It Would Be Easier Sometimes to Change the Past

----My cell phone is irredeemably bricked. I've been without a phone for close to a week.

++++Luckily, it's less than a year since I got it and activated it.

--------------Unluckily, it was three days MORE than a year since I ordered it, and that's the date the 12-month warranty started.

++++++Replacement phone has been found, thanks to [personal profile] ookpik.

--------There's a lot of red tape between me and activation.

---------------Since I see my therapist over the phone, that has meant NO THERAPY.

+My missing therapy seems like a minor issue, relatively speaking.

----------------------------Because not having a working phone meant a long delay in learning some bad family news.

+Nobody's dead. (Knock on wood.)

--------------------------------------We won't know how bad things are, or how much worse they'll get, for several days.

++Maybe by then I'll have a cell phone on which to get the bad news.

---------------------------------------------Oh goodie. More bad news. This is not the kind of situation in which there can be good news. Just bad news and worse news. I'm sorry to be mysterious, but I'm not a frontline player in this particular disaster.

?????These days, the crises in my life generally result from other people's bad decisions or from the emotional stress of cleaning up my own past, not from my doing stupid things in the present. I can't tell if this is a good thing or not.

++We have a cat who likes to nap in a half-opened drawer. So cute to see that little head peeking over the rim.

Yeah, I'm reaching. Sue me.
