Why me? by Barbara Edwards

This has turned into the weirdest time. I didn't get internet for several days. I missed a blog date. We planned to leave Florida and that night had tornado warnings. The storms followed us to Virginia where a tornado hit a couple miles from my grand-daughter's home.
That night heavy winds and thunderstorms hit.
Okay. Relax.
It's okay. I have a crack in the screen of my IPhone. Who knows how.
My hotspot isn't working to hook me up to my computer.
I called for service to restore my cable and internet at my house and found they'd billed me the wrong amount. Two hours on the phone to straighten that out.
Still not right.
We're home. Camped in the yard until they restore our water. Can't run the furnace without water running in the house. Water company is coming on Thursday.
Now cable wants to hook-up on Friday. Okay. I don't have a choice, do I?
Looks like the  storms are gone but  its colder than expected. 55 degrees today but predicted 70s.
I'm waiting for it to snow.
The wedding is in three weeks. Two confirmations within a month.
How can I write when I'm so weirded out?
I think I'll go back to Florida. Sigh.

Please follow, friend or like me. I love to hear from my readers.

Geez, need a break, or a couple breaks! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you that everything settles back to where it should be--quickly!

Diane Burton said...

Oh, Barb. What a time you've had. Totally understandable why you can't write. What a mess! I hope everything is back to normal soon.

Rolynn Anderson said...

Shoot, I thought bad stuff came in threes. You are way beyond threes. According to the stats, you're due for some smooth sailing, Barb. Wait for it, wait for it...

Brenda Whiteside said...

Good grief, Barbara. They say bad luck comes in three's. I think you attained that and more. Fingers crossed it's over.

Jannine Gallant said...

Obviously you're due for some good luck. Hoping it comes soon!

Oh my, I'd be one cranky mess. I really would. That's a lot of continued stress. I hope things are looking better soon, if not NOW.

Alison Henderson said...

Oh, my goodness, Barb! My head is spinning. Writing wold be the last thing on my mind.

Andrea Downing said...

Oh, do I hear your pain. You're due for a break, and I don't mean your leg either. And they say behind every cloud... And I know all about weddings (see tomorrow's post) and confirmations of invites--my daughter is currently chasing 20 who missed the deadline. Breathe deeply--this, too, shall pass.

Better times simply have to be coming your way soon, Barb. Sending you positive energy. Hope things resolve soon. You did get an entertaining blog post out of all your chaos. Hang in there!
