Have you ever noticed how there are times in life where everything seems to happen at once?
While fighting a sinus infection, a tooth filling falls out, the sewer mainline pipe backs up into the basement shower, and the thawed swordfish is waiting to become that evening's dinner. Which do I ignore and which one gets attention first?
That was the most recent episode. I opted for calling the Drain Doctors first. Everything else got scheduled, including the swordfish.
There was also a mid-summer mini-series...
I am actually managing to prepare a great dinner after having a rather rough night and fighting to stay awake all day, when a favorite neighbor decides to ring the bell, all 3 dogs become obsessed with barking, and my invalid live-in mother suddenly has increased shortness of breath.
What did I do? I quickly headed to the ER, leaving three dogs, my neighbor AND my dinner ALL hanging. No other good choice -- right?
But, I ask: Is this normal? Does this sort of thing -- I mean the timing of it all -- happen to anyone else? Or, is it something I've simply brought upon myself?
PLEASE tell me: It is indeed -- normal.
