2010 Has It Out For Me...

...I am convinced!

So far, 2010 has not been the best year of my life thus far. While I am aware it could be worse, I am also aware it could be much better. Please pardon me while I take a few moments to recap these lovely events I have endured in the past 4 months.

Here's what I've come up with so far (in chronological order):

1. Bye-Bye Brakes

Just days after I spent the time to re-vamp my budget in efforts to pay off my vehicle, my brakes decided they had enough. At least, I hadn't made it to the bridge just yet... I could of killed my self or someone else...eeek! Mind you, I was just getting off work, heading home. Over $800 later, I got my wheels back!

2. Flat Tire

Of course I just couldn't dodge that nail in the road. My tire just had to gobble it up. This time I was driving around at work, on the clock. Sure enough they were able to convince me I needed not only one but two brandy-spanking-shiny new tires...$200 later...

3. Freezer Shit The Bed

...and the rest of the refrigerator is now beginning to seek revenge. Read about it here: R.I.P My Dear Freezer

4. Apartment Flooded

Please refer to this post as I am too lazy to ramble on about it for the millionth time.

5. Changes In My Workplace

While change is inevitable, it does not mean I have to like it! Several of my co-workers are leaving us! Many to better-improve their own personal situations...but still...they shall be missed (and my work load be effected by this). But good for them!

6. I Don't Fancy Damage To My Rear

To my car that is. Or any other 'rear' for that matter. Yep. At work ( and on the clock, again) I was rear-ended by an older gentleman on April 15th. Thank goodness for insurance is all I can say. Over $4000 in damages, a rental car, and inconvenience...I am lucky enough to have escaped injury free! I will probably be driving this rental car around for another week at least.

And it's only April!

I use to believe bad things came in threes. Boy was I wrong!

I totally get that things could be much worse. I believe it is healthy and necessary to vent, rant, and rave at times. This is where I get to do just that. Thank you for listening.
