At this point, I have just one question. One, measly little favour to ask of the universe. I just want to know: when will the bad luck ever end?
I’m serious. I’m so over it. I just can’t handle any more of this, lurching from one catastrophe to another. It’s like, every time I think I’ve got my life together, something else just, all of a sudden, something else decides to break or fall apart in my hands and we’re back to square one.
I know, I know, reading through all of this, I seem a little ‘doom and gloom’, but I’m just over it. For the last three weeks or so, I’ve been trying to sort out window repairs after one of the frames split straight up the middle, making the thing no longer water/wind resistant. Let me tell you, the whole thing has been a process and a half. I guess at this point, I should be used to the fact that when a drainage tradie says 3-4 days they really mean 3-4 weeks. Anyway, just when that was all done and dusted and the window was finally fixed, something went terribly wrong with my drains.
For the first day or so, I decided I would do anything about it. If I just ignored it, that it would just go away. Unfortunately, problems don’t usually work like that. Three days in, it was clear I would need to call someone about getting drain inspections in Melbourne. I mean, I’ve never had to do anything about my drains before, but at this point, I know the process I have to go through. It’s not exactly rocket science, and to say I’ve done it a dozen times before would be an understatement. This time, the search term just happens to be ‘blocked drains Melbourne’.
