I’m having one of those days, when everything is just a bit harder (or a LOT harder) than normal. It’s so frustrating.

Ben had a school-related meltdown. I know that learning multiplication facts isn’t fun, but you still.have.to.learn.them. Aaargh.

We were informed, on Saturday, that we needed to handle a particular report for the IRS – right away. We thought it had been handled already, by the person who does our taxes – but no. There has been one frustration after another with getting this report filed. Hallelujah it’s done now, finally.

My countertops are being repainted. This is a good thing, but it is also a several day process, and meanwhile I’m working in a kitchen where everything is piled on the table, and I can’t use either the table or the countertops. Frustrating.

Allen had to tear apart the rear axle of the Land Cruiser, because the last time our mechanic was making some repairs in the vicinity of the rear axle, the mechanic messed up something other than the thing he was fixing! I don’t know anything about car repairs, but Allen tells me the rear axle is now leaking oil. If you know anything about car repairs, maybe that will mean something to you. Even if you’re not car repair savvy, I think you can imagine how frustrating this situation is – and it happens frequently when we have mechanics work on our vehicles, and there’s no recourse here, like there might be back in the states.

It’s hot. More than normal. I guess I’ll be glad I’m not back in Maryland, where it’s also hot, and the power is out in many locations, due to the big storm on Friday.

Sooooo, thanks for listening to me vent. I’m thinking tomorrow will be a better day, maybe.
