"These things never do happen at good times, do they?"
I was chatting with someone at church today and naturally my job situation and the trip to Virginia came up. I've had people say it to me both ways now. Apparently some people think it is misfortunate to lose a job and have a family situation arise in the same week. Others think it is convenient for me to not have to miss work so that I can travel.
Personally, I have no preference for either one. I'd prefer to just never lose a job, and to never have to attend another funeral.
However, having a yucky toilet overflow, (and then thinking I stopped it just to find out several hours later I was horribly mistaken), seep into the carpets and through a closet wall, and then spending several very late night hours on my hands and knees using the mini-wetvac, definitely came at an inconvenient time. My back and neck are killing me! I've got the heating pad on, and a large dose of ibuprofen coursing through me. Hopefully it will get better quickly, because there is no way I can handle 32 hours in the car in this kind of back pain!
