Why Me??

I have not been having the greatest 3 weeks...

Happening 1: My uncle passed away on 21/03/2012 due to sudden heart attack. I last saw him during Iman and Ranya's Aqiqah. At least my last memories of him area very happy one but I feel so sorry for cousins. They are too young to lose their dad. May Allah bless his soul *Al-Fatihah*

Happening 2: Iman and Ranya was hospitalised for bronchitis. Actually this hospitalization was a personal choice. They've been coughing for the past 2 weeks. I went to our normal paediatrician and initially they were getting better so I stopped giving them meds for 3 days. The day after my uncle funeral Iman starts developing sty in her eye which I thought was conjunctivitis. I drag the twins to DEMC for a check up, and it turns out that they have develop bronchitis. Doctor gave me the option of giving more meds to the girls or allowing them to be ward up for 4 hourly nebulizer treatment.

Having experienced this with Ryan, Lan and I decided that we're going to admit the girls to the hospital before it became worst. Alhamdullilah since the infection was minor and treatment was done fast. The girls was discharged after 2 days. Upon doctor's advice they stayed home for a week, where my parents, sister, Lan and myself took turns to take care of them. They are so much better now and I thank Allah that my family is willing to go all out to help.

Happening 3: We stayed at my parents for the whole week after the girls was hospitalised since it is easier for everyone to help take care of my 3 babies. We only drop by the house for a few minutes to pick up stuff. So yesterday since everything has settled down, we came back home to a huge pile of laundry and mess :p That turned out to be the least of my concern because I found out that a fuse exploded  due to the heavy rain on Friday thus damaging my living hall fan and lamp. As if that is not bad enough, when I went into Ryan's room to on his lights something exploded and the top floor went dark. Thank god only Ryan's room lamp is effected but that still means that we have to repair/change one ceiling fan and 2 ceiling lamps :(

Happening 4: Who says bad things only come in 3s?? This morning I got into a bumper accident. It is my fault, it was raining and after trapped in a horrible jam I was a bit out of sorts and my car kinda skidded forward when I wanted to break. I'm fine (thanks for asking :p) but obviously my car bumper and the car of the woman I hit was bumped. Not that bad la but that means MORE $$$ flushed out of my hands. At least my car is still in perfect driving condition, just buruk mata memandang je la.

With me drawing 1/2 salary due to the unpaid leave I took in February, I have to be triple careful with my spending this month. Nasib baik next month "kaya" balik but by the looks of things there's gonna be a lot of expenses that needed to be covered. Argghhh the joy of being an adult -_-

I'm in a "whatever" mode at the moment. I could sit hear questioning myself or god "why me? why me?" but the answer is pretty simple "why NOT me?". I'm trying to work out some possible solution, praying that Allah will assist in making things easier for me and my family. I'm sure there's a silver lining somewhere, I  just need to find it.

Yeah things may not be that great but it could be worse and for that I'm thankful. Alhamdullilah!!
