Murphy's Law and Bad Luck in Threes (or Fours, Fives, and Sixes...)


Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong, right?

Obviously. As if I'm not already stressed out from moving with two little kids, a dog, and a husband who hates to pack and clean as much as I do - in under a month -- just this week our DVD player broke, our TV on/off button broke and (the icing on the cake) the screen to my laptop went out.

That would be bad luck in threes, right? But also, my apartment complex wont let us pay to break our lease, my grandmother has been seriously ill in the hospital (she is finally home and recovering nicely), and we lost a library book. And Gracie has been throwing about four full out, kicking and screaming tantrums a day (combination of the stress of moving, being a three year old, and the nasty intestinal parasite she has been dealing with for the last few weeks... seriously, what gives?).

Plus, I have gained about three lbs from stress eating in only four days...

So, without further griping, let me just say that I may be gone for a few days.

No, I wont be at an all-inclusive resort lounging under an umbrella with a tropical cocktail in hand while the cool waves of the Caribbean Sea lap at my pedicured toes.

No, I wont be at a health spa, wrapped in a luxurious cream-colored robe, after being covered in a detoxifying herbal wrap while waiting for my Indo-Asian Hot Oil Massage.

And no, I wont be sitting outside a cafe with a pastry and a cappuccino, along the canals of Venice while sexy Italians sing as their gondolas float past...

I will, most certainly, be screaming my head off, tearing my hair out, and wondering if I will ever get my sanity back.

Not looking good at the moment.

It is very upsetting just moving, then to have other things go wrong..
Hope it all calms down for you..

Dang, if you were hanging out with the sexy Italians, I would probably come by to keep you company!

I hope this is the worst of it. Hang in there :o)

Poor Girl. You need a brake. I wish I could help.
Hang in there and give me a call if you need to talk. (Is your phone still working?)
Just keep next July's calm in mind. This can't go on forever.

moving is bad enough on its own! yikes!

Oh I'm so sorry things are so difficult. I knew something had to be up when there was no action for over a week. Hope when things settle down you will have a chance to look at the link I sent to you via etsy. I think you will be very interested!!

Oh hun, I really hope it goes better for you. It will turn around, you will see. You just have too much going on at once. There's only so much a person can handle.

Good luck!

In time your luck will change - until then, take things one day at a time.

Ooooooo. You just sent me on a mental mini-vacation. Wish I could do the same for you, girlfriend. Hang in there. The sh*t-storm will pass. *hugs*

Hugs to you.

Hang in there. I can totally relate. This post made me smile...not at your misery, but at the thought that someone else out there UNDERSTANDS!! lol
