Ok world, do you hear me? Dang it!! I've HAD ENOUGH!! Enough I say!! Enough!!!!!! Here's what's happened since my last update... Yesterday hubby went to go see his mom at his sisters house and was going to stay the night BUT thanks to problems here, our septic got backed up, and left me a (ugh) mess. I called him and told him about it and did what he told me to do and nothing worked so he had no choice but to come home. Called the septic company this morning to come and drain our septic tank, thanks to all this freaken rain we've been having, it's over flowed our tank and drain field. NICE!! The company came and drained our tank and I've gotten most of that mess cleaned up, well, two out of three bathrooms are clean. I'll do the other in a few minutes for I need a darn break. The other thing is, on the way up to his sister’s house, he took my car because it's cheaper in gas than his truck is. He calls me to tell me that my car cut off on him twice on the way up there, electricity and all and then started back up again only for it to cut off a few minutes later. (Does someone think we have a million dollars in the bank?) He pulled over and checked everything out and found nothing wrong. After that, it ran fine the rest of the way and on his way back home too. Phew! Thank God! The last but not least, I've been having problems with my teeth for years now since I've been diagnosed with lupus. The disease has been attacking my teeth to the point that I barely have any left. I have a bunch of posts in the front, I think 7 and the rest are gone which I have to wear partials to eat. I don't have any back teeth on top except for two implants that my dentist in Arkansas gave me and most of my front teeth are broken. Well a few days ago, one of the posts on the bottom fell out. No reason what so ever, just fell out in my mouth. Now my partials won't fit properly but enough to eat but I get food stuck in that little pocket and I have to dig it out because it hurts. My insurance doesn't kick back in till May 1st so I can't afford to see a dentist until then. So I have to deal with this until then. All this and dealing with my hubby's situation with his mother and drama queen sister. Now the bomb shell, hubby found out that his mother has roughly 2 weeks to live. I'm hoping to send him back up there to spend what ever time she has left with her. If any of you need the background on his mother and the going ons, here's all the links to all the discussions I've posted so it won't be hard to find. http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1434990.aspx http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1437200.aspx http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1448818.aspx http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1461979.aspx Like I said in another discussion, I'm worried about my nephew because his SUV was repossessed and I'm worried about a friend who is going through a terrible divorce. Just like the old saying, when it rains it pours!! I want to run away!! Anybody want to go with me??????

I love you. You know that right? I do so worry about you too. So yeah - let's run away together. I've got the umbrella! LOL I say keep the hubby home, bury the relatives alive in the septic tank and call it a day. That's what I'm going to do with soon to be ex if he cuts off one more avenue of revenue on me. Like you I've had enough too. So you're not alone my friend. And you are always in my thoughts.

Hey sweets, it does it because it can. But I spit in it's eye and keep on keeping on because I intend to have the last laugh! Are you with me? Of course you are. With friends like us we can't help but overcome!

OH my goodness, I read your other entries that you left the links for and this one....WOW!! I really feel bad for you. It just goes to show that no matter what I may be facing there is always someone out there who has it so much worse off than I do. I wish there were something I could do for you, well I know what I can do, I don't know if you pray, but I will certainly be praying for you. I hope that somehow, sometime soon, some of this stress will be lifted from you and everyone else involved in these different situations that are going on in your life. Keep your head up and know that you will make it through!! I will continue to pray that God comforts you and protects you through all of this. I will also pray for your husband..may you both be blessed with peace! But as for the running away, I feel like doing that sometimes too..maybe I will go with you..lol Take care, hugs to ya, I hope you have a great day!

Stressed - to the max, that I am!
nelly, you're a doll! Thank you so much for your kind words!! Yes I pray and if I pray any harder my head will pop off. LOL Just kidding. I know it's probably a trial thing to test my faith and boy is it ever a test but I'm not going anywhere and He knows that but gosh, I wish He'd lighten the load some. I know this dark cloud will pass eventually but I don't know when. When it does pass, I pray that it goes away away and not pass on to anybody else. It's a heavy load to bear.

I know exactly what you mean when you say if you pray any harder your head will pop off..lol I have been in situations where you just feel like he isn't hearing ya and you are praying so much and so deeply that you would expect it to be answered right then and there, but we have to remember prayers are answered in Gods time...I know that sometimes we just wish he would speed His time up a little. I do believe this is certainly a test of your faith, and in the end, if you stay strong in your faith and walk with God, you will be rewarded, and trust me, I do know that is all so much easier said than done. Keep your head up and a smile on your face...and in your heart because he knows if it is true or not.. =)

I know what you're saying. I do the exact same thing. Another bad thing happens and I just laugh. Because otherwise I don't think I could handle it. I'm sure people thought I was insane when I laughed so hard the other day when my car got backed into in the school parking lot for the third time this week. The police officer that filed the report certainly thought so.

I remember your discussion the other day regarding your hubbys Mum & step Dad too, I think. I am sorry his mum only has two weeks to live, but I think you were both suspecting this. Lets hope your hubby can spend some time with her. Regarding septic tanks. When I was a child, we only had septic tank, & byes, they are a nuisance. Having to pump the stuff out regularly & all the smell. What a mess for you to have to deal with. I can fully appreciate the issue of the cost of gas for yours & your hubbys car. Lets hope better times are coming for you.

Thanks Jenny, I hope for better times too as you do for I know you're going through a trying time too. How about we pray for each other? We both are in need of better times but then again, when better times come, we're more appreciative of them, right?

Hi mummymo!! Yes things have gone haywire on me and I don't know why!!!!!! LOL Oh you can ask anything you want anytime you want!! Don't be afraid so ask away!! His step dad is all bruised up all down one side and he has a fractured hip. He had a heart attack and is why he fell. He's in a nursing home for the next month or so for rehab but I doubt he'll walk again because he's up in age but only time will tell.

Sometimes these things happen Cats and dogs which are not in our control. We can just rant and rave about them and smile through it all. As you said in another post just try and get some humor through all this. Otherwise you'll get into depression. You have been facing that much problems lately. Please do take a breath darling and help your husband to face this. However old one's parents are losing one is very difficult and that has been my experience in life. All the best

We should move to Canada! Where the medical is free! Well for the most part it is anyway. A lot better than it is here in the US. I do agree though that life does carry on no matter if it's fun or not but gosh, sometimes I wonder why such a load to carry?

I will come with you hun, we will leave it all behind and just go and have some fun in the sun somewhere for a while. I have been following all your discussions and I cannot believe it is still getting worse for you, you are dealing with some real s*** right now and I wish I could give you more moral support to help you through. I am so sorry about your hubbys mum too. It always pours for me to when things go wrong, well actually it does not pour it does the other rude word. I will send you all the positive thoughts I have in me, might not do much but maybe it will, take care of yourself though. xx

Just a thought - I'm no mechanic, but not a total auto idiot either --- How fast was your hubby driving in what kind of car? Most newer cars have a governor in them that is either attached to the tachometer (measures engine rpm) or the speedometer. If he hit the limit on either one of those it shuts down the car for a couple seconds until it gets back under a preset mark, then it starts running again. I had a car that would do that to me, but my speedometer was off by about 30mph on the freeway - so instead of shutting down at 110mph - it would do it at 70mph. Scared the crap out of me until I figured out what was going on.

WOW! Honey, sorry for all that. We'll have to pray for your husband, you, and his mother. Well, I must say disease which his mom has is terrible...alzhemizers is terrible. Then all your problems. You must pray and tell yourself it's going to get better. Well, you are right, sometimes things just don't go our way. You have to pray and have faith that God with come in and save you. I remember when I had to go to the hospital. It was all crazy, and I didn't like it at all. Now, this time it's just that a lot is happening. The rain will go away, and the sun will shine to bring out a rainbow. Have a wonderful day and God Bless you and your family. Pablo
