First the garage door openers broke. Both of them.
Then the front door latch.
Then the front and back sprinklers. Again.
Then my digital camera.
Then my cell phone.
Then my watch.
Then one of the cars. The expensive one.
So my husband and I delayed exchanging holiday gifts.
Then the Christmas credit card bills for all the others arrived.
And an unusually high (but justified) car insurance bill.
And an unusually high gas and electric bill.
And a water and sewer bill that somehow doubled.
And receipts for two college tuitions, only both with balances due.
So if you find me hiding under a rock, please understand.
Right now it’s all I can afford.
