A bad day that never ends.....

Have you ever had a bad day that went on for days??? Well, that's what I am in the middle of now. It started Sunday when we went to Lubbock. I had to have a proceedure done on my back on Monday morning so we went and spent the night. It rained on us the whole way there. We got there at 7, ate at Cheddars and then I wanted to go to the mall, not realizing it was Sunday and they would be closed. So I dropped Tony off at the motel and proceeded to go to the mall and it was closed. So I was simply going to turn around and go back, but Lubbuck is a stupid town that won't let you just turn around and go back, so I ended up who knows where. It was dark, raining, and there was construction. I was about to get worried. I called Lacy who lives in Wichita Falls, because I knew Tony would be asleep. She was not the least bit surprised that I was lost, because I get lost everywhere I go....just ask my family. I have no sense of direction, but luckily Lacy doesn't have that problem. So she guided me back to my hotel over the phone...after being lost for 45 minutes.

So Monday morning I go to the doctor and they take me back to the proceedure room. They put something cold on my leg and I asked what it was and they told me that they needed to ground me because they were going to use electricity on me.....what????? That didn't sound too good, but they assured me they did it all the time. So I asked if they were going to sedate me and they said yes, but I had to stay awake so that they could ask me questions during the proceedure.....like 'did you feel that 8000 volts of electricity we put in your back'....of course I did. Maybe it wasn't 8000, but it sure did hurt. So that's finally over and I get to go home. The ride was horrible because my back was so sore from all the needles. We managed to stop in Floydada and get pumpkins and then came home. While we were gone it rained.....and our roof has still not been put on from the tornado, so when I walked in the kitchen...everything was wet. I had to clean up that mess with a hurt back.

Today, I didn't go to work until 12. I wouldn't have gone then but we had a very important meeting that I had to go to. It was really hard on me, but I made it through. But my bad 'day' wasn't over yet. I go to cook supper and get something out of the fridge and it's warm....I look in the freezer...everything is melted. So I have to deal with all of that.

If another bad thing happens tomorrow....I'm giving up!!!!!

There is one good thing, though....I get a new refrigerator!!!!
