Yesterday was not a good day

It started with the credit card charge/phone tree thing in the morning. Then, of course, there was the shooting across the street from Kate's school.

Yesterday we also found out that my father-in-law was admitted to the hospital for irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath and dizziness and had unplanned (I don't know if it was truly "emergency") surgery to insert a pacemaker. Thankfully, the pacemaker looks like it may just clear up problems that my FIL has been struggling with for months. But that makes two mortality reminders in one day...

The capper on my evening happened while I was putting groceries away. Chris had started the dishwasher and suddenly I looked up to see water flowing everywhere from the sink vent! All over the counters and all over the floor. Then it stopped as the dishwasher cycled and I pulled the vent cap off to see what was up, *while* mopping the floor and counters, as Chris and Kate just sat there gaping. Jeez, get some towels or something! Completely overwhelmed, I didn't even *think* to, you know, STOP the dishwasher or anything... so, while I'm holding the vent cap in my hand trying to figure out what the heck is going on the dishwasher cycles again and a micky fricky geyser of dirty dishwasher water shoots a foot and a half into the air and all over everything while we bumbled around like the three stooges.

That last one is kinda funny in hindsight (especially since I was able to fix the issue) but I was SO ready for yesterday to be over.

Here's hoping today is better.

It's certainly more funny looking back on it than it was at the time. :)
