    Dont bother reading this. I am just griping.

    As I got in the car today to bring my kids to school I noticed water on my driveway. So, instead of going to the dr to get my blood drawn I stopped to investigate. My water heater had leaked. Ruined boxes. Hopefully the dresser will be okay. The idiot who installed the water shutoff valve to the house made it red and it says gas on it. The one to the waterheater was super hard to see and reach. Finally got it all off, put a hose on the heater and started draining it. Turned off the power breaker to the water heater.

    The land ladys brother came and installed a new water heater. Yay. (It is a 50 gallon one, and meant for 3 people. This is a 4 bedroom house and also, it is hot when you touch it. Guessing this was a cheap water heater) He decided to replace the valve that connectes to the house and got out his blow torch and put on a new one. This set off the fire alarms thoughout the whole house over and over and over agian. Incidently, my daughter doesnt wake up for fire alarms. Yay. Then he -almost- finished fixing the leak in the ceiling.

    Good right? Then my husband comes home and we try to turn the ac down. It had been hot all day but whats his name kept leaving the door open so I didnt worry too much. AC is busted. It is 90 degrees in here now.... and there are no screens on the windows. Since we moved in almost 2 months ago we have smashed 67 scorpions outside. I would like to keep them outside. Grr.

    She said she would send her friend paul over to fix the ac. then he decided not to come an hour later. grrr. he will come tommorrow NIGHT. I am feeling a bit like I am not paying rent for tommorrow. GRRR.

    Then we go to turn on the tv. Our LCD tv got fried today. It has vertical lines all over half of it. Since nothing hit or bumped it, that looks like it was hit by lightning.

    The garage light is also suddenly not workign (the land lady says it just suddenly had 2 light bulbs go out. Um okay)

    WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON? three huge things in less than 12 hours? Did something happen to our house?
