Last week I posted about deleting a chain-type email that threatened the leprechauns would bring bad luck if I didn't forward it to three people within one hour. I guess was too flippant about the hazards of deleting it.
On Saturday, I found out that my best friend from high school had died. Even though we hadn't been close for many years, it made me really sad on several levels.
Then yesterday, a man knocked on my door and served me with a summons. It's for a traffic accident I had nearly two years ago! The person in the other car is now suing for disabling injuries. I took the information to my car insurance agent who forwarded it to the company claims department. He could offer little advice on what will happen going forward. It's wait and see.
I'm also going through the last-week-of-the-month doldrums. That's when you're on a fixed income and the money gets tight by then. No matter how carefully you budget, if any unexpected expenses occur earlier in the month, you wind up pinching pennies.
But, on the upside--every one of my kids, grandkids and great-grandkids are doing just fine.Of course, it would be nice if I won the lottery and could help them all out a bit, but I guess I gotta ride out this run of bad luck first.
(Some say that bad news comes in threes so I'm holding my breath.)
