Again with the bad luck....

So this morning when I got up, our main computer had shut it self down overnight. I tried to boot it up so that I could log my BBT on FF. Well the computer told me that it hadn't been shut down properly and asked how I wanted it to boot. It got almost all the way up and shut itself down again. I left SA a message on his cell phone but he didn't have time to check it before he had to leave to take Bandit to MIL's house. He beat me home and the darn thing would not boot to save our lives. In the mean time, I went and got my hair cut and splurged on product not knowing that the computer wasn't even booting now. Needless to say, I was "paniced" when I found out. I just spent $55 and now I was going to have to buy a new computer. NOT A HAPPY CAMPER! After talking to FIL, we decided to go to Micro.Center and see if it could be repaired. The computer gods must have been happy with us because all it was a the power supply and FIL just happened to have a parts computer laying around that we could take the power supply from. YEAH! I finally replaced my external hard drive that crashed this summer and am now rebuilding my i.Tunes library as we speak.

Every time something bad happens and I react so badly, I begin to wonder if I am really cut out for this whole mom thing. I don't react well to stressful situations, I always expect the worst and get so pessimistic and bitchy that I can't even stand myself. Something to work on I guess.

Christmas Trees

Every family has their Christmas Tree traditions. Mine has always been lots of lights, a star on top and lots of ornaments.

SA has been minimal lights, Angel on top and minimal ornaments.

We compromised a little bit more this year and bought an angel for the top and I still think our tree needs more lights. However, I still got lots of my ornaments on there, including the ones that my great grandma and grandpa made.

We talked about it this year and are thinking about trying to replace ornaments. Getting rid of the ornaments that were bought before we were married and have no real emotional connection to either of us.

What started this Blog

I have been reading blogs for several months for something to do, for support, for curiosity and have contemplated creating one myself. After today, I figured it was now or never.

Let me start by saying that the saying between my husband and I is that we used all of our good luck when we found each other. We have a very happy marriage and truly enjoy being with each other.

That being said, every time and I mean every time we splurge or do something fun, the universe punishes us somehow.

Spent a weekend away for my birthday, came home to a toilet that had been running the entire weekend.

Bought a w.ii, the kitten we just adopted needed an emergency vet visit.

We get the Christmas tree up and were ready to go to the V.ikings Game and right before leaving we found a leak in the laundry room by the water heater. We caught it early but there is still some water damage that needs to be addressed.

Alas, everything happens for a reason and I will get more into that down the road.
