Bad things happen in threes

Category: Random bulletins from my brain | Posted: Sun Sep 10, 2006 4:10 pm

Or as Randy said about 3:30 yesterday afternoon, "and the hits just keep on a comin'"

Tuesday on his way home from work, the right front tire on his pickup truck blew out about 20 minutes into his journey. Meaning he was on the side of a very busy highway changing the tire. About 15 minutes later, the spare he had put on started shredding and sending chunks of itself flying everywhere bending the fender and breaking out a light on the side of the fender. It didn't go flat and being only 15 minutes away from home, he was able to take an earlier exit and drive home on backstreets at about 10 miles per hour. He worked from home on Wednesday and Two new tires were bought on Thursday, $183.00

Friday morning was his normal everyother Friday off so we were going to start installing the wall of shutters to make my room more private. I had a load of laundry in the dryer and another one just starting in the washer when he passed by the bathroom and found water gushing up from both the bathtub and the toilet and in the process of covering the floor. Called a plumber and started taking stuff out of the bathroom....this is the only bathroom we have so while waiting for the plumber we did have to make a couple of trips to a local fast food establishment to use their facilities. Plumber arrived about 3 and cleared out the sewer line from our house to the city sewer line out in the alley. Bathroom usable again, $124.50.

Saturday we had the grandsons for the day. I had made a quick trip to the grocery store, opened the pantry door to put things up to find that water was about 1/4" deep and rising on the floor. The central AC drain line on the other side of one wall of the pantry had stopped up and water was overflowing. Thankfully this was something that Randy could take care of so no repair person was called upon to provide us with yet another bill for services rendered.

The shutters are still leaning against the wall and will be until at least next payday.

Gosh Toni what a run of bad luck you've been having and no mistake. Let's hope the water in the pantry was the third and final thing and that from now on your luck will be nothing but good.

Please just keep in mind, yes those things are inconvenient and make our days that much more unpleasant, but as long as you and everyone you love are healthy and happpy, inconveniences are just that. Try to keep that in mind, and your days like that won't seem so bad.
