On the way home we blew a tire on our trailer in construction. It took us an hour and a half to find a tire shop that would sell us a replacement. We finally got on our way...until a loud thumping noise woke me and all of the kids. We pulled over to discover that the tread had separated on the rear tire of our truck and completely obliterated our rear fender. It somehow managed to miss the new exhaust we had just put on the truck.
Luckily we were only a few miles from a rest stop, so we limped in and put on the spare. It was of course almost flat. We limped on into the next town and got it aired up at a rest stop. We finally made it home sometime in the early morning hours.
The next day we took the hay to a friends house who was buying it. On the way out of her yard, the transmission went out in the truck. Seriously.
We sold the three tons of hay for $450. Half of that is to be sent to my father in law (it was his hay). That means we keep $225. That will ALMOST cover the deductible to fix the body damage to the truck. That does not come even close to covering the hospital bill, the $700+ in tires or the new transmission we will now have to replace in the truck.
Can't get any worse, right? Wrong.
I found out that my oldest son is allergic to bees. He is now the proud owner of two Epipens. I give up, I am ready to just sleep for a week.
