Hugs for the Mom

The Mom has had a couple of really bad days back to back.

On Thursday, she talked to her library job. Because she gots the full-time job at the college, her boss at the library wanted her to quit the library job. The thing is, the Mom really, really loves that job and to her it's more of a fun outing around books than a jobbie. So she managed to pursue her boss there to let her work two Saturdays a month with a demotion. The Mom is kind of upset about it. She understand that she couldn't devote the hours she used to 'cause of the full-time job but she didn't think they would try to get her to leave.

Then yesterday, she got a call from the other college she teaches at. The one class she has there was canceled due to low enrollment. Well duh. It was a SUNDAY class. Who the heck is going to take a history class on a Sunday morning? Well, she's upset about it 'cause she likes teaching at that college.

The worst, though, happened yesterday morning. The Mom and the Dad were bringing the Dad's car to the mechanic. The Mom was driving her car, the Dad his. Well, it was a new mechanic so the Mom was unsure of where to go. When she saw the turnoff at the last minute, she stopped short. Unfortunately, the Dad's car's brakes failed and he went ramming into the Mom's car. They are both OK but their cars aren't. The Dad's car is at a body shop with the left front of the car smashed in. The Mom's is in the driveway but she can't really drive it 'cause the trunk keeps popping open. At least they were able to get the insurance people to get them a rental.

The humans say bad things come in threes. I guess they are right.

I do hope that things start looking up for your Mom. That is tough about the jobs. And it's too bad about the library job. I'd hate to loose a job I loved, like say food testing for Georgia--or even have to cut back!

Your Mom has really had a bad time lately. Here's some warm {{{hugs}}} for her. It's a shame about the library job. Why would a college schedule a history class on Sunday morning? It doesn't make sense. I am really sad about the accident with the cars. I am glad neither your Mom nor Dad got hurt, but having both cars undrivable must suck really bad.

I'm sorry all these things happened to your Mom and Dad but I'm glad no one was hurt in the accident. It doesn't make sense to me that the Library would try to make your Mom leave even if she couldn't work a whole lot of hours. Having someone who loves the job and does it willingly and happily should be really important. My Mom works at a university and she's not surprised a Sunday class was cancelled. We all hope things get better soon! Purrs.

Sometimes things just really fall in the crapper, don't they? Hope things are a bit more under control by now.

A hint on that trunk lid: that is why god gave us bungee cords. Just remember to take everything valuable out of the trunk first. (some people see a trunk like that as a discount store)

Sending a big {{hugg}} for all of you.
