In Threes...

I'm so sorry to keep you all hanging on...after the happenings of last week I sort of regressed and forgot to post. Really all I wanted to do was go to sleep and wake up again!

So where was I? Oh...last Monday I received a phone call from my Mom, you know one of those where you KNOW something is wrong. They were rushing my brother...my only--younger--baby brother to the hospital with chest pains. Panic and fear hit me immediately. I made a few phone calls and off the the hospital I went. After lots of tests they determined there was no heart damage, well except for a little enlargement of his heart from...high blood pressure. My brother has high blood pressure and has had it for quite some time now. It's really hard to say that I'm happy that's all it is...but I am. Now he has TWO mothers calling him daily to make sure he's taken his meds!!!

Oh...but that's not all that happened!

Remember how everything happens in 3's?!

Well, on Tuesday afternoon DD was going to her class at the Community College when this girl backed into her. Smack dab in the middle of her passenger door! And had the nerve to say it was DD's fault!! Excuse me...
Now we are jumping through hoops to get the "driver-at-fault's" insurance to cover the damage!

What's the third thing you ask?

I'm counting Mr Ace's "injury" the week before as one of them!! He's much better and in fact "found" his pillow late one night, I'm putting it in the closet. If he can open that door he can have it! I remind him all the time that until he grows thumbs there are just limits to what he can do!

We did have a wonderful weekend...Milo was here. Sorry no pics, we were just so busy playing that I didn't even pick up the camera. This coming weekend is going to be even better...we are going on our first camping trip of the season. Don't you think we're in need of one?

I promise I'll have some knitting content...I have been knitting~~how else do I keep my sanity and MY blood pressure down? Of course I offered to teach my brother to knit...nothing doing!

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!

What a week! I'm glad that your brother is ok... good luck with the insurance thing, what a pain! Been there, done that!
Glad that Ace is still doing ok too, they sure are smart... let us know if he figures out how to open that door! LOL

Diana said...

Sure hope your brother does well and takes care of himself. Glad it wasn't a heart attack!
Don't some people have nerve? hopefully the police could straighten out who's fault it was and you can end the calls to insurance.
Poor Ace! I will forever smile when I think of him and his pillow.

Wow, sounds like you really deserve your upcoming camping trip! What a bad run of events. Sorry to hear you've had these things to deal with, but glad everyone is ok. Hugs! :o)

We used to have so much fun camping. Now our trailer gets more use being a traveling motel when we go to and from our vacation properties on the U.P. of Michigan. We "camp" in the parking lot of Cabela's or a Flying J and sometimes a little campground just off of one of the main roads we travel. Maybe this year we'll be able to take a few trips just to camp for real.

You didn't say where you will be going but I highly recommend the state park campgrounds in West Virginia. Watoga with the sites on the river was always one of our favorites. Hope you have a great trip and have pictures to share when you come back.

I'm so glad everyone is alright! Enjoy your camping trip, and stay away from the poison ivy!

Yikes! I'm so glad your brother is OK. And your DD is OK (even though her car isn't). Sheesh. I'm glad that 3 already happened. That means no more, right???

Karen said...

So much in your life!!! I hope it all tames down for you now. And glad to hear Milo came to visit, they have a way of being calming all on their own.

Boy, I missed a lot of drama over the last week or so. So glad that your furry "kids" are doing better. I'll just keep all of your family in my prayers for good measure :)

Let's plan to visit soon.

Have fun camping! Here's to a better week for you!

Sorry to hear about your awful week. I hope your brother is feeling better (and taking his meds faithfully). :) I was happy to read that your DD is okay - - after some obligatory running around, the other driver's insurance company should cough up $$. If not, it might help to consult with an attorney (aka light a fire under their bums). That's worked for several other people I know.

Enjoy camping!!
