Every Holiday season we have bad luck through the whole time. My husband is the one who has to fix everything which is why he hates the holidays, but it is frustrating for me too because I feel so bad for him that things are going so badly during these times. I can usually keep my Christmas spirit up, but this year I'm in the hating the season myself. Hopefully things will settle down, but with the bad luck of this year we have had anyway, I feel that the holidays are going to just continue with things going bad. The furnace acted up and took 3 visits with the furnace people before things settled down. The sewer pump went to hell and had to get a new one(a lot of work for my husband). The drains froze and took 2 days for him to be able to get them to work again. They weren't working again today and flooded the bathroom. Yesterday the drain for the washing machine was froze and forgot to check it first, so it flooded the bathroom also. The air compressor he uses to air up the tires on the 4 wheeler that has a plow on that he uses to do all the smaller areas that a large plow can't do that needs to be done broke down today and he had to fix that so he couldn't do the areas he wanted to do. The 4 wheeler was being stubborn about starting too. He put in a new wood stove in the addition, but took a lot longer to do than it would have just because of all the other problems that kept interrupting him being able to work on getting that done. Both of us have had bad luck with bashing up our knuckles and I took a chunk out of the side of my index finger on the left had while cutting pieces for the quilts I am doing(I think I was trying to go to fast and that's why it jumped the side of the cutting piece use for running the cutter against. There has been more, but I can't think of it all right now. I get super busy during the holidays and don't check in as much as I would like to. I'm trying to get some Christmas spirit, but I am not there yet. Hopefully I do get there before Christmas day. With the way things are going, I'm not holding my breath on that. My husband just wants to get 2013 over with because so many things have been bad this year. I'm glad I'm in DBT because helps to be able to talk with others who understand how this can make my bipolar depression, SAD, and other things I have worse and I'm not getting in too bad of a low. I think I'm in the same mode as my husband and can't wait for 2013 to be over. I hope the new year will be better! Hope all of you are having a wonderful Holiday season and not having my problems, deaths or other things going wrong.
