Cause its one, two, three...
You know how you get that piece of news that just shakes your world to its very foundations? Everything is about to change and you’re not sure whether it’s going to be for the better or not. Sometimes life just throws a curve ball at you when you were expecting the slider and all you can do is stand at the plate with the bat on your shoulder while the pitch sails right on by you for a called strike.
If only you’d known what was heading your way you’d have done things differently. You might have done some research or prepared for the event. Once you’re caught by surprise there’s nothing you can do but react and hope that your decision is the right one. Whatever you decide to do, you’re going to be living with the consequences for a long time. Sometimes life just comes at you so fast...
Yeah, you’ve probably guessed what I’m talking about by now and chances are pretty good that you find yourself in the very same situation. Do you remember where you were when you heard the news? Were you enjoying your lunch and listening to the radio in the break room? Maybe you were at home watching the Ellen show? I was in the computer room working on a blog post when Felicia called and told me the news.
At first I didn’t believe her and I told her so. I think it may have hurt her feelings a bit that my reaction wasn’t more positive, but like I said sometimes you’re caught by surprise when the curve ball comes at you. I asked her if she was sure and she told me she’d double checked and wouldn’t have called me if it wasn’t a sure thing.
So now I’m looking at a new addition to our humble home. I thought one would make me happy forever, but the thought of a second one is kind of exciting too. And to think it wouldn’t even be possible without the government’s help. Oh yeah, without the twelve hundred dollar tax rebate check Felicia and I are expecting this opportunity wouldn’t even be possible.
Either way, I think my family will be much better off than we were before...

I'm just hoping things don't improve too much before I get the rebate check in the mail.
