Need to Vent

This has been a really bad week so far and I need to vent a bit. My car broke down 75 miles from home on Sunday. I've been carless and relying on other people ever since. I found out that the very expensive repairs will wipe out my entire savings, which I had intended to use to fix a problem in my house. Plus, I'm fighting an infection that started in my jaw and spread to both ears and my throat. The antibiotics seemed to be working until I caught a cold on top of it. And because everything must go wrong at once, my boss told me that the project I'm on may not be able to support my hours anymore. They had replaced me on it when they found out that I'll be leaving eventually and had been giving me support work in the meantime. Because the clearance process for the new job has taken longer than expected, they weren't prepared to continue to cover my salary. It'd be nice to have a second breadwinner in my household and a better support network during this time, but that just isn't the case.

On the bright side, the week can't get any worse, can it?

Wow, you *have* had a rough week! I'm so sorry to hear that. I know what it's like - I've had times like that too. I guess all I can say is that it will end and things will brighten up . . . try to take care of yourself until then. Rent some movies, have some friends over, whatever will bring you a little fun and happiness. Hugs! :-)
