    Default when it rains it pours

    I'm starting to believe it. First the toilet broke, then the living room fan broke, then the washer which is toast and have to get a new one, had totake dh to emergency room he has brochial p-monia and won't be able to go to work til lat tleast Monday and now they're calling for 3-5 inches of snow (YICH!) Just when I think I can some on here and tell you some good news it starts all over again. Will it ever stop???

    Hey wait. Dh got a lottery ticket when we stopped for gas. Guess what??He won. Not a fortune but enought to get a washer, pay off the car and groceries. But not enough to stop the snow. Maybe things are looking up, Of course we have to wait on the money but at least it's coming

    What a great turn of "luck" for you. I am so happy that you can get some things you need and don't have to worry where the money is coming from.
