Did you know that when a piranha bites you, it only bites once? One piranha bite does not kill, and from what I’ve heard, it doesn’t even really hurt much, other than a gash. But a swarm of them attacking can turn a full-grown cow into an instant skeleton. It’s not the size of one; it’s the volume of many that leads to collapse. This week- no major crisis. But a whole heck of a lot of piranha bites.
Saturday: Car blows up
Sunday: We owe money in taxes.
Monday: Cat gets an infection; has to go to vet for small surgery
Tuesday: Buy a new car we hadn’t budgeted for
Wednesday: Elizabeth develops tendonitis in her heel and is on crutches
Thursday: Hot water heater dies
Friday: Missed my book deadline.
It may be south Georgia with no snow, but the stress- it’s a’piling up pretty high around here. No “crisis” that can’t be dealt with, but lots of dealing with this week.
Ray is on edge, and I’m about to follow him over it when he goes over it. I feel the nips of the piranha…
