PostSubject: When it rains.........It pours!   Wed Jun 27, 2007 10:04 am

The old expression, "When it rains, it pours" is haunting my life right now......................Ranting Do you ever have those times when one thing goes wrong, a whole bunch more follows?

I had to replace the battery and alternator in my Expedition a week ago, my oldest son says the rear tires are needing replaced (front ones were replaced in December). Our water softener got hit by the storm the other day, had the repair guy come and fix it last night. After he left it in its 'cleaning cycle' my 2 boys come in saying the floor is flooded and the carpet is wet.....the machine is stuck in the one cycle and the water is running over. So, I am mopping the floor, turning fans towards the wet carpet area (can't seem to locate the shop vac to vacuum the water up) and getting electrical things out of the floor and puddles heading their way. I call the repair guy only to get his message machine. He finally calls me after 11:00 pm; I am in bed, asleep...........he will come today and see what he missed...............And to top it all off, between the neighbors animals, our animals and the hatching of fleas, we have bug bombed the house 2 times and still have the little boogers. I called the pest control and they want $95+ tax for the first spray and then will come every 3 months and spray again for $65+ tax each time. I guess I need to go out and fertilize my money tree in the backyard, it seems this is going to be an expensive summer...............No

{{{Rhonda}}} What a mess! I saw a sign that said "I try to take things one day at a time.......but lately, several have ganged up on me at once". Sounds like several are ganging up on you, too!

Aw that's terrible Rhonda. Sometimes life's a bed of roses, other times it's a mess of thorns.

I've got so many thorns sticking out I look like a confused porcupine.grinsmiley

Hang in there Rhonda.Thumbsup

Rhonda, not much I can say to you other than I know how you are feeling and I'm thinking about you often!! This "bend in the road" you are going through right now has to straighten out eventually!! Keep your chin up!!

Sorry to hear about all this, Rhonda! It is true - when it rains, it pours! Sending hugs and sunshine your way, I hope things get better soon!

My goodness, Rhonda, you're not exaggerating! I'm really hoping that things are calming down for you now! Ugh! I don't know why things always happen that way; all at once.

Thanks everyone........I figured I would get through all of this, but then was reminded that I needed to pay the balance on my middle son's church camp tuition.........He leaves Sunday, so he will be carrying it with him............... :think:

***sigh***
