Well, I thought last year was bad but I ain’t never had a year like this one. Whereas last year when my Tarot Card Of The Year was The Devil I felt under massive pressure, this year in The Tower everything has been going to hell at the speed of light.
My eldest daughter’s health has been in crisis since the start of the year and no matter how hard I try I can’t get her proper care. Even though I have a pretty good idea what’s wrong with her. Even though I know what services we need to access. It’s like we’re stuck in cement leaning forwards getting nowhere. We’re up to her fourth hospital admission in two months right now. But still her health practitioners nod and smile and do nothing.
Meanwhile I had to help my younger daughter move out of home and head off to uni. This involved a complete switch of furniture between several rooms and several houses. Not to mention copious form filling.
Meanwhile I’m teaching my own grade in my own classroom for the first time which is full-on and nerve wracking at the same time.
Meanwhile I’m running between work and hospital. Spent two long nights in emergency this week alone.
Today the government sent me a bill for $2000 for some obscure overpayment four years ago. Four years ago, seriously? Not my fault they can’t keep their books in order.
So I apologize again for my absence. But there you go, the last few cards in Life Lessons Tarot (aka the Major Arcana) really are doozies. I’ve never had a year like this. Not even last time I had The Tower card. It’s not all bad of course. There are some amazing blessings in my life. My youngest is happy and very self-sufficient. My health has never been better. I’m loving my job. But it’s definitely testing my nerves.
Anyone else having a doozy of a year?
