Really?

On top of the spiral that our life was plunged into a few weeks back (and all that I have had to deal with since), I've had to literally dig out my Big Girl Pants and personally put the kibosh on people acting stupid.

*Friends with seemingly good intentions becoming vulturous. Like, going through my house, taking things off my walls and offering money for them.

Really?

*Boys wanting to play with my husband's toys, borrow his things and rifle through his belongings. Seriously, DH's RV barn turned into a hang out.

Really?

*People emailing my friends (that they are not acquainted with) on the side wanting details.

Really?

Not to mention the very night since his passing, the new, big TV stopped working, my laptop monitor displays images upside down, the husky suddenly has a big lump on her head, one of the minpins had an allergy come back (his eye swells and he gets bumps all over) and a sprinkler cover thingy was overflowing and water came flooding out.

Really?

Last night my throat started to itch and my head feels like it's under water. Sure enough, I'm getting sick.

Really?

The good news is, I'm anxiously awaiting my one time survivors payment from Social Security for $255...

Really.

Oy.

I don't think there's much more to say.

Hang in there, Mel. You're amazing.

Jan said...

Ah Melissa, when it rains it pours. Something to look forward to? Rainbows that come from the rain, the promise of good things to come. You just have to look for them! {{{{hugs}}}}

Some of those things (maybe all) don't even make sense. Taking things off the walls? WTH? I can't imagine. This only deepens the urge I've had to swoop down to CO to give you and those kids a big, giant hug, and then swoop away again before I become a hugging, smothering nuisance. I wish I could make it all go away.
BIG HUG!

Claire said...

I'm so sorry, hang in there...

Lavender Luz said...

I'm most concerned about the health of you, your dogs and your electronics.

I'm most peeved about the boorish behavior you're having to deal with. Unconscionable!

I am so sorry all of this has happened. So sorry.

Shana said...

Wow, taking things off the walls. What the h*ll is up with that?? Sorry about everything!!

Sara said...

I wish I had some comforting words, but all I can say is I'm sorry :(

Sunday said...

Mrs. Gamgee said...

I concur with all the WTH statements... how dare they?! Wishing I could kick them in the shins for you.

Physical illness is not at all surprising given everything you have been through. Hoping you recover quickly....

Ugh, I can only imagine... I'm praying this all passes soon, and that your family lands on its feet. I too wish I lived closer so that I could actually help out a bit (it's a bit of a drive from NC).

Melissa, Multi-Tasking Mama said...

Getting sick is the manifestation of the physical and emotional exhaustion you have been experiencing in these last few weeks. I am so sorry and continue to pray for you. {{{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}}}}}}

Judy said...

Oh, Mel. Please (wish I could underline and boldface here) take care of yourself. I continue to keep you in my thoughts. (((Hugs!)))

Kristin said...

Oh honey, that's just too much. {{{Hugs}}}

cheekyradish said...

wow... people have so MUCH nerve. I'm so sorry for all you have been through and are going through. My thoughts are with you, my dear...

Gena said...

(((MELISSA)))

I hope that people are behaving a lot better. If not, I know a cousin of yours and I can just scissor kick all of them :)

Penelope said...

We must have the same relatives! As we were leaving the hospital room after being told my dad was dying- my cousin asked me what I was going to do with his tv! Really!

Hugs!
