You would think I would know this by now.
But I don’t.
I am still floored when my life goes straight from one “thing” to another.
For instance, with My Girl. Two steps forward, one step back is the norm. I am still taken aback when the “one step back” occurs.
Just as I help my sister out with her “thing” de jour, I get slapped with a new “thing.”
In the middle of a heavy load of wash, the washing machine quit working properly. Read: stopped spinning correctly, leaving me with sopping wet clothes that had clearly been exposed to whatever motor lubricant is used to keep this, um, lubricated and working properly.
After dealing with that, I headed to the computer and…it was frozen solid in place. Getting it to reboot took every ounce of prayer and pounding on the keyboard I could muster. I’ve uninstalled a whole lotta nothing that the kids have installed and I am still getting the blue screen of death.
Coming into the office I get a text from My Girl that her birthday bbq is OFF. Then another it’s on. Then another it’s really OFF. Then on.
And finally, I see a facebook post (true story…facebook IS my source of intel for most things) that our lawn mower has died making it impossible for oldestchildhomefromcollege to mow our yard. Has he never heard of lawn shears and weed eaters?
So here’s the deal. Am I going to let the “always something” derail my walk? Or am I going to continue on, looking up, expecting the mountain to be moved?
I’m choosing the latter, of course.
Now, about the washer, lawn mower and computer, God…
Love you guys.
