Could It Be.... um, saattan?

The title should be said as if you're the church lady from Saturday Night Live. (If you don't remember her, I can't help you! :) )

In the last 2 weeks:
  • WeaverDad's car has developed a shaking issue
  • Our oven's heating element caught on fire, causing quite a scene with Punkin and SnugBug running around saying "We need Daddy." Ah, where's the faith??
  • My hard drive crashed. Which is terrible for 2 reasons - 1. I have a business where I rely heavily on my computer. 2. I'm a complete and total computer addict. There I said it. (Notice I did not say that I actually planned on doing anything about it.)
  • The smoke alarms in our house are beeping - and we can't figure out why. One night we actually had to disconnect all of the them to make it stop! Remember the oven issue - (deep sigh)
  • The kids and I are sick with a head cold. Not bad sick where you can actually justify laying on the couch all day. Just sick enough that you want to.
Now I'm not saying that it couldn't be worse. Because obviously it could be TONS worse. And I'm grateful it's not.

But, I am saying that all these little things are sort of getting on my nerves and I wish they would stop. Maybe we will run out of appliances soon?? :)

oh man, what a crummy combination of issues! yeah, i so know the kind of sick you mean...seems like that's the only kind of sick this mama gets- would like and need to rest, but can't justify it. i don't have enough sick days banked apparently:-)

i hope all gets better soon, and who DOESN'T know about The Church Lady? probably the same lunatics that don't watch Seinfeld:-)

I've noticed things seem to run in 3's a lot. Whether it's 3 good things in a row or 3 bad things in a row. Hold on for your good things coming up :o)

Back to the days of the Pioneers - you can start cooking over the camp fire outside? WeaverDad can begin hunting for your food?

Liked your comment about not planning to change being a computer addict! I gotta talk to someone!! he he ;-)

Gosh, the devil is a liar. I declare in the name of JESUS your car will stop shaking, you will not be cooking in a campfire (sounds like a lot of fun though), and you WILL feel better.

Computer addict? Hmmm......What are the tell, tell signs?!!!

God Bless,
JEN

Praying for God's favor to surround you and your family. Sounds like you need a huge dose about now! My mom always said things run in 3's, like Penless :) Sounds like it's time for a triple dose of blessings for you guys.

Things can only get better, right? By the way, shopping for and then getting new appliances can be fun. ;-)
