Bad news: It’s raining which I despise

Good News: The rain is clearing the smoke and helping the firefighters win the battle
Did you notice how quickly the seasons changed? I was Summer when the smoke in and we couldn’t see anything for well over a week. Then the rains swept through and boom...it was Fall.

Considering how many towns we lost in our country, I’m thankful for the rain.

Oregon has truly suffered; and I fear for landslides and flooding. Although I understand there's still a lot of fires spot burning underground...?

Our bad/good: Summer doesn't start here until August, so we're at the hottest and getting drier every week. We still have morons firing off fireworks too. Good news: Getting into the Autumn and Holiday spirit anyway; making Christmas soap tomorrow, painting crafts, dragging out Halloween.

Good news: my husband replaced his death trap of a vehicle (and found out his credit score is AMAZING)

Bad news: my husband spent many thousands of dollars and locked us into a payment plan thats more than my mortgage (though to be fair, my mortgage is very low)

Bad news: our truck wouldn't start yesterday.

Good news: Triple A came out and replaced (not just charged) the two batteries. Didn't know that they have a battery replacement program, and their price was lower than the local battery shop.

Bad news: Truck still wouldn't start.

Good news: Triple A driver towed it straight to our mechanic, who was available to work on it right before leaving on vacation. Normally he's booked out a week ahead.

Bad news: To get the truck to start, mechanic had to disconnect the new CarPlay radio with backup camera that was installed a few months ago.

Good news: The radio installation company looked up the parts that were used, and determined that they used the wrong wiring harness. They will fix this for free.

Bad news: They don't have a service opening for three weeks.

Good news: Bottom line, the truck is working just fine now. Since we sold our car very cheaply to a friend in need, the truck is our only transportation. I keep thinking maybe we should get a second vehicle, but each time we get through a "one-car crisis" like this one, it reinforces the fact that we are just fine with just one vehicle. I'm cheap and don't feel like spending the money to purchase, maintain, or insure another one.

Bad news - we had a pipe break inside our living room wall. We got a plumber in to repair the leak and a company in to dry it out - now we are having a really hard time finding someone to replace the drywall.

Bad news: 6 inches of drifting snow fall (so 1ft in places), and snowblower broke tonight, and we have a 300 ft driveway.
Good news: We have two shovels!

Bad news: As my rump is thawing and regaining feeling, it's itching like crazy.
Good news: Nobody cares if I'm walking around scratching my rump. 😊

Good News: Washing Machine Delivery today (for house where my eldest son is now living) - I won't have to do his laundry much longer. (He currently has no car, and snow is everywhere here, so he can't get to a laundromat on his own at this point.)

Bad News: It's going to cost $850.00 for the plumbers to create a legally (per building inspector) approved vented drainage system for the Washer. I had been told they could do it for $400.00 a while back, but apparently the B.I. nixed the proposed plan and now I am stuck with this expense and not happy about yet another financial drain. 😒

Irritation on top of irritation on top of irritation has put me into such a foul mood, and I have decided against going to Washington DC next week. I don't want to risk the danger. I told Hubby to go without me if he still wants to go. They probably won't deploy him now anyway, but we still don't know for sure. He and his co-workers are trained for security, but they don't wear riot gear or carry weapons, so they probably won't be needed. So if he goes, he will be putting himself at risk IMO, but I have chosen against putting myself at risk. I am feeling very badly about having to make this decision, however because I really wanted to be there. 😿
