Isn't there an old supersition that bad luck runs in threes? To me, this mean that three bad luck events will/must happen before a streak of bad luck can be considered "over".
I hope this is the case, as my three have definitely occurred.
In the last 36 hours:
1) I have drowned my laptop with an exploding bottle of mineral water. The laptop has ceased to function. It is a dead laptop. It is no more. It is an ex-laptop. (Any Monty Python fans out there?...)
2) I have set our barbecue on fire, forcing me to use a fairly large fire extinguisher to douse the conflagration. Visualize really big flames. I've always hated that barbecue. Turns out, it hates me, too.
3) I discovered a rather substantial water leak in the downstairs "chick" room by stepping on the carpet and finding myself standing in 2 inches of water. It has since seeped into my son's room and is starting to come up through the tile floor in the hallway.
Once I have addressed all these unusual challenges, I will definitely post some pictures. I don't know whether to laugh or cry right now. I just feel kind of tired.
On the bright side, though,(literally) - take look at the current weather conditions here:
