mocking sun

the sun came out. to shine it's brilliance on life. to show how things march on despite sick grandmothers. to show that happiness does exist (even if it's not my own). to mock me as I'm chained to my desk. to show me just how dead flat my tire was.

yes, really. I can't catch a break. this time I have to replace all 5 tires. it can't be repaired and it's discontinued. and with AWD, I can't buy one different tire. the worst part is, the ones I have had quite a bit of life left in them yet.

well, at least I know my grandma has a lot of life left in her. she was ornery to the ER staff when her friend took her over the other night. but she's feeling a little better now that she's home.

a week ago my mom said she was too tired to be ornery. so ornery is an improvement. and that brings a little happiness with it despite the rest.

All five tires? Unbelievable! RG you just can't get a break!
Great news that your Grandmother has improved.

now I know why I don't want AWD. I'm sorry about the tire(s). But so glad to hear about your grandmother! That IS a bit of sunshine!

That's how we knew my granny was on the mend. She had the strength to be a total bitch to the nursing staff. And to us. And to her physiotherapist. And to... Well, you get the picture ;)

Glad to hear she's on the mend. It puts stuff like tires in perspective.

Sucks about the tires, but if it's the trade-off for grandma getting better, then we can live with it.

Oh man I just had to do that not too long ago. It stinks. Damn AWD trucks!
