You know the old saying ‘waiting for the other shoe to drop.’ Well – it did yesterday.
My son was out mountain biking (alone) and took a fall. He broke his collar bone and now can’t work for several weeks. This is just another thing that has recently happened that just adds up to bad karma. People sometimes think I’m a little pessimistic, but I say I’m a realist because ‘the other shoe always drops’ for me, for some reason and I just can’t catch a break.
I know he’s the one with the broken shoulder, but he lives with me. He doesn’t have health insurance because he quit school last year and we can’t cover him. Nor does him employer offer insurance and he can’t afford private insurance. So I’ll be taking care of him, paying his bills, and trying out how to pay for it all because he can’t work with one arm strapped down.
Sorry for the vent. I’m just trying to figure out what I did wrong to deserve this bad karma I’ve had lately.
