Things that go wrong while your hubby is away...


(AKA... I'm about ready to pull my hair out and run away.... )

1. The tv that was just purchased last year completely stops working. Of course this would happen 1 day after the warranty expired. :cry:
2. The toilet starts to overflow every time you flush it. (Did I mention Jake has had a stomach bug coming out of both ends this weekend so the toilet has been overflowing A LOT - he keeps flushing it. Oh - we only have one bathroom too!) Jake's also been through about 20 pair of underwear just today and no telling how many towels have been used to clean up because sometimes he can't make it to the bathroom in time.
3. We had a window break in a storm earlier this week (something hit it). Luckily, my dad was able to fix that one over the weekend. The toilet will have to be taken out and he can't do that until later. :(
4. One of my kitchen cabinet doors decided to fall off - no clue why! It's barely hanging on again thanks to my screwdriver abilities (can't find the drill to get it on there tight).
5. I had a tire blow out and had to replace two of them last weekend.
6. I think Brandon is feeling bad too because he has been throwing temper tantrums from HELL the last two days.
7. The operator lady keeps cutting us off before we get a chance to say goodbye. Our calls are limited to 20 minutes, she warns us at 15 minutes, and cuts us off 30 seconds later. :grr:
8. The boys together have lost like 7 teeth since he left. The tooth fairy is going broke and tired of staying up late to play toothfairy! lol
9. Grocery shopping with the kids means the bill will be twice as much as normal.
10. I had a girlie appointment on Friday, and I got a call on Saturday telling me I had inconclusive results on my PAP and needed to do it over again. :cry: Luckily this is not the first time it's happened and last time everything was A-OK!
11. Did I mention I'm also PMSing now too so the last two days worth of things have seemed a lot worse than they probably actually are.

The past two weeks have SUCKED! I want to sit down and cry, cry, cry. I've managed to get some of the stuff fixed, but the rest, I have no clue what to do about it. :(

I'm usually not this helpless - I promise. It's just been too much all at once.

Aw, Wynter. Hang in there. You're right when it rains, it pours, and it always pours when they're gone.

:HUG: Wynter things will get better, just hang in there. Remember, the best remedy for PMS, is wine and chocolate LOL at least that is what I do. If nothing else, it will make everything not look so bad. Here's a cheesy cliche, but it is always true, after every storm there is a rainbow, just hang on, everything will get better. :HUG:

:hug: I'm so sorry. Hang in there, sweetie. Things have to start looking up. :fingerscrossed: (btw., I've noticed the same thing..when the hubby is gone that's when it seems something bad happens. I wonder why that is. :irk: )

Although if you're a cute old lady or you make him breakfast, he'll usually only charge $20 if it was an easy fix. Maybe you could bribe a plumber with food. ;)

Erm, plumbers aren't cheap. Jackson won't even get out of the truck for less than $80, and if he has to go under the house it automatically jumps to $500. Pulling a toilet isn't as hard has some of the other stuff he does though, but paying for a new toilet plus a couple hours labor would run you a fair chunk of change. :( Definitely enlist Dad's help. How are the boys this morning?

That's what I would do!

Wow, that much? I'll wait until my dad can get here! lol I'll keep plunging away until he can fix it.

Wow, I hope things look up for you soon Wynter! And plumbers can be really expensive. Get estimates from a few, or go with someone's recommendation.

I'm so sorry all of this is happening to you all at once Wynter! I'll send some good vibes your way! :hug: As for the plumber, around this area they charge at least $80 an hour, so if you can find someone that would do it for you for free, that would save you mucho dinero!!

I think the problem is our cable plug really because the Xbox isn't working either. If I put it on a channel where nothing picks up, I still get the static screen with the noise it makes. The tv works, the 360 works, the cable box works - just not together! lol I'm not that concerned about the tv so it can wait until Jason gets back. We have two smaller tvs in our room & the kiddos room. We've been talking about upgrading to a LCD tv and putting it on the wall to save some space in the living room so maybe it's time to do that? lol We're supposed to have some bad weather tonight so I'm more annoyed I have to watch it in the bedroom, but really, no biggie. We're not big tv watchers and the boys can live without playing games on the 360. They only get to play it 30 minutes a day on school days anyway. Thanks girls. It's one of those "when it rains, it pours" type of months. I think I'm going to cave in and call a plumber. They can't cost that much, right? lol I've never used one before so I have no idea how expensive they are.

Goodness, Wynter. That's a lot packed on you. I hope the boys get better soon and that things start looking up really fast. :hug: I don't know much about warranties, but maybe SOMETHING can be done about the TV? One day after the warranty ends is ridiculous... I mean, a rule is a rule, but maybe you can get a sympathetic ear.
