S*N*A*F*U


You know what snafu stands for, don't you? Military for situation normal all f###ed up. Just another day, or weekend, or week in the life of a self-employed businessman:
-so as I say, I was sick last week, I am mostly over that, BUT I gave it to the missus for her birthday and she is terribly sick now
-my credit card on file with another business was STOLEN Saturday and is now canceled and a mess
-yesterday, the kiln I had just fixed broke down again
-there is a mysterious LEAK below the kitchen sink
and of course today
-the internet has been down almost 20 hours.

SO, naturally, I am nursing the wife, the kiln was a fairly easy repair and now the internet is back. I am going to try to fix that sink leak, because I am a little bit handy sometimes.
You just love it when things start go smoothly again. Amen!
I shall, of course, try to catch up with your blogs and thanks for your patience!

20 HOURS ???? !!!! OMG! Gary! However did you survive???

Sorry you gave Mrs. P. your cold! That wasn't very nice of you, you know. I'll bet you kissed her, didn't you!

Feel better, Maude!

Wow! That is like the perfect storm of things going wrong. The big snowstorm really messed up the city today, but that meant we had a SNOW DAY (yea!) so I slept in and cuddled up with two purring kitties. They weren't upset about the snow at all.

I was wondering where you were today... Hope it all gets better.

Wep said...

Feel better all the potter people! Let the Missus pet Penny's soft puppy ears. That should do the trick.

Peter said...

Oh my, you really went through a rough day...

Trust me, after some local incidents I know how it feels when absolutely everything goes wrong...

Spike looks like a nice way to warm up, if he doesn't squish the person he is warming!
Poor Maude ~ hope you feel better soon!

I am well-versed in SNAFU and FUBAR (which is exactly what your kiln might be, I am sorry to say)!

Credit cards seem like such a great thing... until they cause all sorts of trouble.
