Okay, I guess this is just a vent, but I feel like bawling. My furnace died today. It was a piece of shit furnace, installed by the builders of this cheap ass house I bought. I have to buy a new furnace this year because next year, the government is going to require more efficient furnaces which will ad a lot to the bill because I'll have to replace the ducts if I put in a new furnace later. Both fans are going out because the damn furnace is overheating, and we have to act before our trip next week. First my knee gets torn up and it isn't healing so I'll be getting an MRI next month, then a pin breaks off a shelf in my refrigerator, falls into the drawer, when I wash the drawer out, the pin goes down the garbage disposal, wedges in there and gets the disposal stuck. Now my furnace. Twenty one hundred dollars later, and we're going on the trip because we have to go, we already bought the tickets and my boyfriend's folks need his help packing up their house. A thousand bucks, airfare for four. Then his car needs brakes and struts, eighteen hundred dollars. And his ex drops a bomb on us last night, we knew she had a cancerous tumor on her leg that has to be removed next Tuesday--it's fortunately non-invasive, so no radiation or chemo--but she has to be off work for six weeks. Six unpaid weeks, so he'll have to pay all the bills till the first of the year. And where am I supposed to pull Christmass out of, my ass or what?
