My First World Problems

And now my iPod's frozen on me. And I spent all my money on a new coat because my old one needed replacing, and plumbers because my toilet was leaking and my kitchen faucet was coming apart, and an attempt to pay down my credit card bill a little after charging my entire January vacation, leaving myself about $100 for the week for groceries and sundry expenses, only to discover today that this stupid book club I belong to sent me a $70 textbook I didn't want because apparently I never got their "respond to decline your featured selection" e-mail and have charged my debit card for it, so now I have essentially no money at all until I either get paid or get the book returned, unless I want to dip into my savings, which I don't. And my iPod has frozen up on me and will not reset, and and my three most comfortable pairs of jeans all got holes in them at once, and my new favorite TV show just went on hiatus, and I still need to go to the eye doctor so he can tell me I need bifocals after all, which I'll also have to charge on the credit card.

Please send chocolate. Also large piles of cash, an iPod expert, someone to fix the scratch on my car, and a new piar of eyeballs. Thank you.

[ETA: Hey, I got my iPod working again! My life is suddenly looking up! Slightly. Hooray!]

    1. Eh, you're fine. If I really desperately needed cash, I could always raid the savings account, I'm just trying to be Ms. Responsible Adult and not do that unless I really have to. It just annoys me how all the expenses seem to come at once, and Murphy's Law always strikes as the most inconvenient possible time. I know you know the feeling. :)

  4. PS that sending money on April 1st was meant to be a joke because I was going to send you money April 1st anyway :)

    1. Heh. OK. Although I don't know whether I should trust anything you send me on April 1st. :)
