I'm not even kidding. Let me tally up the things that have fallen apart in my household in the last month. Ahem.

1. The brakes on my car. (Got those fixed.)

2. My air-conditioner in my house. (Still, as of this moment, broken.)

3. My vacuum cleaner. Which, by reason of #2, has become doubly inconvenient because the dogs have begun to shed like mad.

4. My washing machine. Dirty clothes have begun to pile up. In a house with no air ventilating through it. Yuck.

5. My weed eater AND lawn mower BOTH. SERIOUSLY? My yard is looking so Boo Radley-ish right now.

6. The cursor on my lap-top has taken on a mind of its own, flits about the screen, or is just plain unresponsive.

I need to start being grateful REALLY QUICKLY for the things that ARE WORKING so that my attitude can shift. Otherwise, I'm going to totally FUH-REAK out.

4 Things not left unsaid:

Whoa! That is a lot of brokenness at once. The A/C has got to be the worst - I'm so sorry! I hope that, and everything else, is repaired quickly and conveniently. High hopes!

OMG that sucks! Put AC on the top of the to-fix list stat!

Completely new AC is required--may take a couple of months...:( AC's are really expensive in high season.

Oh WHOM did you offend in a past life...???
I am burning a candle for you for the rest of the year.
