Why does everything happen at once?

I don't do so well with stress, and certain situations cause me to have a nervous stomach.

I remember a date I had my freshman year of high school. His name was Rick. We were going to see a movie and I was sooooo nervous. I was in the bathroom a couple times before he came to pick me up (and by saying he came to pick me up, I mean his parents drove him over to pick me up, so it's no wonder I was nervous!). Thankfully my stomach generally calms down once it doesn't have anymore time to fret over the upcoming situation.

In the last few weeks, there has been more and more added to my plate and I'm starting to feel my mind spinning, and my stomach turning itself in knots.

My sister went into surgery Wednesday morning to have the hysterectomy done. At 11am my cell phone rang and my mom let me know that the doctor came out to speak with them, and told them everything went great, there were no problems with bleeding and that my sister was in recovery. I let out a sigh of relief.

That night I learned that Mike's mom is not doing well. The family was looking into hospice. While Mike doesn't have the best relationship with his mother, it's hard to digest the thought of losing a parent at only 29 years old.

And then there's things less serious like the fact that we need a windshield in my car and that an indicator light came on last night and we can only imagine what those things are going to end up setting us back.

One thing always seems to hold true --- when it rains, it really does pour.

I totally know how you feel. I am, however, very glad to hear things went well with your sis. I'm sorry about Mike's mom. I hope everything turns out ok. I keep feeling myself spin as well!! Good Luck I hope things calm down for you!!! (and me!)

Losing a parent young is not easy (I was 25) but at least they are not in pain and suffering anymore.

Glad to hear your sister came out a-okay.

Continued thoughts and prayers.

Glad to hear about your sister, Sarah. Sorry to hear about the car issues. I'm sorry to hear about Mike's Mom too. Losing them young, isn't easy. I was 8 when my Mom died. Now, that hospice is being called least the family has time to say their good-byes and spend that final time with her. I'll continue to pray for your family. HUGS

Hope the sun starts to shine for you again soon.
It's been "raining" in my neck of the woods too.
