Well, I haven't ever been a big superstitious believer or anything. I mean I have made the jokes of oh no there goes a black cat crossing my path or it must be in the stars, but I really haven't ever gotten much into all that mumbo jumbo superstitious stuff.
However, after a day like yesterday I may just change my mind. You know that old saying it comes in threes? Well, yesterday it sure did!
First: I sliced (and when I say slice I do mean SLICE!) my thumb open! I think that I must have mistaken it for a fish that I wanted to cook or something! My entire left thumb is wrapped up completely now (thanks to the school nurse!) with a huge bandage making it very hard to type. This brilliant act of carving happened when I was trying to take off the little plastic cover that is on the el cheapo razor I decided to buy last week. There I was fiddling with it and getting quite frustrated while watching TV (yes I see the mistake here) when my thumb slipped and off came the plastic cover. This was all fine and dandy since I wanted the cover off BUT in the process my thumb slid straight across that double bladed
Second: Poor Megan Beth slammed her finger in the van's sliding door after school yesterday. Now, it was most horrific because I had already walked all the way up to the front door when I heard her scream: OPEN THE DOOR. I tell you that I dropped what I had in my hands, ran to the van and then as fast as my fumbling hands would allow (remember my thumb is all bandaged up) I got the keys to unlock the door. Now, of course since I am such a cheap skate (remember I bought el cheapo razors??) I have a basic vehicle without the push button unlockey thingy. So, I had to actually put the key in the door and turn the damn thing to unlock the doors. All the time she is yelling: HURRY HURRY HURRY. IT HURTS IT HURTS IT HURTS!
Third: As if that isn't enough (remember things happen in threes right?) Nay Nay (my oldest) went into the ER last night and was admitted to the hospital with a collapsed lung. It is apparently a side effect of her heart condition she has, her thin body structure, her smoking (yes I know! Believe me she hears about this all the time from me!) and her neglectful manner of her required daily medicine taking. I think pray this is a wake up call for her and she will now go to the dr. and take her daily medicine she is supposed to be doing because honestly I just can't imagine a world without my Nay Nay. No matter how annoying
So, there it is in a nutshell. Things happen in threes or so they say. (Just who are THEY?) As long as nothing happens with Chris at school, the hubs at work today or with Kelsey K tonight at Cirque Du Soleil (can you believe she gets to go to that???? I never had those kind of cool field trips with my foreign language clubs in school!) then I will be able to breathe easy again.
As my step daughter would say:
