{I'm going to complain. Be prepared. It's just been that kind of week. And while I'm fully aware of the MANY MANY MANY blessings in my life, it's nice to able to verbalize it all by blogging my stressors. Sorry in advance!}

It's always something...
I can't even begin to describe the reality in that statement.

I always feel like right when I cross one thing off my to-do list, another -usually larger- to-do is there to replace it. Car drama. House drama. Medical drama. School drama. Money drama. The list goes on and on.

Today, it's car drama.

B was in an accident this morning on the infamous cut-in-the-hill (a well known part of I-75 where we live). B is fine (praise GOD), but the car was not. The front is busted up, and the radiator was leaking everywhere. The car's been towed to the autobody shop, so we're waiting to hear the extent of the damage.

Lovely, right?

And could the timing be anymore impeccable? Without going into detail, I'll just tell you it's not. Not at all. It never is.

I am bummed. Majorly. And I wish I had the answers for why this happened right now. I feel bad for questioning God's timing, though I'm positive that this somehow fits into his master plan of making me a better budgeter and a better preparer for life's little bumps and bruises. Because, honestly, my budget was completely not ready for the $500 deductible that awaits us. And I'm sure God's plan is much more detailed than making me more budget-savvy, but that's the only thing I can come up with right now.

Again, we truly are blessed and are fortunate that the car was the only thing physically hurt in the accident.

Drive safe today and always!
