Murphy's Law, that is.
This past week has been ruled by Murphy, pesky little feller.
There was an episode with our Ford 250 truck, Bessie, where the Chilton led us astray and the DIY spirit may have cost us a transmission.
In other vehicle news; the new (to us) Toyota we got to replace our old wagon - has stirred up a Title issue that might have us spending a fortune in phone calls to Arkansas and on a tedious treasure hunt for missing paperwork.
There is also my embarrassing gaffe in the blogosphere. I was so kindly presented with an award and proudly displayed said award but, failed to follow through with the rules of the award...
1. Put the logo on your blog or post
2. Nominate 10 blogs that show gratitude or great attitude or both
3. Be sure to link your nominees within your post
4. Let them know they have received this award by commenting on their blog
5. Share the love and link this post to the person whom you received your award from"
I didn't just ignore that part, honest. I have fleeting and sometimes few moments with the computer. I grab the time I can and often take a day or two to finish a post. On the award post day, I had intended to finish it up with my nominees, for some reason I scheduled the post instead of just saving it as a draft...so, the post appeared in all it's selfish glory. I forgot to remember...um...excuses, excuses. In trying to rectify the situation I found that all the blogs I thought to nominate had already received this award recently, and now? I wouldn't be surprised if the award given to me for gratitude and attitude were rescinded.
Then, there is my annoying overuse of ellipsis in the previous paragraph.
...and the dozen other little things that went askew.
It has simply been a crazy mixed up week, nothing soul crushing nor insurmountable, just a little humbling. It actually makes me realize how fortunate we really are. I have this great family that gets through with humor, hard work and comfort food. It also helps me understand that in the midst of things going wrong, so much is going right that I have to thank my lucky stars.
...and Murphy, I'm sure I'll be seeing you around.
