Perspective


So I've had a very bad week. Blown out tire Monday (which luckily I got replaced, though it was a close call due to the timing). Hell day at work Tuesday. Last night, got home late from a memorial service to find that the cat had knocked my cell phone into the sink, which was full of water at the time, so it's dead and all my numbers are lost. Went to call the other half of my share plan on the house phone, only to discover it had been turned off, which means no internet (this is being done from the computer lab at school)... The whole week has been piling up rather unpleasantly...

And then today, I get a call from my mom in law. The girls have a new pediatrician, had their first appointments today. She mentioned Big Girl's snoring, and the doc checked it out.

My baby has a "mass" in her throat.

In the roughly 6 hours between the time she told me this, and the time we got the all-clear after a visit with the specialist, I really gained a lot of perspective on my so-called problems. Big Girl is fine, she will likely have to have the thing removed but it is not malignant and won't be an issue. But suddenly I'm not quite so freaked out over the bills. Yes, things are in danger of being turned off. Yes, I'm going to be VERY inconvenienced with the lack of a cell phone until I can replace it. But I have my girls, and they're all in good health, and Lord, what more could I ask for?!?!?

it does help you remember what is important doesn't it

we are flat broke, our bills are pilling although we still have a couple of weeks before there is any risk of disconnection we are just going to be cutting it close...

BUT we do have money in the bank, thing is I wont be touching it for the bills, we can cover those eventually...

the money in the bank will be staying there, we have just enough that in under 3 weeks when SD flies to see her mum, if she refuses to put her on the flight back here against SD's wishes, she isn't stuck there until we can get the money together for another ticket.....

if the court says she can come back she will be coming back that very day!

her mum will be spitting chips if she does and she finds out that the money which pay's for her daughter to come back here after she missed her booked flight, will be every dollar of childsupport she has paid since SD moved in here!

I just had to make a comment before going to bed...

What else could you ask for?

In my opinion?

Nothing my dear...

Coz at the end of the day and from what I can see, the girls are the your sunshine, everything else is doable and manageable...

Money comes and goes... the way I see, the only thing those girls need is they're mom, everything else is a bonus... and I think mummy is doin' a pretty good job good week or bad week
