Lately, we have had some really bad luck. Here are some examples of some of the things that have happened lately. We all had the flu. Mr. Right had a kidney infection. I had some complications from the flu and a sinus infection that have dragged on for over 3 weeks. A black cat crossed the street in front of us and then literally 10 seconds later we were almost in a wreck.
The other night we sent the children to brush their teeth and get ready for bed. They left the water running as they were changing clothes. Mr. Right told them to go turn it off. Not only was the water running but for some reason that will only make sense in the mind of 4 year old twins, they put toilet paper in the sink and stopped it up. The water overflowed into the drawers and cabinets and onto the floor. Thankfully, there were lots of towels in the cabinet and it did absorb most of the water.
We went to film something with our video camera the other day. We set it up outside on the tripod and the wind immediately knocked it over on the concrete driveway. It quit working. I literally broke the camera as soon as I got in front of it. Well, I was able to get it to work again finally but it was a HUGE pain.
So, Mr. Right and I are thinking it is time to change our luck. I’m thinking we need to sit in a germ free, rubber walled room and wait out this bad streak. His theory is that we should do enough to bring on bad luck that it will swing the pendulum back the other way. He thinks we need to get a black cat to cross our path while we are standing under a ladder, breaking a mirror, and spilling salt. I am a little afraid to push our luck that far but given our luck lately it seems like it might be better than what we are doing. What do you think? Should we push our luck or not?
In the meantime, I will continue to pray to God for patience and guidance and I will do my best to find the silver lining even in the toughest situations. For now, I will be thankful we can find the humor in these situations.
