Trying to Make Lemonade from Lemons

What a couple of days I have had!

Yesterday the 

broke and no way to fix it. So I scoured Craigs List and have to go and get one tomorrow. This I can understand as it was about 8 years old.


 to add insult to injury, I got in my car this morning, only to find that some little bugger has sliced through my convertible top ...aaaarrrrgggghhhhhh.

Like we have the money right now for this sort of rubbish???

Now the trying to 'make lemonade' bit. I had a second interview for a job today. 
It seemed to go quite well, but of course you never know, so I am not holding my breath.
If I get it I will let you all know where it is and what it is close to (awesome places).

As you might know, my son William, joined the Army nearly a year ago.
He got word last week that he will be deployed to Afghanistan on Sept. 14th.
I am so proud of him and what he has achieved.
Now I REALLY need that job so that I can send him care packages every week or so.
He assured me that his unit would be safe and the only thing he had to worry about were these little beauties and staying clean. Now that really is "Making Lemonade From Lemons".

Camel Spider



  1. that spider is going to give me nightmares!
    sorry about your rough patch. just remember all the blessings you have in your life!

  2. now I know why some of those people are so insane over there. If I had to find one of those in my house it would drive me to insanity

  3. What a pain about your car :(
    spiders don't normally bother me but those are just a bit too big :)

    Hope your week improves
