Some Things...

Okay, so sometimes life comes at you full force. Last week was one of those weeks. In short:

Monday: Washing machine breaks down mid-cycle. I go to the laundromat. For any of you who have to do this regularly, my condolences. I realize how blessed and fortunate I've been for the past 15 years having my own washer and dryer.

Tuesday: Washing machine repairman says it'll cost $500 to fix the washer.

Also Tuesday: The ice maker goes on the fritz (again). Pull out fridge (I've actually cleaned behind it recently, so this isn't as disgusting as you might be thinking!), and inspect the line. Everything looks good, and things go well, if not a little wet because that water line wasn't all the way off...

Wednesday: Husband's car won't shift out of park. Watch YouTube videos. Go to automotive store and buy part. Begin drive home...

Then this:





Thursday/Friday: Talk to a billionty people about the car accident, the insurance, medical appointments, rental cars, etc. etc. We were in the car alone (no kids, thank goodness!), and we walked away. There's the normal aches and pains and stuff, but all in all, we are alive and healthy.

This week, we're going on vacation. I'm not quite ready for it because of the firestorm that was last week, but mentally, I'm already there. Ha!

Have you had weeks like this? And hey, isn't this what we do to our characters in our novels? "Hey, you think this is bad?? Just wait five more pages... *cackle*" I mean, seriously.

Yucky! I've totally had those weeks. In fact, I feel as if something like is going to come my way very soon. Hopefully your post doesn't jinx that!

Natalie Aguirre said...

Yes, I just went through a week like that too. First one car died and had to be towed and a few days later our other car died and we had to replace the battery.

Glad no one was hurt in the accident. Have a great vacation.

JeffO said...

That's a pretty nasty looking car. Glad you and your husband are all right. Enjoy the vacation!

Karen Adair said...

Oh heavens, that sounds like my week as well. You sound as positive as I'm trying to be right now. ENJOY THAT VACATION! Hugs to you and yours!!!!

Tasha Seegmiller said...

I was reading along, thinking boo, boo, boo, what the @#%*! Glad you guys are okay? Hope this week is better, because if not, you might want to consider investing in a bubble or something.

Michelle D. Argyle said...

I heard about your accident and I'm so, so, so glad you are okay. And yes, we do this crap to our characters all the time on a much higher level, even! But that's fiction. I'm glad I don't live inside fiction. :)

Veray said...

We had a week like that too. What is it with washers and cars breaking down at the same time. I'm glad you are okay. So sad for your car. Is it salvageable or do you get to do what we just did and be forced to find a new car.

Jemi Fraser said...

Those kinds of things always come in groups! So glad you're all okay. Enjoy your well deserved vacation :)

Jess said...

Oh man, I knew about the accident, but the laundry thing puts your week even more firmly in the "crazy/unfair" category. So sorry for the bad week~ hope vacation is WONDERFUL to make up for it :)

Kim Webb Reid said...

So sorry, Elana! Stay on vacation an extra week. You deserve it.

Jessie Humphries said...

Have you talked to a personal injury attorney? Just sayin'. I hope vacation is good. Wanna go play Bingo? I need to email you.

Dawn Malone said...

Sorry about the nasty week. Glad you and your hubby are ok. Enjoy that vacation!

Angela Brown said...

Yikes! I'm so glad you walked away from that accident because the poor car obviously did not. :-(

Vacation time will be good for you to de-frag given all you've been through from the previous week. Please enjoy it to the best of your ability :-)

Shallee said...

Good gravy! I'm sorry, Elana, what a horrid week. So glad you're okay. The plot twists of life aren't always fun.

Nicole said...

Oh no! I'm glad everyone's okay. I've definitely had weeks like that. Your line about this being what we do to our characters all the time made me laugh. ;)

Peggy Eddleman said...

Dude. We should NEVER have to go through what we put our characters through. So sorry your week was like a book! And I'm glad you're okay. You're really going to need that vacation!

Kimberley Griffiths Little said...

YIKES, girl! Don't do that again! :-) XOXO

Taffy said...

With that kind of week, it can only go up from here, right?? Have a fantastic vaca!

Julie Dao said...

Ditto what everyone else said - SO glad you guys are okay. HUGS.

Kim Van Sickler said...

OMG! After a week like that you need a vacation! Usually my calamities are spread out--like one a week--so I can't ever totally relax, but I'm not losing my mind.

Kelly Polark said...

Oh, Elana! That is not a good week!!!

You really do need a vacation! I hope you forget your last week's worries and enjoy it!

Christine Fonseca said...

I'm so sorry about the rough week, and so glad you are going on vacation. Sounds like the down time will do you good. HUGS

June G said...

Dang, girl! You did have it rough. I've been there. I think we probably all have. Your break is arriving just in time. Enjoy it. You've earned it! Try not to think of the past week. Live in the moment of your vacation.

steve said...

I hope you enjoy your weekend after this rough week. enjoy your vacation.

Donna K. Weaver said...

*hugs* My, heck, Elana. Yeah. Vacation could be just what you need. I hope it's a good one.

Michelle Merrill said...

Oh man! That looks horrible. I'm so sorry! This is Michelle Merrill and I met you at the restaurant right before your vacation. I hope you got to relax!

Matthew MacNish said...

Thank god you're both okay!

Caryn Caldwell said...

Oh, wow! What an awful week you had! I'm so sorry. Sounds like you really deserved that vacation. I hope you've been able to relax and enjoy yourself, and that things go better when you're home.

Janet Johnson said...

Holy Cow! You had a week and a half!! Glad you walked away from that because THAT, my friend, is scary stuff.

I may have had weeks similar in nature. And thank goodness I'm a writer so I can just remember that it is ALL book fodder for the future. Saved me from losing it many a time. :) Hope the weeks since then have been better!
