Crazy Times ~ STMUSS

Phew!  I'm finally linking up again with my good friends Ginger and Rebecca for another Songs That Make Us Sing Saturday! (they probably think I've abandoned them)

It's a little insane around here at the moment. I'll try to just put this as simply and concisely as possible, 'K?

Easter - wonderful
Daughter and her family were here for 4 days - incredibly wonderful
Dear friend passes away unexpectedly - absolutely devastated
I get some kind of GI bug/flu - sick as a dog
Hubby is in an accident - scares me half to death
One and only car is totalled - cars can be replaced
He's fine (Thank God) - hubby can NOT be replaced
Hubby goes out of town for work - I hate being alone in this big old house
Hubby comes home - Happy Mary
Accountant calls - taxes are finally done - safe?? OR broke??
We get a refund this year! - Yes! unusual, but very nice
Start car shopping- hubby is right brained and very frugal, I am spoiled
Insurance decides NOT to total 10 year old totalled car - WHAT? - panic
Hubby, smart, savvy claims adjuster makes calls - relief
Back to car shopping - research and test drive a gazillion cars
Last night - finally decide on one of those gazillion cars
Today - going to the dealership to buy the car! - I win - Yipeeee! (photo later)

Maybe the rollercoaster has finally come to a stop?? - Fingers crossed...

I thought these songs were appropriate for what's going on in my life right now. No special order...

And last, but certainly not least.... a little something for a dear friend, brave Marine and Vietnam vet, who we will miss more than words can say.  RIP Richard. Semper Fi.

Just click right HERE to link up and join in on the fun!


  1. WoW! That sure is one heck of a rollercoaster ride...sorry you had so many "crappy" things to deal with but happy there were a few "up" momments too!

    Yay that hubby is okay and sending you my prayers for your loss...

    Welcome back...I missed you!

  2. I was just wondering if I'd lost you off my reader! I sure hope you are off the roller coaster now! ~ Maureen

  3. Wow. That is a rollercoaster ride. I used to think of amusement park rides in terms of being FUN. Not so anymore. They are usually analogies for this sort of crazy. Sometimes the line for the bathroom is more than I can handle, if you know what I mean. And I think you do. I am so glad that your husband is okay. It sounds like you balance each other out. And we all need that soooo much. Keep breathing in and out. It will be okay. And I am so sorry about your friend. It is hard to reconcile when people move on. Simply because we want them HERE. (Yes, I have this conversation with myself A LOT. Several times this morning, in fact.)

  4. Mrs. B I'm so glad he is alright- I know that feeling from first hand experience, although mine didnt work out nearly as well as Mr. B's did.

    Cant wait to see your sexy new ride:)

    I got rear ended last week too- this is the second time in 6 months or so that someone has hit me...I think I need someone to just drive me around!

  5. Wow - so glad hubby is OK from car accident and that it all worked out. Can't wait to see your new car - whoo hoo!! Thank God we know where your friend is - he is in your future!


Spill your heart out!
