Come Saturday morning.....

I'm sitting here freaking out. I literally can't move cause I'm freaking out. You might ask why I'm freaking out. Okay, I'll tell you.

First, it's the race tomorrow. I always get nervous the day before any race, that's just the way I am. It's been cloudy and rainy for most of the week with little to no wind. If that continues through today, which it looks like it will, the swim tomorrow will be flat, calm, and cold. No sun to heat the water up. Yikes. But no wind to create nasty chop. Yeah!! So that's one part.

Second, I have to go pick up my taxes in an hour and a half. I know I owe, the tax lady told me that, but I don't know how much, too afraid to ask. So that's got me freaked out. Okay, and a little pissed. I'm going to scrape up the money to pay in 3 days, then the government is going to turn around in a month or two and send me a check for $1200. Does this make any sense at all??? If I could deduct that $1200 I wouldn't have to worry about getting my payment together. The federal government would not have to process my check. They would only have to send me the balance of my "incentive." So that's part of it.

Third, my car. I need some major work on my car and with taxes looming I've been putting it off. Then yesterday it developed a leak in the coolant system that we can't seem to locate or fix. We've tried a couple of things but none of the worked. Today we are trying something else. Hopefully that will do it. If not, I have to take it in on Monday. More money, that I don't have, flying out the window.

Why do these things always come in bunches?? We go along for months at a time with no major problems, thinks just flowing along. Then WHAM!!! If it was just the taxes or just the car, it would still piss me off, but I wouldn't be totally freaking out over it. But they are both hitting at exactly the same time. UGH!!!!

Okay, I'm going to try and calm down. I wonder if cookies would help? Damn, I have none!!!

I know what you mean because when things are going smooth for too long you just can't help but wonder when everything is going to fall apart! I hope everything works out for you!
