>Bad Week

>It's been tough a couple days. First, the blower goes out on our gas furnace. On Tuesday night we smelled a horrible burning odor coming through the registers. I ended up calling the fire department to check it out. Nothing was on fire.

When I woke up in the morning, it was 63 degrees inside the house. The blower stopped working. Then, on the way to taking the kids to school, Carries crashes the car. No one was hurt. But some guy's poor Vanagon was gone. Our car sustained $4000 in damage.

Tonight, all is well, We're just a little poorer. We have a rental car, the heat is on, and I just want to watch a little television.

As I like to say, "It coulda been worse." (I love that saying because it's both optimistic and pessimistic at the same time).
