It's Pouring...

You know the phrase, when it rains, it pours? Well...it's definitely pouring here!

In case we didn't have enough turmoil in our house because of the whole job thing we came home from NJ on Wednesday to find that our air conditioner was dead.  Nice, huh?  We toughed it out with some fans and the windows open until Saturday and then we gave in and checked into a hotel nearby.  Milo (our cat) couldn't take the heat at all, so he was shipped off to my sister's and was enjoying the a/c.

After the guy came on Thursday and told us what needed to be done (whole furnace needed replacing...can you say ouch!), more stress hit us.  Here we are days away from the end of J's contract and needing to shell out some major dough.  Not good...  We were counting on our savings to help us in case J was out of work for any period of time not to get our a/c fixed.  But Murphy's Law, right??

Needless to say, the a/c is fixed.  We are definitely lighter in the bank account as a result, but what are we going to do?  Now we're just waiting to see if J gets a job offer this week.  It's looking good as the one company is offering to pay for his travel to NJ for another interview, but I'm not counting my chickens until they are hatched.  One to many metaphors here?? :)

Next week is my birthday.  Guess I'm hoping for some kind of miracle and J to have a job lined up by then, or at the very least nothing else goes wrong.  Is it terrible for my birthday wish to be that our life be a little easy for a change??
