The Worst Week Yet

So as most of you know, the husband is away. And apparently EVERYTHING seems to happen when he's not here...let me try to explain:

Last Tuesday I found out his Truck (my only source of transportation at the time) was hit parked outside of our house sometime around lunch. I wasn't there because I normally take my bicycle to and from work.

Wednesday afternoon, I finally got a rental truck. Call this strangely ironic, but the truck they gave me was the EXACT SAME ONE that my husband had, just a lot "younger" version. Color you ask? EXACT SAME COLOR (red).

I saw this as a sign of good luck, but honestly I should have seen it coming.  

On my normal Thursday night grocery/shopping runs into Target, Walgreens, Walmart and Festival...someone backed up to the rental truck. and left the truck with a dented bumper. Great.

Another claim filed. Then Friday my place of work informed me that they have to cut back on my normal 40 hours, in half. Could it get any worse?

The insurance agency called and informed me that our truck is indeed a total loss. I could cry. All the while, having VERY limited communication with my husband while he does a ton of live fires and such for his AT training, leaving me to deal with all these claims, solo.

So now, I need to find more part time work to make ends meet. I wanted to go back to school, but that will have to wait. We will be selling our "baby" that we just recently got in March. I tear up every time I think about it

Things really need to start looking up, bad things happen in three's right? So this ends my string? I'm done? I sure hope so, I could just crawl into bed and stay there for what seems like eternity right now...


  1. Oh girl, I'm so so sorry to hear you've have such a ruff week. I hope things start to get better for you. It does always seem that things go horribly wrong when our husbands are away. Hang in there girl, it can only go up from here.

  2. Oh gosh! I'm so sorry!! I hope everything gets better for you. Hugs!

  3. Oh no! Not a fun week at all! I hope things start looking up soon!
