This Week Stinks

I am very frustrated right now, and I know that it is all trivial and it all has a bright side, but I just need to vent for a little while....

I have been sick in bed for 6 days - yes, SIX!! I spent the day in the ER yesterday, was given medicine and an IV (I have a love/hate relationship with the IV), and was told to rest and drink lots of clear fluids. I am feeling better, but not so great that I can leave the house.

Because I have been sick for 6 days, I have not worked (which means that I don't get paid) and I did not get to go home last weekend to see my family and eat our Thanksgiving meal together.

John's parents arrived here yesterday and are staying in a hotel 5 minutes from our house, but because I am sick, I haven't seen them, nor did I get to go to the mall with the Orr girls today (as was planned before I got sick).

John and I will be celebrating our 1st wedding anniversary on Sunday. We had planned on going to Disney next week for 4-5 days to celebrate. He found out last night that his 4-day in-flight training starts...you guessed it, Sunday! So much for Disney and our anniversary.

Needless to say, I am sick, homesick, sad, disappointed, annoyed, and FRUSTRATED! I know that God has a plan hidden in here somewhere, but it seems like I have been searching for it since January with no luck. I love my husband and I love that he is reaching all of his goals - I am just dealing with a lot of personal disappointment that all came to a head at one time.

Ironically, this week is Thanksgiving, so I guess I should cheer up and think of all that I have to be thankful for instead of complaining. I do have so much to thank God for and hopefully I will be thanking Him soon for working behind the scenes on something that I have yet to even hope for or imagine!

I completely understand your feeling that way. I wish I could say something to make it better, but all I can think to say is that your faith will get you through. I don't know how people with no faith get through life. Get lots of rest (which I know you are)don't worry about the money and know that things will get better - they always do. I love you!

That must be the life of a pilot, b/c I SOOOOO hear that! I had made surprise plans for a night away, had a sitter situated and all for the girls and wham, too bad, we lose out on a 3 day weekend and I have to cancel our night away! Grr... We all have lots to be thankful for though and I'm sure you will get to make your trip to Disney at some point. You and Disney are like white on rice;) Good luck with all the plans and feel better soon! I feel your pain, but without the ER trip. Had a HORRIBLE coughing fit tonight, couldn't breathe for probably about a minute or so and I think it concerned my dad, but it's part of life! Have a good weekend!

I hope that you are feeling better! I know the frustration and the wondering why God?? Why hasn't our house sold yet, what are we going to do about having 2 house payments, I miss my family especially now that it is the holidays!! Hang in there Heather!!

Love you!
