Am I Putting off Bad Electromagnetic Vibes?

I must have a magnet in my pocket. In the last week the printer has stopped printing and NOTHING I try to do will make it start again. I've re-installed new drivers, tried plugging it in directly (we have a wireless router), blah, blah, blah -- WON'T WORK. Kevin has some luck with it by re-setting his IP address every time he prints.

THEN... to make matters worse, our TV picture is GONE, kaplut, black. Granted, we've had this television for, what 17-18 years???? Kevin bought it before we were married. It's been a GREAT television, but now it's dead. I'm too cheap (or broke or both!) to want to spend money on a television, so for now, we've brought down our 19" from the bedroom and are using it. It looks miniscule compared to the 37" we had. But, hey, it serves it's purpose.

I've gone online and looked and looked locally and I'm just not feeling the need enough to want to buy either one right now.

Pray that I don't blow up anything else anytime soon.

I have spent the evening at my mom's house doing laundry, because my washer decided to break! Yipee! I had 8 loads to do and that wasn't even my older daughters clothes. I have to go back in the morning to get the rest of it. My printer has also not been working because apparently when we got the new labtop because the old one decided to crash the old programs don't talk with the windows vista, therefor I can't use the printer. I also had to replace my digital camera recently because the front screen cracked and you couldn't see anything including the pictures or any settings. What a nightmare. Then this morning my husband also noticed that one of our new pine trees blew out of the ground. He went outside to put it back in the ground the right way and since then it blew over again. We have had a ton of wind for that last day. I don't know what is going on lately but I don't have time or money for all of this. I feel your pain!

It seems that things always break at the same time! Around the time our washing machine broke, our computer wouldn't charge, and our power steering went out! Hoping your streak ends soon :)
