I've been M.I.A. lately.  Things here have been crazy, and not necessarily in a good way.  I'm used to being thrown curve balls and facing disaster..... perhaps twitching a little, but generally laughing at my luck, or lack of luck.  2009 started off that way.  My garage door opener broke and my TV blew within 2 days of each other.  The garage door itself is new within the last year (since I had backed into the old one and cracked the sucker in half before that).  But now it's the opener itself.  And the TV was only a few years old, yet was 21 days out of it would have required a $900 repair (we opted for a new one).  I can laugh at this because it's just so...."us".
However, DH has gotten word that his job is going to formally ask him to relocate.  If at all possible, (meaning, if there is another means for a paycheck) this is not something we want to do at this point.  And, to top it off, DH's mom has been in the hospital for a week...and counting.  
Job stress and parent/health stress are not funny.  There's nothing to laugh about there.  I'm having trouble feeling inspired to write anything.  I'm just feeling overwhelmed and less and less in control.  Hopefully I'll be able to find some humor in the mundane soon.  Until then...

Just discovered your blog via Sara with no h. Sorry to hear how much you've had on your plate lately. I hope everything starts to turn up for you. Will be praying for mil to get better and home from the hospital (if she's not home already) and will also be praying the job situation works itself out for your dh. None of that sounds like any fun to deal with. Kudos to you for keeping your chin up. Life has a funny way of working out in the end. (hugs)
