Murphy's Law in action

The past few months have been a whirlwind of activity
with "Murphy's Law" in full force through it all.

You know "Murphy's Law":
"If anything can go wrong...
it will go wrong!"

I've posted about my Mom having cancer,
that in itself is rife with "Murphy's Law" possibilities.
"Murphy's Law" of driving is evident in my recent 
speeding ticket, day in court and briefly mentioned
rain-induced car accident. 
 My daughter in college was given two months to vacate
her apartment which is being torn down for new
apartments giving rise to "Murphy's Law" of moving.
I assume it was "Murphy's Law" of employment
when we were given notice that our satellite office
(3 miles from my home) would be closed and
we would relocate to the corporate office.
All of which, in one way or another, have lead
to "Murphy's Law" of education. I've decided
to go back to school. You guessed it!
Everything that could go wrong...has gone wrong.
I'm determined to be sitting in class on July 7th
but the universe seems to have conspired to keep
me out of that seat; childhood immunizations,
transcripts, money, social security cards,
birth certificates, prerequisites,
travel time, schedules, parking passes, student id's,
physicals, doubts, age.

Sorry universe, Murphy and his law can't keep me down...
I'll be there on July 7th!


  1. So, what have you decided to be when you grow up ? :)

  2. Apparently, you are being sorely tested right now Dena. Hang in there!

  3. Thinking of you, Dena, and hoping that all will go well from this point forward!



  4. It sounds like you have been having a few rough weeks but I will be praying that you begin "school" on July 7th!

    Take care and best wishes,

  5. You go girl! You can do it. The hardest part is getting there, and in your mind you've done it. Good-luck and enjoy your re-education!
