    Default Murphy Decided to Tag Along on Our Staycation....

    I really, really, really hate this guy...he decided to make himself at home on our staycation and he doesn't want to leave....I am going to hire a hitman....do anyone of you know of a good hitman? Grrr
    Dh took 2 wks off & we were going to get some things done around here & have some fun w/ the Houseapes. Well.....Murphy decided that it would be a cool idea to tinker w/ the expedition on our anniversary...so now its in the shop & they are so backed up, we don't know when we'll see it again..let alone how much we will have to pay that might not be covered by the warranty we paid for when we bought it....the ac needed emergency work...it flooded the hallway & kitchen, now we have to replace the flooring...the microwave blew up,& the garbage grinder went out, and the doorbell went kaput (finally got that fixed) ...when we were to go the museum, dh got sick.....something had been trying to eat my cantaloupe and pumpkin plants....my parents are sick , & when dh went on top of the roof to measure the wood we would need to replace some rotted wood....he was leaning over the peak to measure when he felt a "pop" & a little bit of pain.....well, the pain got worse & after 2 days of putting up w/ it he went to the docs & found that he had a broken rib! & We discovered that we need a new roof soon. Yikes...then the kitchen sink is leaking and the yard still needs to be mowed and we still have to get the schoolbooks down from the attic b/c school is starting for us right after labor day.......& dd#2 needs consoling - OY!! Did I mention that I hate Murphy? Grrr. Thanks for letting me rant...I feel better...I think. ( I really want to type in some very ugly names for this pesty guy.....but I don't think that would be very nice of me...okay...I'll say it & claim righteous indignation - he's an a**hole)
    I am thankful that we still have HA's at home to help w/ the heavy lifting/work.

    How terrible for so many things to go wrong with one family all at once! Keeping all of you in thoughts and prayers and praying things will get better ASAP! After all you have been through, you have every right to be irritated, if these things happened to me, I would be to.

    Oh do I ever hear ya! It's like that around here too. No such thing as an "occasional" breakdown. As soon as one thing goes, I'm armed and ready to count on a few more. I just sigh and shake my head and hope it doesn't hurt too much....lol! It just totally stinks that it happened during your staycation though! But of course Murph never did plan well !

    Hope Murphy blows away and you can salvage some time and better health out of all of all this!

    For now hang in there! It will get better.

    Or a bottle of Crown & a rubber mallet.lol Got the vehicle back and its fixed. Looking on the bright side of things....the original cost was over 1200....but we only had to pay 578 for the stuff that wasn't covered (vehicle had alot of things going on) & hopefully now we'll get better gas mileage. Guess the other stuff that broke down will just have to wait until another time to repair. Thankful we're not in debt for any of it...but the EF is fading pretty fast....Got a dh that needs rapairing - he's in alot of pain...so I have to focus on him more than anything right now. Ya'll are wonderful - thanks
