Murphy’s Law Continues….

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jennifer Seltzer @ 8:42 pm

Yes, Murphy’s law is still following me around.  I wish I could shake it but for some reason I can’t.  My oven died this morning.  But it wasn’t just any morning.  This morning was the morning I needed to bring food for my moms group.  I stayed up until 11:30 last night putting it together so I could wake up at my normal time and put it in the oven.  But alas my oven threw a temper tantrum and in the end it won the battle. Thank goodness for wonderful neighbors who let me borrow many things…ovens included! So as I write, someone off craigslist is coming over to fix it.  I’m crossing my fingers, hoping the guy isn’t some kind of felon. 

  Okay the “felon” knocked on my door 15 minutes ago and he wasn’t a felon at all.  He actually fixed my oven in 15 minutes and was a nice guy.  $180 later my oven is fixed.  If any of your appliances fail you, I have his number. 

The rest of my morning consisted of me spilling half of Isaac’s antibiotics on the ground.  There’s nothing like throwing $12.75 down the drain.  I also forgot Elijah’s shoes.   I brought some of Isaac’s flip flops to the nursery (for my moms and more meeting)….which he refused to wear so I ended up carrying him all morning.  I then forgot my tuperware container and cookie sheet at that same meeting.  I’m sure I will never see them again.  Anybody happen to pick them up?

As you read below, we now have some medical bills to pay for….when will it end?  Should I pray for it to continue and then maybe it will stop?  I’ve been praying for it to end and that hasn’t helped.  What is the Lord trying to teach me here?  Anybody??!!!

As a praise though, my boys are playing so sweetly together right now.
