The BAD (aka "Why my weekend sucked")
1) Had to work on Friday (normally one of my days off)
2) The car that Daughter drives was broken into Saturday morning while she was at work. Smashed window, stolen ipod, camera, purse, wallet, etc. Our insurance deductible won't be met, so the cost to replace the window is coming out of pocket.
3) Had to work Sunday (also normally one of my days off)
4) Going into work early today and will probably be staying late.
5) Haven't run for 10 days
The GOOD (aka "In the grand scheme, it's really not that bad")
1) I'm valued enough at my job to be pulled in for critical assignments. Sometimes this means working overtime/ weekends, but I do recognize that being valued at one's job is not to be taken for granted.
2) Nobody was hurt. It's just glass and stuff. The glass is easily replaceable. Her ID and debit card weren't in the purse. It could have been a lot worse. Plus now I have some ideas about what to maybe get her for Christmas.
3) Heel is no longer throbbing; I think it is getting better. I'm hopeful to be running again this weekend. In any event, this happened after my scheduled races, so it's as good a time as any to need to take a few weeks off.
Sorry to hear about your daughter's car. Hopefully it won't be too difficult to fix/replace everything - it's never a nice feeling to be violated like that.ReplyDelete
I'm really sorry about the car break-in and theft. Yes, it could have been worse, but I'm sure that your daughter feels angry and violated.ReplyDelete
I totally agree with the GOOD in this post...you do have to look at the grand scheme and be happy that you have a job and that it is JUST a car.ReplyDelete
At least you can pull some good out of it all...that is often the hardest part. I leave NOTHING in my car anymore. That sounds so paranoid to at least if something happens, I have my stuff with me.ReplyDelete
Hope this week gets much better!
I had my purse stolen from my car years ago. What a bummer. Not fun.ReplyDelete
Sorry for your daughter's car, all the work done and the days with no running.ReplyDelete
But here someone spent a worse week-end, our premier Silvio Berlusconi.
Sorry to hear of your woes, but as you said, in the grand scheme of things, it's all not too bad. About 7 or 8 years ago, I had my car broken into twice within a month, and I remember how demoralizing that was.ReplyDelete
Ah perspective, isn't it great?????ReplyDelete
i'm glad you are able to find the bright spots, but i do know how stressful these things are. hope you can get back to running soon!ReplyDelete
Geez, too much work and too many robberies. That sucks.ReplyDelete
sounds like the good out weighs the bad!!! can't leave anything in your car these days...ReplyDelete
I like the psotive outlook from the weekend woesReplyDelete
I'm sorry to hear somebody broke into your daughters car, but you are right, it could be way worse. I like your positive outlook! :)ReplyDelete
The car broken into really stinks. That happened to our daughter too. # 4 was totally my day today too. Hope your heel continues to feel better.ReplyDelete
Ugh about the car breaking into! I hate that feeling of violation. I had stuff stolen in high school from my work locker. :-/ Glad it was nothing serious- no one is hurt / everything is replaceable!ReplyDelete
Hope the heel is doing better!
What a bummer a car break-in is. But you're so right in the scheme of things, it could've been so much worse. Way to make your glass half full and woot for a non-throbbing heel!ReplyDelete
