A Series of Unfortunate Events

I wrote this post for myself. To get my thoughts and feelings out of my system, this blog is my form of therapy and I need this outlet right now. That being said, I apologize in advance for all of the whining/complaining ahead, I won't blame you for not reading this post.
If you do read it, thank you for listening.

Have you ever had one of those days/weeks/months where it feels as though anything that could go wrong, did?

   That's how I have felt these last two weeks. Before I go into all of the details, I want to say just how fortunate I feel that my little family, and immediate family are all happy and healthy. At the end of the day that's what truly matters, not all of the events that have been happening recently.

    It all started two weeks ago with a bridesmaids dress that a bridal shop ordered the entirely wrong size for me. Long story short (4 seamstresses, countless phone calls/emails, tons of tears and a trip to David's bridal later) I was forced to drop out of one of my best friends weddings and the owner of the shop had the nerve to tell me I should have known better than to get pregnant when I was part of someones wedding. Funny how tough we are when we're not face to face with someone....
The entire ordeal was crushing because there is no higher honor then standing up there and witnessing the blessing that is marriage.

 A few days later, last Tuesday to be exact, I noticed Max was having an issue with his eye. I knew immediately it was something serious and almost made the trip to an animal ER but thankfully my more rational half AKA Eddie talked me out of it. Turns out I was right, Max has an ulcer on his eye. It's been a week of round the clock drops + pain killers and although it looks better, I can still see it so I'm not sure what that means just yet but we find out Thursday morning if he will need surgery. 

Please pray for him!
  Oh, in between the bridesmaids dress and Max's eye ulcer our neighbor hit our brand new car backing out of his driveway. We found out by a nice note that was slid under our door.

  On Friday I discovered my debit card had been compromised for the second time in two months. As the person who does all of the banking and bill paying in the house this was one huge pain in the ass because now I need to change the numbers EVERYWHERE.

This brings us to last night. Eddie and I went to check the mail to discover a TON and I mean a ton of bills we were not expecting. One being medical bill from genetic testing back in June that I was never told would be considered "out of network." Yes shame on me for not checking, but I had no idea and now I'm paying the price, literally. Then we received a property tax bill for one of our cars. As New Yorkers for our entire lives we are not used to this and it took us by total surprise... Yay? No.

   And to end the night, Eddie suggested I go for a walk with Max to clear my mind a bit because I am an overly emotional, hormonal mess these days and he can't stand to see me so upset. While walking around our complex there were a ton of people out and about which is very common for our area, however, I noticed someone across the street walking with a scream mask and it just didn't add up. I kept going and made my way home, only to notice him again but this time it was just him and I and he stopped a few feet away from me and just stood there. I immediately became terrified (I HATE masks) and ran into our house and locked the doors.

 Wtf was this person doing?! 
Why was he here?! 
Why was he wearing a mask while the sun was still out?!

  I had a full on panic attack after that and it resulted in Eddie calling to cops just to let them know what's going on.
 Needless to say it's been a really rough two weeks for me, I would say for us, but Eddie handles everything so much better then I do.
   I just want to know when I will catch a break.


  1. girl i feel ya! when i go through rough patches i always remind myself that everything happens for a reason even though we may not know or understand idt at the time!

  2. I just want to give you a hug. The last part of the story is absolutely terrifiying. I am so glad you are safe because all the other things can be dealt with. Cars can be fixed, medical bills even if you pay a little each month will get paid. That's what I did when I had unexpected out of network bills. I paid what I could every month, ignored the collectors when they sent the account there and paid the original hospital bill. If you call them they may even give you a payment plan. I will send happy and healthy thoughts for you and your little family. I hope Max is doing better and he doesn't need surgery. (P.S. The New Yorker in me wants to yell at that bridal shop lady for saying that to you...just send me her info!) xoxoxo

  3. Oh my gosh. I am so sorry about all of these things!! I would be reacting the same exact way. No matter how truly blessed we are in life to have healthy family members, to have food, water, shelter, and the most important things, we still deal with issues and need to vent!! Thanks for being so open and honest. PS: that mask would scare the SH*T out of me, too.

  4. "When it rains it pours" I hope this passes for you soon, it's always everything hitting at once and then things start to look up again. Like everyone we all have bad days, and you have always been a positive vibe for me to relate to that I hope we can all inflict on your life someway. That scream mask person is terrifying, and I can only imagine how you must feel! I'm sure it was just kids being stupid thinking that they're funny!

  5. What a rough few weeks!!! So sorry!! It will pass soon though. There is light at the end of the tunnel. And the nerve of that person who shamed you for getting pregnant during your friends wedding!! That makes me so angry too.
