It's Little Friday Link Up Time!!!

Thursday, March 20, 2014

Little Friday.... hmmmm can I just skip this day altogether??? Why you ask? Well, yesterday my garage door opener broke, just broke. Then my oven died... deader than a doornail. Last night I couldn't sleep cause I might be just a tad stressed... I don't know maybe just a little so I got up at 3 a.m. to take a hot shower. Sometimes that's the only thing that works.  Bad idea... very very bad.

I woke up this morning to a hot water heater gushing water into my garage (and subsequently the basement below). I am trying extremely hard not to burst into hysterical ugly cry cause I can't afford to fix any of this. No really! How many days do you think 4 people can live in a house with no running water? Or maybe just ice cold running water?

If I make it thru this day without killing my ex-douchebag someone, bawling my eyes out again, throwing myself off a bridge/cliff/barstool, drinking wine until I pass out and need a cold shower or selling my soul to the devil in exchange for a break I will be back tomorrow. But right now I am off for a hot date with a plumber referred to me by a friend... and he happens to be single. Even in my moments of despair my friends are still trying to set me up. I'm not sure I'm in the mood.

Universe you are really pissing me off today. Thank God I showered last night.

See ya on the flip side I hope!

  1. I feel your pain...and your hysterical cry, been there, done that. Being a single parent and owning a home, I have decided, are two combinations that don't go well together. Don't get me wrong, I love the fact that I bought the house on my own, and that the kids have a yard to play in, but when it's time for repairs or replacements I want to throw in the towel, cry my eyes out, and sell the house as is to some sucker who can fix the shit himself! Hoping everything works out for you!!

    1. Being a single parent is so unbelievably hard when you are the one who provides everything for them. But we just do what we have to do and I try to ugly cry in the shower, no one can see you in there:)

  2. Ugh. When it rains it pours. :/ Sorry you're on the receiving end of this.

  5. MAN when it rains it pours!! I am sorry you are going through all of this, if I was in ATL I would be there to help a sista out!!!! Plus my husband can fix anything - so I would bring the wine and he would bring the tools. If you ever just need to vent, I'm here.
