When Life Gives You Lemons...

So this have been a rather eventful week, and not always in the best ways possible. I have already posted about Tyson and I having to move the closing date back on our home. As an update, I am of course still worried, but it is getting better.
I got a fun surprise on Wednesday though. I went to the dentist last week after I had chipped a tooth and I was told that I need to get a root canal. Not a fun thing or cheap, but doable. I went back on Wednesday for a consult and I found out that my dental insurance cancelled on January! (kind of embarrasing to be an insurance agent and to not have insurance). Anyway, I spent a couple of hours that day just freaking out and then finally calmed myself down. I kept thinking of this old yiddish proverb which says that "we make plans and God laughs." I had made all of these plans with our budget (because I am horribly insane about that, just ask Tyson) and now I have to rework everything to make this work. I just could not help but wonder if I would ever be able to catch a break. We finally have Tyson working agan (and he is LOVING his job by the way) and now we have some not so fun big expenses!
Anyway, Wednesday night on has been SO much better. I have figured out a way to make the root canal work without paying over $2000 which of course makes me happy. I got my quarterly bonus early than I though and it was for more than I thought it would be. And, tomorrow I am taking my little brother and sister to a festival and on a hot air balloon ride!
Basuically the point is, it's all okay. Even when everything seems to be going wrong, it is all okay.

Another bump in the road...

So for the last few weeks I have been stressing a lot about our lender situation. I worry, I just do and so long as i have known that things were still not complteed I have not been able to really relax about it. Well, now I know I had good reason for that. Don't worry, we are still buying the house, but we have to move our closing date from 4/14 to 4/25. We just can't get them to accept the us without a paystub from Tyson, which we won't get until 4/18. Am I disappoineted, yes, but it's okay. Our lender said that she would take care of everything (contacting my realtor to get the addendum, etc.) I'm still worried though. All I know is, I still won't rest well until we are finished with this whole process.

Okay, so Monday night night I did something that was just brilliant...I dropped my phone in the toilet. I have had this phone for just about ever (not really, but just over 2.5 years) and let's just say, it did not make a full recovery. Anyway, today I got my new phone in the mail and I am just so excited. I looked into getting it about a month ago and it was going to cost a lot of money, but I worked out a deal yesterday and got it for FREE! I'm just rather excited and thought that I would share.

I know, the excitement in my life is just out of this world!
