This has been one of those weeks when I keep hearing in my head that song about Mama saying there’d be days like this! And it’s only Tuesday!
Over the weekend, I had burnt my hand with a butane torch. It was one of those stupid things you do that you can’t even believe you did. I choose to blame the wind because it blew at exactly the right time to get my hand. The silver lining in it was that it was my left hand and I’m right handed. But having a blister right on your thumb stinks.
My husband has had a terrible two days at work and we have had two days full of rain resulting in intermittent internet service.
Because of the rain, we ended up with more leaks in the roof. One of these leaks was directly over my bed. The Silver Lining here was that all of my blankets and pillows took the brunt of it instead of the mattress.
Tuesday morning, our son brought me his glasses which were missing one stem. Being that we only have one vehicle, the fix will have to wait until my husband gets home. The Silver Lining here is that I never get rid of his old glasses. He has last year’s pair which are the exact same prescription. Plus, the lady at the eye doctor that handles such things doesn’t come in until 1 p.m.
So I’m trying to look at the bright side. We have a home to live in. I can wash the Linens again and the glasses can be fixed. After all it’s just another day in paradise.
