Ever have one of those days...?

You wake up in the morning and based on the events of the previous day or evening, you know it's going to be a challenge.

But you just don't realize how bad it's going to get.

It's not even 10:00 am as I write this and my son has come home from school after inhaling and then coughing out a piece of wood. Dad handled the situation, but opted out of rushing the kid to the doctor for X-rays for splinters. So my little sonshine gets a free day home from school. No biggie, really. I don't think they're doing much in terms of academics this week.

I got an email from a friend this morning saying her whole household has gone into meltdown as well.

I'm on the third or fourth straight day of running the A/C in the office and the house which makes me cringe every time I think of the number of kilowatt hours cranking away. (See my post from May 23rd regarding electric rates.) I just paid my second lowest electric bill in two years, although only two dollars over the lowest, and I know the next one will not be so nice.

The check engine light came on in my truck last night on the way home from church, plus the fact that the driver side window shattered into a thousand pieces a couple of weeks ago. It's probably the tranny. Yikes!

My kitchen is still a shambles, although there is progress. The counter-top people are coming Monday, which means hubby will have the bottom cabinets leveled by then. Which means I should have running water, a working dishwasher, and possibly a working stove, as well, by the time he leaves to go sell fireworks.

On another good note, my nephew graduates from high school this weekend. On the other hand, I have to spend money and buy him a gift...

But God is still on His throne, and this too shall pass.

Hope your day is going better than mine!
