughout my house. Rude people returned for a second showing yesterday, spent 1.5 hours in my house, I spent 1.5 hours again in the car (with dog and child). Rude people chose another house because their agent said ours was "alright" but over-priced. No coincidence they purchased a less expensive house in a crappy neighborhood. Can't we just state the obvious? They are broke as hell and couldn't afford our home, so they spent the entire weekend dreaming in my living room?
Whew. How many favors, how often do I have to go out of my way for someone, how often do I have to build everyone else up, how many times can I just tighten up my boots and move forward?
I feel like my moto should be "buck up little camper", while most other people seem to have a balance of positive and negative. 26 years of creating good karma, only to get kicked when I'm down repeatedly.
Perhaps I should just focus on the good things happening AROUND me, not necessarily happening TO me. I shall try that this week.
Axel and I are taking a much needed vacation to Florida next Tuesday. Aside from major anxiety of getting him there alive, surviving his public bathroom phobia and not allowing people to shoot flames at me and my crazy child on the plane, it should be a great break from stress and the town that I feel so stuck in.
When I return, the house will be sold I'm sure, the snow will be melted and the cycle of bad luck will be broken. Zip code rule right? It can't follow me to the southern states and back...can it?
