When it Rains, It Pours

Ok, just a quick summary of my last few days to try to talk down the spinning of my head. :)

Monday we were iced in and I worked from home for the day. I was so glad to have a nice quiet day working from home.

Tuesday school was called for my son and when my husband went to work we found out why. The entire town was out of power. Needless to say, he was sent home shortly and the boys spent the day at home. On my way home, I noticed that my car was doing strange things such as locking itself repeatedly. John thought maybe something was loose or wet and we didn't think anything of it. Then for a few hours that night, we had to deal with the car alarm going off multiple times for no reason. Well, it appears its problems include: locking itself repeatedly, alarm going off, and dome light not going off. We are to take it in Monday to be looked at.

Also Tuesday, I figured I better call and check the status on my MRI since I had not yet received a time for it. I found out they had not yet scheduled it. ARGH. Anyway, they have it scheduled for next Tuesday so it's not delayed too much. Well, today I was out in that area of town so I figured I'd go ahead and stop and get my bloodwork done. (You have to have bloodwork checked prior to having an MRI. I think I explained that in a previous post.) Apparently the doctor hadn't called in for my bloodwork so I had to wait almost an hour for it to all be sent through. To top it off, the managed to attempt to amputate my arm with this particular one because for two hours afterwards I had no strength in it!!! It's doing better now though and has FINALLY quit bleeding. We shouldn't have to be the ones to tell doctors what we need!!!

Best of all, after about 2 months of relative quiet at work, everyone is having problems this week. We have a new employee that I'm trying to get his laptop set up, we have a printer that has gone out, and I have received somewhere in the vicinity of 40 calls to handle "brushfires" in the past three days. When it rains, it pours, and I guess it this case we get ice as well. :)

  1. You don't have to tell me that. I know exactly what you're talking about. I'm having to take my Jeep in for service tomorrow too for it's power windows, and this is the oh and this is the 3rd time I've had to get these fixed on a 2006 Jeep. I've also been through quite a lot this past week. Just don't feel like writing about it quite yet.
