My week started off with car trouble and an ear infection. The local place I took my car to didn't have the proper scanning software to read the diagnostic code on my Kia. Everyone agreed that it wasn't safe to drive, so I had it towed to Columbus (about 30 minutes away). Turns out that it needed a tune up (12,000 miles early, but my car has always done things before it's supposed to. It's an overachiever.), a new belt and a wheel bearing replaced that was going bad. It cost $80 for the tow (that it didn't need). Another $900 for the rest. Got my car back on Wednesday. Was informed that I would need new brakes soon. Can't wait. I made it to the doctor and they irrigated my ears and gave me antibiotics. I was there Monday, Tuesday and Friday. By Friday my ears were worse. The irrigation caused an infection of the ear canal which requires a different antibiotic. The pain from this infection is such that I can't turn my head to either side and can't open my mouth very wide - I guess from the swelling. So, I'm also on pain medications. Chewing is also uncomfortable. My beloved kitty is critically ill. I may very well be bringing her home to die come Monday. I don't want her to die in some strange place (to her) without me. Then today, the antibiotic upsets my stomach. It takes A LOT to make me throw up, but I did. And when I did, I peed. When that happened, I just thought, "You know, my week is now complete." Linda is right. You have to laugh at the absurd. Otherwise, you'd just go crazy.
