Monday Morning Wake Up Call
Hubby got up to take a shower for work and found no hot water. Most people know what that signifies. Yup. The water heater went some time during the night and our basement is full of water, soaking anything we had laying on the floor, the area rug, the furniture, the fold-up soccer chairs, our luggage, etc., etc., etc.
On Friday the front brakes and rotors needed to be replaced on the van, on Monday the water heater is shot. While I love and try to incorporate by the "rule of thirds" in photography, I dread and fear the "rule of threes" in every day life. I don't consider these two financial hits anywhere near "crisis" proportions. They are only annoyances and if they are the worst things to come our way, I'm fine with that.
I just also know things usually come in threes. I just hope #3 is as insignificant as the first two!
Not many husbands will smile as they begin the 8 hour long process of sucking water up from the basement!
