Warning: Complaining Ahead

This week is not shaping up to be a good one.

Yesterday we had our handyman out to fix a few things on the outside of the house – rotten boards, leaky spots, and so on. A few hundred bucks later, and our house looks – exactly the same. But less leaky, I guess.

Then our refrigerator started not refrigerating so well. This has been going on for a few weeks – the freezer conked out a while ago – and we decided to just live with it and not buy a new one, as the repair, we’ve been told, is not fool-proof and costs as much as a new fridge. So we’ve been limping along, but apparently now must get a new one.

The warranty, in case you were wondering, expired two months ago.

Did I mention that both caterpillars cleaned out our dill – AGAIN – and left, never to be seen again?

Can we just call this week and be done with it?
