Why I've been MIA...or...DON'T TOUCH THAT, Haven't you broken ENOUGH?!?!

Is there a person in the Greek myths that is the opposite of King Midas? You know, the guy that touches things and they turn to there someone who touches things and they turn to sh*t? Because if there is, I'm pretty sure I would be able to trace my lineage back to him. It's been an interesting couple of weeks.
First, my dryer broke. You know that, I already complained incessantly about it, but in the end I got a new life was good. Until my dehumidifier broke. Well, it didn't just stop working, it still takes moisture out of the air, now though, it deposits it on the floor directly beneath it instead of in the bucket where its SUPPOSED to go. Did I mention it was sitting on my living room rug when it decided to reroute? Guess how I figured out it was broken? Yup, I stepped on a saturated rug. Fun times, people, fun times.
Tuesday morning my dsl modem broke. I could go on and on about Fair Point and their HORRIBLE customer service...the fact that they cancelled my repair ticket and DIDN'T tell me, and that I JUST got my modem fixed TODAY, but...I won't...because frankly, I'm tired. I spent WAY too much time on the phone trying to fix what was going on and yelled at too many people who I'm sure don't get paid nearly enough to deal with "difficult" customers like me. I just need a break, man!
Yesterday in the midst of my Fair Point woes, my washing machine stopped working. Yes, my washing machine. *deep breath*
Did I mention we got 3ft of snow on Wednesday? That's not a typo. THREE FEET! Oh..and remember my greenhouse I got for my birthday?? Yes, it was out there, and now....its flat. Yes, there were flats in there...along with my potted rosemary plant from last year. I have no idea if there will be any survivors.
My husband is coming home tonight. I am unsure of whether I should give him a hug or not...I can't afford to break him....SOMEONE has to drag the washing machine outside.

3 feet of snow?! Not even funny. I am so sorry about your greenhouse. I would be so pissed.

Oh noooo, Stace! What a horrible time you've had. :( I don't know about the opposite of King Midas, but wasn't there a character from Lil Abner who had a rain cloud over his head wherever he went? You need to do a sun-dance and chase that rain cloud away. :}

I'm amazed how you can make such a hilarious post from such a horrible set of circumstances.

3 feet of snow?! Boo!

I'd cry if my washing machine broke.
