A Series of Unfortunate Situations

Dear Hubby and I have a theory that good things cannot happen to us for too long, we both instinctively start to worry when we haven't faced some sort of challenge for too long. We were worried on the way back from our little trip to San Diego and then the tire caught on fire. Dear Hubby was then bit by a spider, the breaks on my car went out and now to top it all off Dear Hubby has broken out in a terrible rash as a reaction to one of the medications he was given for the spider bite. On a plus side this can mean that the tides can turn and we can get out of this phase, I just feel terrible that he has been so uncomfortable during all of this.

I will update about the vacation to Colorado we just got back from, we had a great time with our families. We are lucky!

One Hot Weekend

Dear Hubby and I took a quick trip to San Diego for the weekend, we were able to meet up with a few friends and just basically relax. We spent loads of time just sitting on the beach and watching the waves. We swam in the ocean for a little while and tried body surfing, Dear Hubby was more successful than I was, I just ended up with alot of seawater in my nose. We took our bikes and once we had parked in front of friends house we just rode them, my favorite moment of the weekend was riding back to the Pacific Beach area from the Mission Beach area at 1 in the morning after we met up with my friend Terri. We rode along the boardwalk and while it was packed during the day it was pretty deserted in the middle of the night. I could hear the sounds of the ocean as I rode, it was pretty perfect. The weather in San Diego was balmy and perfect, it was 111f officially here in Las Vegas on Thursday, which means on my side of town it reached like 117f. I was so happy to be out of the heat and I love the humidity and weather on the beach.

Since things in my life have to have balance, you know something bad had to happen. On our way back into Las Vegas Dear Hubby heard a noise and pulled over, he thought maybe we had a flat tire, it turned out to be the wheel bearing. He thought we could creep the truck back into town, we got off the freeway at the first exit when another truck flagged us down to let us know that our wheel was now on FIRE!

Apparently when the bearing failed it caused a metal on metal situation, the friction caused the metal to become so hot that our hub cab caught on fire. We put it out quickly and as of right now it doesn't look like the fire caused any additional damage. We had to have the truck towed to a mechanic.

All and all an ending to a wonderful weekend that could have only happened to me, no flat tires for this girl, nope I get tire fire.

Since I was out of town I didn't have a chance to officially link to the guest blog I submitted for my friend AmyK, check it out and then stay around to hear about her life with her Dear Hubby and her step-daughter, the Kidlet.

Throw Your Hands Up and Shout!

Remember a while back I was convinced that the Maintenance guy took my bottle of Shout?

Dear Hubby may have thought I was exaggerating, in fact he may have told me that I must have misplaced it and that there was no way the maintenance took it. I figured that if Maintenance grabbed the bottle of Shout it was most likely by accident, I really didn't think they stole it or anything.

So fast forward to Thursday morning, I had locked the keys in the truck the night before so we had called a locksmith to get them out. There was a knock at the door so I figured it was the locksmith, guess who?

Maintenance! and guess what he had, my bottle of Shout!

Ha! I knew I wasn't crazy, he had accidentally grabbed it.

Tell It To Me Straight

Communication is the most vital thing in a relationship but what do you when the parties involved either will not communicate with each other or refuse to listen to each other?

We are experiencing issues with Bio-Mom again, she does not fully communicate with Dear Hubby. She will call to tell him some of the most mundane things about her life but for some reason she refuses to communicate about The Rapscallion's school issues.

Even when we can get her to communicate about the issues at hand she has a habit of lying to make herself either look better or hide what is going wrong.

I am at my end in this, I cannot make her tell Dear Hubby the truth but at the same time there are no consequences for when her lies and half truths affect my life and household. Dear Hubby and I fight, I am frustrated that someone who does not live in my household can affect my life.
