I'm quite sure that some of you experienced similar chain of unpleasant events when one wrong thing follows another. Just a few words before I come to the main point. The sea got colder and my Prince switched swimming in the sea with jogging. I joined him while my Ivy can't. We decided to jog around the block when it rains, and when it's dry, we'll jog up and down of our hill. Since it is constantly rainy, we jog around the block. He carries his gun for our protection and we hold hands while jogging. We stop from time to time to smooch and while my lips were cold as my breath, his lips and breath was very warm. I was tempted to fuck him right on empty bus station few times and believe me I would if he wouldn't have a "problem" with sex in public. I'm completely opposite; I have no shame and I like to have a sex in public. But, I fucked him under the shower when we arrived home. My Ivy will be fully 6 months pregnant in 4 days. She does exercises for pregnancy and she is practicing martial arts. My Prince dies laughing when she is trying to do side and front kicks. She can't do it well because of the baby. She is still very fast in arms, but very slow in leg technique which is understandable. We love to lay our heads on her tummy and feel baby's kicks on our cheeks before we showered it with kisses, "love you's" and singing. My Ivy laughs hard on Prince jokes when he sees baby's movements. He comments something like: "Lieutenant Ripley, I think one of them is in you" or " Oh, noooooo .... help, she carries an alien" referring to the scenes from Alien movies. I don't see it funny that much because she is carrying a baby GIRL. He didn't make such jokes when I carried his son. It looks like he knows what type of humor my Ivy likes. I love my son with all my being but I can't wait to hold her daughter in my arms and do girlish things with her. She is gonna be most beautiful girl in the whole world because I as her second mother will make sure of it.
Shit started to happen last night when my mom and dad got the flue. Zdenka went to their home to nurture them and help in everything they need. My mom heavily cried over the phone for she and dad wouldn't be able to come on morning coffee to our house and spend the time with us and Mikey. I managed to comfort her. The second one was after we put Mikey to sleep. My Ivy likes to watch "DC Titans" and when she saw on the net that new episode is out, she turned on TV which started to smoke. HDMI cable burned near connector causing electricity damage to our plasma TV. (We connected our PC with TV via HDMI cable so we can have bigger picture when we watch some online movie or series). And problems continued on next day - today. I brought my laptop and my tablet to the work. During data synchronization my tablet reported unrecoverable error and switched off. Since it didn't want to start OS I did hard reset. During OS recovery it froze on 42% two times. After second time it didn't want to start at all. It had a black screen. I asked our guys who maintain Hotel server and computers if they can fix it and they say they can, but not before Tuesday. I can't wait that long and I asked my Fran to take it to the special service for smart phones and tablets. They fix it but it cost me a fortune. My Ivy called TV service after morning coffee with mom and dad Boss, my Fran and Zdenka. They couldn't fix the damage. It was fatal. Do you think that was the end of a bad day? No, it was just the beginning. My Ivy put Mikey's laundry into washing machine. It broke during centrifuge and it flooded our bathroom. She called my Prince who rushed home and collected water. He called the repair service and they fixed washing machine. Again, it cost a lot of money. Our microwave got broken during warming up Mikey's food and when my Prince wanted to go to downtown to buy new TV and microwave, the car battery died. Thank god for friends. My Ivy called Antonio who came with two electricians who checked our fuse box, electric wires and electricity stability. They said that we have no problems with in electric installations. There is a possibility that transformer in the neighborhood delivered bad/unstable electricity power or we simply had very bad day. Antonio and my Prince went to down town and bought new TV, microwave and a battery for his car. Well, the Hotel will cover car battery but it is fucking unbelievable how many things can go wrong in one day. These unplanned expenses almost emptied our house budget. We are split of the hair far from going into minus.
You know what is very interesting? I was very furious when unfortunate events started to happen. My Ivy was quite nervous too and we both swore a lot and cursed. My Prince? Listen, Trilog, I do not idealize him, but he was most calmed person in our family. He tried to calm us but his calmness irritated me and I asked him quite nervously:
- How come that all of this crap doesn't bother you? Is it because you know we have money and we can afford things?
You know what he said to me; what had to come from my ass to my brain as we use to say in our country?
Prince: Princess, it does bother me. I'm not indifferent and it is not because we can afford to buy things ...... You see, when my father was alive we have similar periods too. We didn't have much things and expensive things but when it happened to us, my mother was furious and she was mean to all of us especially to him. Do you know what he said to her? He said: "Honey, there are things out of our power and control. Since we can't influence on them, I see no point of freaking around, yelling and attacking family members. They are not guilty for unfortunate chain of events. Your behaving is contra productive and doesn't help anyone." So I learned to handle with it. I learned to live without being attached to material things. I can live with them and I can live without them. It doesn't mean I don't care if something that I like and need breaks, but I accept it. I'm angry only when it was my fault. I only blame myself, no one else. But, the only thing that could make me deeply agonized, depressed and disappointed is losing you and Ivy and our children. You matters to me more than anything in the world.
I thought about those words and very soon I felt ashamed. I cried and I showered him with kisses apologizing for my behaving. After that I went to my Ivy and Mikey and did the same. Indeed, nothing is more valuable then my family. Things got broken and we try to fix them. If they can't be fixed we throw them away. But, broken hearts are harder to fix. If we care for our material things more than for our loved ones, we can heavily hurt them and the consequences are unimaginable. I learned a valuable lesson today.
