My mother always told me that bad things come in threes, and strangely enough she usually seems to be right, but not this past month. My DH rolled his car after being cut off by a semi on his way to work. His car-which we have only had 4 months, is totalled, and we can't afford another down payment on another one. Silver lining is he is fine, which is for me a miracle in an of itself, the car looked awful. item number 2 is our ground floor bathroom, the toilet started leaking from the tank, and I didn't find it till there was about an inch of water on the floor, the water flowed into our computer room. Then Christmas day my washer quit working, I found this out, after finding that my 3yo, had spilled nog all over my bed. Then dec. 29th we wake up to a very cold house, my boiler had quit working. when its 9 degrees outside, no heat is a nasty thing. We have space heaters, but that means I can keep 6 rooms bareable but the hallways are still freezing. My 3yo, has bacterial pnumonia, and the baby has an ear infection,
I think I am about at the end of what I can handle.
