I am offering many thanks to all & whichever relevant powers-that-be for having all these frustrations in series rather than on top of one another, but it has gotten to the point that I am kinda wondering what problem is going to arise next.

Since the last whiny post:

Yesterday I finally came down with the stomach bug Torben had (I had been boggling that I had escaped given how much of his drool I must ingest). Fortunately, despite a slightly queasy stomach, I was only inflicted with the...er... tail end of the problem.

More eventfully, on Wednesday I got rear-ended on the way from dropping Torben off at day-care. I am fine and the gent's car is also relatively unscathed. The other car? Not so much: Front end was crunched and both airbags went off. As the person who was rear ended I am not at fault but I feel some guilt that my deciding to stop at a crosswalk to let a cyclist cross resulted in a much shittier situation for the person who rear-ended me: loss of a vehicle that is likely a requirement for managing work/family needs (the car was long enough in the tooth that insurance payments probably won't cover a replacement, and those insurance rates are likely to go up). By comparison, my day: No-one minded my being late for work (ok, ok, as usual) and my boss and I decided that our weekly one on one should be over cocktails since the conference rooms were all booked.

Ugh, sympathy. I've had that experience too before, where I'm glad that things go wrong serially rather than in parallel. (Though when it happens in parallel, my terrible sense of humor just starts laughing every time something else happens.) Hope you feel better soon!

Prior to child, when it happened in parallel it was usually just my own misery, which was a lot easier to laugh at the "OMG, really?!?" levels of things sucking. The preverbal, pre-logic little person's misery is really hard on me.

But, <g;knocking on wood> things seem to be on the upswing.

Thank you for the well wishes!

Thank you. The crash, while not my favorite thing this week, so far seems to me the most minor of the monsters. Most importantly. my child was not in the car at the time, I don't think I took any long term damage, and the car is still fully functional.

Ugh, sorry to hear this. I was going to try to give you a yell for hanging out, but I got sick last night (fever, sore throat, though oddly no congestion, which is usually my jam for colds).

Soon, gadget?

DId your body hurt for a day or two before the fever? If so you may be having the same plague I had. (congestion kicked in at the tail end of said plague).

Get better soon! Next weekend want to do Saturday or Sunday morning at Mosswood? The playground is quite nice, and there are swings and some Fredlet-friendly slides.

Yes, let's aim for next weekend. ATM, I think Sunday may work better. Fredlet on a slide sounds like ridiculous fun.
