So here we are only about 3 weeks into January and the fun is already starting. I should start taking random courses in repair of all kinds. I keep having things break and stuff is wearing out so fast me and my finances cant keep up. The power was out for about 2 hours and I spent all day at a car repair shop but my car is still not fixed. Plus having my Mom go to the hospital didn't make things any better.
So my had something happen and ended up in the ICU which was very scary. She is home now but I do not know exactly how she is doing. They keep changing her medications but that only helps for a bit so that was weighing on me a lot.
We had a really bad snow storm so I missed 2 days of work. Then after I was able to get there the power steering that I just had fixed stopped working again. I will not be able to get it fixed for about 3 more days. After shoveling from the storm for 3 days, it makes it very hard to steer with out power steering. My fingers keep going numb even when I am not doing anything.
Of course with all the things I am trying to do around the house there is not a lot of time spent doing nothing. Due to the weather and the fact that my house is so old mice are coming in like crazy to find shelter. With 4 dogs it is not very peaceful with them searching for every noise they hear. I know this type of things happens this time of year in old houses but it is driving me crazy and my dogs are over it too.
Then my dryer died. No clean towels and the thing just went down. I currently have towels hanging in random places around my house so I can at least shower for work next week. I took the other one apart but it is really old and I don't want to get hurt taking apart something I shouldn't. My cousin said I could take hers but first I need to find some one to go get it with since my vehicle is going crazy.
I think maybe it is time to start taking some classes and then maybe I can repair this stuff myself. I hate not being able to get things done when I want them done. I do plan on getting some foam calk though and filling in as many spaces as I can in hopes that keeps the mouse problem to a minimum. If you out there have any suggestions for these situations I am all ears.
