That's right...Mother. Effing. Life!
Sometimes it just plan sucks.
The hot water is out. Master, being the do-it-yourselfer that he is, can fix it, but (and I won't bore you with the details) in order to fix it, some pipes need to be replaced first, which he can do as well but...pain in the ass, I tell you! So, we have no water. He is stressed beyond belief. It's not just the water heater and the pipes, but that his girls don't have water. I love that he takes care of us this way, and that cares so much about it, but it's hard to see him this way and having no way to help.
The week before last, we found out my best friend's grandpa has cancer. It's in the advanced stages--all they can do at the point is try to stop it from spreading more and relieve his pain. My friend is much more than a best friend, she is more than a sister, I've known her since I was eight, and there have been times that she was my only friend. I love her and she is extremely important to my life, and my sanity. I haven't told her about our D/s because it's not worth the risk of loosing her, not that she would leave me, just...I'm not willing to leave it to chance. I digress. When she hurts I hurt, and she is hurting. Her grandpa is a good man, one that has helped countless people and has asked for nothing in return--it infuriates me that this has happened to him and his family! I can't do anything to help her either, not even a freaking hug, because she so far from me.
So, yeah, the two most important people in my life (beside my girls) are going through a stressful time and I can't do a damn thing about it...
Mother. Effing. Life.
