We are having really wierd bad luck this month with the finances. Our pipes are old and we've been having to have them snaked once a year to clear the blockage (or else sewage comes up into the basement sink! ew), but now this isn't working, and we'll have to spend about $3000 to fix the pipes, and then our yard will look like hell cause we can't afford landscaping. I'm worried we'll lose all the trees and bushes on that side.
My husband decided to clean the VCR and has somehow broken it. Now he's just come in and said the "service" lights on the car keep coming on. For pete's sake, I am getting so fed up with this. There are cosmetic things I'd like to spend my money on; like every time the weather changes or we have a slight tremor, cracks appear everywhere. Like my kids bounced on the chair one too many times (told them not to) and broke it, and now we have to cover up this big hole with a cushion. I'm fed up with feeling like white trash family in our middle class neighbourhood just because our house seems to be falling apart. (Also feel house is disloyal, because I love house, yet it keeps breaking).
Guess I need to take that full-time job if they offer it to me. (get ready for round one of Money versus Life if I do get it).
P.s. I forgot, when my potatoes had about 20 minutes left to cook in the oven today for Thanksgiving dinner, the stove decided it was tired and stopped baking. *@!!&^*%. Stove is 1947 cutie which I rescued and which my husband is itching to get rid of. I really hope it's just fuses and that this does not give him an excuse to buy a new stove. Love, love, love retro stove.
