Mean,bad & ugly

Thursday, August 04, 2011

This has been a mean, bad & UGLY year and it is only the beginning of August! Since January, we have had to have a new roof (supposedly it had a new one on it when we bought the house...they had an unlicensed guy do the work), $6000

The air conditioner went out and cost us $250

Next, we had to finish putting new windows in the house and a new set of glass doors...$6400.

Right after that was completed, the engine went out in my truck....$3200

THEN, TONIGHT, the air conditioner went out AGAIN!!! Luckily we know someone who knows someone....cost....$300 for other new parts.....

So, I am really, really looking forward to a new year, because I can NOT take much more!!! I will be losing weight because with all of this (*&_, we won't be able to buy FOOD!!!! I would ask if things could get worse but, I am smarter than that knowing for a fact that YES, they actually can...

For now, I am going to close, go to bed and hope this was all a really bad dream..... emoticon

    Sorry your air has been on the fritz. It is so hot to be without A/C. It is hard to think in the heat. You have had a tough year. You didn't even mention that you had both arms in a cast and surgeries, too, and could not even feed yourself for a while. Yes, I would strongly predict that 2012 will be a much, much better year. However, don't wish Aug 8 - Dec 2011 away!! The end of your year could end up being the best time ever!!! Perhaps right now is the time for you to achieve something you have always wanted to do?? You took a big step to reclaim some of your weekend time. Now you can turn that into something you feel really good about!! Take care. Thanks for the sweet comment on my Wizard of Oz picture. -Marsha

    And hopefully the handymen were at least good eye candy ;)

    Oh, no - I can sympathize - we had to have our AC repaired this summer, also and the unit was new last year.

    Oh, no!!! Did you have to sit all day today in the heat??? I sure hope not! I'm sending you positive thoughts that things will get better soon!
