A day to remember

Next time I feel like complaining about something I will remember January 27, 2011. That will help me put things into perspective.

I started the week by getting my finger smashed in the car door, which resulted in a broken bone and a finger tip that needed to be stitched back on. Today, that doesn't seem so bad. The reason? A very much unplanned renovation is now taking place in our house. A re-reno of the reno only a few years old.

You see, this morning we were greeted by water flowing though the ceiling in the kitchen. Not really the thing you want to be waking up to. The old plumbing in the upstairs bathroom has obviously reached its expiration date, so now we have a lovely big hole where our kitchen ceiling used to be. And to think that I just the other day was sitting on our couch in the family room, looking around and thinking to myself how lovely it is not to be looking at surroundings in various degrees of disrepair!

 Maybe I should go and buy myself a ticket for the big draw tomorrow night, for surely it must be time for some good things to happen?
