Wow. Remember when I said I was waiting for the other shoe to drop? Well, it has. This month is horrible!

My brother-in-law's house burned down on Sunday night. It was a beautiful old farmhouse that had been in the family for more than 100 years. Their three cats died. No one else was hurt, thank God, but they lost everything. It was heartbreaking to feel so helpless. There was nothing to do but watch it burn.

Not that any of my problems compare to that, but this week month has just plain sucked.

I had an emergency at work and my boss didn't answer so I ended up having to go into work at 2 am Monday morning. I hadn't slept, and I was totally exhausted and pissed.

My husband's car took a dump. It's going to cost too much to fix it. He's not working right now, so it looks like we will be a one car family for awhile.

My washing machine (which we just bought a few years ago) burned up over the weekend.

Oh, and our Christmas tree feel down- twice- yesterday. The ornament for my husband's parents (who are both deceased) broke.

This is just what has happened since friday. Seriously!

The other shoe has dropped!
