Can Anything Else go Wrong?

missing the deadline at the Vet's office to take the cat to boarding.
getting a second chance to deliver cat to vet's office if we can be there in 10 minutes.
running out of gas in the car on the way home from dropping off the cat.
husband to the rescue, as he takes truck and trailer to scales to check the weight.
serious fishtail action happening while driving the highway at 45 mph.
while getting gas in gas can for the car, and refueling the truck, a leak is spotted. big yellow is leaking fuel.

I am going to laugh, I've decided because otherwise I am going to sit down and weep with frustration. if we didn't have a customer waiting (who has already paid his 60% deposit) we could scrap this whole thing. But we can't. We have to fulfill our commitment and get this job done.

Bruce is calling around getting rental costs for a heavy duty truck made for towing this trailer. Of course in addition to the added expense is the precious commodity of time. We need the carpenters tools which abide inside the back of Big Yellow. And did I mention that part of the load is also in the back of the truck? Yah, so in addition to unloading and reloading the shed kit, we need to pack his tools over. It's a lot of work yet to do today, and that's AFTER we find a truck to rent.

I know these are just details that  may seem boring to my readers but this is our livelihood and it's sucking us dry at this moment. I don't even want to think about how in the hole we are in this particular job but it's deep. We have had our times of troubles but this job has brought us to new heights-- or is it lows?

I don't really even know what to pray for right now. Safe travels certainly but we've been praying that since the beginning. I just don't know what to make of all this.
