Come day, go day

Well it seems like some small glimmers of progress are finally being made. The Artist's mood seems to have lifted a little and he even phoned me last night - he doesn't even phone me when he's not stricken (some strange part of the verb to have had a stroke - Mary don't hit me). It made me smile for the rest of the evening.

Otherwise, no news on any front. Not on a garage - he'll ring you back; not on a new house - they'll ring you back; not on any money - we didn't receive your claim until the 29th -your letter says 27th - oh - and you returned my birth certificate on 20 - I don't know why there's a missing week but in any case your husband didn't sign the medical certificate we need to return it to him - exasperated remarks about the fact I'm running out of money as the WTC was stopped from 13 and I can't afford to keep going back to the hospital - sorry we can't process your claim until the form is signed.

Tuesday was a very bad day. I flooded the kitchen because I was trying to sort more paperwork out and forgot I was running the sink to wash the dishes. Had a huge row with Arty Daughter, then phoned rescue centres to have the animals rehomed.

Yesterday was significantly better and I cancelled my place on the waiting lists - I we are rehoused we would all be so gutted to have rehomed the animals.

Come day, go day.

When it rains, it pours. You do seem to be having a run of bad luck these days. I will be sending good thoughts your way so that these matters can be resolved. This WILL GET BETTER!

To She Weevil, the Artist and family: it's a good thing we don't live near one another as our combined ability to draw bad stuff into our lives would cause the desctruction of our immediate surrounds.

You are all in my thoughts.


She Weevil said...

Thanks Vickie - I know it will.

Rantz - I concur: a superhex somewhat like el nino. Probably best if we maintain our antipodal geography.

I'm sorry, I completely screwed that comment up!

I am so pleased that the artist is progressing a bit, but the rest of it sounds really sucky. Our animals are a part of the family and I can quite see how it would be heartbreaking to have to get rid of them, even if it was for the best. I hope you are having a better weekend. Thinking of you all x.

I'd do more than accidentally flood stuff, if I was having to give away my animals.
"Are you OK?" seems like a crass if not offensive question under the circumstances, but I don't have any better words and am thinking of you.

Keeping the family together seems like a good idea to me at a time like this - and the family INCLUDES ANIMALS. Good decision.

I do hope things get better soon.
