Am I the only one, that when things go wrong, it feels like a personal attack? You know I try not too, but when one thing after another happens...it's hard to not feel like you are being conspired against.
Friday afternoon we were given a notice that we would be having an 8 hour water outtage on Monday, from 8-4. 7 kids who can't use the bathroom? Hmmm...doesn't sound like my idea of fun. Luckily my friend was able to find someone else to watch her kids.
So I decided Sunday night, to get up really early and get a shower in and some laundry. But around 4 the power goes out. Of course. No alarm clock goes off. You would think that a power outtage wouldn't wake kids up in the middle of the night. I mean it's dark right? Wrong. All the air conditioning and fans go off also. Suddenly their rooms are stifling. Leaving me with 4 kids up very early.
It finally goes back on and so I go downstairs to check my email.No internet, no phone. We have a bundle pkg. so if one goes...they all go. Took awhile but we finally get it back on. Hurry to go take a shower before the water goes off. No laundry done but at least I will get a shower.
We keep checking and finally at 11am the water goes off. In the back of my mind I am wondering if they are going to get it back on by 4. We went off for the day and came home around 4. And the water finally came back on at 9pm. Now we have the opportunity to boil all of our water until further notice.
Today I hurried to catch up on housework. I am in the zone and getting everything done. I break out the vacum and all of a sudden it goes off.I think maybe it's the outlet.Nope. Won't work in any outlet I try. This vacum is less than a year old and now I have to go and get a new one. 4 kids and a dog with no vacum? yuck. Not happening. I can't find the warranty, of course. Which is just one more reason for me to finally get organized.
Frustrated? Yep. Annoyed? Yep. Will it get better? Yep...eventually!
