you're number one

The universe has decided to tell us that we are number one. And not in a good way.

After reading my depressing blog post yesterday, the universe decided it would be fun to fuck up my day even more.

Joey got into a car accident.

He's okay. We aren't sure about the Jeep. The tow truck wasn't able to drop it off at the dealership's collision center until almost nine last night, so they were already closed. We should hear from them, as well as the insurance appraiser, sometime today. 

It was Joey's fault. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't angry. But truthfully, I was/am mostly angry at our luck. It gets back to the fact that nothing ever goes right for us.

So this morning, I'd like to ask the universe a big favor:

GIVE US A FUCKING BREAK ALREADY, WOULD YOU?

Thanks for indulging me.

oh Katie, this is SO not fair! I'm glad Joey is ok, and hope you have good coverage on the Jeep. You REALLY deserve something good, I hope its just around the corner!! hows the 2ww going?

Secret Sloper said...

I'm VERY glad he's okay and I hope the Jeep is too. Not fair, not fair at all to have so much piled on your plate. Some of it *has* to start going right soon, right?

Cheryl said...

Oh no! I am so sorry and the damn rain seriously needs to stop! The most important thing is that he is ok so there is some positive in there. It's just gets harder and harder to see when you keep getting knocked down. I know a thing or two about that :)
Hang in there hon. Also, where are you in the 2ww?

Kandid Kelli said...

Car accidents suck! So sorry that you are having to go through all of this! Glad to hear everybody's ok though.

Elizabeth said...

damn it! So glad Joey is okay, and I hope the Jeep will be too! Why the hell can't we all just get a freaking break!?!

Dawn said...

I am so sorry. It's like when it rains, it pours. I hope all turns around soon and you get a nice run of good luck!

Stephanie said...

I'm so sorry!!!! I'm SO HAPPY to hear he's ok though!! I don't know why bad things happen to good people, I'm strong in my faith and I know everything happens for a reason but gosh, seriously?! You guys definitely deserve some goodness happening to yall like now! Hugs!!

Jessica said...

That sucks..I'm glad he's OK though!! This run of bad luck just isnt't fair. You need a f**king break!!

Crossed Fingers said...

I'm sorry - but I'm very glad Joey is OK. DH was in a horrible accident (roll over) in December and totaled our car. But he walked away from it so I decided that was my gift - the universe was looking out for us. Sometimes you really have to search for the silver lining but they're always there. *hugs*

Do I Have to Be a D.I.N.K.? said...

That really sucks. I am so happy that Joey is not hurt. When I figure out how to catch a break I will send it your way!

Kakunaa said...

Seriously, I'd take a couple of days and hide in the house at this point. I really would. I'm sooooo sorry. I'm glad he is okay, and hopefully the Jeep isn't a total loss!!!

Rach said...

Oh no. I'm so sorry, I'm glad your husband is ok. Car accidents are the worst. Not only do they shake you up emotionally but dealing with insurance, rental cars, and getting the car fixed. YUCK! I'm so sorry luck has not been on your side.

Glass Case of Emotion said...

I am so sorry! I fear my bad luck is now rubbing off on you! This sucks Katie. I am glad to hear Joey is okay but I am sure it was scary and now frustrating. I hope you get your well deserved break soon.

Arlyne said...

giant (((HUGS))) sweetie!!! I'm so sorry, but glad Joey is ok.

Lindsay said...

oh my. Happy to hear he is ok! I hope today is a much better day and you get good news from the insurance.

Danielle said...

ENOUGH Universe! So glad Joey is okay!

Marla said...

AL said...

foxy said...

If I could control the universe, I would most definitely be handing you and Joey a break about now. I don't understand it, but it sure does seem like life kicks you when you're down.

I agree with Kakunaa - Can you go into hiding for a day or two? I had to do that a couple weeks back. If nothing else, it limited the collateral damage of my affect on other people.

sorry girl.

Josey said...

I did the same thing to my car last winter (damn near totaled it - $8k of damage!) and was lucky to walk away. It sucks, but you still have Joey, and that's way more important than a damn vehicle. Doesn't mean you can't be angry though. *sigh*

Erin said...

I am sorry he was in an accident but glad he is okay. I totally know what you mean about getting a break. My husband called me yesterday to tell me he had to spend $700 at the mechanics because they convinced if he didn't fix this part he would die. Okay not quite like that but you know what I mean. I am so angry he didn't get a second opinion.

Gurlee said...

ugh, I am glad he is okay.
The universe better stop fucking with you and give you a break, damn it!

Rebecca said...

OMG!! I'm so glad he's OK. This is f'ing ridiculous!!!!!

waiting and wishing said...

SUCK! I hope things start looking up for you guys SOON!

AplusB said...

NOT fair. I'm so sorry. That sucks. Some better luck better be on its way to you!

A said...

OH gosh. i am so sorry. i wouldn't wish car-crash-awfulness on anyone, especially an IF'er (because we generally deserve smooth-sailing in the entire rest of our lives). (HUG)

T said...

What the f*! Come on freakin universe. Give this girl a break! I am glad Joey is ok.

I have learned in life that luck can be turned around in an instant....I am praying your instant is very soon!

Kim said...

I am so sorry Katie, but happy your hubs is ok, Gosh this certainly isn't fair. Somewhere beneath this pile of crud is a grand prize waiting for you, I just know it. There has to be.....hopefully your at the bottom of the pile now.

someday-soon said...

UGH! I'm so sorry about Joey's accident...happy he's ok though. I'm hoping the universe listens to you this time =)

ifcrossroads.com said...

Aw Katie! No! I'm so sorry to read this but I'm glad that Joey is okay. But for cryin' out loud! Enough already!!!!!!

And I've been meaning to comment on your other post regarding the job interview. I had a very similar thing happen to me last Sept/Oct before my IVF cycle. I got a job offer for the job of a lifetime. It was everything I've ever wanted in my professional career. But it paid less and it required A LOT of travel, which I knew would not be feasible if I ever got pregnant. SO I had to turn it down. It sucked and I cried but you know what? Looking back at it (gosh, almost a year later!) it was the right decision even though it was what I really wanted to do.

I hope you can look back a year later and think the same thing ... but if it wasn't right in your gut, then you know you did the right thing. Even if it does suck to think about right now.

Waiting Lisa said...

I'm glad he is okay. I'm so sorry. I bet he feels awful.I hope your insurance doesn't go up too much :/

Astrid said...

omg, I'm so glad he's ok. there are so many people out there whining and complaining about how shitty their lives are and how they can't catch a break when really it's their own fault because they refuse to make any effort to better their lives or to be optimistic or to take responsibility - and these people give people like you a bad name. That is to say that it really seems like, despite being the most upbeat, energetic, optimistic, action-oriented, refuse-to-sit-on-your-ass-and-feel-sorry-for-yourself type of people, the universe really does seem to be missing out on the memo that enough is enough. I guess this is a long-winded way of saying that you are totally justified in feeling frustrated and angry and it really isn't fair. Not even close. And it breaks my heart to see so much hardship befall such good people. I'm so sorry. Hopefully everything really does come out in the wash - universally speaking - and that there is an s-- load of good luck right around the corner. It's about effing time!

Erin said...

I swear, infertiles get the short end of the stick everywhere. Ted and I are constantly cursing the universe. It seems just when you think something is going right, 10 other things go wrong!

Adele said...

Ugh:( I'm so sorry. Somehow, the universe knows exactly when you're down. And it just keeps coming with its steel-toed boots:(

Alex said...

CRAP - I'm so sorry! I'm glad Joey is ok, but seriously, this bad news has to stop!!!

The Steffens said...

I really think the universe has it out for infertiles. It can never just be infertility, it has to be a whole host of other horrible big things. I, for example, got laid off in the middle of our infertility journey. Still haven't found anything either. And all I could think was, "WTF? Aren't I going through enough? This isn't fair!" And it's not. So very sorry about the car.

jensays (what would jen do) said...

I am just so glad he's ok

CW said...

I know how you feel. Truly I do. Before my first failed IVF I saw a psychic who said that June was going to be a month of celebrations which of course I interpretated as finally I will be pregnant. Well no celebrations but my husband got punched in the face during a football game and needed a root canal, my SIL broke her hand, my new baby nephew went to hospital for a week with breahing issues and I of course am still barren. It totally sucks. I get it. But I do believe at some point it just has to get better!!

Jess said...

Glad to hear hubs is ok. That must have been a scary call to get. I had to answer one in a similar situation a few years ago for my husband. A vehicle is just a possession. That's it. You still have your loved one.

Leslie said...

Oh no!! I am so sorry! I am so glad your DH is safe & OK!! I am sending lots of "universe, listen to you vibes!!"
