Don't you hate it when......

......Things fall apart at the busiest time of year. Thought this would be a great place to share and vent more personal frustrations. Sometimes typing them out can help you feel a little better. Okay, so I'll start. All of this has built up over the last 4 months.

-I just found out yesterday that my dog is sick but expensively treatable
-my daughter woke up with pink eye this morning and she needs glasses and braces
-we are down to one car in the family right now (having to share cars sucks)
-we will have a small Christmas this year due to finances (as is with many people these days)
-I have a whole in my bathroom wall
-I'm miserable in my job (but grateful I have one)

I'm sure there's more but that's all I can think of at the moment. Now the best resolution this these problems is MONEY, which I don't have extra of. This is why I'm trying to get my butt in gear to become a successful IM to compensate the difference in income I need. Thanks for listening and allowing me to vent. Come on and try it yourself.

    I'll vent and commiserate with you...lol. Things were going fantastic for me until I went on vacation. While I was gone, I got behind a bit because my sister's computer is unbelievably archaic. I had planned on launching two websites and a new report this past week but that didn't happen because while trying to play catch up, I came home to a house full of sick people. Finally get them back to par and I got sick myself. Now I'm better and my computer went wonky. Spent the entire day yesterday backing up all my important files and do things to fix the issues so no work done.

    Compared to your list, mine is really minor, I know but it's been one aggravating week!

      You know I don't think it matters the reason for stress or frustrations because in the end it's all the same. I hope you are able to now get things back in order now that you have everyone well to include yourself and you are on your own computer where you can get work done, right? Thanks for sharing.

        Yes, I'm hoping my computer is well, too but at least I'm backed up. I do have a hole in my bathroom ceiling, though...lol. Leaky pipe while I was on vacation.

    (Sorry ladies, I'm not going to go there.)

    I am SO thankful that:

    My family is healthy
    I have a roof over my head and food on the table
    We will have a nice traditional family Christmas this year
    No one and nothing is holding me back from my dreams

      You are so right, Kelly! Overall, I've had a tremendous year so mine was just a temporary vexation, nothing more...lol.

      Yes, it is all going wrong for me at the moment too.

      I took a few weeks off to get my Christmas Shopping finished early.

      But we had to get my sister to hospital as she had a second nervous breakdown (she is bi-polar). So I spent most of the fortnight travelling between my home and the hospital.

      Once I got back to work. I logged into my web hosting account and found that my sites were suspended as someone had hacked into my account and used it to set up phishing sites.

      I had to change all the passwords and upgrade all the blogs (nearly 100 websites and blogs) to the latest versions before the hosting company would remove the suspension.

      I had about five days of things working properly then my 3 email accounts were hacked. The hacker got back into my webhosting account by pretending to be me and asking the company to email the passwords to them.

      The hacker put phishing sites on my webhosting again and got me suspended for a second time.

      I realised that the hacker must have put some spyware onto my computer so I told the webhosting company to leave the account suspended for the time being until I can make sure that all the spyware has gone.

      While waiting for a friend to help with this I decided to open a new webhosting account (with a different company) and purchased new domain names and started building eight new blogs. I made sure that I used my laptop to work on this project and did not log on at all using my main computer.

      Yesterday morning I logged into my account and found that my new webhosting account has been hacked and is suspended too.

      I felt like screaming. I have been building up my business for the last few years and now it is all gone.

      I feet out of my depth as I have never had to remove spyware before.

      I still cannot get into my email accounts. Someone might be reading my personal emails!

      I spent the rest of the day yesterday researching how to recover email passwords and spyware vowing to start on the project first thing this morning.

      However when I woke this morning, my throat was sore, my nose blocked and my head banging. I have a heavy cold. If not the flu.

      There is no way that I am going to be able to sort out this challenging problem until I am better. I have had to take another day off.

      Rant Over.

      The blessings -

      Ok so I have lost one months revenue but this wont really matter in the master plan. I have been earning my income on the internet for the last three years and the amounts have increased month on month.

      I have no debt, have paid off my mortgages and have over a years (old) salary in savings.

      I may have to re-build my business but I have a lot more knowledge than when I first started. Any website or blog that I build now will be better and will be built faster than the old ones were.

      I have been blessed with two more grandchildren this year. My daughter had Grace in February then in September my daughter in law had Stanley.

      My sister has started taking her medication again and should be out of hospital early in the New Year.

      All in all a good year really. There I have cheared myself up already.

      Carol

    I don't think glasses and braces will cure pink eye...

    Keep smiling! You'll get thru it.

      No, you are right they won't cure pink eye. But thank God that when I took her to the doctor yesterday, she did not have pink eye. It was viral and she prescribed eye drops and an antibiotic and a decongestant.

      needing the glasses and braces has been an ongoing problem.

    Ladies,

    No matter how bad things are, always try to find the positive part in it. I am sure that you will find it.

    Find something to be grateful for every day. If you're the religious type, use the bible for strength. Don't ever give up, keep moving forward and finding the good.
