The Pity Party Saga (continued…)


Do you remember this post? The one where I whined and complained about…um, everything. The one where I implied that our world was imploding right before our very eyes. The one where I felt sorry for myself and unpleasantly begged for ya'll to feed me handfuls of WORMS! {Big fat juicy ones. Eensie weensy squeensy one.} The one where my clever sista' joked:
"Aren't you so excited to do dishes by hand in cold water watching a black screen on your man TV, soothing Jace with a little whiskey cause you're out of the "good stuff" using masking tape to clean your floors and hide out while your bangs grow in your glowing orange house!!!"
Well,
I. WANT. THOSE. DAYS. BACK!!
Because since then… Our car suffered a Star Spangled death on the Fourth of July. In return… Spence’s truck felt ignored and started dripping massive amounts of radiator fluid. And… Brynlee accidentally left a stack of library books in the clubhouse on her Swingset. We watered the lawn and therefore, the books. Then… We were informed that Spence’s company was requiring all employees to take two more weeks FORCED TIME-OFF WITHOUT PAY!
And... Remember how I gave a "thumbs up" to Behr paint for offering us free paint to repaint the gallons and gallons of Orange paint we had liberally applied to our house. Yeah... So far we've received a combined total of ZERO dollars and ZERO cents! Oh, but it gets better… We found a dripping pipe in our crawl space. Turns out… The broken pipe was located SOMEWHERE in the wall BEHIND the kitchen cabinets. Guess what… To access the pipe the cabinets had to be removed. And there’s more… There was mold. So… We are sitting in a hotel room while a restoration company…well, restores! But as a plus… I’ve stopped drinking Diet Coke! But as a negative… I’ve taken a liken to Vodka. Oh, I kid... I can’t give up Diet Coke. So, I mix Vodka & Diet Coke. They say that bad things come in groups of three. What a crock of I disagree!

I figured out the reason for our bad luck lately...it is because of all those e-mails I never forwarded. I suppose in their defense I was warned.

Maybe that is your problem too!?
