Question of the Day IV

posted by Momo Fali on June 18, 2010

So, you know how your husband’s transmission needs to be repaired and the bill is over $2000, and that same night you realize that your refrigerator stopped working, and then then next day your car won’t start and you can’t even get your hood open, so you have to wait for AAA to come rescue you, and then your dog jumps up to get a ball off of the mantle, because that’s where balls belong, and she knocks down your big picture and a crystal candle holder, you know…the one that’s part of a pair…and there are glass shards everywhere, but that’s okay because you have plenty of time to pick them up since the refrigerator repairman said he’d be there sometime between 8:00 and 5:00?

Yeah. Me too.

    Oh, my dear Lord, this can't all be happening. Can it? You must have I Dream of Jeanie moments every other day when you just want to blink yourself somewhere else.

    Of course I'd be more UPset about he crystal candle holder than anything else.

    My Tuesday was like that,overslept, flat tire, dentist appointment that went from one crown to two, and the Jesus caught on fire.

    It sucked!

    Visiting your blog from Everyday Goddess. If all this happened in one day I certainly hope you have smooth sailing for many months from now on. This is a lot to handle all at one time.

  • Eva Gallant

    Wow…fun day. Hope things get better!

    By law the repairmen are supposed to give you a four-hour window, no more. The picture looks okay? Does the transmission have one of those hidden-warranty things, where the car company pays for them because they're all bad but doesn't advertise the fact? Let's see, what other pieces can I try to pick up from here, trying to make it a little better… Good luck!

    Well, since you have to wait between 8-5, you might as well break out a glass of wine!
