new used but never used A/C unit Brian, David’s brother-in-law and best man, gave us is working, but it’s leaking water all over the floor. First one only blew out hot air. The frig is leaking water once every two weeks or so because it won’t properly defrost itself. The septic tank is leaking into the yard from the overflow pipe, thankful it has an overflow pipe otherwise it would be coming up into the bathtub and sinks. And, let’s see, the microwave dial is broke so you have to time it yourself. (SCREAM! Kick things! Scream again. Kick something else….) BUT
We’ve only got 99 days until the wedding. 99 days and counting.
And I haven’t begun to print the invitations. I haven’t begun to make the decorations. I haven’t done anything really but plan, and design the invitations and most of the program, but now I’m not sure that any of the planning is going to matter because we’re probably not going to be able to buy the supplies for the invitations (thanks to everything breaking) so…WTH?
Maybe I just need to get it all out of my system. I don’t want to “bitch,” it’s not my thing. Nor do I want to make David feel any worse than I know he already feels–we both feel awful about everything breaking, but he has this sense of responsibility because in his eyes he is supposed to be the “provider” and I love him for it, but we’re in this together so we are both supposed to be providing for each other. So I try not to “complain” or “vent” to him about all of it. But
HELLO! The house is shitting in the yard, the A/C and frig are pissing on the floor, the microwave has a mind of its own, and frankly, I don’t like any of their attitudes. So I’ve shut off the A/C that is pissing on the floor and cleaned up all the condensation???? I’m checking into who will come out and fix the damn septic tank. And maybe there is a trick to that A/C that Brian didn’t tell us about and it will be easily fixed. Trying to stay positive…Trying.
“Here’s life. It’s going to bite you in the ass. Life is biting you in the ass.”
We only have 99 days before the wedding.
Today while I’m at the shop I’m going to fine tune the invitations, redo the guest list, and figure out exactly what I can do for right now. I’m thinking I can get the paper to print the invites on, then once I’ve done that get the cardstock and envelopes from Michael’s.
