    Yesterday sucked - had some problems with some close relatives - one winds up in jail and he wasn't even involved.

    Then today I realized I had a flat tire. So I stopped at the gas station so that they could hopefully just replace the tube. Well of course it couldn't be that easy on this "WEEKEND FROM HELL". Oh no. Here the entire wheel which is also a special edition rim is freakin Bent - not only is it bent but it's CRACKED too. How much will that cost on this "WEEKEND FROM HELL" - about $400-600 I'm told. I don't need this expense right now. I swear, when it rains it pours. Pray for me to stay sane and get through the rest of the weekend.

    Might be worth remembering yesterday was a full moon. I get so much grief then I try to avoid going out or doing anything except lazing around.

    In the midst of your frustrations, give some thought to the millions of people who don't know whether they'll have enough to eat this weekend. It won't solve your problems, but at least it will help to put them in perspective. Take it one thing at a time ... the sun WILL come up tomorrow, I guarantee it.

    Hugs from Canada,

    Elisabeth

    ((Jada)) I can totally relate. On Wednesday my DH transmission on the car went out. Luckily he is good about working on cars but still the expense is going to be great! He works 12 hr shift work and won't have another day off till Monday so I am stuck without a car-eeekkkk.

    I had not bought anything for Easter so I went to the store with my father in law. really nice guy but driving with him is a tip. "baby, is that light green-lol!!" :eek:

    hehe, it was fun though and I got all the goodies for the boys.

    lol, and to top it off this morning DH says, I am all out of my medicine, can you go with pa to pick up the refills!! :rolleyes:
    So, later today I get to run to town again with father in law.

    So, look up - things will get better. And remember you can always find something to laugh about, even if it is checking to see if the light is green!!

    You think you have got problems ? I wish mine was as slight as yours. Nobody has bought me an easter egg [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    Only kidding, I know the problems getting a car fixed on a holiday weekend. Can you not pick a rim up from a scrap car dealers? Hope it turns out ok.

    <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/smilies/crazy.gif> Sanity is overrated as, I have found, are relatives.

    My survial advice.

    1st: Get Chocolate! If you can get the Reese's Peanut butter eggs, go for that. Umm. Peanut butter and chocolate. yummmm. <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/smilies/buck.gif>Shake head to get glazed look off face.

    2nd: It is a weekend so drinking is allowed. <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/smilies/alcoholic.gif> I'd say down right encouraged. Since your not driving, drink some more. If my posting sound a little bit humorous, you should at least slow down the drinking a bit.

    3rd: Get out any movie you own and watch it. One that you already have half the dialog memorized is good. DO NOT answer the phone or door till movie is over.

    If you don't feel better repete.<IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/smilies/devil6.gif>

    Yup, been there, done that.

    Know just how you feel. The good news, if there is any, is that you will live past this weekend from hell and have just enough time to recover for the next one.

    Notice the laughter, the good times and the sparkling moments when they do come because the memory of those are what will see you through.

    Blessed Be

    Flyman - I think I'll take your advice. Actually I already tried to purchase chocolate and the man rang up everything but the chocolate - I was ready to strangle him - I really needed that chocolate and of course did'nt have any change - I was using my mac card.

    Now I think I'm going to walk to the corner store and get some rasinets and pop some popcorn and sit back and watch my favorite movie - "Two Can Play That Game" with Vivica Fox and Morris Chestnut. I will skip the drinking. I think I'll survive if I do the above. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks for the suggestion. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    It might be well to contemplate the huge boost in income you'll be experiencing as a super affiliate, etc. That way, you'll be purchasing a brand spanking new car, free of any troubles. And, you'll be able to help bail truly innocent relatives out of jail.

    Its my belief that the universe wants it that way for all of us willing to take the plunge and risks involved in what we're doing. Patience, acceptance, understanding, love and tolerance will bring about abundance.

    Thanks Go60Guy - however, the car is pretty much brand new - a 2002 which I brought last June. It was the pot hole that did it. I hit a huge crater pot hole the other day. Can I make the city pay for that??? Umm.

    Jada, that double-sucks for sure!

    When feeling low, I do indeed find thinking of the plights of others to be a comfort. But I'm not NEARLY as nice as Elisabeth when it comes to this, heh heh heh...

    Take a quick trip over to F'd Company and watch the destruction of other internet companies! That's good for a boost in mood no matter what your original problem is...at least you're not listed on THERE, LOL! <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon38.gif>

    Yes, take a picture of the pothole and get a copy of the estimate. It would also help to measure the depth of the pothole. Contact someone in City Government and ask him or her to direct you to the correct person to take this claim up with. Your insurance would also pay for a portion of it (depending on your deductible) assuming you have full coverage.

    "Whose the so called model chic showing off her stomach - she looks like she is 5 months pregnant - LOL!!~Jada"

    If you're talking about the one with the F'd Company shirt, as I recall she used to work there. Despite any claims FC made to the contrary...they had admitted at some point (Pud might have deleted the admission by now, I haven't taken much notice of that part of the site in long time) that it was more like she was willing to pose, as opposed to trying to be a professional model!

    Anyway, glad you're feeling better!

    Being that Easter Sunday is a time for peace I had sent off invites to Bin Laden and poor old Arafat to come over and have a Easter egg hunt -chocolates and a sit down meal. Ham & stuffed Pork Chops of course would be off the menu. The e-mails bounced after multiple attempts so I didn't buy and prepare the meal or color up the eggs.

    Now I'm unindated with all kinds of uninvited guests from the FBI, news folks and Home Guard. I'm running out of peanut butter, coffee and chips ..what am I to do?

    Only share with the news folks. You want them to remember your site name when they talk about the "wonderful grass-roots peace initiative"...

    Just don't let them see you crying over the fact that Mr. Bin "TwentyFiveMillionDollarRewardOnHisHead" Laden didn't show up <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon38.gif>

    Jada, Glad your feeling better. I have returned with spending the day with my in-laws. <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/smilies/bonk.gif>

    Time to take my own advice. The ears are gone off my daughter's rabbit. (She not even two yet she won't miss them.) The Labatt's is tasting good. Now I must decide between "The Jerk" or "Office space".

    EcomCity.com, Bin Laden does not equal Arafat. This two men are nothing alike.

    The news guys and Gals got the sandwiches and I shared a six pack with the Lebatt's Bear. Their are similarities between Bin Laden and Arafat. They both are the guys who end up holding the handfull of straws to see who picks the short one for the next suicide mission. I don't quite see either of them running out and throwing themselves under the tracks of a Israelie tank or sharing a hot dog at a RedWings game.

    Their idea of the Easter Rabbit is like the Energizer bunny ..stuffed full of C4 ..hopping thru a crowed Mall. Hope they just don't pick EcomCity to target since I have no damage insurance.

    Jada,

    Sorry your weekend was bad but it could have been better by making strategic use of the spare tire. You know from the trunk to the wheel, drop the rim off and chill the rest of the weekend.
