Murphy’s Law Strikes Again

December 17, 2011

You know Murphy’s Law right?  The one that says if anything CAN go wrong it WILL? Well it did.

I read a corollary once too…that said it would go wrong at the worst possible time. Guess what? It did.

My hubby is no longer among the gainfully employed. Just before Christmas. Does that suck or what?

Even worse the bills haven’t gone away. And I can tell you for an absolute fact that Lawyers fees suck.

And I had a birthday. Which is better than not having one I admit…but those numbers keep going up! I’m getting old.

The hormones are changing too. I’m not sure I can handle a man being underfoot all day. I’ll have to hire him out for some ditch digging if nothing else.

Does anyone want to buy some advertising space? I have some available.

And to top it all off I was going to get on rafflecopter to moderate a giveaway and start another one…but they wouldn’t let me! They claim there has been a volcanic explosion! LOL. I really like that 404 page.

I’ll get my next review/giveaway post up this evening or tomorrow. After Rafflecopter gets everything cleaned up.

Time do get tough. My family has had some problems with layoffs and cutbacks, along with a surgery taking place. But we’re all hanging in there just fine, I’m sure you will too!

hi i know how you feel my husband has not worked for 3 years he is 61 and know one is going to hire him now, and i am disabled have been for 20 years. i wish you the best for the upcoming year. they say things are changing. some poeple are getting hired. I really think it depends on education and age myself I know he drives me crazy. the best thing is to get all those thing s done around the house. That will keep him busy. Sorry again Best wishes for the new Year Joannie

Hi Joannie :) Yep I have him doing some of the things he didn’t have time for while he was working. We are also fixing up my grandmothers house. He just got the floor put down today! We also go the bathroom painted. There is lots of cleaning that needs to be done there as well.

Hi Elle,
I’m sorry to hear about some things not going right for you at the moment. Christmas is my favorite time of the year and for things to go awry at this time will also be tough for me.
For me this year has been a mixture of good fortune, bad decisions, success and failure but I’m hopeful that the coming year will be better and there will be more of the good stuff.
Hope that things will get better for you too!
