I just can't get a break
Wednesday, August 2, 2006

Ok so I managed SOMEHOW to pay all my bills this month. I dutifully paid the July mortgage - late, but before the 31 - bringing me up to date. Because of the tires for #1 and the medicine for #2 - I knew I would be overdrawn - but child support would cover it.

Get the child support last night, which my son dutifully put in the overnight deposit box.

Well today, I check the account at 5:35 pm and the idiots at the bank have deposited the money into #1's account. NOT MINE. Which makes no sense as #1 used MY information and put my name on the deposit envelope. So the crux of this matter is that NOW my mortgage payment has been reversed. I realize that all this can be solved with an irate phonecall on the morrow, but it isn't the point.

WHAT IS GOING WRONG? Why am I having so much trouble? How are innocent things that have never gone wrong begore now ALWAYS going wrong? Can someone read my stars? I mean GEEZ.

Can I get a Feng Shui master to come sort me out? Any wiccan's have any pull with mother nature? What is the deal?

Everyone keeps telling me to be positive and that Friday will go my way - but peeps - if a simple deposit can go awry......

And I am not a pessimistic person. I am usually pretty upbeat. And now all I want to do is cry. I don't really even want to post, because I am in such a bad mood all the time.

Well. Shit. Excuse the French.

Now I have to call my mom and see about borrowing the August mortgage, and grocery money. The cats are down to 1 day of food left, and who knows what the 47 kids are eating while I spend all my time making up time off. This also means no 2nd job so less money. I give up. I feel so crummy and useless.

Well...you could always look at the situation as balancing for Friday, as in Friday reallly goes your way but the Universe needs it's debt paid back, so it's skimming off the top right now;)

Still...future sent happy vibes and all that:D

I figure it's not your luck on Friday. With all these people pulling for you it's our luck( and I have incredible luck) so just hang in there

Can't help with anything but good wishes from here, FMF, but here's hoping...

*sends good vibes*

We're all pulling for you.

If it helps, look at it this way: you're not unlike Mal himself, struggling to feed your crew in a 'verse that seems dead set against you. Every day is a negotiation, a miracle, and yet you're still there, still flyin'.

What does that make you?

. . .

Ain't you just?

*hugs* Things'll get better, FMF. My sucky luck seems to run in patches like that, too, but it does turn around. {{{{FMF}}}}}
My prayers are going out for you, and for #2's continued recovery. I know it sounds trite, but try to relax (yeah, this is coming from someone with a nervous stomach (IBS), hypertension and acid reflux so it's grain of salt time) close your eyes, breath in deep through your nose & out through your mouth. It actually does help take some stress out.
Turning off, what my friend's daughter terms as the 'hampster in her brain' is more problematic. I usually do it by playing around here or watching the BDS or the BDM.
Don' forget you got friends here who care about you and are pulling and praying for you. *more hugs*

Sweetie, I know its tough now and I wish I knew the magic words to make it better for you. Just know that we are all praying for you and I know Friday will go your way.

Stay strong and vent all you want...that's what we're here for.
