This house is jinxed!

Mommy is furry upset right now. Everything has been going wrong with everything in this house for so long and now it's her refrigerator! The repairman is coming over in an hour to look at it but jeez! What else!? First it was mom's car. After putting almost a thousand dollars of repairs to get it to pass inspection, the head gasket started leaking and mom had to stop driving it. She cannot afford that kind of repairs. So after all that money down the tubes the car has been sitting in the garage since late winter. Then it was the oil tank, the water heater, the furnace, the plumbing leak, the bees, grampy's car, the new terrible neighbors, now the fridge and grammy is not doing well. She has some rash all over her body they can't figure it out. She's got to go for more blood work tomorrow but it's been going on for over a year and getting worse. Why does everything go wrong here? Mommmy don't cry, we're here for you! Mom is so sick of it. We know things go wrong all the time for everyone but this has been a rotten year and it's not stopping. We know there are a lot of sick kitties and sick parents that need purrs and we feel bad for asking but can we have some purrs too? Mom is exhausted and can't take anymore of this. Sigh, I thought kitties had it rough but a human's life is full of poop too.

Thanks everyfur, we love you
A concerned and sad Lacey

WeBees a purring fur your Mom, Lacey.
Meowmy will pray, too.
Our pawrents know only too well about 'this old house' syndrome, and its not fun at all. We know about uncooperative jalopy's too, UGH!
Pawppy's car is in the shop right now...and he got a phone call...you need this and that and the other...more than what he took it in fur, sheesh:(

There is a wee spot of fun today, though, because Finney is a DDP!

Hang in there, Lacey & Finney's Mom!
We love you!!

We will certainly purr for your Mom and grandma too, that they can figure out what is wrong. Life sure can be crappy and it seems like it is one thing after another. We know that feeling too, you hate to even get out of the bed in the morning because you wonder what else could possible go wrong.
A semi funny story...we thought our fridge was on its last legs (it is 19 years old). It makes a horrible noise when it shuts off. Mom went to look at new fridges and the salesman asked about our old one. Instead of trying to sell Mom a new fridge, he actually told her how to fix the problem and showed her exactly what to do. I hope he doesn't work on commission!
You are in our purrs that some brighter days come your way. You are so loved by us and we are pained to see so troubled. Hugs, purrs and love from all of us.

thanks everyone, so much. Skylar that's how mommy feels too. She loves to be asleep because she has no problems then and nothing breaks! It's peaceful! Then she gets up and OY! Actually this fridge is new from about 2002 or 2003 but I guess old by today's standards. sigh.

Gosh everyone, thanks for understanding! Mommy never wants to sound like she's complainin' but jeez, enough! Ya know? The repairman is here now so maybe you could purr he can fix this! We love you guys, thanks so much everyone just for being here and listening. That's all we really need sometimes, is for someone to listen.

Speaking of starving children -- I'm hungry! I hate this durned diet!

Fortunately for us, the husband is very, very handy and fixes just about everything, though sometimes mom wishes he would break down and get a new one.

Still purring!

Thanks everyone, the fridge is fixed. All he had to do was oil the motor. $95 FOR THAT! Every single time mommy wants to save to fix her car, something else happens to take her money. It's like someone does not want her driving that thing. Monster, grampy used to be able to do EVERYTHING. But he can't no more, he can't even stand long enough to take something apart. Mommy says she's gonna have a beer later after dinner, MOL. I guess beers are good for this kind of thing, I don't know. She says it helps take the "caca edge off".

You sure are right about that Siggy! Can't do without a fridge and freezer! Meowmy hardly has any food left in there as it is, can't let it go bad.

Sometimes ya just gotta have a brewski..nuff said. It surely does seem like avalanches of bad luck come much too often. I always try to look at the positive side, but sometimes it is hard, and it is like "ok if this is a test, am I passing cuz enuf already!" We keep having that issue with our work trucks. Just got some $ saved & the tranny went out. Gotta replace it - that truck is our lively hood, then the tires went...but then I look at my babies, and seeing how Felix is thriving & is so gosh darn adorable, it makes it better. Only advice I really got is, take a deep breath, hug Finney & Lacey and have 2 beers! It will get better my friend. I have a little caption on my fridge that says, "just when it gets so rough, that you think you cannot go any further, hang on, because it is just a bend in the road" We send hugs & purrs & a few pawtappies for good measure. xoxo Tiggie, Maizy, Smitters, Felix & Renee

We are purring for better days for your Mom, we know she has many many hard days...Mom says when it rains it pours...and boy can it...we have those kinds of days too....so we understand how your Mom feels....

Our frig has a broken part that keeps the freezer closed, Mom has a repair man out, he doesn't carry the part so dad had to order it and of course he ordered the wrong one for our frig...Mom has to always push on the freezer door...luckily it wasn't something worse, we also had our dishwasher all over the floor....new one and boy was Mom and Dad in for a shock at the cost of a new one....so you see I think all humans have it bad at times....

Tell your Mom to hang in there, have that beer and take it easy. Life is too short to be so upset and mad...

Sending purrs, hugs and love

Xena and family

It seemed at times to my mom that as soon as she had some money in the bank that there was something to repair or break down. Someone upstairs has a strange sense of humor. Now with her fingers crossed, she feels hopefully that nothing bad comes down upon us. She is sending some good feelings and purrs from us that you have some good luck due to you...as for gasket jobs, they are a pain. The car is never the same after one. She is completely familiar with them She had one done some years ago and one week later a car went through a stop sign into her car's engine. It was an off duty security man. She gave up and got another car. Now, she has joined Angie's list which has helped a bit. You are so overdue for good things that it is crazy. Lady luck, and a bouquet of good luck Irish clover should help....purrrrrrrrring for all of you..

Lacey!
You are jumping into a bag on FB! Meowmy just clicked on the FB section at the bottom of the community homepage, and when she scrolled down you were there!
Since we don't do FB, we can't comment there...sigh...
Yesterday we were there in our basket, and a bit befur that Minko was there in a bunny suit, MOL! We didn't even know, so now meowmy just checks it out this way...

(But no, we are still not going to do FB, MOL!)

What a lot of likes and comments!

We had about 800 likes, OMC!
Purred by: Lacey (Catster Member)

August 29th 2012 at 8:44 pm

We just saw that guys. Big Harry's meowmy sent us a note telling us. Neat!!! 800 likes is a lot! I think we only have about 353 so far.

But that was after about 36 hours..and tonight there is yet another comment...so keep checking!
Whe we first saw 'us' there we had about 265 likes...

MOL! Pipo is sitting beside me and chirping at me to pay him some attentions...so we gotta go!
Keep checking your likes...maybe you can make a comment under your picture to direct your 'visitors' to that site. Can you post links in there?
Purred by: Lacey (Catster Member)

They maybe think you are going to make a profit...fat chance, right?!

They post links to your page with the pic, (At the top), so maybe you can make a reference to your site in your main pic,or name?
You know, like 'Lacey-See Link to IBD Kitties' or: 'Lacey, Hostsess-IBDKitties'

Hi Lacey, my brofur and I are sending along some purrrs! It's always something, that's what Mom says. Hope that fridgie starts working and things get better. Mom had a rash on her arms a couple months ago and it was really a bad time.
Purred by: Lacey (Catster Member)

August 30th 2012 at 8:44 am

Nadia I think your mom and mine used to say we liked Gilda Radner from Saturday Night Live cause she used to say "it's always something" all the time. MOL. I'm sorry your mom had a rash, does she know why? Grammy is covered in itchies today and the docfur can't fit her in. She refuses to go to the ER. Hi Anna! Thank you sweetie, we agree! Good mews would be so much sweeter at this point!
Purred by: Nadia (Catster Member)

August 30th 2012 at 8:55 am

The funny thing was it didn't itch. Just blotchies all over her arms. It looked BAD and was making her worried. She put some different things on it and and eventually it went away. Maybe something outside got on her arms or maybe stress, but since it didn't itch that was unusual...? I hope your grammy's goes away. My great grandma used to have some psoriasis (why is there a 'p' there?). Yeah, we remember Gilda and she even wrote a book about that. Sad though, too.
Purred by: Lacey (Catster Member)

August 30th 2012 at 9:02 am

Grammy is itching herself raw and the doctors don't know what it is and seem like they don't even care really. We are a big city and have only ONE dermatologist here. That's nuts! He's a jerk grammy said. She's got it on top of her head, arms, legs. She's red and blotchy. Mom thinks it's psoriasis too but what can we do about it? Mom is going to the store in a minute and she's going to ask the pharmacist. Sometimes they are more help than a doctor.

Oh Gilda, mom misses her humor so much. Mom says she was one of the funniest women she ever saw on tv. Rosanne Rosanna Danna!
Purred by: Nadia (Catster Member)

Momma has an inspurrational quote that says, "If money can fix it, it's not a problem." She says it helps her remember what's important like your health and your loved ones. Sounds like your Mom has quite a few problems anyhow. We'll purr that things get better for her and your family. *headbonks*
