When It Rains, It Pours

I am once again blogging after a long relapse. Its not that there's nothing going on here, its that there's too much going on and pretty much none of it is house related. And none of its good.

I am going to be unemployed at the end of May. For the second time I am working at a K Mart store that is closing. Our last day is tentatively set for May 24. I worked at Princeton K Mart and they closed, so I swore I'd never work for K Mart again. I went to work at the one here in Vincennes last May, and now, not even a year later, they are also closing. That's 7 total years of my life I will never get back.

To add to that, my throw out bearing is going out in my car so I'm putting a new clutch in (it doesn't really need the clutch, but there's 80,000 miles on it, I've only had it for 5,000 miles, so we figured it'd be best to replace it now) and shifter that will work better with the new clutch. I also had to have more brake work done. James got a new truck. Its a diesel and he had to put a new thermostat and oil pressure gauge it, which somehow caused the radiator to spring a leak, which cost over $400.

We're getting a new (used) fridge this weekend. James parents got a new one and we get their old one, which is actually better than the one we have now. Bad news is James wants to drill a hole in the hardwood floor in the kitchen for the ice maker. I told him no because when we gut the kitchen it's not staying there. He said the kitchen won't be redone for a few years so we'll just fill the hole in later if the fridge ends up somewhere else :(

I got overcharged at Kohl's the other day. The cashier didn't give me a receipt though so I'm just out the 20 some dollars.

I have an "emergency" doctors appointment later today. I have a skin problem that looks like blood spots on my skin but its not bleeding, and its been going on for over a year but has gotten worse in the last three weeks so they wanted me in ASAP.

Most likely nothing will be done to the house till this summer. Instead of being "house broke" like many housebloggers are, we are "car broke". All our money has been poured into our cars to keep them going. For what we've put into them we could have finished the dining room and almost finished the bathroom.

Like I said: when it rains, it pours. One bad thing after another.

The only good news: I'm on spring break. No classes this week. My midterm grades are in and they're all good. Oh, and I just started the third book in the twilight series which took me forever to find because they're still selling out as fast as stores get them in. Now I have to find the fourth one.
