Behold...an image of Beckarooo laughing..better to laugh than cry.
Murphy's Law known also in our home as "the norm", continues to control our very existence. Now without trying to sound melodramatic ;o), I have to first apologize to everyone, and ESPECIALLY to Lynn aka the Rocky Creek Mom, Miss Jean in the Garden, and my very dear friend ( and the Beckarooo's God-Dawg Mother, Miss Becky of Modesto. I owe you all a phone call, a parcel, and my undivided attention...( count on the first two tonight! )
I would like a full week here in my home where things do not go wrong....that would be my idea of a real vacation. Being able to come and go whenever I please, without ANY responsibility. Being able to turn on the AC, the phone, the 'puter, the t.v., and last but not least, my 1998 Jeep Cherokee.
Within the last 5 days, all have gone haywire...blown up, blown out, crackled and died, vanished from my view, and in a nut shell, ceased working.
Comcast and the heat took care of all five of the above....no phone, no Internet, no t.v., no car, and no AC when it hit 90....and no I have not lost my mind...yet...that will come later, when there's time.
I will only tell you about the AC...the compressor went, on our 18 BTU, the mother AC...you do NOT want that to happen with a elderly mother and a menagerie...ever.Now the one good thing that happened......the doors are coming on Thursday. They were supposed to be here in two weeks...when they arrive and are installed that day, it will be two months...we assumed that two WEEKS meant two weeks.....
Do you all remember the movie, "The Money Pit"....that movie was written with our home in mind.
No, my darling puppy, we are not ready to give up yet...we believe in fairies....window and door fairies...REALLY, I am clapping my hands and my feet...they gotta come or I am outta here. The only way that we can open or close our porch door, is by lifting it up and banging it, til you hear it catch...couple that with Mom going in and out a hundred times a day and you begin to see why I am having a meltdown....and one made much worse by a lack of AC......brain melt down, mental melt down, ice cream melting before you can get it to the table.....MELT DOWN.....the Summer of 2010...one to remember.
Again, we apologize...we are trying to catch up reading blogs, shipping TY gifts, shipping ETZY stuff............just catch up!
