When it rains, it pours, and then...

this has been a very crappy week.
(and it's only Tuesday!!)


I have had the worst car trouble.

Let's just say,
the car I was driving, has died.

When I say died,
I mean it broke down at a stop light in the middle of the road.
and I was freaking out and scared and by some miracle, it moved just barely in order for me to get it to the side of the road.

The clutch went out.

That was the car I was driving.
The car that is currently under my name,
that I have a loan under,
has been kidnapped/stolen.

It's a long story though and I really don't want to go into it
(mostly because I would be really negative and mean about the suspect...and I don't want to go there...she was a 'friend' of my moms.)

I am currently hitching rides from my parents and others.

sounds pathetic right?
it is.

Okay so back to the point of this post--

I was on the verge of tears tonight after work.
I had gotten a ride home from my parents (who had just been out searching for my stolen car :'( )
I was realizing that I don't know WHEN I will get my car back
I was realizing that I will not be going out this weekend.
all the while knowing that I can't just go get another car, because I already have a LOAN under my name.

I was pretty upset.
I was on the verge of tears,
when I got on my computer. (which is also breaking down...not sure how much longer it's going to work).

It all seemed to happen at once
I had emails, facebook wall posts/messages and all together just a lot of good things from people I love.

Then I started realizing what GOOD things have happened this week.
I passed my math class.
I wasn't cancelled from work.
I was blessed to have the most AMAZING family become a part of my life through adoption.
(seriously. I'm not kidding. I'm SO lucky)
((well, that didn't just happen this week, but they have all done things (even Avery's Aunts, and Grandma) this week that have helped tremendously with my mood/sanity))

even though I'm stranded,
and have to use my parents and their cars, (and I'm 20. yes, 20. pathetic)
and even though my credit is in the hands of someone that could care less,

I'm blessed.
and that's really all the matters.

Now excuse me while my little sister and I go rent a chick flick and eat a gallon of ice cream.
She had a bad day too...and even though we're both blessed, Ice cream and a chick flick won't hurt. ;)
(apart from the weight gain. Don't worry, we are aware of this...!)
