When it rains, it pours!

Funny thing about the universe ... the minute you plan for a big expenditure, a lot of little ones start popping up, too. It's like everything in the house starts yelling: "Me! Me! Pay attention to me!"

We no sooner hired the painters for the outside work, than:

  • The TV screen went dark (got sound, no picture).

  • My cell phone screen has an odd splotch ... broken pixels, methinks.

  • The water filter leak defies our attempts to fix it ... so it's got to come out.

  • The toilet needs new 'innards'.

  • Of course, that doesn't include the chain saw that has to be replaced and the lawnmower that a new handle, and the new floor for the kitchen ...

    Sigh ... one thing at a time ...

    I hear ya, sister. We were saving up to get new carpet, but we discovered a leaky shower pan in our bathroom that had caused damage to the floor and walls, and well...about $5K later, we got a whole new bathroom remodel. This was 4 years ago, and we still haven't replaced the carpet.
