I swear my birthday has been cursed since my sweet 16, literally it was 16 candles with out the hot Jake. This year is no exception, I am trying to keep my chin up – BUT COME ON ALREADY!!!
Last week while Darling Husband went down to lock up the cabin, a piece on the truck broke and nothing worked, literally nothing. An easy fix, but it took us days to figure it out once he finally got home and I had to call for rides or take a cab to work while he was gone.
Then the stove quits working – right before the holiday and you know you have to have a stove for the holidays. Luckily, a friend had one that they couldn’t use as it was gas and his wife wanted electric. We get it hooked up, and the same piece that broken on the first one was broken on the second. We just got the piece in yesterday and it took all day to get it fixed.
Sunday, the only cooking appliance that worked – the microwave – starts on fire while I am trying to heat up water. WATER! We had an old one in storage, but the glass plate was broke and the display doesn’t work. It will get us by til Darling Husband gets his first check, but you have to be really careful not to put in 10 min instead of 1 min.
My phone has been hit and miss ever since we turned it back on. Sometimes the calls and messages come in, sometimes they don’t. Darling Husband has the same phone and is having no issues.
Then, Just Today, I broke the belt in the vacuum – not once but TWICE! I go to the store to grab a soda, NO BRAKES! I limp the damn truck home in rush hour traffic. Come inside start to mop the floor and it falls apart in my hands. F-it. I then go to unload the dishwasher and everything is still wet, they dryer element broke.
I think that I may have proven to Darling Husband that my birthday is truly cursed, next year, I am staying in bed for a week. He will have to do it all. Who knows what will blow up in the next few days, I still have two days to go.
LOL, what can you do but laugh.
