Caution: Cynicism Ahead
Without really realizing it… I've slowly morphed into a scrooge this holiday season. Things are just not going my way. At first it was just the purchase of new windows. Exciting right? Well yeah except it forced us into foregoing Christmas presents this year in order to save for the second half of that ginormous payment. Shortly after that, I totally bit it going down our front steps. Damn near busted a bone. Graceful. Next, I put a dent in the Camry. I just backed up, without looking, and ran right into the only parked car on our street. Genius. Then, my hours got cut at work. I'm forced to work only 32 hours/week. To top that off, our health benefit costs went up. Wonderful. Good thing I have a sugar daddy for now, but still. The day after that, I went to the dentist and found out I have to have three, THREE cavities filled. Technically it's two and a replacement of a silver filling but they also suggested I get sealants. Super. To top it off, the top strand of lights on our Christmas tree have died. Ironically, the star at the top is still lit. That means there's a bad bulb on that top strand. I went to Target to buy a replacement strand. Plugged them in. Didn't work. Great. I'm officially two bad events away from a country western song. I hate country western songs. Bah! Humbug!
