Everything at our house is breaking. I think we might be cursed.
The clothes washer stopped spinning (replacement, $200 from Craigslist).
The ipad started randomly typing things, opening apps, going to websites all on its own (demon exorcism, free but it didn’t work, bye-bye ipad, sob).
The dishwasher started making the dishes MORE dirty (SuperCoolHubby was able to fix it, YAY)(isn’t it funny how, as you get older, different things start to be totally hot in a guy?).
I’m zipping down the road at 60 mph and the car just turns off. I had to coast to the road side with barely any brakes. Scary! (Fuel distributor, $700 [passes out]).
The sound part of the remote stopped working (you now have to literally get up to change the volume, its a nightmare).
Car breaks down AGAIN, (catalytic converter, will be $700 AGAIN but we’re considering getting a different car because it also needs brakes, $600, and two tires $500 [passes out AGAIN]).
The hot water heater exploded (replacement, $550 [fall into a coma from all the head injuries from passing out so many times]). Just got that fixed yesterday, washed two loads of laundry in the new (used) machine, did two loads of dishes (in the old, fixed machine), and took two baths (sweet jesus I needed that).
For heaven’s sake! This has all been in the last SIX WEEKS. I am afraid to get out of bed! What is going to break next??? Thank goodness I got some cash for my birthday, which saved our patooties, but even so, our finances are wrecked. (Plus, I didn’t get to spend it on fun birthday presents. Booooo.) Please! No more, no more! Uncle! I can’t take the stress!
This just happens sometimes, right? All the bulbs in the house go at once. It’s not like any of these things are serious. We aren’t ill. No one is bombing our city. We have plenty to eat. It’s not so bad, right?
Still. Maybe I’ll just lie here quietly under the covers and wait for the dark star I am under to pass.
UPDATE: So, just when I thought maybe we were good…a loose connection on the new hot water heater caused a short, tripping the main circuit breaker…and it broke. Meaning we couldn’t turn the power back on. Cost to get an electrician out here and install a new one? $520.
I had an honest to god panic attack, my face went numb, difficulty breathing, the works. For heaven’s sake, right? I need an evil eye deflector or something! This kind of bad luck can’t be naturally occurring.
