Our Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Day ....

My mother always says trouble comes in threes.  Well, today we proved that to be true.  Kevin had an eye appointment, which is not trouble, but it turns out his eyes have gone through such a change that even though he got new glasses a year ago, he needs new lenses again.  My first thought was thank goodness, since lenses alone put in his current frames are less than a whole new pair of glasses.  But nope!  The lenses she recommends are $140.  Great.

On the way home from the doctor the car had major problems.  The boys got it home okay, but it turns out the coolant system blew up.  $600.  Yipee.

Then one of the power windows on Stan's car went down, but refuses to go back up.  He and the boys worked on it for over two hours with no success.  Finally had to patch it up as best they could since snow is coming later this week.  $200 we hope not more.  Lovely.

Now, if only I could find that pesky ten grand I misplaced we'd be fine, but ... oh right!  That was a dream I had one night.

At least our day ended on a pleasant note.  Kevin had some allowance put away and begged to take us out for dinner.  It was nice to get out and away from all these dumb problems.  So, we may have had a lot of stuff dumped on us that we caqn't tke care of for a couple of weeks, but we have the sweetest boys and we truly are a happy family. 

So I guess it wasn't such a bad day after all .......

Did they take the door panel off? We had that happen, and a little mechanical piece (10 cents of plastic probably) had broken, so D had to take off the door panel, pull the window up, and then rigged something in there to hold it.
Hope today is a better day! Those days/weeks are never fun!

Oh man sorry about your lousy day. At least it ended on a good note and you're right if you have a happy family, what more could you ask for?
