    He's at our house too. We need new brakes for the van, we need to make a number of trips into Winnipeg (3 hours one way) and we had to purchase two different types of pills for dh because of his surgery. UGH!!!

    Yup, Murphy needs to go away.

    He is making the rounds. My DH is fixing my brakes, today. One of the back up lights in my DD17s car is out. The back door on the passenger side on my car, the lock is stuck and it won't unlock. But, this too shall pass.

    he was here not too long ago, I would say about a week, it rained 2 days straight and the gutter wasn't keeping the water flowing, in turn we had a flood so to speak in our back bedroom because it was seeping through the window, so we had to fix the gutter and the window, yikes!

    I hope things look up for all of us pretty soon!

    yea here too, it seems when it rains it pours, but he left fast so that was nice, just a little damage this time, we where saleing a car and the person was making payments, he had paid 150 dollars he got in a bad spot and needed the money back, which puts us behind but we will get caught up again and hopefully he can pay us for the car again soon. we just missed our trip to colorado to see dh family but had a great thanksgiving at home with just our family so it worked out well. i just remembered that this to shall pass, my faviorite saying because it is so true.

    He hasn't been here in awhile (knock on wood). I hope he stays away. Sorry for all those Murphy visits you all have been having.

    Sorry to hear that he is paying you a visit. Kick that darned old Muphy to the curb and put your NO TRESPASSERS sign out .

    Yep, he has been here too! tons of car repairs, bathroom redo is not going well, lots of problems which lead to more money spent. the car problems just have to stop at some point right? We are at $1200 now, and our car repair fund is wiped out. Not that I wish him on someone else, I just him to leave here.
