Sometimes life is crazy, like this weekend. First we had the osprey incident...see the previous post...which was exciting and had a happy ending.
Then we had a wonderful candlelight dinner on Saturday evening...just the two of us...steaks on the grill, fresh veggies, and fruit for dessert.
We were just about to cuddle up and watch a late night movie or SNL when the phone rang, it was our son saying his car had broken down about 45 mins away and he needed us to come pick him and his girlfriend up.
An expensive tow truck ride and repair bill later, and he will be back up and running by tomorrow afternoon. Though I don't love them, I never mind costly incidents, so long as everyone is safe and sound. Our son knows us well and began the conversation with..."I'm ok, and I wasn't in an accident, but my car broke down and I'm in a safe parking lot."
Then this morning our washing machine, that has sounded a little like a jet engine lately, decided to start leaking. Again, it could have been worse, it didn't flood the house, so that's good news, and it's given us a good 10+ years of clothes washing, so I can't complain.
And my cell phone has decided that its touch screen, well, is a little less touchy, so I think I will be needing a new one soon.
It's times like these when you just have to take stock of what's really important, not sweat the small stuff, and hope that the money tree in the backyard will get its act together and start producing a little more moolah.
Isn't it funny how we never take snapshots of the tough stuff, though we all have those rough patches? I guess the grit of life isn't nearly as glamorous is it? So life around here isn't always sunshine and roses, it's just real life and I'm good with that.
