A Series of Unfortunate Events

I think I'm having the WORST week ever. My husband and I are sick with some chest cold thing that has us up all night - we haven't slept in over a week.

It feels like a "Series of Unfortunate Events" around here. First, I lost my keys and was almost 2 hours late for work. Great. That went over well, let me tell you.

Then, our septic backed up (AGAIN) so we had to have someone come out and fix it (the 3.5 year old nephew came over for a visit and Grandpa thought it a good idea to let him go "pee-pee" alone ... need I say more?)

And now? The final straw is that my computer's hard drive crashed yesterday! Bad sectors. Luckily, it is on warranty but it does mean that I don't have any of my stuff until I have rebuilt the dratted thing! ARGH.

I hear we just had an earthquake. It didn't originate here but we could feel it. My cupboards were doing the "shake, rattle and roll" ... hope nothing is broken.

It can only get better from here, right? The sun will come out tomorrow ... I'm sure of this. It's only Wednesday for goodness' sake!

Hey, I didn't feel a danged THING!

TYPical Scarborough.
Nothing happens;)
My husband said our house did what you said, but I wasn't home, sooo.
I missed it.
jeeez, and WHEW, at the same time:)

Hope your entire human and non-human crew are back up again soon.
Full power, Scotty!

Sure hope that you and your husband feel better. Those kinds of nights are miserable!! And I remember the days of losing my keys and being late for work.....WRONG way to start the day!!! And the septic....UGH! That's not good. Not good at all.

Wishing you good karma and better days!!

Poor you. There is nothing as unnerving as an earth tremor.
