Bad Luck/Good Luck

Funny that it was just St. Paddy’s Day yesterday because we’ve had a mixed bag of good and bad luck.

Bad Luck:
– on day 9/10 of our present FET cycle, DW had some unexpected red blood bleeding. We’re not sure why but it certainly weirded us out.
– we were victims in a car accident on Saturday (not our fault), in which the at-fault driver drove away before we could get his/her licence plate or any real description for the police.
– our stupid insurance provider does not cover car rental, so for this accident we have to pay out of pocket for a rental car while ours gets fixed.
– as a result of the above two bad luck events we have decided to cancel this FET cycle and post-pone it to next month.

Good Luck:
– our school board had to lay off 45 permanent teachers because of shrinking enrolment, and I was 59th from the bottom of the seniority list. I still have a job.
– we were not killed in the car accident. A mere split second difference in timing could have resulted in a tailgate through our windshield and both DW and I, and our dogs, dead.
– as a result of our good fortune mentioned above, and particularly the second one, I’ve decided not to complain about our bad luck any further.

So that’s our update. Baby-making has been delayed by another month. Yay for January babies!

  1. Thank you for spelling St. Paddy’s correctly. I can’t tell you how many times I cringed yesterday with all of the reference to St. Patty.

    Did you pay for the car rental with a credit card by any chance? Many credit cards provide car rental/travel insurance. I had an accident in a rental car 4 years ago and the insurance on my card covered the $5k in costs.

    Are you two okay? I assume so, just wanted to check. I think postponing sounds like a good idea, given all that’s gone on. Next month will be your lucky one. We always have to go through rough times to get to the good.

    • It was our own car actually, which was damaged. We’re okay, thanks. Thanks to DW’s superior reflexes, we managed to swerve out of the way of what could have been a fatal situation. The worst part is trying to manage the hassles of coordinating with the insurance company and getting the car fixed. But I agree, onward to the good stuff!

  2. Good thing you guys are ok! I’m glad to hear that. So sorry you have to postpone baby making, but it sounds like it’s the best for you guys right now.
