I've unexpectedly been many days without propane tanks for cooking or back up heat.
We've run out of wood pellets for the main source of heat.
I've had my job security threatened.
The basement has flooded twice.
I've had a car refuse to start.
I've had 2 more claims denied by various insurance companies.
The water heater crapped out.
I found out I have tendinitis.
It's been real groovy.
But at least I have electricity, running water, a solid home, and my family is safe, which is more than can be said of so many people in Japan. Nothing like a bit of perspective to function as a kick in the pants.
It is heartbreaking to see what has occurred there. My prayers and hopes are with the suffering.
