Just life in the fast lane...

Speaking of fast lanes---has anyone else noticed how the left lane has become the new "right" lane? Is it just me, or is everyone in the left lane poking along?! Gee whiz...give me a break! When I'm behind the wheel, I literally have ZERO patience! I'm Italian, what can I say?!

I finally closed the deal on that historic home this past Monday. It turned out to be what we call a "dry closing"...where they all sign paperwork, but it doesn't fund until the wire transfers and overnighted checks, etc. come through. So, I leave the table with no check in hand. Oh well, I've waited this long...what's another couple of days?!

The wrist is feeling better, although it's still swollen---it actually feels better when I don't wear the brace. And, on top of it all, I think I broke one of my toes in the fall. Holy cow! Who'd a 'thunk a broken toe could cause so much pain?! I have 9 others, can't they compensate?!

On a sad note, our dear family friends (my mom and dad's best friends, who also were my Sunday School teachers when I was in the 6th grade, we went to school with their kids, etc.), the ones who have been such a help to my mom since my Dad's death...they just lost their son (44 years old) yesterday. He was at work, hadn't been feeling well for a couple of days with jaw pain and then he started having pain in his arm. One of his friends was taking him to the E.R. and he slumped over, dead from a heart attack, before they arrived at the hospital. So, so sad. Please remember them in your prayers. The funeral is Friday morning. It's unnatural to bury one of your kids.

It caused me to pick up the phone and schedule that physical with the doctor that I've been putting off. He told me last summer when I turned the big 4-0 that I needed to have cholesterol checked, etc., but I just haven't done it.

One more thing...hubby actually blogged AND cut grass over the weekend! I've talked about how much he loves food...check out this funny story here...

Hope ya'll are having a good week~mine's been too busy...life is hard, but God is good!

8 sweet friends had to say...:

That is really scary and sad about the 44-year-old! Wow. I really need to take my health more seriously.

So sorry to hear about their son's death. Very sad. I'm glad your wrist is a little better.

I totally agree about traffic...I, too, get so frustrated when I drive, especially here since we have so many visitors.

I'm sorry about the loss of your family friend. I thought of you this weekend. I was burning leaves and tripped over a stick when I was moving backwards to avoid the spreading forest fire I started, when I fell, I think I hurt my foot and my hand. I didn't think I broke anything, but my hand still hurts pretty bad! So you have my complete empathy!
