I don't like to complain. I try very hard to keep my chin up and look at the positives in all people and situations. I'm sorry that I've been complaining a bit more lately. I noticed as I do my status updates on Facebook that I rarely have anything positive to say these days. I kind of feel like everything is falling apart around me, actually.
1. My grandma, the one who lost her home to the California fires last year, passed away yesterday. She is actually my grandpa's second wife, but had been married to him since long before I was born and was just as much a grandparent to me as my biological grandparents. She was my last grandparent alive. I'll be going to her funeral this Saturday, which means cancelling my lessons at Tuacahn on Friday and driving up to Salt Lake where my brother and I will fly out. This also means I miss the one day of Girl's Camp I was supposed to go to (which honestly I'm not too sad about) and just start my little 4th of July jaunt up north a lot earlier.
2. Joel still hasn't heard from the blasted University. Enough said.
3. My fancy schmancy digital piano broke last night. We can't figure out what on earth is wrong with it, but the power simply doesn't come on when you push the power button. I am, understandably, very upset by this. Chloe can't practice her piano, I can't teach lessons (thank goodness I have none this summer from my home), and most importantly, I can't practice my song for the above mentioned funeral.
4. Joel's car is in the shop for a funny noise. Turns out it's something pretty major and we're out 600 bucks to fix it.
So, there you have it. All my frustrations for the day, blogged.
Like I said, I am having a very hard time staying positive lately. And for some reason, my piano dying is the thing that has sent me to the end of my rope. So forgive me my rant, and I'll try to come back tomorrow (my 9th wedding anniversary!) with a better attitude about life.
