We were driving to an appointment today when my husband hit a rock in the road and two of the wheels on my car broke…not the tires popping – that would have been far too easy to repair – the actual wheels themselves broke which take special parts having to be ordered in to fix which could take a few weeks due to delays in shipping because of covid (of course)….sooooo between being stranded on the side of the road and having to get the car on a trailer to haul it home and trying to find parts to order it made for a super not fun day today….
Then we got home tonight to find our dog had just gotten sprayed by a skunk and run around inside the house getting the skunk oils all over and filling our entire home with skunk smell so now we are scrambling like crazy to wash our dogs, air out the house with huge fans, and putting bowls of vinegar everywhere to try and help absorb the skunk smell from the house…
I really try to come up with positive ways to look at things when I write my nightly blog posts but tonight all I can think to say is “I’m filing for a divorce from 2020!!! I mean, I’ve given this relationship nine long months and it’s glaringly evident we just aren’t a good fit for one another…this relationship just needs to end.
We all need to help each other to hang in there for 114 days and then the calendar will declare all of us officially divorced from the year 2020….114 more days and we can kiss 2020 goodbye forever!
