Solved and Done, Hello?

Why can't problems just be solved and done? While I was at Multwood tonight, Carry replaced the brakes and rotors on my car. Driving home, I noticed a burning smell and a slight pull to the left. I pulled over and called him. He said it was burning the grease off the parts and that it would work itself out as I drove it. It didn't. When I put the brakes on, it really likes to go to the left. So tomorrow, I am taking it back by after he gets off work and he'll take a look at it. Tigers do not like burning smells coming from their cars.

As I was driving, I was thinking about how much stress I have been living with in my life these last few months. Between everything, it's at constant, high level which I know is not good for me. I am praying things work themselves out but in the meantime, it's, well, stressful!

Besides the car issue, the last two days have been really nice. I have been working a lot on a variety of things, taxes now being at the top of the list. This afternoon, I even had a fun time going around the capital grounds with camera taking pictures of the spring flowers and people enjoying the park. The last part of this week, I am volunteering at a library. I am really looking forward to it. It will be a nice, quieter time in the midst of this juggling act I call my life.

"Why can't problems just be solved and done?"
As Scott Peck put it in "The Road Less Traveled",(paraphrasing Buddha)-- "Life is Difficult"!
