Wistful Wednesday

The Continuing Saga of My Life

Welcome to the new episode in The Continuing Saga of My Life. When last you joined me, I was dealing with the ongoing medical issues that have been plaguing my younger daughter for some time now. She was scheduled to go in for surgery on her back on March 16th, but the surgery was put off indefinitely when they discovered other issues while she was under sedation. Issues that need to be dealt with before they can reschedule the surgery. Issues that require many more trips to doctors, specialists, and the dentist. What I might not have mentioned, however, is that this is when my car decided not to be an active participant in my life any longer.

This is just a little inconvenient. No car, appointments twenty minutes away. Not a good combo. Somehow, however, I have been managing to get to these appointments (thank you, my friends!), but the annoyance factor is still high. You see, I am used to being the one who takes other people to their appointments, to run their errands, etc., so it is very difficult for me to ask for help from others. I don't like being an imposition on others and I can't help but to feel like one. I know they wouldn't offer if they didn't want to do it, but still...not a good position for me to be in. Especially considering that I hate waiting for others to come for me; I am not very patient in that respect. Besides, I like the convenience of having my own car and being able to come and go as I please. I like being independent.

As a result, I am desperately trying to get a new car. I am thisclose to sealing the deal, but I am being tripped up by credit issues. I either need to raise a bigger deposit (about $3,000) or find someone who can co-sign a loan for me. I am working feverishly to make one of these things happen so I can get the car soon - it won't be long before I need to get my daughter home from college for the summer, too. So I am sending this wish out into the Universe: Please (higher power), grant my wish, my need, for a new car so I can fulfill the needs of my family once again. Amen.

Tune in next week for the next chapter in The Continuing Saga of My Life. Maybe I'll have some good writing news to tell you then. Or the week after...Fingers crossed.

Remember, God never gives you more than you can handle.

Being car-less sucks (I once went through three cars in two years) but it also humbles you and makes you realize who your true friends are.

After a year of unreliable transportation, we were presented with our current van. Not a new one, but it gets me where I need to go (most of the time, anyway!).

Molly, as ever, you shine a light in my life and help me to look at things differently. Right now, all I can see is that i'm a burden on other people and this current situation stinks, but you've made me see that there is another way to look at it. People wouldn't help if they didn't want to, right?

Honey, you are NEVER a burden to true friends. Remember, what goes around comes around. Someday you may be the one helping THEM out:)
