Not Been a Good Week

Remember when I wrote on having car issues? Well, that seems to be just the start of a particularly bad week so far. A couple days ago, I ended up stepping on a stone in a grocery store parking lot and falling to my knees. My ankle is sore from twisting it, got a few bruises and a slightly skinned knee, and the worst part is that now my whole right side is sore. My thigh hurts and having spasms in my lower back. Fun times!

So then the following day, hubby comes home from work and says he is sick with some sort of intestinal virus. He has been puking since yesterday. I don't think I have ever seen him so sick before. He is feeling better now but I am fretting that me or the kids will get it. I pray we don't. Can't afford to miss work with no sick days.

Oh, and today? We have snow! It is coming down hard. So much for just a few snow showers that they said we were supposed to have. I really hope things get better. This is ridiculous! Of course, these things are not as bad as some people have it. I try to keep that in mind but I guess I can vent a little, right?

Thanks for listening! This week has not been good for writing. Trying to play catch up!

That photo is not mine but I loved it and thought it would put me in a better mood. Cute!

That is a really crummy week - I don't blame you for complaining.

I hope things get better for you soon. Maybe the soreness will go away soon.

Sorry to hear about your bad week. Maybe things will pick up for you now.

Just what you don't need - bad luck and a heavy snowfall all in the same week. Bummer!

The pic is cute. I hate car problems. Then sickness on top of it. Not good! Ugh! Hope he is on the mend and things are getting better. Also, here's hoping neither you or the kids get it.

Nothing wrong with getting mad at the annoying. Sorry about your knee pain.

What a crummy week! I had a rough week last week and this week is not the best. However, I do know others that are worse off than I am and so I am thankful for my week.

Awful week. Give that sprain a rest, take care and hope the next week is better for you.

Holy crap, when it rains, it pours, sometimes! Or in your case, when it snows, it blizzards! The good part is that all that stuff is just temporary--stomach flu is over in 48 hours, max, and your injuries are also something that can heal in a few days with some rest and care. Just remember RICE--rest, ice, compression and elevation!

And the snow is still coming down off and on. Icky stuff!

So far, so good! Things are going better, except for the car problem which still isn't fixed.

Ours stopped for tonight. We will have black ice in the morning. So glad I don't have to commute anymore.

How do you get around? Do you have a second car?

That is a terrific photograph that you selected as illustration for your posting.
