When it rains, it pours

Do you ever feel like when one bad thing happens to you a lot of bad things seem to come at once? I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason and while it may suck, we will survive. That is my feeling right now. I am so excited for the Holidays and spending time with family and friends, but we have a few mood dampeners lately.

I took my car in last week and had the 90,000 mile service and other various things that needed to be done at that time. Well most of a paycheck later my car is up to speed. As hard as it was to hand over that money I know it was for our good because the car should last a long time if it is taken care of and that is what we are banking on. It just hurts at the holidays because we will now have to curb some things.

On Friday we made the decision that Meredith will be fitted for braces for her legs. We had been talking to her therapist a lot this past week about moving Meredith up to the next room in daycare to hopefully help push her a long in the standing and walking department and the other developmental areas that she is missing out on by being in a "baby" room. After much discussion and thinking we decided to do the braces as they will try to retrain her muscles to work properly when standing and balancing as opposed to moving her straight into a walker. She will be fitted for them tomorrow and hopefully will have them before Christmas. Also she should be moved up to the next class as soon as she gets them.

Then on Saturday Bill dropped me off in Buford to have lunch with some friends while he and Meredith ran some errands and he was rear-ended. Meredith and Bill are fine, the car is not. He had to have it towed and got a rental car this morning. We don't even know what the damage is at this point. Thank the Lord Lenora was nice enough and willing enough to cancel her appointment and take us all home. That is why she is my best friend!

So needless to say, now is not the time for us to be playing the lottery. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
