Murphy’s Law

I think Murphy is summing it up pretty well for me right now:

“If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.”

“If anything can go wrong, it will.”

I’m staying positive, but ready for things to start looking up.  Last night we had a massive storm roll through.  Good news is that we got a lot of rain.  Bad news is that a section of my fence (and two other neighbors) was blown down.  A very close lightning strike also seems to have done something to the cooling system.  There’s no power to the thermostat so we’ve been without air conditioning all day.  (Yes, it’s hot – 100 degrees outside – probably 90 inside.)  Of course this isn’t an emergency according to the rental company so hopefully they’ll get back to me first thing in the morning.  I’ve submitted a repair request online. 

Aside from the frustrations, I think I still like being here.  I just wish a few things would start going right.  I do miss having my brother close by.  He probably could have fixed the AC issue easily.  Yes, I did check the breaker switches in the garage and it seems the heating/cooling unit is powered separately. 

I spent the day (before it got really hot) hanging up stuff on the walls.  I have a few pictures up as well as a few other items.  I still need a book shelf for the living room for most of my office items and I need about 6 bookshelves for den for all my other books.  I’m not sure where to put all my Marvin items.  I may try to spread them out among the bookshelves and such.  But that will have to wait for payday.  I’m really looking forward to payday.  I’ll have two paychecks this month.  I do need to pay quite a bit on my visa card though.

The rental company makes me think of the movie Brazil, where the airconditioning is also broken. I hope yours is fixed now! I'm sorry about the fence and hope some luck is coming your way :)
